    I'd like to know as well.

    There are instructions floating around telling how to connect to it via wi-fi, but as far as I know, it isn't the most elegant solution. http://cre.ations.net/blog/post/tether-your-iphone It's old, the state of iPhone hacking is much more advanced now.

    It'd be nice if I could just use it as a bluetooth modem, or even a usb one. When I use my phone as a modem, I tend to leave it connected for hours on end (12+), so USB would keep the battery charged.

    I hope someone would have a solution.

    The above mentioned uses the phone as a SOCKS Proxy server, and through that I imagine we can only use internet, as in Port 80, but I need to VPN to my corporation and work, etc. So a simple how to guide to use the phone as a modem would be great.

    I am yet to receive my phone, and once I will have it, I will put it to testing.

    Cheers

    Yes, the solution they have isn't the best. I applaud them for showing it done, but a better solution is in order. Hopefully with more and more apps coming out these days it will be coming soon. I can't imagine we're the only ones who use the phone as a modem.

    Unfortunately, I have to resort to using my Nokia E62 as my modem. So, it means travelling with 2 phones, plus a paperclip. A paperclip which I know I'll lose. As a matter of fact, it's at the trailer now, 2 hours away. Luckily I won't need it until I go up there again, but I know I'll be stuck one day without a way to remove the SIM from the phone.

    and you will end up scratching it just to try and get your SIM out and work through the other phone.

    I hope this wont happen though, there ought to be a solution before that occurs.

    Any updates with this? Still the only solution is the SOCKS Proxy? That isnt feasible for much other than browsing, maybe IM, but I need VPN, outlook and Remote Desktop.

    Thanks

    Hi

    Any updates? I am on 1.1.1, and seems there still isn't a mature solution to tether your phone iPhone out there. Anybody got some news?

    Thanks

    Default Tutorial to Tether on a Windows XP Laptop

    OK Heres a Tutorial to Tether on a Windows XP Laptop. Mods might wanna Sticky this. (Shouts out to Briansage)

    **NOTE this is on 1.0.2 . I don't know if this works on 1.1.1 .**

    All you need to add to your iphone is "Tinyproxy" and you can download that from installer on your iphone.

    No further configuration is necessary on your iPhone.

    **Note: I know this seems like alot of work but you only have to do this once and then whenever you want to tether, you just sign on**


    You need to create an Ad Hoc network on your Laptop.
    Get your Wireless Network Properties:
    Go to Control Panel >> Network Connections

    Check to see that Ad Hoc Networking is Available:
    "Wireless Network Connection" >> (Right CLick Menu) Properties >> (Tab) General:
    Connect Using: Click [Configure] to get the Network Card's Properties
    When setting up any ad hoc Wi-Fi network the channel, ip range, and ssid will need to be the same for the computers to talk to each other

    Under one of the tabs ("Advanced" on mine) there should be an Ad Hoc Channel setting that you should be able to modify. On my laptop, the default channel is 11, and this worked for me. Being that every computer and driver set could be different, you may want to check out notebookforums.com, if this part doesn't come easily.

    Click [OK] - This will probably close all open properties windows.


    Create the Ad Hoc Network:
    "Wireless Network Connection" >> (Right CLick Menu) Properties >> (Tab) Wireless Networks:
    Under Preferred Networks, click the [Add...] button.

    (Tab) Association:
    Network Name (SSID): whatever you like ("adhoc", for example) Your XP computer will boradcast "adhock", and the iPhone will automatically pick it up, once you've completed this part.
    Network Authentication: Open
    Data Encryption: WEP
    Uncheck [x] The key is provided for me automatically.
    Network Key: any 5 digits you can remember that aren't easily guessed. Once you set up this ad hoc network, from now on your computer will always broadcast the ssid when your wireless card is turned on. Keep yourself safe with this key.
    Confirm Network Key: Not trying to tell anyone what to do here, but entering the same key as above is wise.
    Key Index: Leave it. Should be "1" by default.
    Check the box that says: "This is a computer to computer (ad Hoc network); wireless access points are not used.
    Go back to Wireless Networks Tab. Click advanced (at the bottom).
    Click: Computer to Computer (ad Hoc) networks only. **NOTE whenever your finished Tethering change this back to: "Any Avialable Network"**
    (Tab) Connection:
    Checkbox [x] Connect when this network is in range: Check it.
    Click OK to close "adhoc" Properties. Your ad hoc network is now created, but don't close the Wireless Connection Properties yet...


    Set Your PC's IP on the Ad Hoc:
    (Tab) General:
    This connection uses the following items: Scroll to find "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) on the list. Select it and click the [Properties] button.
    (Tab) General - Leave this as it is. This controls your regular Wi-Fi connection to your router when not on the ad hoc.
    (Tab) Alternate Configuration - filling this out will allow your pc to automatically choose this when on the ad hoc, so you'll never have to touch any of this again.
    Checkbox [x] User Configured: Check it.
    IP Address: create whatever ip range you like. In the first post of this thread, the ip range given was 10.3.3.x, so likely you'll want to fill in something like 10.3.3.7 here. Anything but your iPhone's address which will be 10.3.3.2
    EDIT: to use tinyproxy in its default configuration, you should set the IP address to: 192.168.1.2
    Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
    Leave the rest blank.
    Click OK to close TCP/IP Properties
    Click OK to close your Wireless Network Connection Properties, and you're done with your PC. Your ad hoc network name will now show up as an available network for your iPhone to join.

    Just to have it in one post... as originally posted above:
    Set Your iPhone's IP on the Ad Hoc:
    Now on your iPhone, go to Settings >> Wi-Fi >> (Menu) Choose a Network.

    Your ad hoc network name will now show in this list. Select it, and tap the (>) arrow to get it's properties.
    IP Address: Static
    IP Address: 10.3.3.2 in this example
    EDIT: using tinyproxy's default configuration, the iPhone IP should be set to 192.168.1.1
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Leave the rest unchanged.
    Tap the arrow back to "Wi-Fi Networks", and you're done. The PC and the iPhone should now be on your spankin new ad hoc network.


    Keep in mind that if your iPhone goes to sleep, it will remove itself from the network, and your ad hoc network will cease to exist. Change your iPhone's Auto-Lock: "NEVER" to keep this from happening.

    To set up Internet Explorer to use the Tether:

    Open up Internet Explorer.
    Click on tools.
    Go to Internet Options.
    Click on the Connections Tab.
    Click on the LAN settings Button.
    Check the button that says: Use a Proxy server for your LAN. (Whenever your finshed Tethering uncheck this box to use IE normally).
    Enter your IP address in the box (192.168.1.1). The Port should be 8080.

    Thats It.
    You only have to set this up once, and whenever you want to tether just look for the Ad Hoc connection that you set up, just like you would anyother Wireless connection anywhere.

    Current all tethering solutions will rely upon some proxy/relay program such as a socks or http, and will therefore be limited.

    For a full tethering solution, there are 2 paths, both extremely hard to take:

    1) Make it work as a bluetooth modem. There are many pieces missing and it would require a lot of work.

    2) Take advantage of the OS X kernel and make it behave like a router. This is more feasible, but there is still one missing piece: ipfw, that is the part of the kernel that manages packet rerouting. The other piece is natd that can be easily added.

    So both path are hard to follow.

    The real question is WHY Apple decided not to do it either way? It's simple: the unlimited data plan is "based" on the assumption that you will not perform large downloads, let it run unattended connected transferring data, etc. Look at the AT&T plan restrictions.

    Also, it's like that for other phones like the Blackberry plans too. So there is a reason.

    If you really need to access other stuff like VPN, then for the time being, get another phone.
