    - Create WiFi Hotspot to connect mutiple laptops or mobile devices to share your iPhone's internet connection
    - 40 bit and 104 bit WEP Security to prevent others from accessing your WiFi HotSpot
    - Ability to enable USB and Bluetooth Tethering on your iPhone as well
    - Broadcasts the Network Name (SSID) - no need to fuss with creating an adhoc network on your laptop
    - Uses less battery and much faster then PdaNet due to native routing
    - Shows up and down bandwith usage

    NOTE: MyWi does not support the iPhone 2G. Please see your carrier contract for eligibility and/or additional fees.
    I played around with this all afternoon, and it seems to work great. A nice addition to this app is that you don't have to have tethering enabled from a custom ipcc either, you can enable tethering from MyWi. I had three laptops connected to my phone earlier this afternoon and they all were able to cruise the net quite nicely. MyWi sells for $9.99 and is a great application to have on your iPhone. There is a free 10 day trial available also

    cash edit: you can get it via rockyourphone

      Warning - This is long post - Disclaimer/Apology

      After reading a few posts here and elsewhere on the new improved ver 4 of MyWi I purchased and installed. That's where the story turns ugly. Rock was rebooting my iphone and froze on the logo.
      Thanks to some knowledgable folks here I learned that not updating anything Apple for six months can be a problem of its own.
      When attempting to restore iTunes gave a msg stating; This device is not eligible for the software/update requested.
      Or something to that affect.
      Updated iTunes and able to download my restore files.
      About 80 % there so far.
      Very anxious moments looking at logo and nothing recognizing the device.
      Restored device to iOS 4.02 (8A400)
      Now to downgrade, I go!#@%*&!

      had many failures downgrading until TyanColte volunteered to walk me through the process. I had been letting iTunes connect to apple server and it would not work. Then with TyanColte's help pointed iTunes to saurik's server and worked. Now Happy iPhone, JB and MyWi back. MyWi 4.0 is faster than previous ver.

      Bought MiWi 3-4 months ago, I think through Rock?. Since then I (accidentally) upgraded my iphone to 4.1 and lost MiWi along with a bunch of other apps. I understand Rock has been acquired by Cydia/Saurik (?) How do I get the app back without having to buy it again???

      You should be able to go to Cydia and it will recognize your license.

      Its't sad We all lost it, The developer will give you 10.00$ off if we buy it again.
      Nope what we want is what we pay for, it did work just as you know, the same as the 4.01
      I think any other app you will get it back through Cydia they'r good people

      After buying and installing this app, and tethering it to my laptop via wifi and usb, now my laptop wifi no longer has connectivity when connected to any wireless routers, so clearly this app has modified some wireless network system file. I can still plug directly into the router via LAN and get connectivty but not wirelessly. It connects to the router but no internet.

      Any help in restoring my laptops wifi connectivity would be greatly appreciated.
      I also emailed the vendor for support and if they resolve I will post here the resolution.

      (Yes I have confirmed with a second laptop that the routers are live with connectivity)

      Disregard. Problem identified.
      My Wireless Network TPC/IP Config was changed to a static IP and DNS configuration instead of being automatically assigned.
      Will have to test and recreate this issue to see if this is a glitch.

      Now it wasn't already made clear. Does MyWi work on 4.1? I'm running an iPhone 3G, jailbroken with redsn0w.

      My computer has no wireless NIC at all so if I wish to connect it to the internet I must plug it in - and I do not have any cables long enough to reach my router (which is what my iPhone and Mac connect to). Thus, I only want this for the USB tethering - if there is another app which enables this (and costs less than $20), I would appreciate knowing.

      Whenever I run MyWi, I get an error 10, which is a bus error. If MyWi does support 4.1, and there is no other app, I would appreciate help getting this fixed.

      PdaNet is not practical as I have no way of getting the desktop software required.
