  • MyWi Released! Turn your iPhone into a Wifi hotspot!



    Create a WiFi HotSpot with a press of a finger! Wherever you are - you can connect your laptop or other mobile device to your iPhone easily!

    Features:
    - 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



    Enjoy!

      Good grief. What's pointless is your post because you clearly don't understand either your phone or your laptop.

      This app is used when the only signals available to connect to the Internet are Edge or 3G.

      Your laptop connects to your iPhone via WiFi. Your iPhone connects to the Internet via Edge or 3G.

      Understand the point of this app now?

      The App killed my 3gs Wifi. Removed the app, restarted phone, restarted router, done evrything, but now have no wifi connection on phone. I turned tether on, then turned it off and that is when my Wifi got killed.

      This does not work on the 3GS (yet)

      The Wifi connection is showing up on everybodies iPhones in the office and even on my friends DS but not on my PSP


      Would really appeciate if someone tried to connect their PSP to their iPhone using this app and let me know if it's working or not

      EDIT:

      My friends DS can see the connection but cannot connect to the internet hmmmmm.... Someone try using their DS or PSP

      This sounds similar to the problem I am seeing on my 3G. In my case, it's got nothing to do with any part of my home wireless network. If I enable WiFi Tethering in MyWi, then disable it, wifi from my phone is dead until i reboot the phone. Wifi on the phone even shows I have an IP address on my network, but I can't access anything. I reported this to the vendor.

      It most certainly does work on a 3G S. It's the PC software that isn't compatible with the 3G S. You can download directly to your 3G S and it will work fine.

      My MacBook is seeing the iPhone hotspot but isn't connecting to it. Google loaded up then Safari just stopped working. As soon as the bugs are ironed out, I'm buying it.

      Also my iPhone is listed in a separate area than other Wifi hotspots and when I choose my iPhone the Wifi icons turns into a greyed out wifi icon with a little image in it , using 3GS.

      How do you figure a USB tether is faster? You are still limited to the 3G/Edge speed.

      Ok this may seem like an odd question but trust me it makes sense.

      I spend most of my life in hotels and have never been able to bring my xbox360 along to play on internet due to it not having a browser to type in the password for the hotel. Would this program allow me to create a wi-fi signal with the hotels wi-fi connection thus allowing my xbox to bypass the password check?

      You know what, before I could of swore I read it doesn't work for 3GS, don't know where but all I can see is that it doesn't work for 2G

      So its probably supposed to work for 3GS, my bad

      This is cool. However, if I just need to get my MacBook Pro online through my iPhone 3GS, what do I get using MyWi that I can't do with the unofficial tethering option? Does AT&T see the data differently?
