    Default iPad and MyWi
    For the life of me I can't get this to work. The iPad detects and connects to my iPhone network but whenever I try to connect to a website it won't load. Says there is not connection available.

    I'm using the free trial of MyWi and just can't get it to work. Anyone had success with this yet?

    I am on a full version of mywi and it seem to be working great! Only problem is that my phone dies really quickly.

    Stupid question, after you installed mywi did you restart your phone?

    MyWi works great for me. No problems whatsoever! No I did not restart the phone after install. I used the "No Rock" version.

    Check if your iPhone have no problems with your internet if yes, restart your iphone and try MyWi again.

    Works no problem for me too. Turn MyWi on.. try to surf safari. Also go to the setting in your iPad and make sure it has an IP address from MyWi also.

    Mywi only works on a jailbroken iphone right?
    Which means those of is with 3.1.3 3gs MC models are our of luck.

    Why exactly is MyWi denied on the app store?

    The same reason the iphones built-in ability to tether has been deactivated. AT&T won't allow it due to fear of the additional usage collapsing their already fragile network.

    Stupid question I guess...but here goes!

    Is it possible to access my laptops internet VIA the USB sync Cable for my iPad? Just a thought :-)

    Tag8402,

    It does not appear that anybody attempted to resolve your problem. I had the EXACT same problem, and here is what fixed it.

    On the iPad, go to General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings and then try connecting again.

    Good luck,

    Daniel

    I have successfully installed MyWi on two 3g's running 3.1.2, when I try to put it on my 3gs old boot rom jailbroken on new baseband, it loads and appears to have some functionality. Computers won't connect to it though. It shows up as a network rather than a hotspot. Is it because I am on 3.1.3? Rocks site says supports 3.1+, then says 3.1, 3.1.2 and doesn't list 3.1.3.
