Thread: iPhone Reverse Tethering

  1. #1
    Default iPhone Reverse Tethering
    Is it possible to use the internet on your computer/laptop on your iPhone? Currently in India, don't have my iPhone synced with this computer, but rather another computer, and just want to download some apps from my iPhone from Cydia. No Wi-Fi here, but my laptop has wired connection, so I was wondering if I could allow my iPhone to use that internet as well, either wired or turning my laptop into a hotspot.

    if its windows you can setup an ad-hoc connection which will allow the computer to make a "wifi hotspot" that your phone can connect to.

    depending on what windows version its somewhere in networks it should say something like creat new connection. Then set up a ad-hoc, follow its steps, naming it adding a pass if you want etc..
    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    The computer you are creating the ad hoc on has to have a wired internet connection for you to broadcast a wireless ad hoc connection.
