I'm just wondering if it's possible to reverse tether over USB without any signal or wifi. I found instructions on how to reverse tether by creating a network bridge between "Apple Mobile Device Ethernet" and "Local Area Connection". The problem is since my phone has no reception where I'm at and theres no wifi in the vicinity either the connection comes up disconnected. Since of the connections is disconnected XP won't allow me to bridge them.
Is there a workaround? I've tried searching for way to trick the iphone into thinking it has reception with no luck. Also I've tried searching for way to fool XP into thinking the "Apple Mobile Device Ethernet" connection is connected with no luck.
FYI the PC I'm using has no WIFI capabilities so reverse tethering over WIFI is not possible.
