    Not yet. And there's always an easier way in the future.

    I followed your adhoc instructions perfectly on my XP laptop and my iPhone does not see the adhoc network. What am I doing wrong?

    Ok... I officially love you now.

    Ok..maybe I love tinyproxy more...but you introduced us.

    hmmm... Is your computer currently connected to any other wireless networks?

    Windows will automatically connect to "preferred" wi-fi networks before the ad hoc network. You might try changing your auto connect settings the Wireless Network Properties popup.

    When your wireless network is enabled: Start >> Control Pannel >> Network Connections >> "Wireless Network Connection" >> (Right CLick Menu) Properties >> (Tab) Wireless Networks:

    You will want to switch all "(Automatic)" networks in range to "Manual" by:

    Select a network from the "Preferred Networks:" list, Click "[Properties]" >> in the popup, click "(Tab) Connection", uncheck "[x] Connect when this network is in range".


    If that's not the problem, I'm not sure what to tell you without more info. It could also be that your wireless card doesn't support ad hoc networking.


    And thanks for the warm reception to the forum, everyone. Happy to help

    Tether Kit, or Tiny Proxy?

    Tiny Proxy, you can uninstall through the Installer app. Just launch Installer, choose Uninstall, and poke what you want gone.

    Will you have to change the setting on your phone every time you hook up to the computer? and will you have to change any setting back to normal when not using the tether?

    Maybe some of these programmers on here can stop working on retarded bobble head programs, and develop a good GUI for an iPhone to XP tether.

    I bring around with me a spare USB connector cable and leave it plugged into the computer. Otherwise yeah, battery runs down pretty quick.
