I have netshare, and cannot for the life of get connected to the internet.
Iphone 2.0 with netshare.
I can connect to my ad-hoc no problem. But firefox and IE7 will not connect to the internet. Ive tried 3proxy, tinyproxy, and now netshare. I think it has to do with vista. I've also tried port forwarding using putty and winSCP, no luck what so ever.
If anyone has successfully connected to the internet usng your iphone's edge as the connection, PLEASE EXPLAIN HOW!
Thanks in advance.

the problem appears to be with vista.. that's my assumption

Connected in Vista using NetShare to type this message.
Step 0 (To be done the first time only):
Network Connections Control Panel
Right-Click "Wireless Network Connection"
Select "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
Click "Alternate Configuration"
Select "User Configured"
Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center
Click "Connect to a network"
Select ad-hoc network
Connect iPhone to the wireless network you just created
Set the IP to static
Open up Netshare
Click on Tools-> Options...
Click on the advanced tab
Set up the proxy manually
Open a new tab, or window and type "about:config" (Without the quotes)
Do a search for "socks"
This works for me everytime.
Also make sure the phone does not go to sleep, or use insomnia to keep the connection active.

I'm looking forward to trying this.. but I have no idea what you mean when you say network connections control panel. You mean go into the adapter properties and make these changes?
okay.. tried again and again.. thanks for the tutuorial.. it absolutely does not work. I'm running Vista 64.. maybe that's the issue.

guys, I've got to be stupid. I can't find 3proxy or mobileterm on cydia. Do I need to add a source somewhere?
Devloper access in cydia !

no man I'm using netshare on my 3g iPhone & MacBook osx and netshare is crap. Got it to work a few time but the other thousand times no good. To make things worse it somehow messed up my net on phone, had to restore and cos the apps gone and I dl from my phone I can't get it back. Dead app

So here's my question. I just want to use the tethering to download some music, and maybe movies, but not have it connected all the time, maybe a few hours a week or so. I've got other access to internet, however, my apartment complex is stupid and they've got us under a firewall so we can't download music or movies. I'm new to this whole iphone thing, but from what I read, tethering my iphone for music and movies probably isn't a good idea is it?

I would highly advise against using your phone to download any kind of torrnet as it does show extreme upload and download usage which triggers an alert to your cell provider. You can how ever use your phone to tether and surf the internet as this will look normal to your provider and they won't know the differnce. Hope this helps
