This app is so cool. My friend at work is updating his iPhone via my iPhones WiFi.

So did anyone get MyWi to work with a PSP or DS?

For example, to do this on a laptop with internal WiFI, you'd need another WiFi adapter (USB or card) in order to share one to the other. Or you could use the wired LAN connection on the laptop for 'Net access and then share it via the internal WiFi.
Since the iPhone doesn't have wired LAN, the only option would be WiFi-to-Bluetooth, and that wouldn't help you either (based on your description of what you want to do).

I'll tell you what does work: using a laptop with the iPhone 3G and MyWi tethering at Starbucks. I am doing it right now. OK, it's USB tethering, but I'm still bumping off the Starbucks/AT&T wifi that comes free with iPhone where it usually costs $$ to do so with a laptop.

mine still disconnects after a min or so, even with the update. Still shows connection on networks but no internet activity.

Can someone clear this up? From your post it basically says you are using your Iphones wifi to share with your laptop via usb. From my understanding this CAN NOT happen from everything I read. Are you sure you are using your wifi that is hooked up to the ATT hot spot and not using the 3g connection?
So what everything I have read MyWi can not share the active wifi connection with anything since it works as a wifi hot spot itself. Does that change when it is hooked up via usb or is that still the case? Please someone clarify all of this for me.

But I am very sure USB-tethering works if you want to get your internet connection from WIFI. Most people will say that defeats the purpose since laptops nowadays all have WIFI built in, but they don't take into account most hotspots are pay-to-use which the iPhone gets around that.

just installed it on mine and it crashes after about a minute
My friend installed his but uses the USB cable to connect via the labtop and his seems fine?
just tried mine on the cable and it works fine, must be a wifi problem with the app which is a shame

I had a rouge install of PDANet that wouldn't go away after uninstalling it (the icon wouldn't go away) and interestingly enough, MyWi seems to have deleted the icon for PDANet AND replaced it when I installed it today. Hmmmm... I bet there's something related here but I don't know enough yet about how to diagnose it.

The real turnoff about this app is that it DOES NOT work with ANY game system. MyWi was advertised as an app that allows you to share your 3G/EDGE connection wirelessly with ANY WiFi enabled device, and it has not been doing that for me. It doesn't work with Wii, DS,PSP, or PS3!! This was my main reason for getting it, but apparently it doesn't do its job. So if any gamers want this app to get online on the go, then just forget it. This app isn't worth ten dollars to me if it can't even do what it was advertised to do, and simply get a game system online.

Worked like a charm. Thank you!!
I have to figure out how to enable WEP security.

Been using it for awhile now. Works great!
