Thread: PdaNet turns iPhone into Wi-Fi Hotspot

  1. #1
    Default PdaNet turns iPhone into Wi-Fi Hotspot


    Turning a smartphone into a Wi-Fi hotspot is nothing new, unless you have an iPhone. Today, June Fabrics released PdaNet, a jailbreak app that turns any iPhone into a Wi-Fi hotspot regardless of what network happens to be available. Obviously, an Edge connection will be painfully slow, but a decent 3G signal should provide enough bandwidth for most users to surf the web comfortably. According to June Fabric’s website, “PdaNet provides the fastest connection speed possible from your data service and data signal.”

    With PdaNet, users can enjoy the freedom of a personal Wi-Fi hub without the additional cost that most tethering plans bring with them. Some users may not want to create a Wi-Fi hotspot in a crowded coffee shop. If this is the case, users can connect an iPhone to a laptop via USB cable. A desktop client is required for this type of connection, luckily both Mac and Windows versions are available.



    According to PdaNet’s twitter feed, an iPad version is in the works. This is good news for iPad users. iOS 4.2 beta 2 was recently released to developers and the tethering preference that was present in earlier versions had been removed. This feature might have been removed by mistake, but it’s more likely that Apple removed it because of pressure from AT&T. We’ll just have to wait till November to find out if tethering makes it back into iOS 4.2 for iPad.

    This site is a free source of news and information specific to apple and idevices, this is info about an app for the iPhone that not everybody knows about. If you don't like it go else where but they are posting the same thing. If the writers didn't post this stuff all the people ******** about this post would be ******** because it's takes to long for new "relevant" "news worthy" post to happen. Quit ********. If you don't like it then don't read it.

    Thanks for posting this article. I purchased PDANET about a year ago and will be the first to admit it had bugs when trying to connect, however; I didn't want to go and purchase MyWi when I already had an app that allowed me to tether even though it might take a few attempts. I'm glad to see that the developers havent abandoned this app and made updates to it. It works quite beautifully now. Cheers to that. Oh and you can password protect your connection and set the signal strength. I typically just connect via USB keeps me phone charged up and the devices temp down. Nice job.

    MYWI!...

    Way better than PDAnet. I've owned both. Mywi doesn't require a desktop client. Mywi Is way faster, despite PDAnets "claims" that they are. Mywi's Ui is much easier as well....GOD, and guess what.... we've had it for quite some time now.

    Well this app has no consistency and doesn't work half the time. it is useless. MyWi is flawless. I just wish there was a SBSettings toggle for it.

    Used to use this in the edge days of the iPhones, worked as a socks proxy then let's see how it works now.

    This isn't free, they give you a 14 day trial then start blocking all ssl sessions. It is 29 bucks to purchase.

    I've used PDAnet previously prior to purchasing MyWi and yes PDAnet was definitely buggy. MyWi gets my vote as it's ease of use has no parallel.

    I can't see how anyone can say MiWi is buggy. I purchased it months ago and have never had a problem. PDAnet worked sometimes and sometimes not. Unless they have totally revamped it, I don't understand all the press. Either way these programs can be a life savor when you need a internet connection and the iphone is just not practical for what you need to do.
