Thread: Mywi isn't working
08-07-2009, 04:39 PM #1Mywi isn't working
Mywi isn't working on my iphone- it creates a network that turns up under devices on my laptop. When I try to use the internet when connected to my device, it doesn't work.

I don't think its possible to "tether" that way. If thats what you are trying to do.
Try using bluetooth(if you have access with your pc.) or USB.
If however you are trying to use the internet through your pc via your iphone you need to allow other computers to access the internet.
Maybe be slightly different if you use XP
On the host computer (the computer whose Internet connection you plan to share):
Click to open Network Connections.
Right-click the connection that you want to share, and then click Properties. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Click the Sharing tab, and then select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection check box.
The Sharing tab will not be available if you have only one network connection.Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

I'm running leopard- that changes what I need to do no?

ah, now thats a difference... well basically you need to make sure your internet connection on your mac is shareable with computers and devices.Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

Turned on sharing, and it still doesn't work. The only thing mywi is creating is a device to device network- not wifi like it was supposed to...
Can anyone help me out? Are there any reports of the program working?

Mine does that as well. However, after I connect to the "Computer-to-Computer" network, it does work. Albeit VERY slowly.
Once it started responding, I had crazy latency, and couldn't actually get any web pages to come up so I finally gave up.
