Thread: PDANet is on Cydia...working?

  1. #1
    Default PDANet is on Cydia...working?
    Hey PDANet is available on Cydia this morning. I have installed it but i haven't gotten it to work yet. I keep getting an error that says

    "Carrier data network can not be detected on your iPHone. Please make sure your iPHone can go online through the cellphone's data network then launch PDANet again."

    Does anyone know if you need to be on 3G in order to make this work or if you can do it on Edge? Anyone else having any issues?

    It is another tethering app so you can use your phones data plan on your laptop. You have to create an Ad-Hoc network with your phone and share it's data connection.

    Seems to work

    Create adhoc on PC (vista for me)
    Connect to that new network
    Go into PDANET turn on and read instructions
    Then go to WIFI, connect to ADHOC from PC
    I then did a quick safari site on teh phone to make sure I was still on NET
    Went into PDANET and it said ON and showed my network stats
    Went to IE and OUTLOOK and YES Internet works

    Anyhow, not sure if that is the right way to do it but it seemed to work for me so far

    Anyone have more instructions they want to share?

    Thanks

    Default Works Flawlessly on my Macbook
    I simply created and adhoc network, attached my phone to it, ran PDANet, and started surfing.
    The best part is that it is not limited to a socks proxy port, meaning all of my other applications that use random ports like remote desktop etc ALL WORK!!!
    This is the 1st tethering app for the iPhone that I've seen that does this!

    Nice, got it working also thanks to the guide. I Know the use of tethering but is this something that should is ok to use since i have an unlimited plan? do i have to worry about atnt at all? I tend to be at my brother & laws house on the weekend and unfortunatly they have no wireless router in there home so this would be great for me when i'm over there so i can use my laptop.

    You don't want to use it a lot because if they, ATT, see a ton of data usage they can cut you from the unlimited plan. Read the terms of service with them. Technically they could also see the IP address and see that you are not browsing through your iPhone but if you don't give them reason, ie. tethering all the time, they won't notice.

    it seems to freeze the reboot the phone if used to long. Guess when the battery gets to low it acts funny well for me anyways, the damn charger is not fast enough to charge when using 3g.

    Do you mean that Mail works with PDAnet? Because it doesn't with iPhoneModem, at least not with its regular settings. This would be a major advantage for PDAnet. Can you confirm?
    Thanks

    I am puzzled by the fact that you have to reboot after you open PDAnet. Is that necessary? Why?

    Because when you first open PDA Net it tells you to.
