    Sharing internet connection from tethered computer-to-computer network?
    I need to figure out is how to share internet from a computer-to-computer network.

    Because when i try sharing my connection from airport to ethernet it says my network settings will be affected and i get booted from the tethered computer-to-computer connection.

    Buy a router and connect the internet to the router, set up the router to be the DHCP (issues computer addresses) and connect to the router by air or wire. Note you have to be hard wired to do the admin on the router.

    Are you saying you are using an iPhone to connect a computer to the internet? Tell me how - very cool idea. If true (why is another good question) then what kind of output cords connect?

    you need to have your iphone jailbroken.

    you download PDAnet from Cydia store (free for now)

    No cables. all you do is create an ad-hoc network on your laptop, find it on your iphones wifi and connect to it, and start the program. no cables, no hassle works great.

    well except if your trying to router it further like me. im having troubles with DNS servers

    oh and benifits? anywhere you have cellphone reception you have internet. Even in your car, i was in the passanger seat going 130km/hr down the hwy with full high speed... that to me is awsome.
