    Smile sharing my mac wifi with Iphone
    hey all, hope this is a question that has a good answer
    At home I can not get a wifi on my Iphone, although
    my MacBook is on wifi all the time,
    can I "tether" to the Iphone and use the MacBook wifi
    on the Iphone.
    I know it is suppose to work the other way around
    Iphone to laptop, but I want to go from laptop to Iphone

    There shouldn't be any particular reason why you can't get wi-fi on your iPhone if your MacBook can, unless you are locked out. Is wi-fi turned off in the settings for some reason? Does your iPhone not see your wi-fi signal? Is the option to "Ask to Join Networks" enabled?

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
