Not long ago the application Netshare was released in the App Store. Not very long after, the same application got removed from the app store due to legal issues with AT&T. Another company that was awaiting approvment of their internet sharing app, PdaNet, is June Fabric. June Fabric’s official statement was:

Our latest response from Apple is that the PdaNet application will be given new “consideration”. But that was more than a week ago and it still has an “In Review” status. There is not much we can do at this point but just to wait.

It appears that June Fabric got tired of waiting cause today i fired up Cydia and found their PdaNet application.
Best of all the application seems to be free!

To get this working is actually rather simple.
A) Create a ad-hoc network with your iPhone and pc

1) Let’s start with your PC config:

1. Click the Start Button and select Control Panel.
2. Select Network and Internet. (If Control Panel is in Classic View, skip this step)
3. Open Network and Sharing Center.
4. Select Set up a connection or network (in the left pane).
5. In the resulting window, select Set up a wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network.
6. Click Next and again on the following page.
7. In the Network name textbox, input iPhone as the name of the network.
8. Select a security type from the dropdown. (If you select WEP, you will need to enter a security key in the unghosted textbox)
9. If you want to use this network more than once, check the Save this network checkbox, if you only need it for a one time fix, leave the checkbox unchecked.
10. Click Next.
11. Click Close.

Let’s now configure the iPhone.

1. Press the main Application button.
2. Select Settings, then select Wi-Fi from the menu, let your iPhone scan for a network and the network iPhone will pop-up.
3. Connect to the network iPhone.

At this point, the hardware for both the PC and iPhone are configured for the ad-hoc connection. Once the settings are saved, your PC and iPhone should establish a wireless connection automatically.

Now it’s time to start the application pdanet.

Enable the app via the wi-fi router button on the bottom.

Wait some seconds and you should immediately see that your desktop computer is connected and you are ready to start surfing or using your EDGE or 3G or GPRS iPhone connection.

Enjoy :)

    Everyone’s forgetting to tell us iPhone’s lack of flash player. it’s impossible to watch a flash animation on iPhone’s browser!

  10. Mike Says:

    Just wanted to add, that mac users trying to tether to an iphone do not need to download am extra program onto their computer. Its all done through OSX’s wireless network, which can be easily accessed on the top toolbar. Also, people who cannot find PDAnet on Cydia, you might have the search filter set to high. To change the search to have no filters:
    Go to the Cydia app then select the manage tab on the bottom. On the top left click Settings, and select Developer (No Filters). Not sure if this will work but its worth a try. At the least, you’ll be able to find more content in cydia

    I have set up the ad hoc on a vista laptop connected via settings but when I click connect via PDAnet app on the iPhone it just says connecting……. Then doesn’t..,

    what gives any ideas please??

  18. Mike Says:

    This app was very easy to use until 3 days ago when it stopped working. It suddenly stopped picking up networks. I set it up on my mac as I always do and then it does not show that it is picking anything up.

    I removed the program from my I phone and then I re-downloaded it but it continues to search without actually picking up a network. Has anyone had this problem? Does anyone have a suggestion?
