    Tethering TO an iPad 3G

    Hi,

    I am about to order a 3G iPad, which should cover the majority of the tasks I need to do away from my desk (including connecting to pcs via Wise/Log Me In).

    I will still need my windows laptop and a 3G connection from time to time; I was wondering if it is possible to connect the laptop to the iPad and use the iPads 3G connection (rather than running 2 data contracts, one for the iPad, one for the 3G data card in the laptop - I did think about swapping the sims over but a) this is a pain b) they are different sizes).

    I am aware that most tethering in relation to the iPad is going the other way (i.e. using a iPhone to provide the 3G connection to the iPad)

    Any ideas?

    Sure. You can jailbreak the iPad using the Spirit app and install myWi or whatever to turn it into a wifi data connection. Nothing to it.

    Don't you have a smart phone already that you can tether to?

    Thanks for the suggestions, so the only way is via a JailBreak?

    Yes I have an iPhone with a data plan, but I plan to put the pad on a different network to increase chances of a 3G signal when out and about.

    Many thanks
