    Please give more information. Are you trying to tether to your smartphone. You don't need to jailbreak your iPad for that. I currently use my rooted G1 to tether to (Wifi Tether Ad-hoc mode).

    You need to install MyWi on the iPhone, so it will act as a wifi hotspot, through which you will connect your iPad to the internet.

    MyWi is $10 or $20.

    I use mywi 4.0 on my jb 3GS iPhone and its worth every penny. I use my iPhone plan with o2 that includes unlimited data so when paired up with my iPad it's not cost me a bean

    Simple, if u have a windows mobile or android phone, get a wifi tethering app fir it. It was the first thing i tested in the apple store. I even amzed the associate helpin me cuz i wanted to make sure the ipad could detect and connect to my xDA-WiFi tethering app. Which is free by the way. The phone i have is the Rhodium Tilt2 on win mo 6.5.1. It worked n was telling the guy how the 3g ipad would be a waste of $, especially if i can tether thru data connections im already paying for with att. Wifi tether will give u the fastest download/upload speeds. My ipad automatically connects now to my phone when i run the tethering app. I just noticed im getting very good with this ipad onscreen keyboard..lol. Anyways, i believe my tethering app uses ad-hoc connection, meaning computer to computer or device to device. I had bought an archos 5 right b4 the ipad but i couldnt get it to detect the signal i was puttimg out, adhoc. So i returned it and got the ipad a week or so later. Im sooooo glad i did n got this ipad. It only accepts the second type of connection which is infrastructure mode. U can find infrastructure wifi tethering apps on android. It turns ur device into a mobile hotspot allowing up to 5 or so devices to connect to the internet wirelessly thru yours.
