    A stock iPad 2 cannot be used as a wifi hotspot.

    Are these screenshots from an iPad 2, because that's what the OP has?

    As scifan57 so aptly pointed out - an iPad2 cannot serve as a WiFi hotspot; only the iPad3 can do so as a stock device. You can, however, make any iPad a WiFi hotspot if you jail break it and install a tweak from Cydia (the jail breaker's "app store").

    Tunde71: Please don't post about an issue in more than one thread. Not only does it fragment the conversation and make it difficult to follow - it's against our rules.

    I have deleted your other two threads. Please keep any discussion about this issue to this thread only. Thanks for your understanding.
