    Hi,
    I was told that I could use my iPad as a wireless modem for my laptop (Asus) but I can't get the two to connect. Any suggestions?
    Sometimes I want to connect to internet with my laptop but don't want to pay for the extra connection.
    From Walden

    Hi, Walden! Welcome to iPF!

    This will only be possible if your iPad is Wi-Fi + cellular. You'll find "Personal Hotspot" in your Settings list. Tap it and turn it on. Then you'll find what to do:

    Hope that helps.

    Same with iPhones depending on your carrier Some carriers disable that feature,
