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?

Ed

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.

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
