    June Fabrics Technology has released their popular application for Window Mobile phones and Palm OS phones, PdaNet, for jailbroken iPhone. PdaNet turns your iPhone into a Wi-Fi router for your MAC or PC, and allows your laptop to surf the internet wirelessly using your iPhone's 3G/Edge data connection. PdaNet is...

      I just started using this and it's awesome! I would compare the 3g tether connection to that of DSL speed. Video can be somewhat slow to stream but surfing is just great!

      This sounds amazing i wish they released this earlier because i needed internet but couldn't find a wifi connection for my laptop. Cant wait to install on my iPhone 3g xD. Does anyone know if its compatible for 2.1?

      AMAZING APP! i've tried it just now with amazing results! everything works! i've made a crystal clear phone call on skype, chatted a bit with my buddy on iChat, browsed on both Firefox and Safari! tested the speed! didnt know that my 3g connection was capable of 1896kbps thats around 1.7mbps which is pretty dandy! the app is amazing, setup was as simple as setting up a normal network, just create an ad-hoc on ur mac/windows! and "boom" as mr Job says, your online checking iPhoneHacks.com. Amazing find guys

      Thanks for the heads up

      PEACE

      P.S I've tried it on my 2.1 iphone ;) couldnt get my iPod connected through the computer tho!,, i could see it connected on the app, but i couldnt get online.

      Great app - got it working in no time. On my main machine, the stuff I had to do to get NetShare working I had to undo for PdaNet to work (had to unset the Socks proxy). Just let both devices do DHCP, join the ad-hoc network and you're up and away with Web, mail, SSH - you name it.

      Can anyone confirm that this works on 2.1? I tried it on mine and can't get it to work to save my life. I am very smart with the whole iPhone thing, so I know its not me. My IP addresses, just aren't what they are supposed to be. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem. Thanks!

      @Justin
      If you were that smart, you would tell us what the problems are that you are experiencing. Is the program not loading, is it not recognizing your 3g connection, is it not recognizing your wifi connection? What is the deal. Provide some clear details and we can try to help, cause like you, we are also very smart with the whole "iphone thing!"

      I had issues like @justin and i had to give my vista Wireless adapter an "alternate" ip address in the 192.168.x.x address class and then I was ok. I also had to give the IP of the iPhone as the gateway address since I was hardcoding my IP address. The end result was both laoptop and Iphone on the same network and the iphone address being the gateway). Since my Wireless NIC can have the primary DHCP setting and a secondary alternate IP that is hardcoded, this works great for me. I do it all once and then I am ok each subsequent time.

      Sorry guys. I appoligize for being so vague. I create a wireless network on my mac, and then join it on my phone. However, the phone still shows the 3G icon. I start pdanet and it says "PDAnet is all setup and ready to go, just go into settings and join your adhoc network." It gives me that error everytime. I'm assuming its something wrong with my phone, since everyone else is getting it to work. You think it has something to do with me using iphonemodem, or the previous method with mobile terminal and 3proxy? Another question I have is, does it show the wifi icon or 3G icon on your phone when you use PDAnet? Thanks guys!!

      PdaNet has been one of the most popular software for Windows Mobile phones and Palm OS phones. It is now ported to the iPhone! The latest version turns your iPhone into a true WiFi router for your computer (MAC or PC), and allows your laptop to go online wirelessly through the 3G network on the iPhone.While there has been quite a few other third party software (iPhoneModem, NetShare etc. and also the built-in OpenSSH) that tether your iPhone through a junky SOCKS proxy solution. PdaNet, on the other hand, is miles ahead! This version is called "PdaNet WiFi Router", it literally is. All you need to do is simply to create an ad-hoc WiFi network on the computer and connect your iPhone to it (instructions). Your computer then goes online automatically. There is no need to specify IP (or any other) settings on either end.

      Justin -

      The same thing is happening to me, and I feel like I have tried every solution, but nothing is working. I have went the static route as km suggested, I have tried to only use DHCP on the phone / then only on the computer....Nothing is working. I keep getting stuck at the same screen as you. I have found out though, that it is a setting inside the computer, and not on the phone. On two laptops I have been experiencing the problem, but when I hook up to my desktop it works as others have reported. I have copied my ipconfig /all from the desktop and applied all the setting statically to my laptop...and nothing. There must be some service / setting that we have different on our computers. Please keep me posted on any progress, and I will do the same

      This works great... It only took me 2 minutes ;-)

      Thanks peter for the info. I'll keep you posted if I figure it out. I know my macbook works perfectly, because I use basically the same method of creating a network for iphonemodem. So I know it works.

      I tried 3Proxy before and couldn't really keep the connection long enough for a page to load; PDANet is way better but i still get disconnect every 5 minutes or so... don't know what the deal is but for those concerns with with 2.1 firmware...my is 2.1 and maybe that is why.

      Works just great! For those of us who already pay for unlimited data downloads (Sweden), not being able to use the iPhone as a modem has been a real problem. Tethering is okay here, but Apple does not allow it. This is the solution.

      works on 2.1 perfectly. Not sure how o2 will feel about it. Never mind.

      I just tried PdaNET to tether my EeePC to my first generation iPhone using the E network. Running Firefox on the EeePC, it runs much faster than Safari on the iPhone. It only took a few minutes to set up. Thunderbird also worked well for getting my email using PdaNET. Oh, and PdaNET will tell you what you are doing wrong if the error is on the iPhone. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

      At last! What a relief. This works perfectly with my Vista laptop and internet surfing and email work fine. I wish I'd had this when I was in Skye last week! Thanks for an excellent app.

      Brilliant! Now I can dump my VMC card and stop paying Vodafone for maintaining 2 mobile connections. Configuration is simple enough for a non tech person like me to understand. If only NZ had similar data plans to the US... Thanks for this great app.

      I'm poor just like half of america now. can't afford home internet:( So i use this with the greatest of ease and love it! Although i would like to see a if they can fix the battery issue that i'm having while pluged in to the wall socket to charge. The battery keeps running on the iphone which means eventually i have to disconnect and charge thee iphone. That my friends sucks major jewels. But beside that this is perfect for us poor technically advanced people:)

      Can someone explain in PDANet for iPhone, when the app is connected there is a info tab that reads "Connections" and a amount of connections.

      What does that connections means?

      Im using this on my EEEPC, but I keep disconnecting every few minutes. My iPhone is using 2.1 firmware; Is that the problem? Thanks in advance for the help.

      How much data transfer would make ATT suspicious? It works great but I don't want to get spanked with a big bill from ATT.
