Creating a network using iPhone and wifi tethering and ATV2
I have tried a few searches but haven't found any success so far. I am going on vacation later this year and I wouldn't mind taking some entertainment to keep the little ones happy.
I currently have an Apple TV2 which streams multiple kids movies/TV shows to our TV either from the iPhone, iPad or iTunes.
At the beach house we are going to there is no WiiFi network.
What I would like to do is tether the ATV2 to my iPhone and then plug the ATV2 into a TV in the beach house.
Is this possible? I don't want to use any 3G just essentially create a mini wifi network in the beach house to get stuff from multiple different devices onto the TV screen.

Its possible, but you have to have your iPhone tether to the WiFi. If you don't want this, you can use your laptop to make a network or pick up a cheap wireless router or an Airport Express.

I would just get a Airport Express or another cheap router. Much easier to set up and use.

Now I just power it up before we leave, load up whatever content is needed and pack it up for the trip. Really the one true advantage the first gen model has over the newer unit.
