was just wondering if this is possible since tethering is possible for iphone to pc/mac.
Situation: I travel to many countries on business that do not have wifi access. I do not want to chalk up expensive data usage while travelling. However, I am able to get access to LAN connections in hotel rooms which charge on a daily unlimited rate is is what I would pay for. What I would like to do is to connect my iphone up to the computer via bluetooth or something so that I could also surf the internet on my iphone probably using my PC/mac as a "router.
Is there a way to do it or I would have to download an app or something?
I am currently on 3.0.1 JB and have no intention of upgrading to 3.1.2 yet until it is more stable and easily JB.

I don't know if you can do what you want "reverse tether," but if it is in the threads, you might want to try searching. I haven't seen it.
Ah, here it is:
Google with site:macrumors.com as a parameter.

Installed Bzeek but somehow it did not work. Set up my wireless and sort of stupidly messed up my LAN settings. (As you can see, I am rather hopeless with IT hence and asking for an idiot proof solution)
I screwed up my internet settings while trying to configure my wireless according to the site. Am clueless with IT.....

Wait, I'm not sure if I follow. If I understand you right, you want to broadcast wifi from your computer (with an ethernet connection) so you can surf on your phone?
Windows has to have a way to do this, I'd think. On the Mac it's easy. Just click the airport menu item and 'Create Network.' Presto!

You can turn most any PC/mac into a WiFi connection, just need to find the instructions
But websurfing on an iPhone when the larger laptop screen is that close... well, I suppose you have your reasons.
