    Hello all, I am living in a campus dorm where they don't allow wireless router and I am constantly using my iPhone for email and sometimes youtube. Using EDGE is ok, but it is slow at times, and apparently there is no 3G service indoors. Is it possible to create a Ad Hoc network from my MacBook to give it access wirelessly?

    Do you mean you wish to share your computer's internet conection with the iPhone?

    Or do you mean you wish to use the iPhone as a WiFi router for your computer to access the internet?

    You can do both.
