That is the question. I could not find answer via the search function.
Just enable internet sharing on your mac
Yes, you can. I used to do this all the time in fact. Just plug your Mac into the wired network, turn on internet sharing, and choose wifi as the sharing interface. Your phone can then connect to your Mac through wifi.
Mac would have to be wired, so that it could use it's wifi as an access point.
Great; thanks for the feedback. We can confirm it works on iOS device with a Mac.
Now the only question is: if it works the same way on a Windows PC as well?
yes it will, at my last work place we used to create ad hoc wifi on windows 7 and connect via iPhone to test internal websites
You can also share internet over bluetooth, but i would imagine that would be slow.
I heard that the experience with ad hoc Wi-Fi on Windows for an iOS device is that it supposed to work but in practice it works with some updates, then it does not work with the next update, and so on. Do you have this experience?
If it doesn't work, the problem is the computer, not the iOS device.
