    Make HTC Evo a wifi hotspot. Connect iPad to that wifi hotspot. Done.

    Not an option, I like to use the MacBook Pro as router so my iPad can connect, the MacBook Pro its showing on my iPad but I get the Massages "Cannot Open Page"
    Safari cannot open this page because is not connected to the internet.

    First, you need to make sure you actually subscribe to HotSpot service. Or your phone is rooted.

    Then if your phone is rooted, use another app, like WiFI Tether. Free in the market.

    If that does not work, go to the settings, select proper phone type, check Routing Fix.

    I use my Evo 3D constantly as a hotspot. I would recommend going the Root / WiFi Tether option. It's free, completely unlimited 4G internet.

    OK, I will describe in detail: I use HTC EVO, to connect to the MacBook, via PdaNet thru the USB cable, and I can get to the internet no problem (I don't have to root my phone) do you fallow so far?

    Now I like to use my macbook as a router to connect the iPad, when the laptop is connected to the phone and getting internet?

    is it possible?

    PS. I had 'HotSpot' I try avoid paid for before I try this other avenue, and if I had 'Hotspot' don't need to use the Macbook as a router.

    Ahh I get it. Kind of a long way around. Would be much easier simply to root and use WiFi Tether to give access to both, your MacBook and your iPad. Free and much more convenient.

    But as for your situation, a quick google-fu resulted in this: http://www.tuaw.com/2007/03/26/how-to-using-your-mac-as-a-nat-router/

    I do not use Macs at all, so it may be outdated info, but it looks legit.


    Quick edit to reply to your "PS. I had 'HotSpot' I try avoid paid for before I try this other avenue, and if I had 'Hotspot' don't need to use the Macbook as a router." comment. Root the phone, and it's free. Rooting is free as well.
