Been searching for an hour and it seems nobody is doing what I find to be quite a brilliant idea. OK. Trying to help a friend who is wanting to brilliantly capitalize on the iPad 2 craze. Every store is now inundated with iPad 1 stock of all six models, and of course they are all doing the $100 off. We have used MiFis and personal hotspots, and their one negative is the battery life. There are stories about tethering the iPad and it basically delivering at least 6 hours, which is fantastic. So here's what he wants. We picked up the 16GB 3G iPad. Turn the iPad into a WiFi Hotspot. We don't want to use Bluetooth or USB, that defeats the purpose. We want it to be a hotspot. Ideally supports WPA/WPA2. He'll deal with the crappy WEP but it isn't ideal only because of the strict ASCII requirements around the password. iPad is jailbroken so apps are wide open. Now, I know there are basically four primary apps: MyWi, TetherMe, iTether and PDA Net. I make the assumption that PDA Net is not an option as it's not the iPhone (Though correct me if that's a wrong assumption). MyWi seems to be perfect, but the WEP is a turn-off as is the reports of instability and of course the significantly high price. Claims to have a trial, but damned if I can find where to get it without ponying up payment information. TetherMe seems to be in the right direction come 4.3, but will 4.3 on iPad even have the Mobile Hotspot feature, and will this app support it on the iPad? Not clear from my research which all points to iPhone, not iPad. Also the text says he's offering the program for $1.99, yet the buy now price is $4.99. iTether seems to be a red-headed stepchild in all this. I can't find anything that supports it as a viable option, people are only talking about MyWi and TetherMe. Any ideas?
