    Our school is quite ridiculous, they have an expansive network with wireless that covers the whole campus, but only restrict it to the students who aren't as mentally capable.

    So, I'm planning to tether my iPhone to my MacBook Pro behind their back. Tips on how to accomplish this?

    I was thinking MyWi but name the WiFi network something silly or generic (10oe9292see) so no one would know anything. Could they trace it back to the host?

    Otherwise, I could use an ad-hoc (where only I'd be able to access it, right?) between my iPhone and my MBP.

    (Yes, I need to jailbreak, carrier charges $8/MB.)

    USB tethering would not be preferred, but I'd do it if I have to.

    MyWi or PDAnet?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Native iPhone tethering thru USB or BT to your mac.
    School will have no clue what you do with your own cellular connection.

    MyWi works incredibly well, use it at school with friends, 2 laptops tethered to it and its fine.

    My College has a wifi network, but you have to give them your laptop for them to 'enable it' and they dont do OS X. And its still filtered, so im basically a walking hot spot for my friends haha
