    Enable "Personal Hotspot" on your iPad and connect via USB to your computer. Your MacBook should automatically detect/configure the internet connection. That's how it works with my iPhone 5 and my MacBook Pro anyway. Open the "Network" pane of System Preferences for more information. Perhaps manually adding the iPad USB interface manually?

    When you say "Not Connected" do you mean the interface isn't on the list? Or that it is on the list but is listed as disconnected.

    Hmm... Is your iPhone factory unlocked? Try verifying your APN settings
