    hi guys,

    i know thar there are many threads about sharing an iphone mobile internet to an ipad, but this is not what i need.

    I want to want to use my ipads internet on my mac e.g. to send some emails with files, etc.

    Is there a way to do this via usb, bt or wifi without jailbreaking my ipad?

    Well, why not just create a network, copy the files over, or email directly, using airsharing, or similar, and then email them using the iPad.

    yes, thats one possibility. but as im working on my mac already e.g. making slides or adapt things it just anoying to always send them to ipad first then write the email on ipad and finaly send it. especially if you need to send different versions to different people, etc...

    do you have any idea hiw to solve it? :confused:

    If there's a solution, it's going to require jailbreaking. iPad is not set up to share its internet connection.

    Interesting that they had tethering included already and removed it again! That sucks!

    Looks like I really need to jailbreak it to get this working... not sure if its worth it...

    Jailbreaking doesn't harm the iPad. And if you don't like it, you can restore it.

    It was in beta 3, I believe, but who knows until it's finally released.
