    Hey all,

    Does anyone know if its possible to have reverse twitter on iphone? What I mean is that if I dont have wifi/data plan on iphone, I want internet access for my iphone. I can plug it into my computer with internet access and allow my iphone to get the same connection. :cool:

    Is it even possible or am I just making up stuffs??? Thanks, :rolleyes:

    EDIT: Yea tether, not twitter...

    I have a PC...

    If you have a Mac, and you are connected via ethernet to the internet, you can "share" your internet connection from the System Preferences. I don't know what this has to do with twitter though...

    Reverse twitter? I think you mean reverse tether, Twitter is a social networking website :)

    What you want to do is not called tethering, but creating an ad-hoc Wi-Fi network. The steps are slightly different for XP and Vista. Follow the instructions for setting up your PC. During the process you will assign your new network an SSID. You should then be able to connect to that network just like you would to any Wi-Fi network.

    Reverse Tethering Software

    There's a free software for PC (windows) called Bzeek that you can use for reverse tethering:

    Somehow I am not able to connect to Bzeek. Anything I need to do except running the program?
