    Hello, I want to know if it is possible to use my iphone 4 (ios 4.3.3) as an external WIFI modem (via bluetooth or USB) with my new 15" MBP running Lion 10.7.1
    Why? Because this machines have a faulty WIFI card that makes impossible to play any online game without lag issues, and have no wire connection where I am.

    It is possible, but if you have a faulty WiFi card, why don't you return it to Apple for an exchange if it's still under warranty?

    I don't believe you can. But do you seriously think the Broadcom card in your MBP is going to be worse than what your iPhone has?

    If it's a new MBP, just get it replaced under warranty, or am I missing something?
