    I'm on 4.0.1, jailbroken, and my carrier is Fido (in Canada). We don't have to pay extra for tethering, it's included in our data plan. So I plugged my iPhone into my PC and wanted to test it out, went to Settings and enabled tethering, and it worked. A few minutes later though (usually around 2 or 3 minutes after I've enabled it), my PC has no internet connection (it still shows as connected under "Network Connections" (win xp SP3), but when I go to google.com, for example, nothing loads. I have to unplug the USB-sync cable from the iphone, plug it back in, and I get another 2 minutes of browsing before it stops.

    I tried using tetherMe, just to see if it would help at all, but still the same results..

    I'm with Telus and tethering is also very random. I've had better results on bluetooth then USB tough, and I've tried the app you're talking about.
