    Thanks in advance to who ever helps me out on this one.

    I got a crapy land lord who only wants to allow me ONE wifi MAC address (my macbook laptop)

    But i own two iphones, and my 3G signal is pretty weak in the hood where I live.

    Is there a way i can have my macbook be as a router for my iPhones?

    have my macbook share internet over bluetooth (so i get internet connectivity via bluetooth on my iphone)
    have my macbook create a wifi hotspot ( so i connect to the internet via some wifi SSID that i created on my macbook )

    As far as I know, the MacBooks won't act as a WiFi repeater. If you want it to broadcast wifi signal, you have to have a wired connection to the computer.
