    Is this possible on the iPhone. I know you can pay your service provider to tether your 3G connection but is there anyway to tether the Wifi connection for free?

    I want this because I am studying Forensic Computing in University and for our Digital Investigations lecture we have all been given a computer which we installed Linux on because of this we can't connect to the University network as the computer wouldn't pass the security requirements the University network requires before a computer can connect to its network. Plus the University won't let us connect anyway because of the Forensic Tools we are installing and going to be using on the computer.

    I have my iPhone connected to the University network via Wifi so was just wanting to do this if there is a way so I can connect to the internet on the linux computer in the labs.

    My iPhone isn't jailbroken but I will do it if needed to get this to work.

    If you jailbreak you can download mywi and use the iPhone as a wifi router. The app isn't free but you don't pay anything to AT&T.

    You can also patch the commcenter if jailbroken and get wifi.

    I am not really sure if the computers have a wireless card need to check on that.

    Is there anyway to do it through the iPhone USB cable?

    Got a link on how to do that? I already bought MyWi4 for 9.99 but never hurts to have a backup plan.

    I remember reading about patching the comm center for tethering but didn't know you could do it so that it would create a hotspot
