    How-To Tether your iPhone 3G with your PC/Apple Carputer

    Great thread. PdaNet is definitely the way to go (as a couple of posters have suggested). Here's how to get it all working:

    Step 1
    Follow this guide to Jailbreak your phone:

    Step 2
    Launch Cydia and search for "PdaNet" and install it on your iPhone

    Step 3
    Create an ad-hoc network on your PC/Mac using this guide:

    Step 4
    Join your newly created ad-hoc network with your iPhone

    Step 5
    Browse the web with your Carputer

    I used this exact process (with a few Google searching in between) yesterday and it works great. PdaNet now works with Wifi (Apple/PC) and USB (PC) tethering.

    happy browsing!

    Guy's PDAnet provides an option to use USB mode, where you just plug the iphone in via the USB and then connect to it using a client installed on the PC, it works brilliantly and there's no messing around with adhoc networks.
    In my experience with the adhoc way everytime i want to reconnect I was having to recreate the adhoc network, this USB method is much better and it'll charge you iphone at the same time, Bonus!
