Share 3G Internet USB on WinXPP via WiFi to iPhone

Hello people, ZizziBaddi staff is travelling and we have been given some USB 3g Internet Keys for our Asus Eee PC 1000H so since we are always geeking around we challenged ourselves to share our 3G Internet connection via USB Key by Momo Design to our iPhones and here goes the tutorial.

Requirements:

– Computer with Windows XP SP2, we have used the Asus EEE PC 1000H

– USB 3G Internet Key, we have used the 3 Momo Design 7,2Megabit

– 3G Internet Account attached to our SIM Card, much better a flat rate with no limited traffic

Step by Step

1- Connect the USB, get it recognized and install its drivers and application. We won’t cover here how to set it up but do it before following this tutorial

2- Start/Settings/Network Connection. Among the Dial Up connections you will find the profile used by the USB Key, right click on it, choose properties and then the Advanced label:

On Windows Firewall – Click on Setting, then set it OFF to disable it

3- On the same window, below the Dial Ups you will see LAN or High Speed Internet, locate your WLAN, right click on it, select properties and on “This connection uses the following items” locate the last one “Internet Protocol (TPC/IP), select it and click properties.

4- Click on “Use the following IP Address” and configure it as follows:

IP Address 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway 192.168.1.1
Use the followding DNS Server
Preferred DNS Server 192.168.1.1

4- Click now on Wireless Networks and on Preferred Networks click on Add and configure it as follows:

Network Name SSSID zizzibaddi3g
Tick the box to Enable even if this network is not broadcasting
On Wireless Network Key
Network Authentication Open
Data Encryption Disable (You can enable it later)
Tick to enable This is a Computer-to-Computer (Ad Hoc) network. Wireless Access points are not used

5- On iPhone (or any other WiFi device) tap Settings then Wi-Fi and enable it

6- On Computer, right click on WLAN icon on the tray area, next to the clock and click on View Available Wireless Networks. The new zizzibaddi3g will be listed, select it and click Connect.

7- On iPhone the new WLAN will be listed as zizzibaddi3g, tap it to connect to it, then tap the > arrow to configure it as follows:

IP Address Static
IP Address 192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask 255.255 seroquel pill.255.0
Router 192.168.1.1

    Hello viJay. Difficult to say what the problem could be. There are things you should do to troubleshoot. For example: Are you using Windows7? With Windows7 it does not work properly and it requires you to set the WiFi Card DHCP as automatic and it gets 192.168.2.1 as IP address.

    If you are on Vista or Win7, you should try ConnectiFy which usually works but it is not very stable.

    If you are on XPP, you should follow this tutorial, then when you connect with your iPod Touch, you have to manually configure the IP address.

    The PC WiFi Card will be 192.168.1.1 as IP, 255.255.255.0 as subnet, 192.168.1.1 as Gateway and DNS

    Then set the iPod as 192.168.1.2 as IP and the rest is exactly as the PC WiFi Card.

    Then open the dos prompt and ping the iPod Touch: ping 192.168.1.2

    When it replies, you should have network connectivity from iPod Touch to your PC, therefore if the PC is routing properly, you should have Internet Access on your iPod.

    Cheers

    I dont recommend you to use third party software or hardware *just* to share USB wireless 3G modem internet to your WiFi, because you can actually do it by utilizing the ICS feature in your WIndows, i’ve proven this and successfully connect my huawei 3g USB wireless modem to my WiFi access point where i can share the internet all over my house.

    Well, once you have an Ad-Hoc WiFi network up and running you should be able to connect to it with any wifi enabled device but I have never tried myself with the Nintendo DS
