Hey guys,

Just got a 16g iphone that is jailbroken with cydia and installous. Do not ask me what that means as i have no idea!

I want to somehow get on the internet on the iphone using the internet on my laptop. I think I have vista on the laptop and the iphone is running the latest firmware.

Any suggestions on how to do this? Any info must be in simple terms as I am useless with computers and iphones.... obviously!

Cheers guys

This is what comes up:

Settings - Wi Fi - Not Connected
WiFi - On
Choose A Network - Other >
Ask to Join Networks - On

Also the laptops Wi Fi is turned on with the little light flashing.
The laptop is running cable internet, if that makes a difference...

Sounds like you're trying to get tethering to work, ie. phone mooching internet directly from laptop, not directly from router. Can't really help on how to do that, just clarifying what it is you're after :p

Hey guys, sorry for the confusing description.

Stressball is correct - I want to access internet directly from laptop. Not through router as that just confuses me even more.

I think i should download the Iphone instructions and read it!!

Cheers for the advice guys, will have a go at some of the suggestions after work
