Must have. Downloading 10.6.3 for the laptop now so once that's sorted I'll give it a crack and post back here.

Well it worked, both with Bluetooth and USB. I have no idea what went wrong the first time I tried it, mainly because it's so straight forward to set it up and quite intuitive. I'm sure I was using the same settings as well!

Nevermind it's working now! Now I can use my iPhone to connect to my laptop to allow my (future) iPad to connect to the web when I'm away from home!!

Cheers Aaron, thanks for the help!

Oh fantastic!

Yeah, well that would mean I could happily just get a Wifi only ipad, spare the extra money, and still have mobile internet  *thumbs up*

(: no problem!

I have an issue with creting an ad-hoc network on my MacBook, I get an error message saying that a computer-to-computer network could not be created.

This happens if use channels 1-13 but if I use channels 36-48 it works. However the issue with this is the iPhone and iPod touch (and very likely the iPad) are unable to use channels 36-48 to connect and therefore unable share the connection.

I created a network using a T-Stick and while I can "share my internet connection" I still need the other devices to be able to connect to it, and unless they work on channels 36-48 then it won't work.

Note: My thoughts and comments are my own and not of anyone else including my employer
