BTW, this idea would be good for desktop computers, which, mostly do not have wireless cards.
Isn't this already virtually possible? What I do is create a local area Wi-Fi connection, connect my iPhone, share internet from my computer to anyone that connects to the local area connection, and viola!
I don't know how many times I have to say this, NO WIFI! Just a simple(in layman terms) cable connection. I also suggested desktop computers which, mostly, do not have Wifi cards. Anyway, Windows 7 people have trouble connecting with non-Windows 7 computers, let alone iDevices.
Ethernet connection? I see what you're getting at with the iDevices and would love to see it integrated natively instead of the iPhone.
Yeah, finally remembered the term. Ethernet. And yes, if possible, native or coded directly into iOS. A secure connection, instead of just wifi all the time, which can be troublesome.
Speaking of wifi, this has been a consistent oddity in the iPhone ad-hoc wifi sharing. I have a 3GS and a 4S. In the family at least. Maybe it's Apple's power saving. When you leave your sharing on for too long without people connecting, it goes off.
I mean, the toggle is on but you cannot connect unless you re-toggle the thing. Also, it can be on but sometimes, you cannot connect. Help?
I've experienced this quite a few times. There is an option where it allows you to turn of sharing when it is not in use for more than, I believe, 20 minutes? I literally forgot where. This is how it goes when using the jailbreak application, MyWi. I believe it is to prevent battery and data consumption.
As for the connection issues, I have technically no idea. I've only experienced that with Bluetooth, and that is only when I have low battery.
No, there is no toggle, at least in iOS 5. I found a file in the system that is related to this.
Yes, there seems to be a hidden timer in there. I tried adjusting some figures but nothing much happens.
