SI vous avez un iPhone ou un iPad vous pouvez partager la connection internet au réseau cellulaire (Viking, Proximus, …) avec d’autres appareils (iPad, Laptop, …) en activant la fonction hotspot wifi.
Personal Hotspot is a feature of iOS 4.3 and higher that lets an iPhone share its wireless data connection with other nearby devices via WiFi, Bluetooth, or USB. In that scenario, the iPhone acts like a wireless router for the other devices, transmitting and receiving data for them. An iPhone 4 or higher is required for WiFi connections, though an iPhone 3GS can offer Bluetooth and USB connections.
Using a Personal Hotspot is pretty easy once you’ve got it set up. It requires an iPhone with an active data plan, as well as the tethering option added to that plan.
1. Setup the parameters : Fill out the APN name, both in the normal and the tethering settings (Settings > General > Network > Cellular Data Network > Internet Tethering). The name is: web.be. Don’t fill out the password or username. If you do, the tethering settings won’t be saved!
2. Restart the iPhone.
3. Settings > General > Network > Personal Hotspot > ON
4. Write down the name of the hotspot (ex : MyIphone) and the password.
5. On the device (ex : IPAD, laptop, …) which need the connection : Select the wifi network (ex : MyIphone) and enter the password – Surf …
6. Switch the Personal Hotspot it off when not needed for battery saving reasons ! Now that your Personal Hotspot has been set up, when you want to turn it on the in the future, simply tap the Settings icon and you’ll find a new Personal Hotspot menu item at the top of the screen, just under Airplane Mode and WiFi.
Remark : The name web.be is only valid for Viking. For Proximus see http://www.bluecrowbar.com/blog/2011/03/personalhotspot.html.
