How to Connect a Laptop to iPhone Internet

Save

Connect a laptop computer to your iPhone using the wireless hotspot functionality built into the device. Available as an added service on both the AT&T and Verizon networks, the wireless hotspot functionality can be easily enabled from the iPhone settings. Once enabled, you can connect to the iPhone as if it were a wireless access point and browse the Web using your 3G network service.

  • Enable wireless hotspot service for your iPhone, if you haven't already, by contacting your wireless provider. The service requires an unlimited data plan and costs an additional $10 per month as of spring 2011.

  • Tap the "Settings" icon on your iPhone home screen.

  • Tap "General" and select "Network."

  • Tap "Personal Hotspot."

  • Slide the on/off switch for "Personal Hotspot" to "On" by swiping across the switch.

  • Set a password for your personal hotspot if you wish to secure the connection.

  • Connect to the wireless hotspot from your laptop using the network manager on your computer.
