Tethering iPad to laptop

I am going to visit my Mom this summer and want to make sure that I have Internet access while I am gone. As she doesn't have Internet as her house I was hoping that I could use my iPad data plan to tether with my laptop.

Anyone know if this is possible?

Re: Tethering iPad to laptop

By default the iPad does not have the ability to tether. There may be an application on the app store to do so but its definitely not something that is a supported feature out of the box.

Thanks for the quick response. I was hoping that the iPad would have the ability since the iPhone does and they use the same iOS.

I know that this is an old topic, but I just received an email that this was accepted as the solution and provide an updated solution, the iPad, like the iPhone can be configured as a Personal Hotspot.


Settings > Personal Hotspot > enable.  Setup a password and you are good to go.  Be sure to have either wifi or bluetooth enabled on the iPad as one of these connection methods will be used.
