How to Make an iPad Hotspot

Over 1 million iPads were sold in the first weekend of their release in April 2010, and sales have remained high. One desirable feature of the iPad is the ability to create a wireless hotspot, using the MyWi application. Although the MyWi 4.0 costs $19.99, if you are upgrading from a previous version it is $9.99. Installing this software enables you to link as many devices as you wish to the Wi-Fi.

Step

Download and install MyWi onto your iPad. After installation, open the program. Set up a security system for your Wi-Fi by pressing "WEP Security" and selecting "On."

Step

Choose a password for your network (which prevents others from being able to access your Wi-Fi).

Step

Set the button that toggles "Wi-Fi Tethering" to the "On" setting. If you wish to conserve battery on your iPad, you can select "Status Bar Icon" as your "In Use Indicator." This uses no battery power, meaning that you can avoid charging your iPad for longer.

Step

Connect other devices to the wireless hotspot by inserting the password you have set up.
