I want to connect my Mac-Book via USB over my iPhone to the internet.

I manage to connect the Mac via WiFi to the iPhone, this works fine.


Then I want to connect via USB. In the Network settings dialog it showed

up but does not work. I accidentally removed the iPhone network connection,

because I thought it will be created the next time I connect the iPhone

to my Mac and switch the hotspot feature over USB on.


But nothing happends. I searched the net but I could not find any

information to get the "iPhone USB" entry in the network setup back.


I restart the Mac several times, reinstall iTunes. Is disable all network connections. Nothing helps.


thanks for any help in advanced





iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1
