Basically I live in an Army Barrack Block and I use an internet service in my room called Wifinity. I pay for this monthly and it allows me for up to two devices to connect to the internet. The two devices are my Macbook Pro (late 2010) and iPad (3).


If I connect my iPhone to the internet it cancels either my iPad or Mac out and I have to phone them up to change it back round.


What I was hoping to know is:


If I have my Macbook connected to the Wifi, is there anyway I can share that Wifi to my iPhone (either by Wifi, Bluetooth or USB). I have been searching a bit online and haven't had much luck. I have also been playing around with the sharing settings in System Preferences but again, no luck.


The internet service I use is only Wifi, I can't connect it via ethernet or anything else.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Many thanks.

Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
