Tethering is when connected to the cellular network only. If your iPhone is connected to an available wi-fi network, your iPad can be connected to the same wi-fi network. There is no need to tether an iPad with an iPhone in that situation. MacBook Pro 15" Intel Core 2 Duo/2.53GHz/4GB RAM/500GB HD, Mac OS X (10.6.6), iPod w/Video 30GB, iPhone 4 32GB

I may be part of a minority situation, but when I travel with wife and boys, connecting each iPhone, Pad, and Pod separately to WiFi is tedious. When on EDGE or 3G, their devices all connect to my hotspot automatically, since I have already entered the password once. Why not allow me to share the WiFi in the same manner?iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPad 2 3G, iPad 3G, Apple TV 2, Mac OS X (10.6.6), Macbook Air 11.6 1.6, 4GB RAM, Mac mini 2.66, 8GB RAM, Nano 6 LunaTik
