Hi,

Great project, really useful.

Want to use my laptop mobile broadband connection to share with my phone

Got it all running with Virtual Router and my iphone can connect to the SSID, however, I am not getting an IP Address or hostname resolved for it. (message shown in Virtual Router) nor can connect to the internet.

Copy/paste of IP Config:

Mobile Broadband adapter Mobile Broadband Connection:

   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 109.33.51.18
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 109.33.51.19

I am not getting a IP resolved over DHCP

Already tried changing my iphone connection to BootP, this only resolves the DNS

Also tried changing my iphone connection to static with:
IP: 109.33.51.20 (Close to default gateway)
Subnetmask: 255.255.255.0
Router: 109.33.51.18 (IP from laptop)
DNS: 109.32.0.239 (this got resolved)

Can't get a internet connection going with my phone though.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!
