    Us Internet via Iphone Teathering Socks Proxy AdHoc?

    I can't find any information about what I'm trying to do...

    Is it possible to connect the Wii to the internet Via the Iphone?

    I have an Iphone 4 (not jail broken) My brother is a developer and he got me a program that will tether my Iphone to my laptop, so I can use my Iphone as a modem on my laptop with out paying the crazy AT&T tethering plan.

    The way I connect to it is:

    I create an AdHoc on the laptop and connect both the laptop and the Iphone to that wireless connection.

    I open the Tether program It gives me an IP address and a port number.

    I then open FireFox on the laptop and create a SOCKS Proxy with that IP and port. I also have to enable the (Socks Proxy? []) ... now I can browse the internet via Firefox

    I've been trying everything I can think of to get the Wii to use this internet connection, but everything I find on line is kind of backwards. In order for it to work, the way I'm setting it up now, I would have to be able to create an AdHoc on my Wii (and that's not possible?)

    So, does anyone have any idea how I can get this to work?

    Thanks!
