How to use internet from PC on the iphone


i tried to connect my iphone to my laptop that is connected to internet via LAN (windows xp), so i could use the internet also on the iphone ..

i tried using an ad-hoc network by making my laptop a wifi hotspot

it seems like my iphone is connected to the PC, but there is no internet.

i turned off the firewall on my laptop and it worked (well, not everything: all the Apps that require internet (facebook, skype..) worked except for Safari!
but that's not the main problem..

the bigger problem is that i dont want to leave my firewall turned off!
how can I add exceptions to windows firewall so it can allow my iphone to connect 100% ?? ( how can i know the number or the name of the port that i need to add to the exceptions?)

thanks alot!!!

Re: How to use internet from PC on the iphone

The easiest way to do this is by using a wifi from router itself. Second thing I have one solution for setting up a wifi ad hoc network so that you can use it on the iphone. For that go in Start > connect to. Then click on Setup a Connection or Network. Now choose Wireless Ad-hoc Connection. One you are done with the same then add the network name apple net and set no authentication for Sharing Security type. Check back one more time.
