I'm having trouble connecting my iphone to my ubuntu laptop. It works fine on my mac, a windows laptop, and even this same laptop with a windows 7 installiation, but I cant seem to get it to work in 9.04.

Has anyone done this via USB? I dont have bluetooth on this old laptop and I dont want to install an expresscard option either.

Thanks,
Slash

Unfortunately, that only works with bluetooth. I need it to work with USB.

Thanks for the suggestion though! :) I had found that site previously.

Ive been digging around recently trying to find the answer to the same question myself recently.
Unfortunately i have only seen reference to the bluetooth tether :( So im thinking the only option is to put bluetooth in my eeePC heheh
Would be good to hear some info from someone regarding USB tethering under linux

that's the itunnel jailbroken method. it works nicely although that isn't true usb tethering on native OS3.

I know that with windows itunes is needed in order to install the relevant network driver.

I'd be interested in this too, but haven't been able to find out anything about doing it legitimately on os3.0

Tethering is disabled if you upgraded to OS 3.1.

If you didnt then to enable it on your iPhone, go to:

I have OS 3.1 and tethering is still enabled. I'd wager that it's appearing disabled for you because of which carrier you're using.

In windows, when the iPhone is connected to USB, it exposes a PTP (digital camera) device and an "Apple Mobile USB Device". The Apple Mobile Device service talks to the latter and, if tethering is on, makes the iPhone expose a USB Ethernet Adapter. AFAIK, it follows the standards for a USB network adapter, but getting the iPhone to turn it on is another matter...
