It was supposed to have internet connection when I turn on “Personal Hotspot” on my iPhone and connect it via usb to itself.
I tried it on stable version, used different options but it couldn’t detect and I decided that it is due to the old kernel.
Then I tried with beta version with newest kernel, same problem.
Normally, Ubuntu and Ubuntu based systems can detect it automatically at the moment when I plug the iPhone in.
My PC has no WiFi card, so I want to connect through USB.
I hope that there is a simple solution.
I would love to be able to answer your question but frankly haven't used a USB dongle in decades... and before that it was PCMIA or a serial connection.
Maybe @Thanatermesis has some pointers.
I changed the title a bit to reflect the connection.
Isn't it just (always) easier to stick in a small USB-wifi card?
- I don't use Networkmanager either but doesn't that come up with a tethering option?
I know "connman" does allow tethering with "connmanctl", from the manpage:
Tethering a wireless connection (ssid "SSID", passphrase "password"):
$ connmanctl tether wifi on SSID password
and in all cases make sure you have "ipheth-utils" installed, it isn't installed by default on Elive contrary to Ubuntu.
I'm not sure if this is Elive relative, in the sens that I regularly use usb web connection with a phone (surely not apple one, but...), e.g. on the eeepc 1001px with Elive 3.8.13 & E24: as soon as I set "by usb" on the phone's web share settings, Elive connects thru it...
I do want to try this, thank you
Ok, I will try with another phone, Android system. Thank you!
That can be done simply by typing in a terminal:
It will require an internet connection, so I hope that that isn't a catch22 for you.
If it is .... download the .deb file (it doesn't have extra dependencies) from here:
Copy it to USB flashdisk and install the package by double clicking on it within the desired machine.
I had installed ipheth-utils, but system couldn’t recognize phone’s internet, then I came across askubuntu forum 12.04 - How do I set up the iPhone USB Ethernet Driver? - Ask Ubuntu
When I tried the last answer in the forum, ie had installed usbmuxd, the connection was established...
Surely it works without any problems with Android system!
That would be this answer, just for future reference.
This is for sure an important thing for elive to have , but seems like the beta versions supports USB internet since some while (without using ipheth-utils package, which in fact seems to conflict with network-manager), but I cannot test it here
Anybody can confirm that USB internet works (and its easy to setup) from the beta versions?
I'll try later, since I know someone with an iPhone 11 and cell data
that supports a hot spot
