I am having the same issue.  It works all day on my home AP, but when I attempt to tether to my iPhone it doesn’t work.  Not sure what the deal is.


There are instructions out there for getting the pieces put together to tether to your phone via USB, but I’d prefer to get the wireless option working.  Let me know if you make any progress.

Hello group,

          I was able to get the wifi for my node (HP thin Client E5740E) to work great....my question is to get the DIAL software to recognize my iphone as the wifi link, not my local router. Do I need to change anything other than the /etc/network/interfaces file to reflect the iphone? (it took 3 times to get it, the WIFI link to my local router to work, as I crashed the software 2 times, requiring reinstalls in my fumbling)

Here is the full content of the /etc/network/interfaces file

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
    wpa-ssid xxxxxxxxxxx
    wpa-psk  xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I'm asking because when I change the wpa-ssid to iPhone and the wpa-psk to my iPhone password it doesn't link to the iphone ....any ideas? 


  Thanks Jim
