Why can’t I access the internet although my iPhone is connected to my Intel WiFi?

Dr Johnny Siu Chong October 11, 2011

My HP Intel WiFi says my iPhone4 is connected and my iPhone says it’s connected to the HP WiFi network, but still I cannot access the internet. How do I solve this? Is the problem with the HP settings or the iPhone settings?

    Your "HP Intel Wifi"? What is that? It sounds like a laptop - so probably you've created a local wifi network between your HP laptop and your iphone. Which is great! But, its not going to give you internet access, unless you share you wired laptop internet connection with your wifi connection. There are wizards to do this in Windows, just search the help.

    Hello, does it tell you that you have internet access?  or only that you have local access?
