Default Ubuntu Adhoc iPhone tethering - 06-12-2009, 04:41 PM

I saw another thread on this where someone posted a script that never worked completely. Does anyone know if the broadcom chipset that comes with the mini 9 is incapable of connecting as an adhoc network? I'm trying to tether my mini to my iPhone to use the 3G access.

I was able to successfully do this in OS X so it may be a driver issues. i was also able to get a connection established with network manager under ubuntu but on my iPhone it wanted a password for my newly created adhoc network even though I set encryption to none. Any ideas?
