When I purchased new iPhone 4 its Personal Hotspot was working well, I used mostly USB cable to connect to the internet from my computer and occasionally needed to use the WiFi. But after I upgraded to iOS 5.0.1, I was unable to connect through Wi-Fi because whenever I tried to discover my iPhone it was not discover-able on my computer (same problem can happen if you upgrade to iOS 5.1 ). When asked from many of my friends they were also having the same problem, also on my blog some people reported the same even the WiFi signals were dropped in some cases.
Note: Recall your WiFi security key if you are connected to any external Wi-Fi connection, because after resetting the network settings you will not be able to connect to external Wi-Fi without network key if it is secure otherwise no problem.
Go to Settings —-> General —-> Scroll down to the end and tap Reset –> Reset Network Settings
Your iphone will restart automatically and below are the steps on How To Turn On the Personal Hotspot:
Go to Settings —> Personal Hotspot —> Select On (Note down the Wi-Fi Password)
Now you can go to your computer and turn on Wi-Fi you will definitely see the name of your iPhone select and click connect and provide the Wi-Fi Password given in your hotspot settings.
If you want to use internet through USB cable you must install iTunes so that your computer can recognize the iPhone. After turning the Hotspot on just connect USB and your computer will connect to internet automatically.

From his tweet it seems that he has just bought the new iPad 3 and now he is spending his time on the beach to find out the exploits for ios 5.1 untethered iPad 3 jailbreak.
I already mentioned in my previous posts that i0n1c has successfully got the ios 5.1 ipad 3 jailbreakwhich he has shown in a video that iPad 3 was running Cydia. If you are a regular reader of my blog you know that other exploits to jailbreak iPad 3 are also discovered by MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev-team and Phoenix-dev Frant Paul and Paul Griffin.
Another famous French jailbreaker and hacker Pod2g who was also behind the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak, is struggling hard to find vulnerabilities to jailbreak iOS 5.1.
The above post is a summary of updates and progress made on ipad 3 iOS 5.1 jailbreak. Join my blog below to get up to date information on jailbreaking, iOS and iDevices.
Some of the new iPad users are facing weak reception of WiFi signals, although mostly don’t face the problem at all. The weak signals sometimes cause slow internet speed. Many blogs are saying this is a kind of software issue and may be resolved with a software update. Below is the solution for the time being:
Note: Please recall your wireless network security key before proceeding.
Solution 1: Reconnect to WiFi Network
Go to Settings —> Select WiFi —> Tap the Blue Arrow to the right of your WiFi connection and Tap Forget this Network
Now tap again the network you want to connect and provide the WEP key to connect again you will see improved WiFi signals.
Solution 2: Reset Network Settings
Go to Settings –> Scroll to the bottom and tap Reset tap Reset Network Settings
Now reconnect to the desired WiFi network
Above two solutions are working with many people and hope will help you also if you are facing problem in WiFi signals.
If you are still facing WiFi signal problem you can visit Apple’s WiFi troubleshooting page for further assistance form Apple or contact your local service center.
