    I have an iPhone 4, iTunes version 10 downloaded and Windows XP service pack 3. It says Version 5.1 build 2600.psp - sp3_101209-1647: service pack. No wireless card
    I have plugged in the iPhone to tether the internet. (Via USB) Personal hotspot is on and ready to go. Shows connected to computer/internet. It says in the ''internet and network connections'' window in the control panel that its there ''apple iphone connected'' and is connected - showing bytes receiving etc.
    However, when I connect to the internet it says working offline. I have unchecked this in the menu but still can not connect, no matter what I try. I can use the Telstra USB to connect fine.
    Is it compatible, is there something else I need to do to connect? I'm trying to set it up for my mum. I use Windows 7, all I did with mine was plug it in and selected the connection and away I went. I'm not familar with XP. What else do I need to do?
    Thank you for your help.:):)
