I tried this with my iPhone 4 (using 3G Internet access) --> MacBook Pro --> iPad Wifi, and it doesn't seem to work with the iPad. I know tethering is disabled with the iPads. Does anyone have any different luck?

This is, by far, the best thing ever! Thanks Maclife!

For some reason it keeps saying "unable to join the network..." on my iPhone.

This is awesome!  I've been trying to figure out how to do this for a while.

My frustration is that, when I'm in a hotel room, I'm typically using the room's non-free wifi. I'd like Airport to both receive and create a new network. There should be a clever way to do it, perhaps using different channels.
