Sharing my iPad wyfy with another iPad on a cruise ship

Recommended Posts

OK, I want to give back to the cruise ship that is charging me a buck a Minute for wyfy on my iPad. What I want to do is log into my buck a minute account, and have my wife check her email using a ‘shared wyfy’ to her iPad. If I had cellular on my phone, it would be the same as having a wyfy hotspot I guess. I havin’t been able to figure out a way to do it using two iPads and a single wyfy account. I figure networking both iPads using Bluetooth and somehow sending the wyfy connection to her iPad. I am willing to bet someone has done this. It likely doesn’t matter, but I am using a brand new iPad Pro, and she is using my old IPad Air 2. 

 

Again, I just want to slave a wyfy connection from my pro to the Air, and pay only for the one connection. When I turn off the wyfy connection on the pro, the Air will loose its connection of course. I would even be willing to connect via a cable if it would work. Any ideas?

That is a great idea, except that I have 12 employees that depend on me to keep 3 business running and making sure everyone is getting along. Some of these employees don't speak the same language either. The other option, of course, is to close the 3 business' and retire. Sadly, I feel that would not be good for my employees or their families that depend on me to keep the stores open and running. Anyway, I would like a solution. PS. I work 7 days a week. Getting on a cruise ship is the only vacation I ever get, else I always go to work...... and I do enjoy the cruise.

pay the WiFi fee. $240 to keep your business running seems cheap.

Actually, it is a $1.95 per min, and I do pay that, but that is for each individual log on. How much data do you use reading an email? None. Thus, I have no problem logging in and having my wife check her email at the same time as I do mine.That is the request for help I am asking. If they charged for the amount of data I used, no problem. They don't.  Lets face it, they are doing their best to squeeze every penny that they can our of the people on the boat. Does anybody know of a router I can use that can log into a wyfi system, and connect my laptops to???? I estimate if I spent $200 on one, it would pay for itself on a single cruise.
