I'm sharing a 3G connection from my laptop to my IPAD over a wireless peer-to-peer network, using the method described here: I have to turn off my Windows firewall to get it to work. Is there a way to add an exception instead?

It should work if you turn off firewall establish the connection and then with the connection running turn on firewall so that it accepts the connection as an existing connection.
