comment Tethering on Windows 7?
I got an error telling me that I need administrator privileges (which I had). Turns out that creating ad-hoc networks is disabled in our company (the error message is a bit misleading). You can check that via netsh wlan show filters.

+1. This worked for me. Note that I had to manually enter 99 months, the spinner control would only let me go up to 60.

comment Can I create Windows command prompt custom commands?
@grawity: Didn't think about that :) I always put this kind of stuff in some kind of startup script (see this thread for a Windows equivalent of .bashrc). Thanks for pointing out the direct way, though!

comment Can I create Windows command prompt custom commands?
You can do it using doskey, but entering Ctrl+D isn't easy. The full command is doskey ?=exit where you have to replace ? with the character of control code 4. You will need an editor that lets you enter special characters. For example in Vim, you would type (in insert mode) Ctrl+V, 4, Enter.

comment Backspace does not work in Cygwin
I had the TERM environment variable set to msys via the Windows environment variable settings as suggested on StackOverflow to help with git problems on Windows. Simply resetting it to cygwin in .bashrc didn't help, but removing the TERM entry from the Windows settings did. Thanks for pointing me into the right direction!
