    I want to be able to make my computer able to send a wireless signal to my ipod touch so that my computer acts as a wireless router and then my ipod touch connects to it and can use it's internet.

    My computer at the moment is wired so I assume I need something to send the signal such as a wireless usb dongle or a wireless network card.

    But I'm looking for a more step by step guide on how to do this for windows.

    Why not buy a router? It's much easier in the long run.

    Almost impossible to do that on Windows. If you run linux and have the right wireless card you can do it fairly easily.

    Takes about 15 seconds to setup on a Mac. Tried setting it up on a PC, which I was told was possible, and gave up after 2 hours. All the right words are there on a PC I just couldn't make it work. This is assuming the computer already has a WiFi card or built in.

    If you can connect to the internet wirelessly you have a wifi card, if you can connect only via ethernet (or dial up...) then you do not have a wifi card.

    If it is a desk top PC it probably doesn't have a WiFi card inside or built in. If it is a Mac it might and you can check the Network System Preference. If it is a lap top Mac or PC made in the last few years it probably has WiFi built in.

    The USB WiFi adapters can be bought cheap, the last one I bought was $10. $20-30 are everywhere. If you have a PC most/all of them will work, for a Mac be sure there are drivers available, there are several compatible adapters.
