    I don't know if this is a problem with my USB dongle, or my iPod, so I decided to just put it here.

    I have a TrendNET TEW-424UB USB Wireless Adapter. I have plugged it into my computer and installed the drivers for it. I created an ad-hoc network called 'default' with wireless encryption (WEP). I shared my Local Area Connection with the adapter and my iPod connects to it fine. However, after a few seconds connecting, the iPod's connection bar goes to one bar. No matter how close or how far I get to the adapter, it doesn't get any larger. I'm limited to around 40 KB/s when I should get 1.1 MB/s. (Actually, I should get like 5 MB/s, 20 Megabit/second connection) How can I fix this? It's really annoying. Sometimes, it will give me full connectivity if another iPod touch is connected, but when I plug it into a charger, it will dissipate to one bar. I would really like this issue fixed so I don't have ot fiddle with it everytime I want to use it. Ever since I found out how to share it, I've been using my iPod a lot more.
