    So, this is what happened today. I downloaded an app yesterday (WiFiGet) which I hoped would help me "bypassing" the school's wifi blockage.

    When I ran the app, I saw sub-nets of my school network. One of them (the only one visible by the normal way one would connect)wouldn't let me conncet, but then I tried with the same network (in a nother channel) and worked! Now I have WiFi everyday!

    Even if this does not help, your iPod may find wireless networks you were not aware of.

    Hope this helped

    Ok... Thanks
    I might try it out later on tomorrow at school. Except we basically have unlocked WiFi everywhere.

    We have a guest network, but it doesn't even freakin' work. The Admin one does, but of course, locked.

    Yea but if your school uses Websense to block stuff your screwed.. The only way I've been able to bypass it is by running a proxy out of my own home.. And it's not CGI so thing lime facebook and YouTube don't work.. But it's handy.

    If your school has websense and has a "guest" or unsecured network set your proxy setting in the network to:
    Manual
    172.16.0.10
    Port: 80
    Auth: Off

    That's the normal setting for schools with sebsense.
