    This ist the manual to do it with MacOSX, but i dont understand, how i can configure the settings of the Ipod Touch for this Wlan-Access.

    https://zivwiki.uni-muenster.de/cgi-bin/view/Anleitungen/FunkLANSetupMacOSX

    if i tried it by myself, it finds the uni-ms network, i can also connect to it, then i have to type in a password. but it isnt only password protected, i ve also give my login-name, but how?

    Can anybody help a noob? its my first apple ;-) Thanks a lot.

    If its asking for a USERNAME and password your out of luck. Sounds like its not compatible with the iPod Touch network.
    The iPod only allows you to enter a network KEY, thats NOT your personal password, its the encryption key. Ipod Touch will NOT work on any network that wants a username and password.

    My library's hotspot requires a un and pw. I use my iPod touch there and it works fine. Only problem is a 10 minute limit, after which I get disconnected because iPod seems to not keep a required separate window open for the library system to work. Thus I have to reconect for another 10 minutes---a real bummer!

    Other hotspots work fine without this 10 minute problem. They usually do not require un and pw.
