    HI I'm in a rush and don't have time to search the forums so I'm sorry if this is a double.

    I am wondering if the is a way to use a iMac to connect my iPod Touch 2Gen to the internet. Why? because my wireless is set to shut off during the night by the admin, but the Ethernet to my iMac still works. therefore i want to use the internet connection of my imac and feed it to my ipod via a bluetooth PAN (personal area network).
    oh it should be known that i am running JB iOS 4.0 with everything enabled so there is no limmitations to what i can do on the ipod end.

    If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, or just knows how please let me know

    ^^^^Like he said, turn on Internet sharing and just make an adhoc network over wifi. Not sure about Bluetooth though.
