    I don't have a wireless router at home, so I am unable to use my ipod's net and thus unable to install ssh, since there are no hotspots! I have internet in my pc connected through a normal fixed router (not wireless). What I want to know is can I access internet in my ipod by connecting it to my PC using the USB cable?
    If yes, please give me the procedure!
    Thanks in advance

    no, go out and buy a cheap USB wifi dongle, this will transmit your interent connection over wi-fi, beware it will slow it down if your using the wi-fi a lot as your sharing the connection

    Or even, if you have a WiFi chip in ur pc, just set up a Ad-Hoc network. Its faster also because it doesnt go through a router

    A router would cost around 50 dollars and I have spent all my savings in ipod and my mobile. I think I will have to search for a usb wirelss dongle.
    Thanks people
