    Just wanted to say hi to everyone!!

    I'm joining to find out more about getting wifi on my Ipod Touch 2G. I have an Acer Aspire 8730 that is a laptop (I never travel with it because it weighs a ton). I have Verizon DSL wired modem. Windows Vista Home Premium with Internet Explorer 7.0.

    What do I need to get/buy to be able to roam the streets of NYC or France, etc. with Wi-Fi enabled on my Ipod Touch 8gb 2nd Generation w/ 3.0 upgrade?

    All suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!!

    Umm... you can't have wifi everywhere, but there are wifi spots all over the place in cities.

    Verizon has a device called MiFi thats lets you have WiFi wherever you have 3G service, sounds like exactly what you need

    That is, however, a pay-per-month service with a contract. It's pretty expensive (or I'd have one)

    Thanks, I hope this will work. But do I need to have a wireless modem to begin with?

    It is a cellphone, modem, and router all in one. Basically it receives the cellular signal, then converts it into a WiFi signal for up to 5 devices to connect to
