    This is a guide for gettin into the World Wide Web on your iPod Touch or iPhone WITHOUT an Access-Point(for example your home-router). Might be practical for people who have a PC or laptop in their living room and the router in the basement or far, far away from your PC or laptop(=you don't have a good Wi-Fi-Connection in your living room).

    What you need:
    -A jailbroken iPod Touch or iPhone(not tested)
    -Windows XP(might work in Vista, too(not tested!))
    -A W-LAN-Card in your PC or laptop
    -Wi-Fi must be switched on your iPod Touch/iPhone to "ON"
    -A working cable-LAN-connection from your PC or laptop to your router/switch/modem

    What you have to do:
    1) Create a peer-to-peer wireless network on your laptop

    2) Connect your iPod Touch/iPhone to this new network

    What you have to do(in detail):

    1)
    Click on "Control Panel">"Network Connections".
    Then double click on your wireless network and select "Properties".
    Go to "Wireless Networks" and then click "Add".
    Set the network name to "PC-Internet" or any other network name, that might be suitable for this network.
    Set data encryption to "disabled".
    Check the checkbox at the end ("This is a computer-to-computer (ad hoc) network; wireless access points are not used") and click "OK".

    Now double click on your cable-network and select "Properties".
    Go to the "Advanced"-tab and check the "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection"-checkbox.
    Click "OK" and click "OK" (on the following dialog!)one more time.

    2)
    On your iPod Touch/iPhone, go to "Settings>Wi-Fi".

    (You should see a new network called "PC-Internet".
    This is the network you just set up on your PC or laptop.)

    Tap on "PC-Internet" to connect.

    Now that you've connected to the touchpad network using your iPod Touch/iPhone, the wireless icon on your PC or laptop should start animating and you should be able to surf through the wohle World Wide Web with your PC only.

    The system behind that:

    You know, that you have an STABLE LAN-Connection on your PC or laptop. So you have internet, but not on your iPod Touch/iPhone. So how should you share your PC-Internet-Connection with your iPod Touch/iPhone?

    Ju just have to connect your iPod Touch or iPhone with your PC or laptop. After that you have to instruct your PC or laptop, that the LAN-Connection should be shared with your iPod Touch/iPhone. And then connect your iPod Touch/iPhone with your PC or laptop and both machines will use the same internet-connection (through your PC or laptop AND NOT THROUGH YOUR ROUTER DIRECTLY!).

    is your iPod Touch/iPhone jailbroken?
    did you try to reinstall the BSD Subsystem and OpenSSH?
