    I was thinking of buying a 8gb ipod touch 2g with some of my tax return money and I was wondering

    1. I read online that it was really hard to access some wireless networks. I have WEP Key Encryption on my network. ive connected other wireless devices to it before (PSP, Laptop) will be any different than those.

    2. Can you use the wifi to transfer files back and fourth instead of using the usb cable.

    1. It's not very hard to get access to wireless entworks, atleast not for me personally. I havent never had any problem with any wireless network, im even stealing someone's internet right now.

    2. You cant use wifi to transfer files, only the USB cable provided. However, if and when jailbreak comes, its a possibility.

    That is precisely why you don't see people using their PS3 or Xbox 360 to play music and videos from their iPod Touch.

    Amazon had 32GB 2nd Gen for $299 new two days ago from a retail store FairBuy. You never know when something like that might show up again.

    He's giving his iTunes account too, so they will still work, I would go for that iPod, good condition and your saving $$$ with those apps.

    Just make sure you change the email to yours and everything and that the seller deauthorizes computers.

    On another note, WEP is significantly less secure than WPA2. It's easy to decrypt, you might want to change that in router settings, if your router supports it.
