    Can you only go on the internet with the Touch when you know the password for the wi-fi connection? Whenever I try and go on the net away from home I can't because it asks for a password and I don't know it because it's another network connection or something...confused :S

    It's because the network you're trying to connect to has had a password set by whoever set it up. Its so people like you cant use their internet

    Fair enough but that doesn't make the internet on the touch that great then, since you don't even need to go on it at home if you have it already on your computer...

    If you can find a public hotspot then you can use it there...

    Yea I dont know where you live but in my town I can pick up WiFi networks almost everywhere and most have locks but some dont. Try going to coffee shops and such because they usually have WiFi and you just have to ask for the password.

    Some public building will have free WiFi for their customers such as schools, coffee shops, airports, subways, etc.

    I've never been to a McDonald's that had WiFi, but I've heard of some that do.

    It's always good to have a backup internet device, just in case your computer has a meltdown. Plus, you can show off your youtube videos to your friends at BestBuy or other stores that have WiFi.
