    Is there any sort of cydia app or something that allows your touch to create an Ad-Hoc Wi-Fi network? I want to play Vector Ball with a friend with no network present. Obviously I'm not looking to connect to the internet with this network. Thank you in advance!

    Probably not. I created an Ad-Hoc off of my wireless adapter and I was able to connect to it through my iPod, but the network would never start unless my iPod was connected. It wouldn't work though. It said I was connected, but it wouldn't allow me to use Safari or 98% of my other Network-Using apps. The only ones that worked were the VNC ones. Which is weird.

    You probably did not set up internet sharing on your computer when you set up the network, so the network was created, but it had no connectivity
    That's what it was for me, at least

    PdaNet tethers iPhones to computers so that you can use the 3G or EDGE connection on your computer. It doesn't work for iPod touches.

    Problem solved, easy way

    if anyone is still struggling with this prob (believe me i was, for 2 freaking days)

    here is a Tutorial without all the internet sharing and static IP mummbojambo

    U have to excuse any grammatical mistakes, I'm from Germany
    and i just registered here so anyone experiencing probs with "Ipod Touch wifi + Ad-Hoc = I-net connection" will finally find a solution that works and is easy

    So here it goes, found it in a German Board and im translating it for u guys =) :

    u need:
    -Laptop/PC with a wifi-adapter/card etc.
    -wired internet (not sure if its the right term but i hope so)
    -Ipod Touch / Iphone

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    1. Download CCProxy http://www.youngzsoft.net/ccproxy/proxy-server-download.htm

    2. install it and go to options
    check everything except for "NT Service"
    minimize the prog. / keep it running

    3. plug in the wired connection so u establish an internet connection

    4. set up an Ad-Hoc Wireless Network (if u dont know how that works, google : )
    no need for shared internet connection, a name is pretty much all u need to type in

    5. pc is ready to go, time for the Ipod Touch (in my case) to get to work : )

    6. Open settings, go to wifi (i hope ur looking at the ipod settings right now ;P )

    7. u should see the recently created Ad-Hoc network,
    connect to the newtwork

    8. hit the little blue arrow beneath the Ad-Hoc network, u should see that the IP and the Subnetmask have already been put in , keep everything it is

    7. below u see HTTP-Proxy, set it to manual
    in Server u put the IP Adress of ur Wifi Connection (of ur laptop/pc)

    8. Port is 808

    Thats it folks, ur Ipod Touch / Iphone is now connected to the Internet : )


    I couldnt believe it the first time, cause i tried so many things which were much more complex (change gateway, DNS... was a pain in the a**)

    Credit for this Tut goes to "DonBarbone"


    EDIT: little downside, apparently its not possible to play apps online or use the YT channel : (
    still surfing and downloading works fine

    I just wanna raise this one up again.
    This one solved my problem about my laptop as a hotspot, but as stated here, there is a downside.. T__T

    so.. how can I use my laptop's wifi without using this? *I want youtube too*
    what could be causing this problem?

    Thanks.

    *Edit*
    added downside: I can't SSH using winscp.. so I'm stuck with total commander.. T__T

    Woah, big bumb. Anywho. Ad-Hoc is computer to computer, that's why it wouldn't work without going through the process stated above.
