I don't mean like tethering, where your computer uses the Ipod's wifi, I mean the other way round.
Well on a windows system you can setup your computer as a router and have your ipod touch connect to that.
Here's a guide on setting up internet connection sharing in windows:
Does the computer have to have a wireless adapter/card to do that? Just in case the computer is connected to the internet through cable.
Nevermind... It's way too complicated....
there's a thread like 'how to use your laptop as a wifi router'.
Off Topic: How do you do that?
if you're using Vista, it's heaps easy
Click on your network icon
Create a network
- Create Ad-hoc network
Make sure to click on Enable Internet Connection Sharing
Connect to the network using your iPod and you're done!!
It's the only way i can get internet on my iPod
OP, you need a wireless card in your pc to do the reverse tethering Otherwise, how do you want the computer to emit a wireless signal from no-antenna lol. If you don't, every laptop (these day) have one. I doubt your desktop is having one of these so euah, you are better buying a new wireless router to be futur-proof... lol. Don't forget to turn WPA2 (Wireless Security) on so your neighbors can't steal your internet
Otherwise, I think that there's this tutorial you can try. http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=202656 It's internet by USB cable.
That's what I was thinking too.
Thanks for the tutorial
Yep.. adhoc is the way to go. How do you expect the ipod to connect to your computer with out a wireless card? of course it needs one.
i have a data plan on my phone..
im able to connect it to the computer and allow the computer to use the internet so could i set up something where my ipod connects to the internet through my computer which is using the data plan?
