    I don't mean like tethering, where your computer uses the Ipod's wifi, I mean the other way round.

    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....

    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

    iLINUX, PDAnet.

    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.

    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.
