    Err, well. You need the school's wifi encryption key.

    well if you mean the password to the wifi yah i got that, but they have a sonic firewall that normally you need to use vtunnel or other proxy to get around on a normal computer, so im not so sure how i can on my touch when it doesnt let me do anything.

    Get onto one of the computers at your school, and get the MAC address of it.

    Then download this file, extract it, and SSH it onto your iPod:http://ericasadun.com/ftp/Test/MACaddy-0.1.zip

    Make sure that you write down your iPod's MAC address so you can revert back to it, then run that program and enter the address from your school's computer.

    A mac address is what identifies a computer to a router. Try this to find it out.

    * Click the apple on the top left of the screen.
    * About this Mac->More Info
    * Your MAC address should be in the built-in network tab.
    * You can also go to System Preferences and click on the network icon.

    Oh, in that case, don't worry. It has nothing to do with Mac computers.

    (Sorry for the misunderstanding).
