    I understand it is a dumb question, please by all means yell and scream at me. I just got my Touch in hopes (like the iPhone) it can go on the internet anywhere. I don't like cingular (I know you can get it unlocked), and i just plain don't like the phone feature, i don't know why...

    If I jailbreak my iPod, can I get a connection basically anywhere (Like the iPhone). I have been searching through threads like crazy, and sorry I can't seem to find anything.

    Also, if it's possible (with a jailbroken Touch) to bypass passwords and connect to any emitting wifi (Like a schools wifi for ex.

    Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

    You are wrong. WiFi noramlly only has a range of about a hundred to two hundred feet from the router. If you want a connection anywhere you'll have to get an iPhone. I suggest you study WiFi a little.

    I think you have a great misunderstanding of how wifi works

    the iphone has wifi and edge capabilities...
    the ipod touch only has wifi

    Wifi is not everywhere, so no you will not be able to access the internet everywhere... (thats where edge kicks in for the iphone)

    EDGE is connecting through your cell connection... and AT&T will bill ya for it

    Also.. the wifi being broadcast needs to either be open (no WEP, WAP etc)
    or you must have the WEP key to access it.... just like a laptop does not get internet everywhere.. neither does your ipod

    Ok I understand, thanks, but how about bypassing passwords, or is that just not possible...

    you can crack WEP passwords relatively quickly with use of a laptop... but it takes to much CPU power for the touch to ever be able to do it on its own..

    However from your first question I'm going to be blunt and say WEP cracking is gonna be over your head....

    just as it is for most of the community here, and most of us (if not all) rely on open wifi connections

    ahhh ok. I trust your judgement...most likely will be over my head.
    Well, thanks guys, if a mod wants to close this feel free.

    I'll be looking around for programs.

    you can use stumbler (install by using installer.app) to scan for unprotected (open) wireless networks. i use it all the time. you'll be suprised how much open networks you can find.

    Thx for the stumbler tip. Did not know about and it's great to view the wifi when in a big city.
