can someone quickly explain why a usb mobile broadband dongle for laptops, a usb to Apple cable and an ipod Touch wont give me mobile broadband on my ipod? or will it? because it's the dongle doing the work, not the computer device. i am unaware you need special hardware installed if you have a broadband dongle. my old laptop certainly hasn't got anything special in the hardware department yet i can get on the go broadband with my friend's dongle plugged into it.
