    Hey!

    Today I bought the TP-Link WLAN/Wifi-Adapter (it like a usb stick). I installed the driver and created a new network, but the ipod doesnt recognize this network. He only shows other visible devices(Wlan...), which the computer also shows.

    What am I supposed to do in order to connect to the i-net with my ipod touch 2g. I also have WLAN on my notebook, but hte ipod doesnt recognize it too.

    Thankfull for any help.

    I just clicked on the icon that shows the wireless connection and set up a new network.
    Can I connect my ipod to the net with such an adapter????

    that means you do not have an internet connection

    in short, your not connected to the internet but you are connected to the network

    just allow network sharing and allow internet sharing in your laptop. that's the way my friends do it, that's the way my dad's using it and that's what my brother is doing with his psp
