Hey everyone, I know a lot of people have the issue of not having wifi at home. This is a walk-through of sorts to help those without wifi access at home. There is, however, a hardware requirement: your computer must have a wireless card. This is because I'm going to explain how to share your internet connection with your ipod touch. This is done by essentially turning your computer into a wireless access point (WAP). Mac users: (NOTE: This method for macs may not work. I've had mixed results when using it myself. I'm trying to troubleshoot it. I'll update as soon as possible.) Step 1: Open up your System Preferences. Step 2: Click on "Sharing" Step 3: Click on the "Internet" tab Step 4: Select "Built-in Ethernet" from the drop-down menu Step 5: Check the box next to "Airport" (Optional) encrypt the signal: Step 5a: Click "Airport Options" Step 5b: Check the box to "Enable Encryption" Step 5c: Type in a 13-character password Step 5d: Re-type the password in the second box Step 5e: Select 128-bit Step 5f: Click OkStep 6: Click Start Step 7: Click on the "Services" tab Step 8: Check the box next to Person Web Sharing Step 9: Click Start Mac users, Congratulations! You now have a working wifi network in your home. Connect to your network with the touch and if you enabled encryption, type in the same password you used when setting up. If you haven't done so already, jailbreak your ipod touch. Enjoy! Windows XP users: Step 1: Open up Control Panel Step 2: Open up Network Connections Step 3: Right click on "Wireless Network Connection" Step 4: Click on "Properties" Step 5: Click on the "Wireless Networks" tab Step 6: Click "Add" Step 7: Name your network in the "Network name (SSID)" box If you do not want encryption: Step a: Select "Shared" from the "Network Authentication" menu Step b: Select "Disabled" from the "Data Encryption" menu Step c: Type in a 5 or 13 character password in the Network key boxes. Step d: Check the "Computer-to-computer network" box (at the bottom) Step e: Click Ok If you do want encryption: Step a: Select "Shared" from the "Network Authentication" menu Step b: Select "WEP" from the "Date Encryption" menu Step c: Uncheck the "The key is provided for me" box Step d: Type in a 13-character password in the "Network key" box Step e: Retype the same key in the "Confirm network key" box Step f: Check the "Computer-to-computer network" box Step g: Click Ok step 8: Click Ok again Step 9: Open up Network Connections again Step 10: Right click on "Local Area Network Connection" Step 11: Click on Properties Step 12: Click on the "Advanced" tab Step 13: Check both boxes under the "Internet Connection Sharing" section. Step 14: Click Ok Step 15: Right click on "Wireless Network Connection" Step 16: Click on "View Available Wireless Networks" Step 17: Click "Refresh Network List" Step 18: Connect to the network you just created Yay, XP users! You've now managed to create a wifi network at home. Connect your touch to the network and enter the same password you used while creating the network. You can now jailbreak without a problem. Enjoy! Again, this solution only works for people who have wifi capable computers. I'll try to add a guide for users running Vista. I have no person experience with it, so I can't do at the moment. Hope this helps and please, let me know what you all think. EDIT: I found the Windows help site for vista users trying to set up ad hoc networks. Look here Hope this helps the Vista users out there. I don't have access to vista, so I can't do a guide myself. If someone would like to add a vista guide, I'd be happy to place it in the first post, with proper credit given, of course.
