    My school is using the Internet Authentication System that requires a username and password.
    I have my username and password, but how can I type it in on my iPod touch?

    usually university networks are unsecured i.e. they let you connect to it without a WEP or WPA .. key and once you are connected in order to access the internet you need to put your login and password in.

    So connect to the school network, then load safari and type in any address e.g. google.com and that should bring up your school's page aking for your username and password.

    This is based on how most universities work, I'm only guessing your school has the same system since you say you have a username and password.

    If this doesn't work you need to give more info, like how do you connect to it from a PC or a laptop...

    sounds like it uses 802.1x which the iPod touch currently does not support

    If I use a laptop, when I go to other sites, it will pop up a window and ask me for the username and password.
