    Is it possible to tunnel if your wifi is protected?

    Yup.

    I'm on a 128bit WEP network with MAC address filtering.

    well, as long as you're on the network, theres no reason why it wouldnt work. i suppose i see how you might think the encryption couuld mess it up or something though.

    Can you use WAP for this? WEP is so vulnerable.. it can be hacked in seconds now..

    well, its WPA and it supports it a little bit. WPA, WPA2, and anything but enterprise or anything involving a key file on the device.

    WPA is more secure, but a much fewer number of devices support it fully. The iPod Touch only supports WPA and WPA2, not enterprise or 802.1X, or RSN.

    WEP isn't the *most* secure on it's own. But hide your SSID and enable MAC filtering and you're pretty damn safe - and compatible.

    i ask because nothing ever works for me. "Plug n play" my ass... plug, ring customer services, be on hold for hours, read forums, THEN play

    that's what I get for buying MICROSOFT windows, and MICROSOFT xbox.

    Let's hope apple impress me, when the damn thing turns up.
