    I know theres an App out there that lets you use your iphone as a modem to connect your computer to the web. Now im curious to know if theres a way to connect to the internet wirelessly through your ipod or iphone.

    This would be especcially helpful to us Nintendo DS gamers who have WPA encrypted wireless routers, and cant connect directly to the router.

    Edit- Logically, i would assume you could use the ipod touch as a modem for your laptop like the iphone just by connecting to your wireless router that your laptop cant connect to (i.e. the eeepc not being able to normally connect to WPA encrypted connections), right?

    I highly doubt there's an app for that. It would be nice to see some iPod and DS integration though. D:

    i would say that there should be a way for the iphone
    i know that u can use motorolla RAZR's and KRAZR's to do that, so if i get the chance ill look into it

    note- i cant quite remember if the phones needed a hack to do so.


    this would not be wireless as far as i know
