    So, you're saying that you want to use the iPod touch's wireless connection somehow through your computer?

    Considering the iPod touch is connected to Wi-Fi, why can't the computer be connected normally?

    You're saying that there is a card sharing 3 computers, although the iPod touch makes it four.

    I don't think this is possible.

    Unfortunately, this is not possible. Spring for a few Ethernet cables to get wired internet.

    EDIT:

    Kiks, I think he was referring to a wireless card that one would install on a computer in order to pick up a wifi signal.

    It's not possible at the moment.

    You have a linksys router/modem? or just a router? Try getting a wireless router. It's cheap.

    On a similar issue, I've started using Joiju Spot (http://joiku.com/) on my Nokia n95 if I'm out and about and can't find any wi-fi for my laptop. All I need to do is fire up the Joiku Spot app on the phone and it turns the n95 into a wi-fi hotspot (using my unlimited Vodafone 3G subscription to access the web via the phone).

    I plan to use this in conjunction with my Touch if I'm ever struggling for wi-fi.

    there is a linksys thing that send out the wifi. There is a USB card that recieves the signal. We have three home computers that need the card to be conected. I wana make my computer recognize and recieve that signal through the iPod. Someone said that its not posible YET?

    i need almost exactly this. the only difference is that my laptop is old and doesnt have a wifi card. so i need to connect over USB to my ipod and recieve the singnal from my "linksys thing" (which is called a wireless router, by the way.)
