    Hello,
    Can somebody tell me what is needed to comunicate between my PC and my Ipod touch ?
    I have a cable connection to my PC and I receive ADSL from my provider. Does the Ipod comunicate to the PC or to a router ? Do I need to buy only a PCI wifi card or do I need to buy a WIFI Router anyway ? Thank you for your answer.

    if you did a jailbreak then use winscp on desktop after installing openssh on ipt. you will need a router or adhoc network for this.
    or you can use total commander and tpot. or itunnel suite to communicate or ssh with usb connecter.not sure whether you need to jailbreak for this .
    remember google is your friend.

    No, I am talking about WIFI communication between the Ipod touch and my desktop PC. Is a WIFI PCI card only necessary or do I need anything else ?
    Thanks.

    You need a wireless router.

    You need to connect to WiFi on your iPod, and have your computer have a wired internet connection.

    you need a wireless router, Netgear/Belkin/USRobotics are standard makes. The PCI card that you have put in your PC wont allow you to connect your ipod to your PC. make sure you get a ADSL router if you have a ADSL line!

    Your ADSL cable then plugs directly into your router. then you can connect your desktop to your router with a cable or the wireless card that i think you have mentioned that you have. Then you can connect your ipod touch to the router and browse the internet with that in the range of your router.

    Theres not a great deal that you can do with your ipod touch to communicate with your PC however. It wont sync wirelessly yetand to put music on it has to be pluged in via the cable provided with your ipod.

    If you get the remote app from the appstore you can control the music from your ipod on your PC however.

    I think that has answered your question?
