    Hi, I am going to get my iPod touch for christmas and I was wondering how many places have wi-fi. And does wi-fi just mean a wireless connection so does that mean if my friend has a router I can go on the internet from my ipod touch from his house.

    Wi-Fi is not usualy avalable outside your own home. Most people have passwords on their wifi's which stop people connecting. This means that normaly you can only connect to your homes wifi or in your case, your friends wifi, if he tells you the password.

    Some coffee shops such as Starbucks have wi-fi available. My library has wi-fi available, too. Many places have wifi but you won't be able to move around and keep connectivity.

    Those coffee places you most probably have to pay.

    Since no one has properly answered this so far, I will

    A wireless router costs about 90. I suggest NetGear and I advise you to look in the back and make sure it has all the capabilities and stuff in the back. (This is if you are gonna buy one)

    A wireless router is good if you keep it upstairs or on the main floor so you can get a good signal all around. I can go quite a ways down my house and still get a signal from mine.

    You can only connect if you know the password for the connection or if it's an open network.

    You might be able to connect to your friends if he is right next to you. It might be weak or strong depending on the wireless traffic, his router and your location.

    Any other questions can come to me

    If you go on a school campus, they should have wi-fi. Considering that you ARE a student there with a log in.
