    I am in a wifi area but my laptop doesn't have the internet. Can I use my iPod to connect my LAPTOP to the internet?

    Hmm I know of computer to ipod connection sharing, but I haven't heard of the iPod reciprocating, and sending a connection to a computer. I don't think there is a setting where you can choose to "share this connection". I'm going to say no, you can't.

    well... if your ipod is jailbroken, and you have a wifi connection, just download cydia.app, and download java from it!
    EDIT: You only said that your computer did not have wifi, but you have a wifi connection arround!

    No buddy but dude you can use your laptop to connect your ipod touch to your home internet. But this support has been a bit not appreciated in 1.1.3/4 they cant remember the laptop network so it only works with the original apps but for all the previous version it works like a charm. I will write a guide on it if people are interested.
