    I was hoping somebody could make an app that will allow your ipod touch to pick up a wifi signal then become a router and relay the signal to other ipod touches further away. This seems very possible, because there are apps allowing you ipod touch to work as a wifi "receiver" for a computer. Think of it like this diagram
    KEY:
    \/
    [ ] - Router

    () - Ipod touch#1
    [] - Ipod touch#2

    - - - - signal



    \/
    [ ] - - - - () - - - - -[]

    wtf r u talking about... i mean it becomes a relayer to double the distance so say this is a football field. the router is at the 1 yard line. the signal dies at the 30 yard line and ipod #1 is at the 25 yard line. ipod#1 connects with app and relays the signal further to an ipod(ipod#2) at the 50 yard line. understand? it becomes a relayer... google it...

    that would be called a laptop or a router
    a router with custom firmware would be able to do this
    a ipod touch cannot do everything

    From my understanding, that uses an iPhone's EDGE/3G network connection and converts the iPhone into a Wifi hotspot for other devices to connect to. You can't actually connect to a wifi signal and then send out a wifi signal at the same time.

    I highly doubt it, but okay. I'm no expert or anything, but I've looked into tethering my Macbook to my iPod Touch, but my Macbook is on a Wifi network. So if I want to tether it, then I will need to get a wired connection on my Macbook. Also, if you look at the link you posted, you see no mention of iPod Touch, it just says 'Compatible with iPhone blahblahblah' or whatever.
