    i have a simple question, sorry if its a repeat thread.

    i study in a boarding school, and there is no internet allowed, but there is a dim signal in our 18 acre field and only laptops are able to catch it like maybe 20% with a wifi booster. i was wondering if there is a wifi repeater that doesn't need a computer cuz i have no access to one and i want to run my ipod touch with a wifi repeater. can anyone tell if its possible or am i getting everything wrong , with my lack of knowledge.

    i would appriciate your help.

    Nope, you can do it with your ipod, in safari. Just connect to it wirelessly, and set the ipods IP address to 192.168.0.x where x is a number between 2 and 253. Then browse to either 192.168.0.254 or 192.168.0.1 (I forget which it is, I have too many network devices lol)

    You gotta set your IP address manually. Usually the same as I said in my post up there^^ but could sometimes be 192.168.1.x
