    Hey.

    I got my Ipod Touch yesterday and I love it.

    Would be even better if I could use the wifi.

    Currently my internet connetion to my computer is wired.

    I have read that you can make it into wifi without a router using ad hoc.

    Only one question if I plug a wireless usb adapter into my computer would that then enable me to set up this ad hoc? or do I need some other equipment.

    Thanks

    Okay, heres the low down.
    You need a wireless internet card that is capable of accessing wi-fi on your computer.
    It could either be a built in card on your laptop, or a wireless internet card on your PC.

    Go to this video.

    It will explain how to do it on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Mac OS 10

    or just trying using the search function, and you'd come up with all sorts of things.

    Well instead of telling people to use the search button (which they dont), you might as well just give them the link to the thread.

    I actually saw a post where somebody was like, dont bump threads, just make a new one like your supposed to...

    Im like seriously?!?!?.. is that how you think things work..
    It says clearly in the rules that people should not make new threads for problems that already have open discussions.

    You can just use a usb wifi dongle and you should be fine? Range wouldn't be far I don't think, but it should be fine if your just around your house.

    Creating a computer-to-computer usb network is fine and it doesnt cost any money, which is what I think hes trying to accomplish
