    Alright, I'm getting a good signal on my laptop from my neighbor but can only get it on the touch when I'm outside. Is there any way to piggy-back off of my laptop? Any responses would be greatly appreciated.....thanks!

    If you've got internet access yourself, either pick up a cheap router (under $30 if you look around) or a USB wireless adapter for your laptop (under $20 if you look around). Then you can just setup the router or use internet sharing... You'll probably be happy being able to get access anywhere in your house...

    Would something like this help? Like I said, I'm pulling from a neighbor......the laptop gets it but the ipod doesn't.
    (Dynex Wireless-G USB 2.0 network adapter..... $30 Best Buy)
