    I have a wired in router (not wifi) but i just got a touch and want wifi. Is there anyway to have my computer make a hotspot or something?

    As far as I know, to have wifi at home one needs wifi.

    Yes, if your computer has Airport. If it does, go to System Preferences>Sharing and look for Internet Sharing.

    You can share your wired connection to computers using Airport and then set a network name and password.

    Why not try it?

    If it doesn't work out of the box, try these settings on the touch;

    IP 10.0.2.2
    Subnet 255.255.255.0
    Router 10.0.2.1
    DNS 10.0.2.1

    I created a network and it showed up on my ipod but when I chose the network, it said, "unable to join network". I know that this should work because I have researched it on google. by the way I am running 10.4.11 and have a 2g touch.
