    Hi and thank you for your time to read over my thread.

    I use Macbook Pro and my internet connection is from wired ethernet
    I turned on the Airport and I've used the Internet Sharing menu to use ipod,
    but I don't think Wi-Fi on my ipod touch isn't functioning well.

    Funny thing is, websurfing google and apple site works perfectly,
    but when it comes to any other random websites, it won't work.

    I've tried disabling MAC filtering from my router setup, no luck.
    Tried Open DNS, no luck either. Tried resetting, everything...

    However, when I'm outside and using neighbors wireless signal to surf the web, it works with zero error.

    I have just bought a new router, D-Link EBR 2130(I think this is the name)

    I'm thinking there is a problem with my Internet sharing but
    my nintendo ds worked fine this way..

    Could anyone please share some advice?

    THanks again

    Sounds like there is some communications issues between internet sharing on your Mac and the iPod Touch's Wi-Fi. I would recommend escaping that middle-man and going straight for a wireless router. They're cheaper now more than ever, check your Sunday ads for a good deal. This is likely to improve your experience exponentially.

    I use the Linksys router you stated above.

    Internet is great on the touch.
    No issues.

    Getting around 500kbps with Fios
