    Is this possible? If you don't have a wireless router around, can you share the internet between your Mac and your iPod through the Firewire port?

    I don't think the iPods are compatitble (datawise) with firewire anymore. Though you can still charge via firewire ...
    Also, no one has written an internet sharing program through usb.

    Good point... if you can't send data through a Firewire cable, how can you possible connect to the internet through one. Just for kicks though, I'm still going to try it when I get home. I'll post here if it doesn't work.
