    Okay so I would like to know if there a solution to tethering wifi from the ipod touch to another device (i.e. laptop or PS3).

    I am sure a bunch of you are thinking why would you want to do that, those devices have wireless cards too so I'll explain.

    Clear wireless is available in my area and they sell an iSpot (a hotspot for 'i' - devices from apple, ipad, ipod, iphone). The hotspot can be hacked but it looks too risky and not so promising. So my goal is to get the ispot (unlimited 4g data) and have it feed wifi to my itouch and then tether from my itouch to my laptop etc.

    Is it possible? and is it possible without jail breaking?

    Thanks

    Not possible. The iPod Touch doesn't have a radio that can both connect as a device and transmit as a base station, even jailbroken.

    4G -> Hotspot -> wifi -> Mac -> Ethernet -> Airport Express -> wifi -> all devices

    What if I used an iphone 3GS that was unlocked (but no AT&T service). would it be possible then?

    and the general you are going to have to spell out what you mean. I don't think the ispot connects to a mac.... I much rather have the clear ispot for $25 a month over a clear hotspot for $45 a month (www.clear.com)

    No. Unless you have a device with two wifi radios, it will not be possible.

    Oh. They made a device that is a wifi hotspot but doesn't let wifi devices connect to it? I recommend getting a real ISP instead of this fly by night limitations-a-plenty horse ****.

    Perhaps you can bump up to the Clear Spot 4G http://www.clear.com/spot/4g so you can share with the rest of your devices. Otherwise, there is no way you can use the iSpot/iPod Touch to tether to your other connected devices.
