    only way is via wi-fi. what kind of wi-fi is being used? maybe it's using a different 802.1xz and the iPod doesn't recognize it. have you tried moving very close to the wifi signal?

    usb doesn't get you internet

    if the MBP is receiving internet via wi-fi, it cannot share it with the ipod. to share internet mbp would need to be getting internet via ethernet.
