    I have an Apple 1st generation iPod Touch. I recently discontinued Qwest home internet service using a wireless high-speed DSL modem with my MacBook. While I had the Qwest service I was able to use my iPod Touch around the house by putting my Qwest network number into the Wi-Fi settings.

    I now have a Verizon USB727 aircard I'm not sure how to accomplish the same thing with it. I went to Settings>Wi-Fi Networks>Choose a Network... and first entered my Verizon account (phone) number. When that didn't work I entered the IP address, and then the router number. None of them worked.

    What I want to do is to be able to use the iPod Touch here at home with the Verizon USB727 aircard attached to my Apple MacBook.
    Where do I go from here?

    Thanks.

    I dont think you can share the connection through you macbook, sorry. But you can get a 3g to WiFi router (They do exist). They are pretty expensive though.

    Here's one

    in prefs, go to sharing, then internet sharing, and share from USB to Airport.
