Hi im a compleat noob on wifi connections and I already tried to google it, but I still dont understand exactly what it is or what I need to do to get a WiFi Connection in my house.

if this helps-> I live on a ranch so I have to have satellite internet.

also I was wondering, If you have satellite, what router do you use.

P.S. Im gonna get a Ipod touch this weekend =)

Hi im a compleat noob
1. That's an interesting way to spell "complete"...
2. Yes, you are.

Anyways, WiFi is basically wireless internet. Devices such as the iPod Touch have WiFi built in. This means that if you have a router that has "antennas" on them, you can have a wireless connection to your iPod touch. I'm not very familiar with Satellite internet, but my guess is that you can still buy any wireless router available. If not, you'll have to look for one that is compatible with satellite internet.

If you're looking for a wireless router, I suggest getting this:

That Linksys router is probably the most popular (but not best) router right now.


Here's a Wiki page on WiFi if you want to learn more:

Oh, c'mon guys, don't pick on him. We all have things we're noobish about. For example, I want to set up a static IP address for BT but haven't been able to figure it out for weeks.

LMAO!! :D

Welcome to MacRumors newnarg! :D

Fortunately, you should be able to set up your own wireless connection, I would suggest a strong wireless router so that you can get the best range on your iPod touch depending on the size of your ranch.

You dont need to pay monthly for it, you just buy some hardware.

Good Luck!
