Currently Being ModeratedAug 6, 2008 12:55 PM (in response to FrankBlack)are you asking if you can get internet via USB on a computer with internet? If so, the answer is no. Unfortunately, the only way to have internet with the iPod Touch is to use Wi-Fi.

I still don't have a wireless connection
What's wrong with using the wifi on either your Macbook or your PowerBook?
You have those connected to the internet via ethernet, right?
Create a wifi network with either of those, and have at it.
System prefs -> Sharing.
Share the ethernet internet connection with users on the Airport.
See this -> Sharing your Internet connection
Also, any reason you still on 10.4.7 as shown in your signature?iMac G5 (Rev B) ALS - 2 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.11), silver mini, blue mini, silver shuffle
Currently Being ModeratedAug 6, 2008 4:45 PM (in response to Chris CA)Hi Chris,
You got me on a track here ... I can activate the Airport in ~SysPrefs ... but my cable connection is not allowing me to share ... I guess.... unless there are workarounds ...
169.254.84.125 IP address on the Ipod Touch ... and that's not a good sign ...
I have Internetaccess for 2 computers ... but the second one I use for my parallels connection ...
Thx for the tip anyway ...MacBookPro 17" 2,16Ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

Currently Being ModeratedAug 7, 2008 5:10 PM (in response to Chris CA)After some internet search .. I found the solution and it works
go to this link
follow steps 1 and 2 ( step 3 is for connection to Wii )
Put the Terminal result --> SERVER 195.xxx.xxx.x#xx DHCP/DNS
Put an optional password if you desire and .... you can use your Ipod Touch /Iphone without having a airport extreme unit ....
So finally I can practice/make some presets on Safari/Maps(Great app)/etc a bit on my Ipod Touch instead of trying to get on line somewhere on the road with no success....MacBookPro 17" 2,16Ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
