I only have dial up internet access at home. I'd like to connect to the internet on my laptop and then use that connection for my iPod through Internet Connection Sharing. I don't have a router. I'm just trying to do an Ad Hod network from WinXP to iPod. Is that possible? Is there an easier way to do this?

The iPod touch requires a WiFi access point. If you don't have a WiFi router, you won't be able to do it.

UPDATE: If you're using a laptop and it has WiFi, you could share your dial-up connection that way. Here is a tutorial.

Doesn't seem to work for me, maybe because I'm using the PeoplePC dialer? – Homer Aug 3 '10 at 14:35
