Does anyone know if it's possible to connect an iPod touch to a wireless network shared through your computer? I know how to share the network connection but need to know whether the iPod find the network and connect to the internet.

The scenario is:

  1. A laptop with a wired connection running Windows Vista
  2. An iPod touch needing internet access
  3. No option to purchase a wireless router

Yep, I do this all the time at work.

Set up an ad-hoc network on Windows.

Choose the network on the iPod.

FYI I managed to get hold on one to test and can verify that this works. Thanks! – Jonny Aug 26 '09 at 23:37
