Yes you need wireless router to use wifi in ipod touch or on laptop. Connect
your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with
following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or
http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access
it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your
router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type
user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you
can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to
access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press
RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all
settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method.
Then click on wireless and enable it.
click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code
password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and
restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me
know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
To connect to the internet using wifi on the iPod touch, just follow the following steps: Firstly, you should be in a wifi zone(an area where you can access wifi) or if you want to use it at your house with your residential internet connection, just get yourself a wifi router(shouldn’t cost more than $50-60) and configure it with your residential internet
Once you are in a wifi zone, on your iPod touch, go to: Settings > Wifi > Turn your wifi ON > Select a wifi network > Key in the WEP(only if asked for) > Connect Once you’re done with this, you should get the IP settings and be able to surf the internet with no problem. Note: At times when you’re too far away from the wireless router or a big thick brick wall is separating you and the wifi router, your iPod might show the network as available and you would also be able to connect to it, but surfing the internet using it would become a problem. If this happens to you, don’t worry, just move closer to the wifi router and it shouldn’t pose any other problems. Happy Surfing!

Yes well IF you use two network cards, a WiFi Adapter & an Ethernet Adapter, you can do this, now with a WiFi adapter, as you say, What you do is connect to the internet on the PC, and "Share" the internet connection via the WiFi. You set up the WiFi as either an "Access Point" or a an "Ad Hoc" network, if you want to communicate with the "Other" PC's, and have then communicate with you, as well as access the Internet. So setup is simple, using the manufacturers DVD install the WiFi. card, then, Set it up as you wish, the PC's that connect should be in the same Workgroup, have sharing enabled and be passworded too then as said connect to the Internet and the "Other" pc's will be able to "Burrow" out through you Internet, through the ADSL Modem attached to the "Main" PC. Usually via the Ethernet port. You still need to set up an SSID and use a WAP/WEP key for security. on the WiFi card.
You must have your wireless profile's name and passkey. Try resetting your router, then make sure you create a new profile for your desktop and take note of the details (ie name, WEP/WPA Key) Should work just fine if you follow the steps.
did you setup a wireless network ? if you didnt go to control panal and then wireless network setup icon and follow instructions (select automatically provide network key option) then follow instructions and finish. once you did that, search through wifi on youf phone it should find your WNetwork and then connect and enjoy. if you want to use internet and have an ADSL modem, make sure that the modem is connected to the internet RJ45 plug on your router. and from router to PC.
Could you be more specific with what the issue is? Home Wifi? Router type? WEP or MAC filtering enabled? Did you already configure your Wifi settings:"If the network requires a password, tap Security, tap the type of security the network uses, and enter the password."
On your wireless router, make sure of your Firewall settings (if there is any form of blocking) and it's security settings (eg, network name, password and security type etc). Once you are sure of it's settings, on the iPod go to Settings, then Wifi. In there turn off then on wifi. Allow it to scan then if it comes up with your network, select it then type in the password when requested and tap Join. If it doesn't show you need to enter it manually. To do this tap on Other then type in the Network name. It should now request a password (if one is set) and you are then connected indicated by the wifi logo in the status bar.
For more info refer to your ipod touch manual pages 90-91.
I finally discovered the problem. I have a Linksys wireless
router, so when I tried to log on with my iTouch, I got the
message "Unable to join network "my network name" when
I typed in my password. One day, after many trys, I tried
typing in the network security key for my router, and Voila,
it worked. For some unknown reason (to me), the iTouch
recognizes the the network security key as the password.
