Re: CAN NOT CONNECT TO THE INTERNET WITH MY IPOD TOUCH.
I am not an expert but after hours of frustration, I finally selected "forget this network" and returned to the previous menu where I selected "ask to join network" and reentered all my information manually, SSID and password. It's worked for me ever since. Good luck.

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!

<p>Netgear WNR2000, a wireless-N router, you can connect to the
Internet without the hassle of cables. IPod touch supports Wi-Fi (wireless)
connections. If you're within range of the router, you can connect to the
wireless network. Once connected, enjoy a fast transfer speeds that allow you
to quickly scroll pages and run the programs enabled network. <br />
<p>1. Connect the iPod Touch. Tap Settings on the Home screen
settings of media player to start. <br />
<p>2. Scroll through the settings when you come to "Wi-Fi,
tap to activate the feature. IPod touch detects networks in range. <br />
<p>3. Select the Netgear WNR2000 Wi-Fi network can include the
name has been set, so it helps to know the name. If a secure network, enter the
password. If you do not know the password, your iPod Touch cannot connect to
the network. Once selected, your iPod automatically connect to the network. The
Wi-Fi icon in the status bar at the top. <br />
<p>4. Select "ON" next "Ask to Join" if you
want your iPod touch to ask you to connect to wireless networks within range. <br />
Your router is blocking the iPod Touch from using the wireless. Go into your router settings (depends on your router) and find the security or firewall for the wireless page. You will need to enter in the MAC address of the iPod Touch (found in Settings>General>About - it is labeled as Wi-Fi address).
If you are broadcasting your own wireless connection and it still isn't working, try resetting the router.
If you are just try to snag an internet connection out of the air and expect it to always work, you're in for a surprise. Someone has to broadcast the wireless signal for your iPod to have a connection. It costs them money, and if they're like me, they eventually notice when someone is snagging on their connection and taking up bandwidth. Usually it's only a matter of time before a 'paying' customer realizes this and secures the connection so that users with wireless devices such as your iPod) can no longer steal the connection for free.
If this is the case, you might want to consider buying a wireless router and broadcasting your own connection, but make sure that you set a password and keep it secure so that it stays fast, otherwise people will take advantage of it and slow you down.
You need any router or wireless access point to conenct your ipod touch to the internet or even your home network.
These days most wired routers will also have the option of wireless. You can check this by entering the routers configuration page. Usually by typing in 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. Or more simply, google you wired router model to check.
Bluetooth is not currently available for connection in the ipod touch or iphone. The iphone supports it, but for bluetooth headsets. Therefore, regardless of the fact that your mac pro (very nice computer by the way) can support it, your ipod touch can't take advantage of other bluetooth devices.
From what it sounds like, you are working in a Windows environment. What you are trying to do is bridge your wireless ad-hoc network with your wired network connection. Windows does not support this method of connection even though they have the option for "allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection". That would only work if you had two ethernet cards in your system, and that option bridges one ethernet port with the other. It doesn't support bridging to your wireless adapter.
Most laptop wireless cards do not support an "infrastructure" mode, which would turn your notebook into a mobile router. Instead they create an ad-hoc network completely separate from your wired network. There are some commercial pieces of software that can bridge the two, though I've never been able to make them work.
The easiest route would be to go to Target or a local electronic store and pick up a wireless router. You would take the ethernet connection from your laptop and attach it to the router. Then your laptop and iPod would both connect to the internet through the router.
