If you have a Mac this web site might help you out with the Internet Connection Sharing part, and this post on the Nintendo Forums called Conecting using Apple Share can help you get the IP Address that you need to enter into the Apple iPod Touch.

You can use any wireless router you want just as long as it's compatible with the iPod Touch.

Things you need:
1 computer that has access to the internet
1 wireless router
1 Apple iPod Touch or iPhone

Part 1 installing and/or enabling Internet Connection Sharing:

1. Go to a computer that has access to the internet

A computer with Windows 2000/Xp/Vista/7/8/10:

dial-up connection properties

2. Click Start, then Control Panel, then click Network Connections  (Right-Click the Network icon on your desktop, click properties then click Manage Network Connections to the left if you're using Vista or Change Adapter Settings if you're using Windows 7)  
3. Right click your dial-up connection, then click Properties and then click the Advanced tab (Sharing tab in Windows Vista and 7)
4. Click the Allow other users to connect through this computer's Internet connection checkbox
(Pick the Adapter you want to share your Internet connection with if it asks you. It's recommended to pick your Ethernet connection, usually Local Area Connection, since sharing to your wireless adapter will cause a bit of network delay)
5. Now connect to your dial-up connection

If you have connected to your dial-up connection before you enabled Internet Connection Sharing you have to disconnect and then reconnect again.








A Computer with Windows 98/98 SE/ME:

In Windows 98, 98 SE and Me you first have to install Internet connection Sharing. Add/Remove Programs

2. Click Start, then Settings, then Control Panel, then click the Add/Remove Programs icon, then Click the Windows Setup tab and then click Communications
3. Click the Internet Connection Sharing check box and then click ok to install it
4. Click Internet Explorer, then click Tools, then click Internet Options and then click the Connections tab
5. Click the Sharing button and then set the settings to share a dial-up connection and pick the Network adapter that you use to connect to your router and then click ok

In Windows 98, 98 SE and Me you might have to restart you computer after you install Internet Connection Sharing and after you set the settings for Internet Connection Sharing.


  Add/Remove Programs
















Step 2 Finding out the IP and other connection settings for the Apple iPod Touch:

1. Click Start, then Programs, then Accessories, then Command Prompt (MS-DOS Prompt in Windows 95,98,98se and me)
2. Type ipconfig and then keep the command prompt window on
3. If you are already connected to the internet through dial-up the ip address settings for the dial-up will show up, but you do not need this information so you can just ignore it.
4. Now keep the command prompt on the computer screen while you go to your App iPod Touch to enter the information, Remember to enter the Network adapter information and not the dial-up information, if you do enter the dial-up information it will not work

If you're using a Mac Open the Terminal app and type ifconfig en1, more info about using Apple Share with Nintendo Wifi Connection at Conecting using Apple Share posted on the Nintendo Forums.

5. Enter the same Subnet mask the same as the Network adapter.
6. Enter the IP address of the Network adapter as the Default Router and DNS.
7. Tap the Wi-Fi Networks button then tap your wireless router.IP Address
8. Now test the connection to see if it works by using an app that uses the Internet (such as Safari); if it works then you can now use the Internet on your iPod Touch and if it doesn't check to make sure if you put in the right information from the command prompt.
