Solved How to get my iPod to send out wifi

Specs: Windows ME
I have a jailbroken ipod touch 2nd gen. If my I pod has wifi, is there a way my ipod can become a hot spot it self? Like can I log into a wifi network and then be my own "router" as long as I am connected to that network? Please help. Thanks.

What would be the point of that? If your next to a device sending out a Wi-Fi signal, then why would you need your iPod to re-transmit it?

Usually devices take a 3G/4G signal and create a Wi-Fi hotspot.

The point? What if the signal want 200 ft. lets say the signal is 150 ft. to my right. My friend is 150 to my left. He can’t get the signal I am getting because he is 300 ft. away from it. But it I can send wifi out 200 ft. then he can get wifi. That’s the point. Maybe I should rephrase my question to “How can I get my iPod to be a wifi signal booster?” So do you know how I can?

Ok, so you want to use it a a repeater. Off hand I don't think you can.

And when you do use the i devices to create a hotspot (from a 3g/4g signal), the transmitter is very low power. You have to be within 5-10 feet of them to get a good signal.

Well like I said, even if you could do it, the farthest your going to be able to extend the signal is another 5 to 10 feet at best. The devices have a very low powered transmitter.

Do you have a specific location you are trying to extend? They do make repeater and extender devices that will do what you want.

The reason why I want to be able to “resend” the wifi signal is because I have a jailbroken ipod and I can get unlocked wifi farther than my friend. Sins I have the cydia wifi booster app I can get the wifi and he can’t. Since he would be standing next to me he could get the signal if I could “resend” it. Then he could get wifi too. That’s why I want to do it.
