iPod Touch and Laptop WiFi

Question: Is there a way to connect your ipod touch to the internet with a laptop with an aircard, either through Wi-Fi, bluetooth, or with a USB cable?

Yes somehow, But I have done like 8 different tutorials for the last 5 hours and none of them worked and now i wasted 5 hours of my life. Just go by a small travel router. Thats what I'm going to do.
