Tip & How-To about Apple iPod touch

How do I make my iPod Touch Connect to an Unsecure Network

Unsecured wireless Internet networks are available in many cafes and public spaces. An unsecured network is a wireless Internet connection that does not require a password. Use your iPod Touch Wi-Fi capability to connect to these networks and the Internet. Although excellent for surfing and email, avoid carrying out banking or financial information into an unsecured network, because there is a possibility that the signal is intercepted.


1. Open the Settings menu of your iPod Touch. It is the gray gear icon on the home screen.


2. Tap "WiFi" and move it to "On" if needed. If your Wi-Fi is already activated, you will see a pop-up asking if you have the unsecured network. Some companies, like Starbucks, have a "Log In" screen appears automatically.


3. Click "Yes" or "Join" for the network to automatically connect when prompted. The text may vary depending on the company, and you may need to read and agree to the terms and conditions statement. If no login screen appears, wait until you play for scanning available Wi-Fi signals. The list is displayed.


4. Select the network name you want to join the list. An unsecured network has a password, so you will not be asked to give.


5. Click on "automatic network in the future" when asked if you want to do.


6. Wait until the light of the Wi-Fi indicator in the upper left corner of the touch. This indicates that you are online and ready to ride.

did a factory restore, set up wireless, can browse internet via a neighbours unsecured network, but cant on mine. can log in to router wirelessly but thats it no internet


Dide you set up the wireless on your router? If you have done this and you have it set for None for security, you will also be "unsecured", BUT you still have a name (SSID) to identify your network. Check that your internet is set for "Private" access, if you are presented the option between Private and Public.

My Dell Inspiron 1525 works well finding unsecured


I don't know if you are using the standard Windows wireless LAN management, or the special DELL application for that. Anyway, try looking for a profile of that particular network in WLAN management (either Manage Wireless Networks in Windows networking, or something to that effect in in that DELL WLAN profile management) and deleting that profile, making it possible to search for it again "for the first time", so to say.

Excellent Wireless Network Connection, cannot access internet


The unsecure public network nay be using mac address filtering. In this case, the network will show as being unsecured, and will even allow you to connect in some cases, but then will not allow you to surf once connected.

laptop connect to public wireless network, but not internet


Sometimes they set the wireless to be unsecured. But you have to pay to use them.
Please check with the hotel staff about setting it to use.
If its completely free, double click the network icon on the task bar, click support tab and click repair.

laptop - internet


Yes, it is possible to connect to a wireless network outside of your home provided it is unsecured. That means you will not be asked for a password before you can wirelessly connect.

All you have to do is to search for an available network while in your car then connect to that network.
