I have two ipod touches. my first is the first gen 8g and it connected to the internet straight out the box. resently i got the second gen ipod touch 8g and it can't connect to the internet. i have the latest updates on the new ipod but nothing. i would like to know if i'm supposed to have some sort of wi fi plan and if so, why can i get on the net with my first gen itouch?
Usually, all iPods have a WiFi chip imbedded in the device so you have to pay nothing except for your currently active Wireless internet connection. Try checking your modem and making sure it's working for starters. If it is, then go on the iPod and go to settings, then internet connections. Select a valid internet connection and it should automatically connect, given a good signal strength.

The touch doesnt have a "key" this is the key from the Wi-fi spot you are trying to connect to. You will need the person that owns that wi-fi to provide that to you. The itouch simply connects to the wi-fi and uses it for internet. Hope this helps.
make sure you set up your access wep code or put the modems numbers in as the wep code. Try this, the itouch can find a wi-fi almost anywhere but to acces it it must be in the set up or alowed to use the wi-fi.
The easiest way to download to your iTouch is directly to your iTouch via the Apple Store. The Apple Store icon is already on your iTouch. Just make sure you are near an internet connection via Airport or Wi Fi. Click on "Download" on the selected app, and then wait a couple of seconds. Your iTouch will indicate when the download is done and the app is installed. You will see the new icon on your your screen page.
If you install from your computer, you will have to plug your iTouch into the computer and use the iTunes app to control what you download.
I hope that helps.
don't let the iTouch connect to the wi-fi network it detected automatically - try setting up a new wi-fi network from scratch.
the setup screens will ask for network name (the SSID) the security protocol (probably WPA-PSK if you are having all this trouble) and the password (pre shared key)
