Question about Apple iPod touch

Ipod touch has low wifi signal and will not assign an IP

Hi everyone, I am having a problem with my ipod touch, my Wifi signal is very low and the only way I can get it to connect is if I have it sitting directly ontop of my router and it works, if I'm more than 2" away from it then it drops the connection. or it will connect but not assign an IP so i can't browse.
I have tried with different router brands, at different places. I have reset the network settings, I have upgraded to the latest firmware (2.0.1 to 2.2). I have done a master reset which erased all the data and still the same thing.

This is my 2nd ipod touch, my last one was a 8GB and the wifi worked great so I have tested my network with that one and it's not the problem.. the problem is with the ipod it's self.

I have no problem taking it apart but before I do I'm just wondering if it's a common problem for the internal antena to become disconnected somehow? possibly from a drop.. (last owner could have done it) it's been like this from day one so i got a pretty good deal on it.

Sometimes, usually happens when it's put together wrong though; happens sometimes. Be carefully taking it apart, the iPod Touch is snapped together, so be patient with it.

Do i have to have a router to connect to belkin wifi on my ipod touch?


Yes you need wireless router to use wifi in ipod touch or on laptop.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method.
Then click on wireless and enable it.
. Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

IPod touch Wifi problem. I got a new iPod touch 4g and my dad got new pocket wifi so I tried to connect my iPod to the internet and it would work for about five minutes but then it would disconnect...


hi this sounds like the pocket wifi firewall or push is stopping you from connecting, it will show connection when the password is put in correctly, but unless your either ip, or mac address is registered with the unit it will not let you connect to the net, you will have to see if there is a start ip and an end ip address in the wifi unit, as this might have restrictions to ip address numbers..for example..wifi ip start address might be 192.168.0.1 and wifi end address might be 192.168.0.4 where as your ipod might have an ip address of 192.168.0.7 ( just an example ) so even though the password is ok, it will let you connect for that few seconds, as it has verified the password and is correct, but the ip handling has not allowed you access and the firewall then steps in and blocks you.... hope this helps

Just bought one from my freind ,how do i get the internet working on it


iPod touch gets its internet from WiFi signal that it captures. If you don't have WiFi around you, you will not be able to connect to the internet.

To see if there are available WiFi connections around you, here's what you gotta do:
>on your iPod touch screen, go to Settings
>once the Settings window opens, you'll see Wi-Fi next to Airplane Mode (from the top). If your current not connected to any WiFi signal, it should say not connected beside it.
>tap on Wi-Fi and choose from the available networks on the list, but make sure that Wi-Fi is turned ON, first. If in case there's no WiFi signal around you, you still won't be able to browse the web.
>tap on any network from the list. often times, WiFi signals are secured, which means you should know the password to be able to connect, otherwise, you'll still get nothing.
you'll know that you're already connected when there's a check symbol on the left side of the network that you've just selected, and also, the WiFi symbol appears beside your carrier name.

Once you're connected, just exit the Settings window and go to Safari to browse the web.

Ipod toucch to wifi it says connected but it wont....


The IP address is auto assigned. If you're having trouble with connecting on it, Try disconnecting it from the internet, then reconnecting after a minute or two, it may fix your problem.

I have a new 32 gb iPod Touch and I can't figure out how to connect to any open wifi in my neighborhood. I do not have wifi hooked up to my home computer. I thought you connect to a wifi connection...


go to settings and tap on "wifi" there you can change the settings for the wifi.
P.S. The ipod touch does connect automatically you need to turn it on in the wifi settings

Wifi grey area


Here is a way that solved the problem for me.
Downgrade the ipod touch to firmware 1.1.4. You have to put your ipod into DFU mode ('not recovery mode) and you have to have an itunes version that supports this old firmware. 7.5 oder 7.7 i think.
to load your own firmware you simply hold the shift-button while you push the restore button.

After you have firmware 1.1.4 on your ipod touch, download the jailbreaker "Ziphone". This programm has the option to fix the "no Wifi" problem. Look in the advanced options.
In my case, this was the only thing that solved the problem. I tried restoring it often but nothing worked.
After Ziphone fixed your Problem, you can update the Touch to the latest firmware. Wifi was still working, at least for me

I cannot connect wifi on my ipod touch


it probably cant connect to the dns server of the wifi.
check the numbers of the dns server the college uses for wifi, program them into your ipod(sometimes 'detect automatic' doesnt work on public wifi), then it should be able to connect.
good luck.........Gilbert.

Do i need to be in a wifi area to get wifi on my ipod touch?


Yes, you definitely need to be in range of a Wireless router. I wish Wi-Fi was like phone service where you can get it anywhere you go, but that's not the case.

8gb ipod touch will not connect to internet when i have a full wi


Hi there,

You shouldn't need to change the Address or DNS.

On your wireless router, make sure of your Firewall settings (if there is any form of blocking) and it's security settings (eg, network name, password and security type etc). Once you are sure of it's settings, on the iPod go to Settings, then Wifi. In there turn off then on wifi. Allow it to scan then if it comes up with your network, select it then type in the password when requested and tap Join. If it doesn't show you need to enter it manually. To do this tap on Other then type in the Network name. It should now request a password (if one is set) and you are then connected indicated by the wifi logo in the status bar.

For more info refer to your ipod touch manual pages 90-91.

All the best.
