    is your network at home password protected?
    If so, you will have to manually set that or at least enter the password on the connect screen

SOURCE: lost password on my ipod touch 16gb

The only way to unlock any ipod with out the password is to restore it using itunes. In case you are unfamiliar with how to do a restore on your ipod touch i have posted a step by step below. Take care :)

Last Modified: February 16, 2009 Article: HT1414 Old Article: 305744 Using the Restore function for your iPhone or iPod touch is part of standard troubleshooting procedure. Restoring your device will erase all data from your iPhone or iPod touch, including songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPhone or iPod touch settings are restored to their factory condition.
Whenever you restore your iPhone or iPod touch, Apple highly recommends that you perform a sync prior to restoring in order to back up any changes since your last sync. If you have movie rentals on the device, see this document before restoring.
Use the following steps to restore your iPhone or iPod touch:
Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update. Connect your iPhone or iPod touch to your computer. Select your iPhone or iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices. Select the Summary tab. Select the Restore option. When prompted to back up your iPhone or iPod touch's settings before restoring, select the Back Up option (as seen in the image below). If have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.
Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you (As long as you've backed up your device, you should not have to worry about restoring your phone).
Once the restore process has completed the iPhone or iPod touch restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up

SOURCE: My ipod touch is connected but won't use the internet.

Your router is blocking the iPod Touch from using the wireless.  Go into your router settings (depends on your router) and find the security or firewall for the wireless page.  You will need to enter in the MAC address of the iPod Touch (found in Settings>General>About - it is labeled as Wi-Fi address).

How can i update my iPod model # MC086LL


The iPod touch is not only a music player, but also your gateway to the world via the Internet. In order to connect to the iTunes music store and use the email and web-browsing features of your iPod touch, you must first connect to a wireless network.

Touch the "Settings" icon on the home screen of the iPod touch. The iPod does not require you to press down very hard to select an icon. Using your finger, lightly tap the application you want to activate it. Choose the Wi-Fi setting and turn it on. You may need to wait a moment while the device locates available networks. Select the wireless network you want to connect to. You may have more than one option based on your location. If you are prompted for a password, enter it and touch "Join." Opt to have your iPod alert you when there is a new network you can join. This can be useful if you are no longer in range of a network you have previously used. To receive these messages, turn on the "Ask to Join Networks" feature. Tell the iPod touch to "forget" a wireless network that you no longer want to use, so it will not automatically try to connect you. Under the Wi-Fi settings, tap the ">" button next to the network you want to delete and then touch "Forget this network." Expect that some wireless networks detected by your iPod touch will ask you to sign up for a fee-based service. If this is acceptable to you, open up the Safari application from the home screen. You will be taken to a website that explains the terms of service and accepts credit card payments for wireless Internet access.
When the iPod touch was introduced in 2007, it quickly became one of the best-selling portable music players on the market. What separated the iPod touch from its competitors was its ability to access the Internet through Wi-Fi networks. If you're ready to surf the web and send e-mail with your new iPod touch, it's easy to get connected. Just a few taps, and you'll be on your way.

Tap the "Settings" icon on your iPod touch's home screen. Tap the arrow on the far right of the "Wi-Fi" bar on the "Settings" screen. Move the slider on the "Wi-Fi" bar to the "On" position. Move the slider on the "Ask to Join Networks" bar to the "On" position if you wish to be notified before your iPod touch connects to a new network. Moving the slider to the "Off" position means you must select a Wi-Fi network manually before your iPod touch will connect. Press the "Home" button to return to your iPod touch's home screen. You will see the Wi-Fi icon appear in the top left corner of your screen with up to four bars illuminated to indicate that Wi-Fi is available and to show its signal strength. iPod touch Support

How to Connect my Apple iPod Touch 8 GB to Internet


<p>Apple iPod touch is a touch screen version of its popular iPod device, similar in appearance and function of the iPhone. Like the iPhone, iPod touch is able to access the Internet, although by different means. While the iPhone usually connect to the Internet via a wireless network operator's mobile data, the only way to connect to the Internet in an 8 GB iPod Touch is the device to use built-in wireless adapter. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Get references to a wireless network nearby, if you are not home or do not have access to a public network without a password. If you're in a cafe, for example, ask the cashier to use the network password and you should use to connect. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Tap your iPod Touch "Settings" icon and "Wi-Fi." If a blue button "off" appears next to the Wi-Fi, tap it on the wireless adapter to connect the device. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Scroll through the list of wireless networks will appear, and then tap corresponding to your network. Enter a password - if the network requires - and tap "Connect" to your connection to the Internet iPod touch 8 GB. <br />

    Itouch connects to the internet everywhere except home


    This is due to your router, not your iPod. I've had to reset the router several times in s row before I could connect to the internet. I'm not sure why the third time worked when the first two didn't. My suggestion is to keep trying repeatedly.

    You can buy a wireless router for $50 to $100 these days. That really your only option unless you can talk a neighbor into sharing.

    Wifi with itouch 32 gb


    I bought my wife and I an IPhone about a month ago and had the same question. In the top left corner you will see 3 wave lines when you are connected to a wireless network. When they are shaded its weak and when they're lit up it's strong. If you bought the 3G when you click on safari it should say in the top left corner 3G. If it doesn't work, download ITunes for free on their website and run some updates for your phone. It's all free just kind of time consuming.

    Try going into your internet settings where you can choose to turn on or off the wireless connection which will enable your 3G (or 2G).

    Have fun with your new phone!
