    well, it turned out that my motherboard antenna wasnt sending a proper signal... with other connections it does work, like starbucks and stuff, or a normal house wifi connection. Try with other connections.

Don't know if this will work with this router, but witth my Orange router, I had exactly the same. I had to press a "pairing" button on the router when it was trying to connect to my Archos, and then it connected almost straight away. Otherwise, I could not connect.

I am seeking the WAP code so I can can connect the unit via wifi to the internet


Network security key
Some later model wireless routers have the Password (ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router and this information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adapters in your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit your requirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorized access.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cable from your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computer and enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login and password and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID and Encryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 to generate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to 63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born in January 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops can communicate with your wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

Cannot connect apple touch ipod to my bt broadband think


go into your settings and wifi
click on your network and delete your passcode and enter your wep key which is on your wireless router.
look at the label and find the wep key.

if this doesn;t work, delete your wireless association completely and add it again as a new wireless.
your passcode for wireless is not your phone passcode it is strictly to allow entry into the wireless network,

Wifi connection to BT Home Hub problems


Make sure you do not have any third party software running in your taskbar that deals with wifi connection if your trying to use the windows connection. this is what i do. its better, and more simple. Home Hub does not work well with non BT software. If your not sure, turn any wifi connection software off. i.e if any came with your wifi device. and then click on the start button. and click connect to on the right lower side of the start menu. You can use almost any wifi device with these devices. your best bet would be to let windows try to connect to your home hub. Also are you typing in your WEP key. correctly. How far away from the hub is the wifi device. Is windows wireless zero configuration off in system services. unliekly. but worth a look. I have had a home hub for three years and i have to admit they are a nuisence. The BT Voyager wifi works ver well. just in case there is some kind of incompatibility with your device, i highly doubt it though. Good Luck.

Wi-fi connection


I had exactly the same problem with a brand new 3rd gen iTouch. It showed it was connected to the network but wouldn't access anything (invalid argument etc). I tried everything but no joy. Eventually I fixed it by changing the router's encryption from WEP to WPA2-PSK. Fixed it like magic. Where there had been no router or DNA data before, they were suddenly filled in. The key was different but was still on the bottom of the router. I had to re-enter the key on my wireless laptop2_bing.gif but that was a small price.

You can get into the router set-up page through your web browser. I found a guide on You Tube.

Good luck!

Unable to connect to wifi network on ipod 2g touch


You must have your wireless profile's name and passkey.  Try resetting your router, then make sure you create a new profile for your desktop and take note of the details (ie name, WEP/WPA Key)  Should work just fine if you follow the steps.

Ipod wont hook up to wi-fi


hi ericjpratt. did u input the WEP key into your ipod? if you didnt follow these steps (if u have then u better hope your ipod has a warranty): click on settings, click on wifi connection and choose whichever one is your connection (make sure your near to your computer and have a router so that your wifi can extend to more than 1 foot. and then enter your WEP key. after that return to the screen where you chose your network eg. bigpond231 and then set "ask to join network" as off
and thats all if it didnt work then ur screwed :P anyway, good luck with your ipod i know what it must feel like... that happened to mine as well until a few days ago.

I Cannot connect My Ipod Touch to my Tiscali Router


When you say password for your broadband PC Connection, do you mean WEP on the router?

If you have WEP enabled on your router, then this is the "password" that the iPod Touch is referring to when setting up the WiFi connection on the Touch.

If you are trying to use the password that you have on your PC, as in the Windows Login password, this is not going to work.

Cannot connect to network with WEP key encryption


It will not connect to a wireless network with WEP. it supports only the latest encryption. Try changing the encreption on your router to WPA or WPA2

Archos 704 WPA/WEP


The WEP or WPA is the password to get onto the network. Think of the router as the doorman. The printer needs to get into the club so it needs the password otherwise it can't get access.

The WEP key and WPA passphrase are obtained from the wireless router or access point using the embedded web server on the router. See the documentation provided with your router to see how to access this information. Some routers provide more than one WEP key. Use the first WEP key if this is the case.
