Connecting Ipod touch 8(GB) to Wi-fi

I have an ipod touch and a DG834G router, my ISP is AOL and I can't connect the ipod to AOL via the wireless connection. Everytime I enter the network settings manually the device says ( Unable to connect to network). Can somebody possibly offer a solution please!!!!!!!?????? I've eneetered the original network settings and followed solutions on the Apple website, ive even phoned Apple customer support and (after1.5hrs) they still couldn't figure out what the problem is.
I've entered the mac address in the routers allowed list, i've entered every IP address, subnet mask, router address and DNS server addresses, and no luck. Just bought my Apple IPod Touch (8GB). Was trying to connect to my own wifi connection. I was using D-Link DSL2640T Wireless Router.I do exactly the same as how i connect my Mac Book. Search network and key in WEP password. It shows connection has established and there is IP address too. But still i could not use safari , and the pop up menu says that Cannot Open Page :  Safari cannot open the page because it is not connected to the Internet.

Connect motorola modemsbSB6121 to Belink N600 wireless router with out losing internet signal

Step one turn on PC directly connected to ModemsbSB6121 without Wi FI router being involved.
Step two go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step three note IP address of default gateway and ip address issued to P.C.
Step four type in default gateway address into browser and log into Modem.
Step five look for DHCP Server and allocate IP addresses from at least 50 for example starting ip lease ending ip lease
Step six connect Wi Router to P.C. via ethernet cable only - remove ModemSB6121
Step Seven shutdown and restart p.c
Step Eight go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step Nine note IP address of default gateway and ip address issued to P.C.
Step Ten type in default gateway address into browser and log into Wi Fi Router
Step Eleven Change IP address on Router to 2 as example (it has to match in that modem device would have been 192,168.0.1)
(if it was make wi fi make sure subnet mask is the same like
Step twelve Change DHCP Server to off
Step Thirteen may need to set default gateway to MODEM IP address for example
Step Fourteen plug modem router into Wi Fi router may need to plug into WAN port on WI FI router .
Step Fifteen shutdown and Restart Computer
Step Sixteen go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step Seventeen type in PING (if this is modem IP address and default gateway IP addess)
All this above is to avoid IP address conflicts or mismatching
Subnet mask should be
either it uses or it uses make sure Wi FI router is set to different address to Modem Router.
I suspect either a clash occurs or your P.C gets a different IP range from ther WI FI DHCP server.
Happy troubleshooting !

How do i find the wifi password for my ipod touch

Step 1:

The wifi password is on your wifi router, hopefully someone wrote it down and taped it to your router, if not you need to loginto your router to find out what it is.
Once you have the password:

Step 2:

On your ipod touch

Verify Wi-Fi is enabled and that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network.

Tap Settings > Wi-Fi. If Wi-Fi is off, turn it on by tapping the on/off icon.

Available Wi-Fi networks appears under "Choose a Network..."

Locate and tap the Wi-Fi network you want to join then enter your password

Wps light blinking

wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a standard for easy and secure wireless network set up and connections. Some of NETGEAR's products use the name Push 'n' Connect for WPS. To use WPS, your product must support WPS and be compatible with WPA security. WPS can automatically set up a random network name (SSID) and strong WPA wireless security for wireless routers, access points, computers, adapters, Wi-Fi phones, and other electronic devices. WPS lets you use a push button or enter a personal identification number (PIN) instead of manually entering a network name (SSID) and password:
  • Push button. The WPS button is either on the product or a clickable button on a wizard or utility screen.

You have to unplug the modem and then unplug the router then power up the modem and wait tell it is all booted up and then power the router on. If that does not work make sure your modem is working ok and the lights are green.If the modem is ok you could try running the router setup again too.

Let me clear up a little confusion. You don't have wi-fi on your account, you have Internet access. Wi-fi is not something that you subscribe to or purchase separately. Wi-fi (wireless) access is provided by a router that allows the Internet connection you pay for to be shared by several computers. The typical router has both wired connections (usually 4 of them) for computers that don't have wireless capability, and acts as the access point for your wireless network.

Your modem is the device that connects you to the Internet through your service provider (ISP). Most ISPs are supplying a combination modem/router for their customers since so many people want wireless access in their homes. If you have one of these, you actually have wireless capability already. But your modem might be an older type, supplying a single wired connection for one computer only. You didn't give the model number of your Westell modem so I can't tell you what you have, but you can tell by looking at it.

A single-connection DSL modem will have only two ports. One is the connection to the DSL phone line, and is a standard-size phone jack labeled "DSL". The other is the network cable connection to your computer, usually labeled "COMPUTER", "LAN" (short for Local Area Network), or "ETHERNET" which is the type of cable used. If this describes your modem, you will need to provide your own wireless router to make your new wireless netbook work.

On the other hand, a combination modem/router will have the DSL connection jack and 4 connectors for computers. It may also have an antenna for the wireless function, but some newer models have internal antennas. If you have one of these, you already have wi-fi capability. You will probably need to set up your network so that your netbook can use it.

There is plenty of information available about how to install a wireless router if you don't have one already. In fact, almost every one now comes with an installation CD that will guide you through all the steps. They aren't expensive and are for sale almost everywhere that sells electronics (office places, Radio Shack, retailers like Wal-Mart, etc.). If you already have the combination device, you can call your ISP customer service for help in setting up your network, or find the information on their website.

So yes, the Sylvania netbook will work in your home, although you may need to do a little work first. But it's really pretty simple, and you'll have that computer online without wires in no time.

First to clarify; is this a WIRELESS ROUTER?
If it is OK, there are also LAN/ethernet outputs on it as well.
DESKTOP COMPUTERS do not typically contain Wi-Fi apadters or 'antenna', these are in most all laptops made these days.
If you have a wireless Wi-Fi Router then it should be fairly straitforward to connect laptops (Start Menu>Connect To, in Windows)
You may have to either HARD WIRE (ethernet line) or buy an internal Wi-Fi or USB Wi-Fi Adapter/antenna. If it's a fairly recent wireless router this becomes fairly straight forward after that.
