Question about Apple iPod touch

Having Trouble Connecting iPod Touch to Airtunes Network

I have a belkin wireless n router connected to apple airtunes to create a wireless network through airtunes. I connect my Mac Powerbook G4 to my apple network with no issues. I recently purchased the iPod Touch 8GB and I cannot connect to the Apple Network. I use a WPA encryption. The iPod picks up the network when scanning for networks, but after entering the correct PW and attempting to join I get the following error prompt..."Unable to join the network (apple network name)". I have looked at several message boards and cannot find any support. One solution was to enter a 128 bit hex key as the PW which the airtunes admin utility displays. I attempted to join the network using that PW without success.
Please help.

How can i have an internet connection with my itouch gadget thru belkin router? thank you.

  • Touch the "Settings" icon on the home screen of the iPod touch.

  • 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 (Belkin something). 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.

    Solved: Belkin G+ Mimo Wireless Router Issue Hi All

    Ever since i bought this Belkin G+ Mimo Router, i've been having this problem, but couldn't find the time to take it back (or too lazy, whatever). :P

    Trouble is, frequently when surfing the net, the router disconnects, for no reason. It happens almost everytime i go on youtube, and just some random sites i go on, will cause the router to disconnect. Can't seem to find the answer anywhere else, so i took it upon myself to register and ask you guys. Have no clue what the problem is, was thinking maybe a port issue, but since the router is uPnP i don't see how, besides, could that even cause it to disconnect? Anyway, any help is appreciated.

    Why doesnt my ipod touch connect to my belkin54g network

    Go in to setting on your ipod and in setting select connection,then wifi.At there the ipod will ask you for the router password o keys.

    If you are having problems connecting either your iPhone ® or your iPod Touch ® to your wireless router please ensure that the routers wireless name (SSID) contains no spaces.

    Why does my wireless internet only work when the network is not locked? does this mean my internet is not secure?

    By not "locked" I assume you mean with security enabled. All clients connecting to your wireless access device must use the same credentials for security as your access device. Otherwise your clients will pick up and connect to any network that is unsecure.

    Connecting Ipod touch 8(GB) to Wi-fi

    I want to tell you that there might be two problems for your concern.

    1. Your router is not working properly
    2. Your Ipod Touch is not working properly

    But it might be possible that both devices working fine just the compatibility issue.

    First of all i can suggest you that you can upgrade the firmware for your router.

    Then you can reconfigure your wireless setting on your router.

    Then tried to put static ip on your ipod touch in the network setting option

    IP address:
    Subnet Mask:
    Default Gateway:

    Primary DNS:
    Secondary DNS:

    Then tried again to connect wirelessly with your ipod touch make sure you dont required to add mac address for you ipod touch and also you can click on the option called "Wireless Access Point"

    Then you can see the option " Turn Access Control On" you can uncheck this option.

    Try again i believe that will resolve your concern.

    Thanks & Regards
