Trouble connecting ipod touch to password protected wi-fi

Using Linksys wireless internet router in the house. Supports Dell lap top and Dell desk top. The ipod will connect to other wi-fi's that are not password protected but rejects the password for my protected wi-fi. I have confirmed that the password that I am trying is correct.

Is there a simple set up solution that I am missing?

Thank you in advance for your help.

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).
