Problems connecting to internet on new apple itouch

New apple itouch - seems to be picking up router i.e. it comes up with 'NETGEAR' and asks for password - put in the password but then nothing happens. I can get to a screen which asks for all sorts of information ip addresses, etc but I have no idea what it is talking about. I seem to be going round in circles looking at all different things but all the apple information is really unhelpful - i really didn't think it would be this difficult and that you would have to be a technical expert!! Any help and advise would be appreciated before it gets thrown through the window!

Hi Kath,

First, it's probably a good idea for you to change the network name from 'NETGEAR' as it could conflict with any other devices nearby. Also change the password from the routers default.
Don't worry about ip addresses and the like. all that is sorted automatically.
Just go to the home screen, then settings, then Wifi, turn off then on the wifi and wait for it to show up. If it does then select it, type in the password and tap Join.
If it doesn't show up or connect then tap Other and enter the network name. If the network requires a password, tap Security, tap the type of security the network uses, and enter the password.
If none of that works do a restore and software update as described on page 111 of the user guide (also available from http://support.apple.com/manuals/#ipodtouch)

All the best

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.

Itouch wont recognize wifi from my linksys router


Enable "SSID Broadcast" to get network to appear on iTouch. Also note that your "password" to modify router settings is not the same as your security (or WEP, WPA) "key".

I would turn your itouch on and tap the top bar where the battery and signal show.
a screen will pop down and show your wireless connection. tap it ans check your settings.
make sure you renew lease on your wireless and use the wep code which is on the label of your wireless router.
you should have signal now

good luck

Itouch won't recognize my internet connection


You can not access the internet through the usb cable supplied with your ipod. you will need to purchase a wireless router and set up a home network.

Apple ipod itouch connection to wireless internet


don't let the iTouch connect to the wi-fi network it detected automatically - try setting up a new wi-fi network from scratch.
the setup screens will ask for network name (the SSID) the security protocol (probably WPA-PSK if you are having all this trouble) and the password (pre shared key)

should be all you need - good luck
