Question about Apple iPod touch
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!
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
