I Cannot connect My Ipod Touch to my Tiscali Router
The router is a Simens Gigaset SE587 and I am sure you should be able to connect up to 4 devices to this. I only have my Laptop running off of it.
Anyway's my IPOD finds the Tiscali network no problems, and then asks for the password, which I assume is the same password as I use for my broadband PC connection. However when typing this in, it refuses connection.
I would appreciate any help you can offer?
Re: I Cannot connect My Ipod Touch to my Tiscali Router
The best way to fix the problem is by going into the router interface n getting da wireless encrytpion key(password) from the same.
For a Siemens Gigaset router enter 192.168.1.1 in da address bar of your browser e.g. IE.
You will get to the DSL status windows. Click wireless on the top(next to setup) and then click on wireless security on the left.Here you will get da required info abt the wireless encryption type and da encryption key(password)
It can either be WEP or WPA encryption.Just make a note of the key and enter the same on da Ipod/PDA/Iphone when it demands for da network key or passpharase.you should now be able 2 connect without any problems.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

What i would suggest is either using the suggested routers which are suggested for the reason of they are know to connect with little error. Other routers conduct themselfs differently and cause errors. What you might try is updating your router and drivers on your computer. This should update your router to the best know configuration and allow the smoothest opperations. If this doesn't answer your problem please post again.
Please post what you do and how you did it.
I look forward to your posts.
If this is router is gifted to you by a friend of yours who is from UK, Please check if this is locked. Most of the times these would be locked by the ISP. This is a router provide by tiscali UK. Please select the dialing number to 0,38 this is the dialing code for india.
If you use this should work and use 192.168.1.1 as default DNS.
I have solved my problem, after researching various messageboards yesterday to try and discover why my Siemens Tiscali router didn't work. I'm going to send it back and go with another company!
It seems there has been a lot of debate on these messageboards about Tiscali and/or Siemens products and it now seems also that no one would recommend them. I hereby add my name to that list.
Go into 'control panel' then 'network connections' and right click on your 'local area connection'. Select 'internet protocol' at the bottom of the list and click on 'properties'. Ensure that 'Obtain an IP address automatically' is selected. Run through the installation disk again and my guess is it will work. Despite this being relatively simple no one at tiscali suggested this over the course of 2 weeks which I found astonishing.
The Default gateway for Siemens Gigaset SE587 is 192.168.1.1. Open Internet Explorer and put the def gateway in the browser.
The default username and password for siemns router is admin.
Click on Setup Tab than Basic Setup on left hand side. Update the details as folloing- Use – Tiscali data PPPoA Interface PVC Selection – Tiscali data PPPoA Authentication – Auto User Name - Tiscali u/n Password - Tiscali password PPPoA Connection Mode- Always On NAT - ON
And click on save settings. To confirm if the customer is connected, check the status of Online light – which should be green. Alternatively click on status (On top) to check internet status to confirm connection.
Setting Up Wireless connection – Click on da wireless tab on the top.
Ensure that the Auto channel is disabled and the wireless channel is 11, wireless n/w is Enabled and mode is Mixed.
To secure the wireless connection – Click on Wireless Security option on left hand side If you want the Security mode as WPA than select the wireless security mode, as WPA and enter WPA Shared key which would be on the base ofthe router. Again click on save settings.
Try connecting to the wireless network again and I m sure it should work..... lemme know if it does.
