    I am using a Wireless -G router, Just installed XP professional had a tough time setting back up using the router. Mac was working with the D-link but does not communicate with the router any longer. How do I get it to find the router? I know it's a simple process but I forgot the process with the mac.

Well if it is protected by WEP password you will need to enter $ first and then the password. But befor you do that up at the top on the right side there should be an icond with wirless signal clcik on it and slect your wirless network then enter the password if it is protected.

How to Unlock Addresses on your iPod Wi-Fi

<p>The iPod touch has a built-in wireless network adapter that allows you to join Wi-Fi networks; however, in some cases the wireless access point to implement a Wi-Fi network can be configured to an iPod touch join the network. You can configure the access point so that it no longer blocks the iPod from the wireless network. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Tap "Settings," then "General" on the iPod touch. Touch "About" then scroll down to "Wi-Fi address." Make a note of the 12-digit hexadecimal number listed under that title, which is the address of Medium Access Control encoded in iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect your computer to a numbered port on the back of the wireless router using an Ethernet cable. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Log on to the computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Start a Web browser on your computer. Directly to the router's configuration utility. The tool is listening on a specific web address that depends on the router. For example, if your router is a Linksys WRT54GS, navigate to the address "". <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Open the configuration menu for the MAC address filtering. For example, in a WRT54GS, click on "Wireless" then "Wireless MAC Filter". <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Remove the iPod's MAC address in the list of prohibitions aimed at the router's configuration utility. For example, in a WRT54GS, click "Edit MAC Filter List". A new window will appear. Double-click the field that the iPod has the MAC address, then press "Backspace" to make the contents of the field. Click "Save Settings". The window is closed. Click "Save Settings" in the main browser window. At this point, your router will be configured for iPod touch for the network. <br />

My ipod touch wnconnect 2 wifi can you help

Dear, I had the same problem with my iPod. It's because (I guess) your modem/router has MAC adress filtering. You need to get your ipod full acces through you MAC filtering. To know your iPod's MAC adress, go to: Settings > General > Info > (scroll down) Wi-Fi Address. If you give me some more info 'bout your router/modem, I'll search some more info.
Kind regards, FriskYR

Will not allow me to connect using an ipod touch.

My IPaq wireless has an icon that lets me log into other networks by just selecting them and putting in the password or no password if it's an open network.

I Googled the Ipod touch instructions and found a MAC blogger with the specific instructions here

If you can't login because you don't see the router, try logging into the router from a computer connected to it and make sure the wireless is turned on and broadcasting an SSID. If you have a WEP password set, you will be able to read it under the Wireless Basic Wireless Settings tab. If you need specific help with the WRT, you may visit the Linksys site. Here's a link to connecting your wireless device to a Linksys product

or, here's a manual where you can start at page 13,0.pdf

If I reset my d-link router will my household

If you set up your again with exactly as it was before the reset you (same WEP key, wireless network name) then your computers should just reconnect. If you're having to reset the WEP key, the worst that will happen is that you'll get a prompt to put in the new password the next time your computers try to connect to the wireless.

NB - performing a reset on your router will mean you have to set the thing up from from scratch so make sure you have your internet username and password to hand (if it's ADSL) and that you know what your old wireless network settings are before proceeding.

I have a i pod touch and it wont link with linksys

Well you need to check the wifi settings in your ipode. Make the same settings which you have configured in your linksys Router.

If you have enabled Mac filtering on the Linksys router then u need to add the mac address of your ipod in the list.

I think that would solve your problem.
