The iPod is prompting your daughter for her iTunes Store Account details. To create a new account. Open iTunes on your computer, from the menu select "Store" and click "Create Account". You don't need to do anything to the iPod.

3. If the above fixes don't work then the only thing left is to restore the iPod touch software using iTunes which will erase all data on the device. So before restoring make sure you back up your data by syncing with iTunes.

After the restore is complete, you can re-sync with iTunes to load the data back to your iPodTouch. Now see if your device shows a WiFi address (tap Settings >General > About and scroll down to WiFi Address).

Need to setup email on iphon 3gs. I need step by step info.


Setting up email accountsEmail account setup with Mail is easy. If you're setting up an email account for the first time on iPhone or iPod touch, simply touch the Mail icon on the Home screen. If you're adding an additional account with software version 2.0 or later, touch the Settings icon on the Home screen, select Mail, Contacts, Calendars and select Add Account.
If you're setting up a Microsoft Exchange, MobileMe, Gmail, Yahoo! or AOL account, touch the icons for those services on the Add Account screen and enter your account information. If you're setting up an email account from another provider, select Other. In software version 2.0 or later, Mail can automatically setup many popular POP and IMAP email accounts using just your email address and password.1 As Mail looks up settings that match your email account you may see a note appear that will describe any limitations you may experience in using your email account. If Mail cannot find the settings needed to setup your email account, refer to the documentation from your email provider on how to manually setup an email account.
Syncing email account settings to iPhone
You use iTunes to sync your email account setttings to iPhone or iPod touch. iTunes supports Mail on a Mac, and Microsoft Outlook (2007 or 2003) and Outlook Express on a PC. See article "Syncing iPhone " for further details.

Note: Syncing email account settings to iPhone or iPod touch copies the email account setup, not the messages themselves. Whether the messages in your inbox appear on both iPhone or iPod touch and your computer depends on the type of email account you have and how it's configured. You may need to enter your password on the device after syncing account settings.

When trying to send an email from my ipod touch, the message "cannot send mail the sender address was invalid". I am able to receive all emails and otherwise my email account (aol) works normally.


I would try reconfiguring your e-mail setting. Here is how you do it:

Set Up an Email Account to Use on an IPod Touch
  • Set up your iPod touch to sync by attaching the wide end of the USB cable into the dock at the bottom of your iPod. Insert the smaller end into a USB port on your computer. The keyboard ports on a desktop computer do not have enough power to sustain syncing, so use one of the ports on the computer itself.
  • Open iTunes and wait for your iPod to be recognized. Go to the "Info" tab at the top of the summary screen that appears.
  • Choose the type of email account you want to sync from the list of options. Refer to your iPod touch user manual to find out which mail programs are compatible with your iPod. Click on "Sync."
  • Get a free email account to use with your iPod touch if you do not have an email account through your Internet Service Provide (ISP). Both Yahoo! and Google Mail (Gmail) offer free email accounts that can be used with the iPod touch (see Resources below). Go to "Settings," "Mail" and "Account" to add an email address from Yahoo! or Gmail directly to your iPod touch.
Check and Send Email on Your IPod Touch
  • Tap the "Mail" icon on the home screen of your iPod. When you have unread mail in your inbox, the number of messages will display in a red circle at the top of the icon.
  • Touch the inbox or other mailboxes that you may have set up to see the unread messages. Each unread message will have a blue dot next to it.
  • Read a message by tapping on the subject line. The full message will then appear on your screen. To read another email, you can touch the up and down arrows or you can go back to the inbox to select another email.
  • View photo, video, word processing and spreadsheet attachments by downloading them to your iPod touch. Tap the attachment to open it. When it has finished downloading, you will be able to see it on the screen.
  • Reply to an email that you have been sent by tapping the "Reply" icon (it looks like a backward arrow) when you are viewing the message.
  • Send a new email by tapping the icon that looks like a pencil and paper. Use the keyboard to enter in the recipient's email address or choose an address from your contact list. Type the text of your message and touch "Send."
  • Check for new messages in your inbox by tapping the "Refresh" button. This is an icon that looks like a circular-shaped arrow.
  • Delete an email by touching it and then touching the trash can icon.
WARNING
Syncing an email address to an iPod touch activates the email account and makes it ready to use on the device. It does not transfer actual email messages from the computer to the iPod touch. Conversely, remember that any changes in the settings that are made to the email account through the iPod will not sync back to the computer. Individual settings will have to be restored on the computer if desired.

APPLE I POD TOUCH


Hi Rob

The IP address that the iPod is showing is a "self-assigned" address meaning that it has looked around for something to give it an IP (i.e. a DHCP server) but not found anything. There could be lots of reasons for this. First, on your wireless router, is it set to broadcast its SSID? If not, the iPod can't see it. Second, is the router set to act as a DHCP server so that computers etc can be assigned an IP address and the network info needed? Third, does your router have a setting to only allow connections from specific devices, normally identified by their MAC address? If so, you'll have to check the MAC address of your iPod and add that into the list. Finally, do you have security settings such as WEP or WPA encryption on the router that you need to enter the details of into your iPod?

Connecting Ipod touch 8(GB) to Wi-fi


After fighting with this for the last couple of hours I have my ipod touch working with the netgear DG834G(v3) router. The fix is a bit odd and I am not entirely sure why it works but I thought I would share and hopefully it might help you out …

First I think that the WEP encryption simply does not work between these two devices and causes some very strange behaviour – the WEP 'authentication type' setting I had on the 'wireless settings' page was set to 'shared key' – I flicked this to 'automatic' & strength to ‘128 bit’ - hit apply and finally I found I was able to connect without an error message (after inputting the correct WEP key). Unfortunately the DHCP did not work correctly after this and I kept receiving IP addresses in the range of 169.254.x.x (an internal default) rather than my networks expected 192.168.0.x range. The Ipod touch couldn’t find any DNS servers or connect to the internet.


To get round this I set the router ‘security options’ to use WPA instead (WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)) instead of WEP. Set the new WPA password at the bottom of the wireless settings page - again hit apply - and configured the ipod to use the new password and WPA PSK instead of WEP. This worked fine – although it does mean I have to change the settings on all my other wireless devices around the house!

The weird thing is that although the router isn’t using WEP encryption changing the 'authentication type' setting back to ‘shared key’ in the WEP menu breaks the WPA connection again – very odd? I blame netgear and their obviously crazy wep code :)
