It should be on DHCP. When you first bring it up on "Settings" does it see your network? If it does, it should ask you for your password and, after typing that in, it should just log on. I have seen mine have difficulty if the router is using WPA encryption. If you can get back to me after you try those, I might be able to help more.

How do i get my wep key for my itouch


The touch doesnt have a "key" this is the key from the Wi-fi spot you are trying to connect to.
You will need the person that owns that wi-fi to provide that to you. The itouch simply connects to the wi-fi and uses it for internet.
Hope this helps.

What do I choose for the WiFi network for my ipod touch regarding the IP address - DHCP, BootP, Static?


Should be DHCP as your ISP will automatically set up the IP address for your network.

Wi-fi connection


I had exactly the same problem with a brand new 3rd gen iTouch. It showed it was connected to the network but wouldn't access anything (invalid argument etc). I tried everything but no joy. Eventually I fixed it by changing the router's encryption from WEP to WPA2-PSK. Fixed it like magic. Where there had been no router or DNA data before, they were suddenly filled in. The key was different but was still on the bottom of the router. I had to re-enter the key on my wireless laptop2_bing.gif but that was a small price.

You can get into the router set-up page through your web browser. I found a guide on You Tube.

Good luck!

All you should have to do is open Wi-Fi in system preferences. From there, touch the little blue circle next to the Wi-Fi network you're signed. Then, just hit "Renew Lease" at the bottom of the screen.
If that doesn't do it, completely turn your modem, Wi-Fi router and iTouch off. After 5 full minutes, turn on the modem, another 2 minutes later, turn on the Wi-Fi router, yet another minute at least, turn on your iTouch.
If that still doesn't work or you have any questions, feel free to call me.

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

My new itouch won't connect with my wireless network in my home. I have a linksys router.


Here is what I did with my Linksys. I went into my security settings and retrieved my Encryption code. Entered it EXACTLY the same as my password (and not the password I had setup on my router). At first it said I was connected, but no bars, then I went into the info (IP, Subnet mask, ETC) and changed it to static and *~POOF~* Wi-Fi connected.

Hope this helps!
