Go reset your router, (Unplug it for about five minutes and then plug it back in, wait one to two minutes) and see if it works then. Good luck!!

My ipod touch is new and has no damage done to it. i have a wireless network in my house with a full connection and i have the correct password. it recognizes my network ( my networks name is flower) and i...

Touch the "Settings" icon on the home screen of the iPod touch. The iPod does not require you to press down very hard to select an icon. Using your finger, lightly tap the application you want to activate it.
  • Step 2 Choose the Wi-Fi setting and turn it on. You may need to wait a moment while the device locates available networks.
  • Step 3 Select the wireless network you want to connect to. You may have more than one option based on your location. If you are prompted for a password, enter it and touch "Join."
  • Step 4 Opt to have your iPod alert you when there is a new network you can join. This can be useful if you are no longer in range of a network you have previously used. To receive these messages, turn on the "Ask to Join Networks" feature.
  • Step 5 Tell the iPod touch to "forget" a wireless network that you no longer want to use, so it will not automatically try to connect you. Under the Wi-Fi settings, tap the ">" button next to the network you want to delete and then touch "Forget this network."
  • Step 6 Expect that some wireless networks detected by your iPod touch will ask you to sign up for a fee-based service. If this is acceptable to you, open up the Safari application from the home screen. You will be taken to a website that explains the terms of service and accepts credit card payments for wireless Internet access.

    • Don't despair if you do not have a wireless network connection in your home. Public libraries often have wireless Internet access and do not charge their patrons for using it. Local cafes, coffeehouses and bookstores may also provide hotspots to their customers, but you may have to pay a fee for the service.
    • Fully charge the battery of your iPod touch before you go in search of a wireless network. Using the USB cable that came with your iPod, hook your iPod up to your computer. Make sure your computer does not go into "sleep" mode or the battery may actually drain instead of charge

    I try to join my network no lock nothing it will have full bars perfect signal and yet it says 'Unable to join the network ''linksys''. word for word

    Your WiFi router may be configured to not allow your iPod Touch to connect to it. This is done by specifying a list of "MAC addresses" that can connect to the router.

    Unable to connect to wifi network on ipod 2g touch

    You must have your wireless profile's name and passkey.  Try resetting your router, then make sure you create a new profile for your desktop and take note of the details (ie name, WEP/WPA Key)  Should work just fine if you follow the steps.

    Unable to join the network

    It means it has a password protecting the network or they have mac address only allowed for certain devices. So even if the network shows it's open you still can use it.

    Wifi connection & itouch

    I finally discovered the problem. I have a Linksys wireless
    router, so when I tried to log on with my iTouch, I got the
    message "Unable to join network "my network name" when
    I typed in my password. One day, after many trys, I tried
    typing in the network security key for my router, and Voila,
    it worked. For some unknown reason (to me), the iTouch
    recognizes the the network security key as the password.
