I'm using an "N" router. I got my i-touch for Christmas I've tried different DNS, IP addresses, etc. I've spent hours trying to figure out how to fix it, and I have no idea. Why won't it work? Why did it all of a sudden stop? When I say suddenly, that's exactly what I mean. It had just loaded the google page the very first time i tried to get onto wifi and just as it got done loading, the "can't find server" message appeared. I'm thinking about taking it to the apple store and after 3 times i ll get a new one maybe after i get a couple of new ones i ll find one that ll work like it s supposed to.....

I had exactly the same problem with a brand new 3rd gen iTouch. It showed it was connected to my wifi network but wouldn't access anything (invalid argument etc). I tried everything but no joy. Eventually I fixed it by changing my 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 laptop 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.
Connect using Lan Cable be sure to enable java on your Browser. Use ONLY IE: some router refuse other browser. SET your PC on a static IP address on SAME subnet as your router (but of course different IP). If subnet concept is NOT clear to just just ask here. When connected with router (on Lan Cable) check every setting (WPA-PSK) TKIP key, Broadcast / Channel etc. You can also disable every WLAN protection and restore it later. Activate WLAN connection WHEN you are STILL connected. Last but not least: SET your DNS IP address = your gateway IP (router)
can u please tell me which router it is? in most of the router there is a feature call DMZ. u need to enable the DMZ in the router & then u need to provide the static ip to Xbox 360 like 192.168.1.5 etc in the default getway u need to type the router IP address & on DNS u need to try three different settings 1st on primary DNS type the router ip address like 192.168.1.1, if it didn't work try with univeral DNS try on primary DNS as 188.8.131.52 & on secondary 184.108.40.206, if this didn't work either call ur ISP and ask for the DNS server address of ur ISP and try with that.
you do have an account with an isp yeah? eg BT, Tiscali, Sky, etc etc having a wireless router does not in itself get you onto the net... if you have an isp already thats cool but is the router you have a broadband modem too? or does it need to connect to your existing modem? the reason I ask is DNS is dial up networking service and one of the reasons a DNS would not be found is if there simply was not one to be found
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 :)
