My own iPod Touch connects fine to the WiFi, but my husband got one today and I can't connect it, even tho I've done everything the same! When I go into the settings, if I let it automatically find the IP address and all the other settings, then the 'Router' box appears blank! It's as if the iPod can't find the router! If I enter the settings manually it just doesn't remember them and still doesn't connect!
Also, the iPod tells me that I'm connected (without the router info) and even gives me full bars, but when I try to do anything requiring internet access it just says loading but never does.
Please help this is driving me nuts!!!
Here's what worked for me: 1. go to your router settings (try typing in 192.168.1.1 where you normally type websites). if that doesn't work, go to the website of whoever manufactures your router. they will tell you the login and password for step 2. 2. enter your password to modify router's settings. default is normally "admin" and "admin" 3. settings for different routers will vary, but go to "wireless" and enable SSID broadcast. now your router will appear in iTouch.
the biggest lesson i learned here is that your "password" to modify router settings is not necessarily the same as your Encryption or WEP "key". navigate in router settings to "Wireless Security" (or something like that) and find your WEP (or WPA, etc.) KEY.
Now you should see your network and have the accurate password. Test it, and afterwards you can "Disable SSID broadcast" and login manually on your itouch. Just make sure you took note of the type of security being used (WEP, WPA, etc).
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Yes you need wireless router to use wifi in ipod touch or on laptop. Connect
your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with
following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or
http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access
it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your
router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type
user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you
can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to
access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press
RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all
settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method.
Then click on wireless and enable it.
click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code
password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and
restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me
know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
1. Choose (Settings) then (WiFi) then (turn WiFi on)
2. Set iPod touch to ask if you want to join a new network:Choose (WiFi) and turn (Ask to Join Networks) ON or OFF.
Then you'll need to join a WiFi network (your D-Link for instance)
1. Choose (Settings) then (WiFi) then wait until your D-Link shows up in the list of networks.
2. Select your network and if you have a password for your router make sure you type it. (networks that require a password have a lock icon next to it) then tap (join)
Once you join a WiFi network manually, iPod touch will automatically connect to it whenever the network is in range. If more than one previously used network is in range, iPod touch joins the one last used.
When iPod touch is connected to a WiFi network, the WiFi icon in the status bar at the top of the screen shows the connection strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the connection.
Go to the settings and check if your wifi network is listed under WIFI. If not unplug your modem, wait 30 secs, plug it back in and check ipod again after 4 mins. If not, then you wifi router is broken. you can try unplugging that but i doubt it will work.
it probably cant connect to the dns server of the wifi.
check the numbers of the dns server the college uses for wifi, program them into your ipod(sometimes 'detect automatic' doesnt work on public wifi), then it should be able to connect.
You must be sure to what router you are trying to connect. I understand you have a ZyXel and a linksys. You must have 2 wireless networks. Your wireless network must be secured, so you just have to use the correct password. I need more details. Try this http://technicalsupport.blog.friendster.com
