Ipod Touch can't connect to WiFi

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!!!

MY only solution was reset my i-pod touch, and after reset it's working very well my Wi-Fi.

To reset your i-pod touch just go to settings
you will find reset button.

Alternately, check your router to see if it actually sees the i-pod.

Try re-synching your i-pod.

Also try resetting your router with the i-pod off then after router resets turn i-pod back on. Should find then..

Hope this helps.

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).

How do I make my ipod touch 4th generation connect to the cable modem via a wireless network connection? (I have a Motorola Surfboard SB5101U) I've already set up the connection, and on my ipod it...


Make sure you have the newest updates on your ipod touch. also I would goto the apps store and try downloading a free brower and see if they will connect if not then it has something to do with the conflicting with the modem as far as maybe too many devices connected and a ip address is overlaping causeing it to glitch out.

if you can access the store on your ipod touch then there is no reason why safari shouldn't work.

another thing you can do is.

try resetting your iPod. Nothing will be lost:
Reset iPod touch: Press and hold the On/Off Sleep/Wake button and the Home
button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears
- Next restore the iPod from backup via iTunes on your computer.
- Lastly. restore the iPod to factory defaults/new iPod since there may be corruption that is now in the backup.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

I have an ipod touch 8gb 1st generation... There's an icon on the home screen for youtube that came already on the ipod. Every time I click the youtube icon it says "cannot connect to youtube"...


Ensure your Wifi settings are configured correctly. Try loading different YouTube videos. If the problems till persists, try restoring your iPod to its original factory settings. To do this, right click your iPod in your iTunes Devices List and select the option to Restore.

Wont connect to internet


To connect to the internet using wifi on the iPod touch, just follow the following steps:
Firstly, you should be in a wifi zone(an area where you can access wifi) or if you want to use it at your house with your residential internet connection, just get yourself a wifi router(shouldn’t cost more than $50-60) and configure it with your residential internet Once you are in a wifi zone, on your iPod touch, go to:
Settings > Wifi > Turn your wifi ON > Select a wifi network > Key in the WEP(only if asked for) > Connect
Once you’re done with this, you should get the IP settings and be able to surf the internet with no problem.
Note: At times when you’re too far away from the wireless router or a big thick brick wall is separating you and the wifi router, your iPod might show the network as available and you would also be able to connect to it, but surfing the internet using it would become a problem. If this happens to you, don’t worry, just move closer to the wifi router and it shouldn’t pose any other problems. Happy Surfing!

Like he said...


Not all WiFi networks are actually connected to the internet - you could try connecting to different networks, or get closer to the access point. Sometimes, with mobile devices like phones and iPods, it tells you you're connected to the network but the signal is too poor and you end up not being able to actually do anything on it.

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.
