I KNOW that I have WiFi at my house. It says it's connected but when I go to use any of my apps that use the internet it says it won't work. And the same happens when I go to check my email or open Safari. What do I do?!?! Do the settings for WiFi need to be on something specific for this to work? I've had it work before at my grandparents house, but it won't work at my house!

lets you take photos and shoot videos with the device has two built-in cameras,
app 'Maps' gives you access to Google Maps, and "Music" app you can
play music and audio books. If you want to do the tasks with the iPod touch,

Hi there and welcome to FixYa, WiFi are often secured with passwords and encryptions. I assume you know the WiFi code and have entered it. This is probably why you can 'connect' to your route. However, most routers have a MAC filtering option, which only allows devices that are ont the 'MAC Adress granted' list to be passed through to the "internet". Make sure your iPod is on that list by reconfiguring your router. Kind regards, please rate this solution.
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!

Click on the "Settings" app. You'll see a "Wi-Fi" setting at the top, make sure it's turned on.
You'll need to be near a WiFi network. If you don't have one in your home, you'll need to get a router with WiFi. If you just want to test your iPod Touch with WiFi, go to some heavily populated area, it's likely that someone will have a WiFi network that doesn't require a password. Apartment complex parking lots are good places to try this.
Private Wifi network are normally encrypted and may also not broadcast the SSID for security: you need to know and configure your ipod touch with those 'secret' details before you connect and ensure that 802.11b/g are enabled.
The following is the link to the official Apple troubleshooting site:
Try manually connecting to your network. Stand as close to the router as you can, and keep the wifi reciever pointed at it.
Alternatively, just go to somewhere in your house where you know you have a GOOD connection (closer to your router, the better), and press the power button once (to put into standby). Press it again to bring up the lockscreen, and wait. Repeat this until the wifi bar appears in your statusbar.
