Question about Apple iPod nano 4th Generation

1 Answer

I can connect to the internet but not to Itunes store, AIM...

I am running Vista and am having some problems with my connection. I use a Wireless router and haven't had problems in the past, but for whatever reason Itunes will not allow me to connect to their store. Furthermore, my AIM will not allow me to connect any longer. I downloaded a few other programs that will not allow my computer to contact with them either.

I am instantly getting the message 'Network Connection timed out' from Itunes store.

Itunes is not out of date. My firewall is set to allow communication with Itunes.

I even performed this remedy:

The "hosts" file may be blocking the iTunes Store Find and rename your hosts file to "backup-hosts." Restart the computer to generate a new file. The hosts file is normally found in the following locations:

I'm assuming my ISP isn't the problem because the store has always worked in the past.

Any Ideas?

Itunes says it cant connect to the itunes store because the internet isnt connected, but it is... what should i do?

Many connection issues can be resolved by configuring Internet-filtering software to recognize the iTunes application and the iTunes Store addresses (listed below).
(The following iTunes Store Internet addresses should be added as trusted domains to any filtering software that may be running:)

  • You can configure your Internet software to allow iTunes to access the Internet. If you're using Norton Personal Firewall or Norton Internet Security, you will need to enable iTunes in your Firewall settings.

    I can connect to the internet but not to Itunes store, AIM...

    Turn off your windows firewall and try connecting again.
    If it connects then windows is the culprit.
    It shouldn't be your iPod, but it definitely sounds like a firewall issue or an internet connection issue.

    The windows firewall is pretty harsh when it comes to programs that they don't endorse.
    also, If you want to keep your firewall on, open the security center and firewall, uncheck the box on the bottum to allow exclusion of http: site. It could be checked and only allowing exclusion of https: sites.

    Good Luck

    Internet connection lost when windows updates, have to do system restore to get back online. Tried downloading firefox and safari neither browser can 'connect to server'. Also the anti virus software can...

    I had he same problem connecting to the internet after downloading the updates for Windows XP. It turn out to be that the surcurity downloads are to harsh for some anti virius programmes, and I was told to uninstall my free version of Zone Alarm and try to connect to the internet again. This I did do and was able to connect to internet again. I have since re-installed the Zone Alarm programme and I am able to use the internet once again with the above working.

    I hope this help's you.

    Unable to connect to the internet

    if you can connect to your router using when connected, then vista isn't your problem. You need most likely need to resync your router to your cable/dsl modem. The easiest thing to do is run the on the computer that was connected to the modem. You will go to the clone mac address, then reboot the router, or renew dhcp. If there is any other problems message me on AIM.
