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.

My ipod touch won't connect to my home wifi- it has a password and i know it but it won't work when i try to connect to youtubesafari or anything else used with internet and it doesn't work.


Hi,
You could try this: Go to Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings.
After resetting that, try to connect to your WiFi again and enter the password and it should work.

I just bought an ipod touch and I thought it was already set up for internet. How do I do that?


No, iPod touch have no way of connecting to the internet other than wifi (unlike iPhone that has 3G).
This means that there must be wifi signal around you before you can browse the web or receive email.

To check for available networks around you, on your iPod touch, go to Settings > Wi-Fi, then select the network that you want to use.

Often times, wifi networks are secured by a password, meaning, you need to ask permission to the owner of that signal to gain access. In a cefe for example, you can gain access to their secured network by simply asking the person in the counter.

I was allowed at first to play games on my ipod touch, but now i am not able to, the internet on my ipod touch needs a password and i didn't need one before


Are you saying that when you attempt to play a game, it tries to use the Internet, which then prompts you for a password?

Either someone configured your WiFi network to require a password (ask your friends/family), or you're attempting to connect to someone else's WiFi network that requires a password (tsk tsk).

Or, if you're talking about the screen lock code (4 digit password when you turn on your iPod), and you don't know the code, you'll need to restore your iPod. Connect it to your computer, run iTunes, select your iPod on the left side, then click the "Restore" button.

IPod Touch does not connect to my home network?


In my case, I keep getting endlessly prompted to enter my passcode for my wireless router. I found that if I reboot the iTouch - hold down the top power button and slide the "slide to power off". Wait for it to finish powering off and then power it back on by holding the same button. When it comes back up it automatically connects to my home network again. Seems to happen every time I connect to an outside wifi network and then return home... I wish I knew WHY it does this - I suspect it has something to do with how my home wireless router is configured.

You will need to to enter your password the first time. Then iPod will connect it automatically. Goto Settings > Wi-Fi. Set it to ON. It will automatically search for available networks. Once you see your network, press on it. It will take you to another screen asking you to enter your password. Enter it here and press Join.
make sure automatically join networks is set to ON as well.

Ipod touch won't connect to wifi


There's a possibility that the password that the network was asking is the 'network key' (e.g. WEP or WPA-PSK). If this is the password that the network is asking for, you need to contact the administrator of that network and ask for the Network Key, because that network is secured. They put this kind of security to prevent unauthorized users to connect to their wireless network.

Have a great day!
