Unable to connect to wifi network on ipod 2g touch
When I try to connect to a wifi network on my Ipod Touch it asks me to enter a password then press 'join'. I haven't any idea which password I am supposed to enter. My password used to connect me to the Internet on my desktop does not work, and there is nowhere I can see that I can set up a password to allow the connection. can someone please help??
Re: 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.

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.
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.

password or ask the Wi-Fi to the administrator. Unsecured Wi-Fi does not

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.
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.
Did it ever connect to wifi before? I had the problem today and when it picked up the network connection I hit "forget network" and the let it reload, then I re-entered my password (to the network) and it connected perfectly :) Hope this helps you.
