Home network: WRTG54 Linksys
Secure: WEP key
I have inputted the WEP key, the ipod is telling me that I am connected but when I try to open the browser, itunes or stocks, it tells me that I am not connected to the internet. Apple customer service troubleshooted with me and told me to send it back. I did and they are now telling me everything works well. Still can't connect to my network. What am I not doing???
Ipod touch connects to router, then loses connection. When I try to reconnect, it will not do so. I have to unplug the modem and router, reset first the modem, then plug in and reset the router, then turn the ipod touch back on. It will connect, then lose its connection a short time later. Any suggestions?

I do not recommend that you use WEP for security as this is no longer a secure method for wireless network.
Setting up a wireless network can be a bit tricky at times, but if you follow this step by step guide for Linksys routers, you will have your wireless network up and secure in no time.
It will walk you through resetting the wireless router and quickly setting up a securing your network.
Have you set the properties on the second computer to match the security expected by the router? Since one computer works I would compare the settings for the network connection and set the second computer to the same.
You must be sure to what router you are trying to connect. I understand you have a ZyXel and a linksys. You must have 2 wireless networks. Your wireless network must be secured, so you just have to use the correct password. I need more details. Try this http://technicalsupport.blog.friendster.com
you need to talk to your isp people you also need to put youe isp no into the i pod because it is wireless they sometimes have certain codes you need to put in when I bought my wife hers we had to tell it it was on bell wireless and give it the key id no your internet provider should be able to help you they helped me I also was told by bell though I was not aware of it that it was working fine from their end they could read it as connected to their service...good luck
ok do this if it is already showing your router up on your portable device but it has that security lock and you are unable to join or need a password which u dont know lol go to that network and on the top push forget this network. than go back and click on for other location. than for the name put in your router name usually 5 characters long make sure u use capitalization cuz its case sensitive. than select what kind of key u have it should say right on the side of your wireless router. than type the key in usually a wep key and u should be set to join it if it doesnt auto matically do soo
After fighting with this for the last couple of hours I have my ipod touch working with the netgear DG834G(v3) router. The fix is a bit odd and I am not entirely sure why it works but I thought I would share and hopefully it might help you out …
First I think that the WEP encryption simply does not work between these two devices and causes some very strange behaviour – the WEP 'authentication type' setting I had on the 'wireless settings' page was set to 'shared key' – I flicked this to 'automatic' & strength to ‘128 bit’ - hit apply and finally I found I was able to connect without an error message (after inputting the correct WEP key). Unfortunately the DHCP did not work correctly after this and I kept receiving IP addresses in the range of 169.254.x.x (an internal default) rather than my networks expected 192.168.0.x range.The Ipod touch couldn’t find any DNS servers or connect to the internet. To get round this I set the router ‘security options’ to use WPA instead (WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)) instead of WEP. Set the new WPA password at the bottom of the wireless settings page - again hit apply - and configured the ipod to use the new password and WPA PSK instead of WEP.This worked fine – although it does mean I have to change the settings on all my other wireless devices around the house! The weird thing is that although the router isn’t using WEP encryption changing the 'authentication type' setting back to ‘shared key’ in the WEP menu breaks the WPA connection again – very odd? I blame netgear and their obviously crazy wep code :)
