    Have you typed the password in correctly? Do you know how many devices your router supports at once wirelessly?

My ipod recognises the wifi network but can't connect


The iPod touch has the ability to connect to Wi-Fi networks, giving you access to information while on the go.
The iPod detects both protected and unprotected networks, and can remember which Wi-Fi networks you have used before, eliminating the need to enter passwords more than once.
Your iPod touch should automatically detect wireless networks, but you can also manually connect to a network or switch to a new one.
Tap the "Settings" icon on the home screen and tap the "Wi-Fi" button.
Tap the "On/Off" button to turn your Wi-Fi on. Press the "Home" button to return to the home screen.
Tap the Safari Web Browser application or any other application that requires Internet access.
A list will automatically open on your screen that names all available networks.
Tap the network you wish to use from the list.
The networks listed are all wireless networks detected by the iPod.
Protected networks will have lock icons to the right of their names.
Enter the password if the network you have selected is protected.
Your iPod touch will store this password for future use.
Type in the name of the network you wish to use if it is not listed.
A network that is set to not broadcast will not show up on the list of available networks.
Check the top left of the screen for the Wi-Fi icon to be sure you have connected.
The number of bars on the icon indicates the strength of the signal.
Manually Connect
Tap the "Settings" icon on the home screen and tap the "Wi-Fi" button.
Tap the "On/Off" button to turn your Wi-Fi on.
Tap a network listed under "Choose a Network..."
The networks listed are all wireless networks detected by the iPod.
Protected networks will have lock icons to the right of their names.
Enter the password if the network you have selected is protected.
Your iPod touch will store this password for future use.
Type in the name of the network you wish to use if it is not listed.
A network set not to broadcast will not show up on the list of available networks.

I have been unsuccesful securing a Wi-Fi network for the Apple iPod iTouch, that I recently bought. It will not install a network while searching. Any suggestions ?


First put security on the router that you are using. Then see if other computers are able to connect to it. If it can already, turn off and on the IPOD touch then search for a network. Once you see the network Select it to connect then it should as for the security key. As for the wireless security on your router make sure that you are using only WEP or WPA the IPOD touch does not support WPA2 yet.

How to Connect my Apple iPod Touch 8 GB to Internet


<p>Apple iPod touch is a touch screen version of its popular iPod device, similar in appearance and function of the iPhone. Like the iPhone, iPod touch is able to access the Internet, although by different means. While the iPhone usually connect to the Internet via a wireless network operator's mobile data, the only way to connect to the Internet in an 8 GB iPod Touch is the device to use built-in wireless adapter. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Get references to a wireless network nearby, if you are not home or do not have access to a public network without a password. If you're in a cafe, for example, ask the cashier to use the network password and you should use to connect. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Tap your iPod Touch "Settings" icon and "Wi-Fi." If a blue button "off" appears next to the Wi-Fi, tap it on the wireless adapter to connect the device. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Scroll through the list of wireless networks will appear, and then tap corresponding to your network.

How can i update my iPod model # MC086LL


The iPod touch is not only a music player, but also your gateway to the world via the Internet. In order to connect to the iTunes music store and use the email and web-browsing features of your iPod touch, you must first connect to a wireless network.

Touch the "Settings" icon on the home screen of the iPod touch. The iPod does not require you to press down very hard to select an icon. Using your finger, lightly tap the application you want to activate it. Choose the Wi-Fi setting and turn it on. You may need to wait a moment while the device locates available networks. Select the wireless network you want to connect to. You may have more than one option based on your location. If you are prompted for a password, enter it and touch "Join." Opt to have your iPod alert you when there is a new network you can join. This can be useful if you are no longer in range of a network you have previously used. To receive these messages, turn on the "Ask to Join Networks" feature. Tell the iPod touch to "forget" a wireless network that you no longer want to use, so it will not automatically try to connect you. Under the Wi-Fi settings, tap the ">" button next to the network you want to delete and then touch "Forget this network." Expect that some wireless networks detected by your iPod touch will ask you to sign up for a fee-based service. If this is acceptable to you, open up the Safari application from the home screen. You will be taken to a website that explains the terms of service and accepts credit card payments for wireless Internet access.
When the iPod touch was introduced in 2007, it quickly became one of the best-selling portable music players on the market. What separated the iPod touch from its competitors was its ability to access the Internet through Wi-Fi networks. If you're ready to surf the web and send e-mail with your new iPod touch, it's easy to get connected. Just a few taps, and you'll be on your way.

Tap the "Settings" icon on your iPod touch's home screen. Tap the arrow on the far right of the "Wi-Fi" bar on the "Settings" screen. Move the slider on the "Wi-Fi" bar to the "On" position. Move the slider on the "Ask to Join Networks" bar to the "On" position if you wish to be notified before your iPod touch connects to a new network. Moving the slider to the "Off" position means you must select a Wi-Fi network manually before your iPod touch will connect. Press the "Home" button to return to your iPod touch's home screen. You will see the Wi-Fi icon appear in the top left corner of your screen with up to four bars illuminated to indicate that Wi-Fi is available and to show its signal strength. iPod touch Support

Ensure your Wifi settings are configured correctly. Try loading different YouTube videos. If the problems till persists, try restoring your iPod to its original factory settings. To do this, right click your iPod in your iTunes Devices List and select the option to Restore.

    • Don't despair if you do not have a wireless network connection in your home. Public libraries often have wireless Internet access and do not charge their patrons for using it. Local cafes, coffeehouses and bookstores may also provide hotspots to their customers, but you may have to pay a fee for the service.
    • Fully charge the battery of your iPod touch before you go in search of a wireless network. Using the USB cable that came with your iPod, hook your iPod up to your computer. Make sure your computer does not go into "sleep" mode or the battery may actually drain instead of charge

    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.

    My itouch won't connect to my wireless network


    This happened to me as well. Turned out the iPod touch doesn't support WEP encryption properly, and sometimes can't log onto those networks.

    If your network is WEP-encrypted, try changing it to WPA.
