Question about Apple iPod touch

2 Answers

Wi-fi connection today I tried 5 different wi-fi connecitons, some with password l already installed, others free. It did not recognise any of them - that little circle just keeps going round and round. Wi-Fi is ON Under choose a network it does not give me the options of any one to choose. Ask to Join a Network is ON. e.g. it tells me when I have just tried adding a gmail account that the IMAP server "imap.gmail.com" is not responding. Check your network connection and that you entered the correct information in the "incoming Mail server" field. Otherwise on my other accounts I get "conneciton to the server failed". Please help me! Much appreciated

I had exactly the same problem with a brand new 3rd gen iTouch. It showed it was connected to the network but wouldn't access anything (invalid argument etc). I tried everything but no joy. Eventually I fixed it by changing the router's encryption from WEP to WPA2-PSK. Fixed it like magic. Where there had been no router or DNA data before, they were suddenly filled in. The key was different but was still on the bottom of the router. I had to re-enter the key on my wireless laptopwi-fi connection - 2_bing.gif but that was a small price.

You can get into the router set-up page through your web browser. I found a guide on You Tube.

Good luck!

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.
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.

Password for wifi 2wire17


The iPod changed the face of the music industry.
Through Apple's device, the use of MP3 music players became a widespread phenomenon, and remains the standard mode of mobile musical enjoyment today.
Its interface was easy to learn and use, and you could store several gigabytes' worth of songs into the device.
Eventually, as new iPod models came out, mobile movie and picture viewing became much more accessible.
With the release of the iPod Touch, another feature was introduced--the ability to connect to wireless Internet.
If you own a 3rd Generation iPod Touch, it's easy to get your Wi-Fi working.
Go to "Settings" and find the Wi-Fi selection. Turn Wi-Fi on.
Wait as the Wi-Fi will detect possible networks connections within range.
Look for the network you wish to connect to and press it.
If it's not on the list, go to "Wi-Fi," select "Other" and type the name of the network.


If a password is required, click on the "Security" option, select the type of security, enter the password and press "Join."
You may have to pay a fee before you can establish a connection to a secured network.

Press the arrow button beside the name of the network to adjust the settings.
The network may have other requirements such as entering a client ID or static IP address.
The network administrator should be approached for these details.

Monitor the Wi-Fi icon at the top of the screen.
The more bars that are highlighted, the stronger the signal.
Get closer for a stronger signal.

How to set up wifi


If you're at home with a Wi-Fi router:

Goto "Settings" - "Wi-Fi"

Your router should appear in the list, if it doesn't - try restarting your router.

When you select your router it will most probably ask you for a password. This can be found under your router as MAC or WPA Key

You'll need a password for the majority of wi-fi hotspots you try connect to, although there are apps which will direct you to free hotspots.

Yesterday I went to the library where they have wifi so I could download new apps to my itouch and it worked great then today Im connected to wifi and it wont let me connect to anything that is internet...


Try turning wi/fi off, power down, power back on, and then turn wi/fi back on.  Also, install the new software update for this thing (3.1.2) to address wi/fi issues.

Cannot access home network anymore with the same password,on my i-pod touch screen.


Try paying Apple $5 and downloading the new update 3.1.1 you cheap bastard.  For some reason the Apple nerds feel sorry for your a.. and give you a free update to 3.1.2 after that.
Then try connecting to your wi/fi using the same password you use on your computer. The 3.1.2 update should address some of your wi-fi issues.
Some of you dumb as.es have tried to jail break your ipods and now your wi/fi and ipod is all fu.k.d up.  Don't try to cheat the system, cause the system in put in place to protect you from your own stupidity.  Remember, if it works then don't f.c.k with it.
