Re: wi-fi connection does not work, though recognizes...
I had the same problem. This is a router problem. If you are comfortable with going in and re-configuring some things with your router , you maybe able to repair this. Try changing the channel your router is operating on. Make sure your router is not near a telephone or other device that may operate on or near the same frequency. This could affect your ability to be a able to connect via wifi.

It has to be thru a Wi-Fi. Go to your settings and make sure the Wi-Fi is turned on. It does not access the net on it's own like a cell phone. It rides on a Wi-Fi. Check your settings be sure the Wi-Fi is on, if you have Wireless internet in your home you will have to set up the wep settings, or your router numbers.
This worked for me: Went into SETTINGS > Wi-Fi > Selected my Network (which my iPod said I was already connected to) > Selected "Forget this Network" (which disconnects you from your network) > Re-selected my network and under password, I entered the 'Security Key' from my Verizon FIOS Tech Wizard info and the device accessed the app store successfully.
go to settings and wifi...look for your network and tap on it. Join your network and if it is secure it is asking for the WEP key which is on the label of the router. Enter that kep and it should join. if it is truely an unsecure wifi you should be able to get right on by joining it.
You may be seeing full signal but it may be your neighbors or next door
All you should have to do is open Wi-Fi in system preferences. From there, touch the little blue circle next to the Wi-Fi network you're signed. Then, just hit "Renew Lease" at the bottom of the screen.
If that doesn't do it, completely turn your modem, Wi-Fi router and iTouch off. After 5 full minutes, turn on the modem, another 2 minutes later, turn on the Wi-Fi router, yet another minute at least, turn on your iTouch.
If that still doesn't work or you have any questions, feel free to call me.

Here is what I did with my Linksys. I went into my security settings and retrieved my Encryption code. Entered it EXACTLY the same as my password (and not the password I had setup on my router). At first it said I was connected, but no bars, then I went into the info (IP, Subnet mask, ETC) and changed it to static and *~POOF~* Wi-Fi connected.
