Have a d-link router with password. Ipod touch(8G) won't connect

Try remove the password on D-Link router, put it on open conditions (no security enabled).It should work.
If still won't connect, try using laptop or any wireless device to connect to router(without password), if connect, then there's something wrong with your Ipod.

I accidentally got a password lock and cant remember it.

Use the computer that you originally used, and open up itunes this should allow you to reset the password and resync your data. If you use a computer that was not used to sync it you will be able to unlock it but the ipod will be wiped.

Hope this helps
