Itouch - logging onto wifi away from home computer

When I am on the road and want to get on the internet I am told there are two wifi connections availabl. No matter which one I choose, it asks for a passord - or to join. How do I either find a password or join? Nothing seems to work! BTW, is there a fee involved?

    we just purchased an itouch 2nd generation and have a belkin wireless router. we put in the password several times and it keeps telling us it is an incorrect password. we know it is the right password since we can connect with our laptop and desktop. Do you have any idea what we need to do to connect to wifi? Also, we've done some googling and several things said to click on 'renewal release' in the general settings. However, we do not have a button that says 'renewal release'. We don't know what to do to connect. Any suggestions you can suggest would be appreciated!!

You can go into your settings on your touch and see the networks that are available at any given time as long as your touch is on.
if it is an unsecure network it will not display a padlock. However that doesn;t mean you can use it free, it will go to a login page or some bull like that. Starbucks is one that is not free.
Mcdonalds is now offering free wifi and so does panera bread with an account.

but in the itunes store if you search "free Wifi" you will find an app that you can install that will help you find free wifi.
if it is an open access free wifi you should have no roblem get it to hook up.

check your itouch to see if you see the router.
Follow these instruction to set up wifi device.
.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the ITouch up in the router by WEP/WPA KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.

This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

My itouch can't seem to connect to my home wifi. even though i am in range of the wifi, the connection doesn't show up in the wifi settings. how do i fix this problem?!


Has your home wifi got SSID broadcasting disabled? Also check if you can connect to any other wifi points, if you cannot see any others, there may be a fault with the wifi board of your itouch

Itouch connects to the internet everywhere except home


This is due to your router, not your iPod. I've had to reset the router several times in s row before I could connect to the internet. I'm not sure why the third time worked when the first two didn't. My suggestion is to keep trying repeatedly.

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.

Connect itouch to wifi


Hi mac42eli,

You need any router or wireless access point to conenct your ipod touch to the internet or even your home network.

These days most wired routers will also have the option of wireless. You can check this by entering the routers configuration page. Usually by typing in 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. Or more simply, google you wired router model to check.

Bluetooth is not currently available for connection in the ipod touch or iphone. The iphone supports it, but for bluetooth headsets. Therefore, regardless of the fact that your mac pro (very nice computer by the way) can support it, your ipod touch can't take advantage of other bluetooth devices.

I hope this helps.

Nathan.

Is it possilbe to go on the internet through the USB cable?


It is not possible, sorry. You can however get a small wireless access point and just plug it into a switch at your office to log onto it. Make sure you at least have WEP/WPA on the access point

Are you trying to access your laptop (which you leave at home) from another computer away from home?
  • If so, head over to www.logmein.com and sign up for a free account. It's a wonderfully easy way to get remote control of your machine from another location without worrying about the networking.
Are you trying to use your laptop on the road and still have Internet?
  • If so, you will need some method for your laptop to connect to the Internet. If your laptop has a wireless WiFi card you can go to some location that has wireless internet. Many locations (such as hotels, cafes, and coffee houses) have free or paid wireless Internet service.
  • You can also get a Wireless Aircard as your friend said. These are a fee-based service from cell companies such as Verizon or Sprint that give you a card that plugs into your laptop and uses the wireless cell network to give you Internet access.
