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.

Son gave me a kindle fire, says I have an excellent wifi and then asks me to sign up for exfinity? Why isn't my home internet acceptable. Everything else in the house is wireless connected.

There are MANY "XfinityWifi" hotspots around the US. You may have connected to one of them inadvertently. Select the hotspot and choose "Forget this network". Now, connect to your home wifi. Good luck.

Hi can you please help me with this matter how do i reset my phone as i cant get on the internet i think i am conected to wifi

Connect to wifi, then open a web page to a new page. Do you see something that asks you to connect, or pay money?

If you are at home, you will need to connect your phone to your home wifi connection, and then you have to add the password.

If the phone worked before and nothing has changed, power the phone down, count to 10 and power it back up.

How to setup internet on a Huawei y220

You need a hotspot, or in other words an wireless router. If you have one, it is easy if you know what name and what password you gave your wireless connection. If you want to use an hotspot, while shopping, like in Starbucks or MacDonald, you need the name and PW of that connection.
Just in the settings goto WiFi. Select to switch it on. Wait till you see what connections are in the air. Select the one you want to connect to then, when asked, fill in the password and press connect.

That is all.

I how can i connect to the internet by uesing my nigbor internet

First of all,you should have your neighbour permision. Then you'll need the security key for his/her
wifi/router. Go to the DS menu, choose system settings and then Internet. Select advanced set up, choose a connection and search for an access point. You should be able to find your neighbours wifi in the list. If you don't know which one it is, ask your neighbour. Enter the security key and you should be connected. However, if your connecting from your house, the connection may be slow or the signal may too weak to connect at all, which means you'll have to get closer.

I am picking up wi-fi but do not connect to the internet

Make sure the signal is strong enough. When you want to connect to internet, your device will ask you to choose connection source, choose your Wifi connection, not from broadband.
Hope this help.

When I log on to my I- Pad I get a message box asking me if I would like to connect to a wi-fi connection -- usually an apple or a " customer" site. It then asks for my "password" but...

The iPad will ask you if you want to join WiFi networks it finds. You can only join ones that you have the login details for, or commercial ones that you have paid for (such as btopenzone). If you can use the internet anyway, just ignore them,
Hope that helped!
