    if it was my wi fi I would set up the WPA encryption on the wireless router. go to msdos prompt type in ipconfig and note ip address usually default gateway. 192.168.0.1 or it might be 10.0.0.1 put this into browser address and find out password for wifi router. may be blank otherwise check with where you got it from as to what the password might be. might be able to find it on google by "model number default password" an added security measure is not to broadcast ssid in router settings . WEP 128 or WPA usually in security option in router settings

Note the wpa or wep key code write it down as you will need it to access wi fi for all wanted devices. Also you may wish to set an access password on the router.

How to Connect my Apple iPod Touch 8 GB to Internet


<p>Apple iPod touch is a touch screen version of its popular iPod device, similar in appearance and function of the iPhone. Like the iPhone, iPod touch is able to access the Internet, although by different means. While the iPhone usually connect to the Internet via a wireless network operator's mobile data, the only way to connect to the Internet in an 8 GB iPod Touch is the device to use built-in wireless adapter. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Get references to a wireless network nearby, if you are not home or do not have access to a public network without a password. If you're in a cafe, for example, ask the cashier to use the network password and you should use to connect. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Tap your iPod Touch "Settings" icon and "Wi-Fi." If a blue button "off" appears next to the Wi-Fi, tap it on the wireless adapter to connect the device. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Scroll through the list of wireless networks will appear, and then tap corresponding to your network. Enter a password - if the network requires - and tap "Connect" to your connection to the Internet iPod touch 8 GB. <br />

Wireless network Not working


Follow following step to trouble shoot your WLAN connection.
1 ) If you do not get any Radio signal
Check if your radio device is working: go to Control Panel / Network Connections.
You see all your Networking devices: check the list, if something missed you have to reinstall it.
Check the list if a device is disabled you have to enable it BEFORE using (right click on device to get your options: only administrators can modify properties).
If Radio device is disable check your PC user manual to know HOW TO enable it.
IF your PC has a PHYSICAL SWITCH locate it and operate.
Some examples of Radio switches:
on Acer Aspire first on top left 9ce1479.gif:
6b1ea1e.jpg

On Other PC you have to find and activate your switch
If your Radio feature is activated you can right click your network device in Control Panel / Network Connections. and select "View Available Wireless Network" a list of networks in range will be shown.
NOTE: If you get a warning telling "Windows cannot configure...." another program is managing your network device, find it and run it according to documentation.
In network list You will see your network (SSID) together with every other WLAN:
  • a) if your router is broadcasting the SSID
  • b) if your radio device is on same WLAN standard (A or B or G or N) as your Access Point (router) on same country frequency specs (Europe and North America use different radio channels)
  • 3) if no physical obstacle or interference is not blocking the signal: microwave oven, cordless, some remotes are source of strong interference: try changing your position to improve reception if signal is weak.
2 ) If you do not browse Internet
Radio signal strength has no meaning with networking capability.
  • Check your networking capability: connect to your router using a LAN cable and BE SURE you can browse from same PC you want connect wireless.
  • To connect to your Wlan you must use same security protocol: WEP or WPA (recommanded)
  • The Network key must be according to security protocol used: key for WEP or pass-phrase for WPA
  • If you missed actual network standard you have to connect to router as admin and create a new one to be used
  • If your router used a access list of allowed devices (using Devices MAC address) to protect your network, be sure to add your new PC network adapter MAC address to the list.
If you have problem with your router check if Internet is working connecting your modem to your workstation.
If you can browse you have to configure your router to match your ISP requirement.
That's all from PatEmi

Can't connect to internet,Computer says i am but can't browse still


Wireless Zero Configuration was first introduced with Windows XP. In Windows Vista it was renamed to "WLAN AutoConfig".
Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC) or WLAN AutoConfig is a service included with modern versions of Microsoft Windows that dynamically selects a wireless network to connect to base on a user's preferences and various settings. This can be used instead (or in the absence) of a wireless network utility from the manufacturer of a computer's wireless networking device.
To join a wireless network:
  1. Open the Start menu and click Control Panel.
  2. In the Control Panel Home window, click View network status and tasks.
If you are using Classic View, double- click Network and Sharing Center
Click Connect to a network.
Select your network from the list and click Connect.
If security is enabled on the network, you will be asked to type your network security key or passphrase for your AP/router. After typing security key, click Connect.
and keep follows the prompt.
