Re: itouch says connected to router but not to internet
I had exactly the same problem with a brand new 3rd gen iTouch. It showed it was connected to the network but wouldn't access anything (invalid argument etc). I tried everything but no joy. Eventually I fixed it by changing the router's encryption from WEP to WPA2-PSK. Fixed it like magic. Where there had been no router or DNA data before, they were suddenly filled in. The key was different but was still on the bottom of the router. I had to re-enter the key on my wireless laptop but that was a small price.
You can get into the router set-up page through your web browser. I found a guide on You Tube.

First you have to configure the router. to configure connect the patch cable to your laptop, connect the other end to the #4 ethernet slot of the router. Open a internet web browser type at the address bar the IP address 192.168.1.1 the router will open and will as for user ID admin Password is admin or password. You can change the password of the router, SSID and security enable and use passphrase or key. I hope this information will help you solve the problem. Have a Happy New Year...
first tell me whats your security type if its wpa -> try changing with 64 bit wep make up 10 digit numbers.. once you do this click under wireless ->channel ssid & change the ssid & disabled wifi protected set up
For some 2wire device you will find the wireless password underneath it its commonly a combination of 10 digit there should be a sticker on the 2wire and look for that 10 digit code if you cannot find it there contact your Internet Provider so the can provide you that wireless key.......
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.
WiFi is not based on your computer, it is based on what you have connected to your internet modem. If you want WiFi then you will need a router that provides WiFi transmission. These routers also have standard ports to connect your equipment that doesn't support WiFi. Most Laptop computers sold now a days have wireless modems intergrated so if you upgrade your router you dont have to worry about having to buy a bunch of other things.
Could you be more specific with what the issue is? Home Wifi? Router type? WEP or MAC filtering enabled? Did you already configure your Wifi settings:"If the network requires a password, tap Security, tap the type of security the network uses, and enter the password."
Go to your computer and type in 192.168.1.1 it should take you to your router's main menu. Then search for something like Wireless Conection or Wireless Config, it should then tell you your roouter's name and password.
I finally discovered the problem. I have a Linksys wireless
router, so when I tried to log on with my iTouch, I got the
message "Unable to join network "my network name" when
I typed in my password. One day, after many trys, I tried
typing in the network security key for my router, and Voila,
it worked. For some unknown reason (to me), the iTouch
recognizes the the network security key as the password.
