Re: wifi network


Ok, I had this situation happen to me a few times. I usually check if the WEP key for the network is correct, reset the router and then I go on the iPod, tap settings, tap wifi, tap on the arrow of the network you are using (on the right) and click RENEW LEASE.

Hope this helped!

Re: wifi network

Make sure you have a wireless home network, that usually involves a wireless router. Once you have set up your wireless home network, then open up settings in your itouch, then click wifi, then wait until a list shows up with the name of your network, then press it and if security is enabled enter the password, and voila.

I have an ipod touch 8gb 1st generation... There's an icon on the home screen for youtube that came already on the ipod. Every time I click the youtube icon it says "cannot connect to youtube"...

Ensure your Wifi settings are configured correctly. Try loading different YouTube videos. If the problems till persists, try restoring your iPod to its original factory settings. To do this, right click your iPod in your iTunes Devices List and select the option to Restore.

I just bought an ipod touch and I thought it was already set up for internet. How do I do that?

No, iPod touch have no way of connecting to the internet other than wifi (unlike iPhone that has 3G).
This means that there must be wifi signal around you before you can browse the web or receive email.

To check for available networks around you, on your iPod touch, go to Settings > Wi-Fi, then select the network that you want to use.

Often times, wifi networks are secured by a password, meaning, you need to ask permission to the owner of that signal to gain access. In a cefe for example, you can gain access to their secured network by simply asking the person in the counter.

Wifi is connected on ipod touch 8gb and has the latest update and still can not get online service keeps saying to require vpn information

when you go to settings, and general you will see a wifi setting on top is the wifi network switch, move it to "ON" with your finger.
below that is a brower push tap and set to push.
below that is your network, tap and join when a window pops up asking for your network passcode, look at your router label and enter the WEP code into your ipod.
close the settings and go back to the front, you should see your network in the upper left of the screen. it will show a signal cone with lines and what type of network speed.
If you have anymore issues, let me know and I will help more.

Hi there,

You shouldn't need to change the Address or DNS.

On your wireless router, make sure of your Firewall settings (if there is any form of blocking) and it's security settings (eg, network name, password and security type etc). Once you are sure of it's settings, on the iPod go to Settings, then Wifi. In there turn off then on wifi. Allow it to scan then if it comes up with your network, select it then type in the password when requested and tap Join. If it doesn't show you need to enter it manually. To do this tap on Other then type in the Network name. It should now request a password (if one is set) and you are then connected indicated by the wifi logo in the status bar.

For more info refer to your ipod touch manual pages 90-91.

All the best.
