Wi-Fi Functionality
  1. Connects over the last Wi-Fi network you used that's available.
  2. If no Wi-Fi networks you've used are available, iPod touch will scan for Wi-Fi networks and show a list of Wi-Fi networks in range. Tap a network and, if necessary, enter the password to join. Networks that require a password show a lock icon (307189_1.jpg) next to them.
  3. Option to manually enter your Wi-Fi network name/SSID (if the Wi-Fi network is configured not to broadcast or be displayed to the public). If necessary, enter the password to join.
When iPod touch is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon (307189_2.jpg) in the status bar at the top of the screen shows connection strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the connection.
Wi-Fi Settings
  1. Turn Wi-Fi on or off.
    Choose Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi on or off.
  2. Set iPod touch to ask if you want to join a new Wi-Fi network.
    When you are trying to access the Internet, by using Safari or YouTube for example, and you are not in range of a Wi-Fi network you have previously used, this option tells iPod touch to look for another network. iPod touch will display a list of all available Wi-Fi networks that you can choose from. Networks that require a password appear with a lock icon (307189_1.jpg).

    If "Ask to Join Networks" is turned off, you must manually join a network to connect to the Internet when a previously used network is unavailable.

    Choose Wi-Fi and turn "Ask to Join Networks" on or off. If you turn "Ask to Join Networks" off, you must join new networks manually.
  3. Join a Wi-Fi network manually.
    Choose Wi-Fi, wait a moment as iPod touch detects networks in range, then choose a network. If necessary, enter a password and tap Join. Networks that require a password appear with a lock icon.
  4. Make iPod touch forget a network, so that the device doesn't join it automatically. Choose Wi-Fi and tap the arrow (307189_3.jpg) next to a network you've joined before. Then tap "Forget this Network."
  5. Connect to a closed Wi-Fi network (an available Wi-Fi network that isn't shown in the list of scanned networks).
    Choose Wi-Fi, then tap Other and enter the network name. If the network requires a password, choose Security, tap the type of security the network uses, and enter the password. You must already know the network name, password, and security type to connect to a closed network. Some Wi-Fi networks may require you to enter or adjust additional settings, such as a client ID or static IP address. Ask the network administrator which settings to use.
  6. Adjust settings to connect to a Wi-Fi network
    Choose Wi-Fi, then tap the arrow (307189_3.jpg) next to a network.

How do I Get Wi-Fi on my iPod Touch if it Says No Wi-Fi


<p>One of the most useful features of the iPod Touch is the ability to use the Internet through a WiFi connection if you have a wireless home network and within range of your router, you can access the Internet via your iPod with ease. If you're in public, you can use the free wireless internet businesses such as hotels, cafes and airports. If you are not in a Wi-Fi zone, will warn you that your iPod will not be able to get online. When this happens, then you need to move to an area that has Wi-Fi <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Confirm your wireless connection is configured correctly by checking if you can get online on your home computer. If your router is not configured correctly, you will not be able to use their access to Wi-Fi with your iPod. <br /> <p>2. Go to a place where you know Wi-Fi is available. In urban areas, Wi-Fi is available in many businesses and families. Press the "Settings" icon on your iPod, click on "Wi-Fi" to search for available networks in the area. If there are none that appear, confirming the Wi-Fi icon at the top of the page is set to "On" instead of "Off". If no network can see, you're in an area where there is Wi-Fi available. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Click the name of an available Wi-Fi network and enter the correct password. Sometimes you may not be able to access the network, because you do not have the password. While companies such as pubs and hotels to their networks without protection for the enjoyment of their patrons are usually password protected networks. <br />

3. Login to the router (User Name = admin Password = password unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.

This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the routers' wireless network.

My ipod touch is connected but won't use the internet.


Your router is blocking the iPod Touch from using the wireless.  Go into your router settings (depends on your router) and find the security or firewall for the wireless page.  You will need to enter in the MAC address of the iPod Touch (found in Settings>General>About - it is labeled as Wi-Fi address).

Cannot get ipod touch to connect to wireless network


Many Wi-Fi issues can be resolved by doing the following:
Basic troubleshooting
  • Tap Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi off and then on again.
  • Verify that you are in range of your Wi-Fi router or base station.
  • Confirm that your Wi-Fi router and Cable/DSL modem are connected to power and turned on.
  • Check whether other devices (portable computers, for example) are able to connect to the Wi-Fi network and access the Internet.

No wi fi for itouch


Usually, all iPods have a WiFi chip imbedded in the device so you have to pay nothing except for your currently active Wireless internet connection. Try checking your modem and making sure it's working for starters. If it is, then go on the iPod and go to settings, then internet connections. Select a valid internet connection and it should automatically connect, given a good signal strength.

If this helped/didn't help, let me know.
