    I'm having a similar problem. I'm able to access internet at home, but I've tried in places where it shows I'm connected and the signal is strong but the iPod Touch comes up with an error message such as "can't find server".

Will not allow me to connect using an ipod touch.

My IPaq wireless has an icon that lets me log into other networks by just selecting them and putting in the password or no password if it's an open network.

I Googled the Ipod touch instructions and found a MAC blogger with the specific instructions here

If you can't login because you don't see the router, try logging into the router from a computer connected to it and make sure the wireless is turned on and broadcasting an SSID. If you have a WEP password set, you will be able to read it under the Wireless Basic Wireless Settings tab. If you need specific help with the WRT, you may visit the Linksys site. Here's a link to connecting your wireless device to a Linksys product

or, here's a manual where you can start at page 13,0.pdf

Bad Signal

Try connecting to a different router, at a Starbucks or other "free wi-fi" location. If you get more "bars", your iPod Touch is NOT the problem.

Access the web-interface on the router, and ensure that the router is set to maximum-power of its wireless signal-strength.

Get a friend to copy the CD onto a USB memory-stick,
and install the software from the memory-stick.

Xbox live MTU failure

The reason why you're getting an MTU error is because the MTU has already reached the maximum # of packets that are being sent. To resolve it.
Access the GUI of your Linksys Router and go to the MTU settings. Set it to 1500. The lower, the better

My new itouch will not connect to my new linksys router, wireless-n gigabit router. any ideas?

Make sure that where you are with your iPod, you can get signal for the wireless. Sounds simple but you would be amazed...! Also check the router is set to something like "be visible" or "show to all devices" otherwise you will be unable to find it! Hope this helps!

Can't connect my Ipod touch to my router?

You must be sure to what router you are trying to connect. I understand you have a ZyXel and a linksys. You must have 2 wireless networks. Your wireless network must be secured, so you just have to use the correct password. I need more details. Try this

Can't connect my Ipod touch to my router?

did you setup a wireless network ? if you didnt go to control panal and then wireless network setup icon and follow instructions (select automatically provide network key option) then follow instructions and finish. once you did that, search through wifi on youf phone it should find your WNetwork and then connect and enjoy. if you want to use internet and have an ADSL modem, make sure that the modem is connected to the internet RJ45 plug on your router. and from router to PC.

good luck, i hope this helps

Hi Rob

The IP address that the iPod is showing is a "self-assigned" address meaning that it has looked around for something to give it an IP (i.e. a DHCP server) but not found anything. There could be lots of reasons for this. First, on your wireless router, is it set to broadcast its SSID? If not, the iPod can't see it. Second, is the router set to act as a DHCP server so that computers etc can be assigned an IP address and the network info needed? Third, does your router have a setting to only allow connections from specific devices, normally identified by their MAC address? If so, you'll have to check the MAC address of your iPod and add that into the list. Finally, do you have security settings such as WEP or WPA encryption on the router that you need to enter the details of into your iPod?

Connecting Ipod touch 8(GB) to Wi-fi

After fighting with this for the last couple of hours I have my ipod touch working with the netgear DG834G(v3) router. The fix is a bit odd and I am not entirely sure why it works but I thought I would share and hopefully it might help you out …

First I think that the WEP encryption simply does not work between these two devices and causes some very strange behaviour – the WEP 'authentication type' setting I had on the 'wireless settings' page was set to 'shared key' – I flicked this to 'automatic' & strength to ‘128 bit’ - hit apply and finally I found I was able to connect without an error message (after inputting the correct WEP key). Unfortunately the DHCP did not work correctly after this and I kept receiving IP addresses in the range of 169.254.x.x (an internal default) rather than my networks expected 192.168.0.x range. The Ipod touch couldn’t find any DNS servers or connect to the internet.

To get round this I set the router ‘security options’ to use WPA instead (WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)) instead of WEP. Set the new WPA password at the bottom of the wireless settings page - again hit apply - and configured the ipod to use the new password and WPA PSK instead of WEP. This worked fine – although it does mean I have to change the settings on all my other wireless devices around the house!

The weird thing is that although the router isn’t using WEP encryption changing the 'authentication type' setting back to ‘shared key’ in the WEP menu breaks the WPA connection again – very odd? I blame netgear and their obviously crazy wep code :)
