My iPod touch is connected to wifi, but it wont let me access the internet or iTunes saying "cannot connect to server". Thanks, Dan

the most likely issue is that your wifi router is not connecte to the internet. in order to solve this try calling your internet provider and asking them to fix your router.

Wont connect to internet

To connect to the internet using wifi on the iPod touch, just follow the following steps:
Firstly, you should be in a wifi zone(an area where you can access wifi) or if you want to use it at your house with your residential internet connection, just get yourself a wifi router(shouldn’t cost more than $50-60) and configure it with your residential internet Once you are in a wifi zone, on your iPod touch, go to:
Settings > Wifi > Turn your wifi ON > Select a wifi network > Key in the WEP(only if asked for) > Connect
Once you’re done with this, you should get the IP settings and be able to surf the internet with no problem.
Note: At times when you’re too far away from the wireless router or a big thick brick wall is separating you and the wifi router, your iPod might show the network as available and you would also be able to connect to it, but surfing the internet using it would become a problem. If this happens to you, don’t worry, just move closer to the wifi router and it shouldn’t pose any other problems. Happy Surfing!

I try to join my network no lock nothing it will have full bars perfect signal and yet it says 'Unable to join the network ''linksys''. word for word

Your WiFi router may be configured to not allow your iPod Touch to connect to it. This is done by specifying a list of "MAC addresses" that can connect to the router.

Cant connect ipod touch to wifi

try updating the firmware to 2.2. if that does not work.
You may have to reset your Modem + Wifi Router

In my case, if I bring a new device home, my router won't allow it to connect because it is not recognize. Unplug both router and modem, plug them back ( router 1st ) and try again.

This issue never happens to me at home now but it still happens when I go out to bars or restaurant that offers wifi.... Turning off and on the wifi in your ipod touch a couple times usually fixes it.

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.

Ipod touch interent

you may be showing wireless signal but not hooked up to the network. Go to Setting and click on Wifi make sure the switch is on and you show an available wireless network.
you will have to enter the password for your network which is the wep key for your wireless router.
should be on the bottom label of the router.
once you do these things you should get connected.

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!

My new i-touch will not connect to the internet via the wireless network in my house.

make sure you have your wifi turned on, on the ipod touch itself and if you have a password on your router enter on your ipod when it pops up

Do i need to be in a wifi area to get wifi on my ipod touch?

Yes, you definitely need to be in range of a Wireless router. I wish Wi-Fi was like phone service where you can get it anywhere you go, but that's not the case.
