Itouch wifi issues

I got my i-touch for Christmas. It's been working with the wifi since then. Early this morning (about 1 AM) it suddenly stopped working. I've tried different DNS, IP addresses, etc. I've spent hours trying to figure out how to fix it, and I have no idea. Usually, I'm pretty good with technical stuff, but this is insane. Why won't it work? Why did it all of a sudden stop? When I say suddenly, that's exactly what I mean. It had just loaded the google page and justas it got done loading the "can't find server" message appeared.

  • vicknicole Feb 05, 2009

    I'm having a similar problem. My iTouch has been working on my home's WiFi and I was on the internet one night just fine and the next day it kept telling me cant find server. I went to my WiFi settings on the iTouch and it does detect my house's Wifi but it wont let me connect. Now my brother's iTouch gets the internet just fine. It shows it's picking up full signal and it does successfully connect. Mine wont. It's been a couple days since that day and is still not working. Does anyone know what's wrong?

Turn off touch then back on, then go to settings and press forget network then that network should reappear and select it and it should work.

Go to and press "Chat" button on the Left side. Then, you will be connected to an apple expert service operator in less than 30 seconds. ask him all the questions. He will most likely solve your problems. I hope this will solve your problems...

If you had a sudden disconnect from your Wi-Fi, the odds are that the Router had a hick up or a power glitch. Before you start just trying anything, go to and type in your problem and see what the How To articles tell you to do. If you have had the iPod less than a year, call them for telephone tech support. If not, you can pay them a one time fee of $29 and they will suss out your issue and work toward a resolution for you. You can get a manual online at The one for the Touch is 147 pages, so they are downloaded as PDF file. Save and keep. You will find Wi-Fi connection there also.

Go to the wifi settings and the network your connected on and hit "forget this network" then turn off wifi. Reconnect yourself to the network and turn wifi on just like you did the first time.

I had the same problem with my Touch, I ended up setting a Static IP address with all other settings and it worked again. However when I tried DHCP again it wouldn't work.

Very Confusing

Yesterday I went to the library where they have wifi so I could download new apps to my itouch and it worked great then today Im connected to wifi and it wont let me connect to anything that is internet...

Try turning wi/fi off, power down, power back on, and then turn wi/fi back on.  Also, install the new software update for this thing (3.1.2) to address wi/fi issues.

Itouch connect to wifi issue

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."
