Re: netgear 834

Do ur self a favor.... disable the security on ur router.

user :admin
password: password

you can change ur user name and password to lock out ur neighbor. But you don't need to enable WEP OR WPA.

doing this should take care of ur ipod touch connection.

I cant get my ipod hooked up to my roter and wii

This is first assuming you are talking about an IPOD Touch. You first have to have wireless connectivity. Once you have wifi go to:

1. Touch Settings

2. Touch Wifi

3. Turn your Wifi ON

4. Select a Wifi network

5. Enter the WEP Key you have created on your router (assuming you have secured your network).

6. Hit Connect

Where is my WEP key

Take a notebook or desktop computer, and connect it to the router.
Access the router's built-in web-server, and query or set the WEP
(Wired-Equivalent Protocol) key.

Then, on the iPod Touch, enter the value of the key.

Connecting my ipod touch to my wireless router through wi fi


Check for the password on the router configuration page to make sure tat you are using the correct one:

1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router usually else try
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'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the Key that has a black dot before it.
This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the routers' wireless network.
Enter the same password on IPOD to connect to the wireless network.

Rate it,if it helps.

I have an iPod Touch and I have been trying hopelssly to connect to the wifi. I have a BT Voyager 2110 router. I have been putting in the right password and it even says I am connected as it has a tick...

Well... since you said PLEASE help!

So what is the IP Address that the iPod Touch gets? Does it match with what range the BT gives out?

Does anything else connect through that router successfully?

You might try changing the WEP, WPA, WPA2 that you are using ... see if that helps the iPod touch to connect. I've seen where certain computers, etc. do not like WPA or WPA2 or certain passwords or key codes.

Ipod touch

verify wireless settings in your router. Check if the security enabled in your router is already supported by your IPod touch. Otherwise, set the wireless security of the router to a mode that is supported by your IPod touch.

Netgear wgr614uk wep code

If you are the origional owner of the router, then you had set the WEP key, which is a password meant to prevent others from stealing your internet. If you still cant do it, Go to your routers configuration and restore it to factory settings. Then you can set your own WEP Tkip style passcode and connect the Wii wirelessly and correctly. For further help, just ask me.

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 :)
