I bought a ipod touch this week. When i log onto the internet function the ipod does not display the web site home page although the ipod indicates that it is picking up the wireless signal being transmitted by the router. I know the problem has to be at my home becausse the ipod works properly at the store and it was working at two different friends home. Both of these persons have linksys router. I acquired this router when I subscribe to my phone company's DSL service. My phone company is verizon. They provided me with the router and i have been unable to reach anyone in their tech dept. When I check the settings on the ipod it shows the following ip address and subnet mask #
IP: 169.254.215. 210
I have only one computer connected in my house. It is a HP laptop an dv6244.
One thing that i think i need to know is, if there is some type of internal password to change these setting???
I came upon this web site after
If some one has some possible solutions i would be very thankyou.
my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
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?

A Mac or a PC with a USB 2.0 port and one of the following operating systems:
Mac OS X version 10.4.10 or later
Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later, Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate edition.
iTunes 7.6 or later, available at www.apple.com/itunes
iTunes Store account (to purchase music over Wi-Fi)
An Internet connection
Before you can use any of the iPod touch features, you must use iTunes to set up iPod touch. You can also register iPod touch and create an iTunes Store account.
Download and install the latest version of iTunes from www.apple.com/itunes.
Connect iPod touch to a USB 2.0 port on your Mac or PC using the included cable. The USB port on most keyboards doesn’t provide enough power. Unless your keyboard has a high-powered USB 2.0 port, you must connect iPod touch to a USB 2.0 port on your computer
Follow the onscreen instructions in iTunes to set up iPod touch and sync your music, video, photos, and other content. Your computer must be connected to the Internet. By default, iTunes automatically syncs all songs and videos in your iTunes library to iPod touch. If you have more content in your library than will fit on iPod touch, iTunes alerts you that it can’t sync your content. You’ll need to use iTunes to select some of your songs, videos, and other content to sync.
When you get back to France, you'll need sync it with your PC. Download the latest version of iTunes then sync your iPod with your computer.
when you set up your home internet, it comes with a password. you might have it written down somewhere, and if not, most routers will have a utilities site where you can log in and discover (or re-discover) your router's password.
hope this helps ;-)
