I have no problem with my home wifi, but when I take my Ipod outside where there is a wireless signal, it will not update my email or connect to safari. How do I get it to work on free wireless???? I've tried renewing the lease, but it does not work.

Re: Ipod Touch does not work in outside wifi areas.
There's no reason your iPod Touch shouldn't work with any free WiFi network. BUT, it's not enough for the network to not require a password ... some people configure their wireless routers to only accept connections from known devices (via a process called "MAC filtering").
Try an area where there are a lot of unprotected (no password) WiFi networks to test. The parking lot of any apartment building complex is a good place for this.

Go into settings and look at the wireless section. Select the wireless connection that you normally use and try to connect. Tell us what happens from there.
Some possible causes might be:
- The password for the wireless router in your home network may have changed.
- If your home wireless router has recently been replaced, or if the iPod is trying to connect to an old or outdated connection, you may need to remove any non-working connections shown in settings and/or create a new connection to your home wireless router.
Re-creating the connection to your wireless router and making sure you have the correct password is the first step to solving this. If that doesn't help, give us more details on what happens when you try to connect (from within Settings).

You have to be in a "Wifi" area, in other words some place that offers wireless Wifi.
Once there then turn on your Ipod, go to settings, and click on the Wifi name that you are trying to hook to that is offered where you are at.

In my case, I keep getting endlessly prompted to enter my passcode for my wireless router. I found that if I reboot the iTouch - hold down the top power button and slide the "slide to power off". Wait for it to finish powering off and then power it back on by holding the same button. When it comes back up it automatically connects to my home network again. Seems to happen every time I connect to an outside wifi network and then return home... I wish I knew WHY it does this - I suspect it has something to do with how my home wireless router is configured.
Here is a way that solved the problem for me. Downgrade the ipod touch to firmware 1.1.4. You have to put your ipod into DFU mode ('not recovery mode) and you have to have an itunes version that supports this old firmware. 7.5 oder 7.7 i think. to load your own firmware you simply hold the shift-button while you push the restore button.
After you have firmware 1.1.4 on your ipod touch, download the jailbreaker "Ziphone". This programm has the option to fix the "no Wifi" problem. Look in the advanced options. In my case, this was the only thing that solved the problem. I tried restoring it often but nothing worked. After Ziphone fixed your Problem, you can update the Touch to the latest firmware. Wifi was still working, at least for me
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.
