I recently installed a Belkin F5D8233-4 router and it installed easily, and my I pod Touch connected through wifi. When I added security through the router set up, I can no longer connect the I pod. I have tried the various settings, but no luck with the router as a secure network. When I change the settings to un-secured, I touch works again. I assume it is a problem getting both settings right, but so far its been frustrating. Thanks

Re: Belkin F5D8233-4 router & I pod touch wifi
What I would try is while the wifi is unsecure go on the computer and open up the browser you are using, on your router the default ip address is 192.168.2.1
type the router default ip address in the browser where you would normally type a web address www.google.com
Logging into the Router You will see the Router’s home page in your browser window. The home page is visible to any user who wants to see it. To make any changes to the Router’s settings, you have to log in. Clicking the “Login” button or clicking on any one of the links on the home page will take you to the login screen. The Router ships with no password entered. In the login screen, leave the password blank and click the “Submit” button to log in. Configuring the Wireless Network Settings The “Wireless” tab lets you make changes to the wireless network settings. From this tab you can make changes to the wireless network name or Service Set Identifier (SSID), operating channel, encryption security settings, and configure the Router to be used as an access point. Setting up an Allow Access List 1. Select the “Allow” radio button (1) to begin setting up a list of computers allowed to connect to the wireless network. 2. Next, in the “MAC Address” field that is blank (3), type in the MAC address of the wireless computer you want to be able to access the wireless network, then click “<<Add” (4). 3. Continue to do this until all of the computers you want to add have been entered. 4. Click “Apply Changes” (5) to finish.
this will allow only the wireless device you select to access your router.

Yes you need wireless router to use wifi in ipod touch or on laptop. Connect
your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with
following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or
http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access
it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your
router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type
user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you
can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to
access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press
RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all
settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method.
Then click on wireless and enable it.
click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code
password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and
restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me
know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
You have to allow these device to connect via MAC address ( Media Access Control) or set an IP. This is done in the router. Check your router instructions for game settings. Setting the router firewall game allowance or device is possibly where you are have an issue.
If your Ipod touch will not 'find' your Belkin N router - or it did and then vanished forever try this- it worked for me. 1.Turn wifi off on your computer, ensure you have the latest firmware on your router,reset the router to factory default.Do this using a wired connection from the admin page. 2. Change the SSID name from what it was previously say from Belkin xyz to my router. 3. Power down the router wait about 30 seconds then power it back up. 4. As you reset to factory setting you will need to put in your internet access info again - do this from the admin page. Also set up your security at the same time. 5. Restart the router from the admin page. 6. Unplug wired connection start wifi and connect to your computer -make sure that you have full internet access from you computer - dont forget you need to connect to the newly renamed router. 7. Take ipod and make sure wifi is off. 8. Clear network settings. 9.Turn wifi on and it should find your newly renaned router - join and enter your pass key.
Why it does it I have no idea neither do Belkin or Apple but it worked for me - a trial and error solution !
