    I have wifi selected on the itouch but it won't connect to the internet.

  • leahcouture Dec 26, 2008

    it says im connected to a network.

    but i go online, and it says "safari cant open this page because it cant find he server."

    yet on my lap top my internet works fine.

    i tried resetting it so many times and its still not working..


  • HiApple Dec 27, 2008

    same problem as everyone here. It says it is connected, shows that the wifi bars work and once in a while it will say that the server is not responding after saying that the safari or whatever application I am using cannot connect to the internet several times. It is very annoying. thinking of returning it.

  • HolyMolyACow Dec 27, 2008

    I am also having the same problem as most of you guys out there. I connect to my network, then I open up Safari and do a random Google search. The same message pops up;

    Canot Open Page

    Safari cannot open the page because it is not connected to the internet.

    Does anyone know the "remedy" to this problem? As I am one of the later replyers to this thread.

    I have the same problem...cannot connect to internet although wifi is connected and it is connected to the correct network.  Have even restored the itouch to the original settings and still doesn't work.  It worked when I first received it on Christmas but not since then.

Well i finally fixed it, about 2 months ago.
The problem was that when I "connected" to the wireless network, it did not automatically obtain my Router Ip adress or DNS address. But now i have another problem; around every 24 hours I have to restart my router (going to the router web page and saving the settings, which reboots the router(s)). Is there a known fix to this?

After trying everything repeatedly to get my Itouch to connect to the internet I ended up taking it to the Apple Store and they determined that it was non-functioning.  They are sending me a new one.  I wish I had done that sooner.

Your iTouch needs to be connected first to a wireless network before you can go online. Once it's connected to a wireless network, it should receive a valid IP address and DNS to get you connected to the Internet.

You may go to this link for troubleshooting wireless connections on iTouch.

I would try reseting the router if it is yours that you are trying to get on. Then make sure all the setting inside the router are set to default. you can access these by typing or then admin admin. Your ipod touch should be set to default setting also (DHCP and HTTP Proxy off)

Apple ipod itouch connection to wireless internet

don't let the iTouch connect to the wi-fi network it detected automatically - try setting up a new wi-fi network from scratch.
the setup screens will ask for network name (the SSID) the security protocol (probably WPA-PSK if you are having all this trouble) and the password (pre shared key)

should be all you need - good luck

Cannot connect to the Internet

From the available networks that you can see, select your own wireless network name or SSID first. If the SSID is secured (one with a lock symbol), you should enter the password to connect to the SSID. Once you are connected, try connecting to the Internet.

You may go to this website for troubleshooting wireless connection problems with the iTouch.

Connections problems

I had that problem in the beginning with my iTouch.
Have you checked your IP address?
Try opening settings, then open Wi-Fi, then touch the blue circle with the arrow in it that's next to your Wi-Fi router's name.
Once you're looking at a screen with your network's name at the top and your iTouch's IP address in the middle, scroll to the bottom of the page and touch "Renew Lease", then confirm by doing it again on the popup.
Now, scroll back to the top of the page and wait a moment. You should see the IP address go blank and then a new number should appear.
Hopefully you're online, check by opening App Store or Safari.
If not...
Turn off your iTouch competely (hold the lock/power button until the "slide to power off" slider pops up, then slide it).
Next, turn off your Wi-Fi router and modem.
Wait 5 full minutes.
Turn on your modem, wait 2 full minutes.
Turn on your Wi-Fi router, wait 2 full minutes.
Turn on your iTouch.
If all that doesn't work, call Apple Care... 1.800.692.7753
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me.
