<p>Apple iPod touch Wi-Fi reception without using a computer.
The device has a built-in 802.11 Wi-Fi receiver, which means that access to the
Internet via a WiFi router that is in range. When connected to a WiFi signal on
your iPod touch, you may be prompted for a password if you must know the
password or ask the Wi-Fi to the administrator. Unsecured Wi-Fi does not
require a password. <br />
<p>1. Press the "Home" button of your iPod touch and
move the cursor to the right on the device. Enter the unlock code if you have
programmed. <br />
<p>2. Touch the "Settings" icon on the home screen of
the iPod touch Settings menu. <br />
<p>3. Play the "Wi-Fi" Network access to the names of
all upcoming Wi-Fi to see. <br />
<p>4. Tap the name of a Wi-Fi to connect. If the network requires
a password, you will be prompted to enter the password. <br />
<p>5. Touch "Join" to complete the connection. Now
you can use any Internet-related programs on your iPod touch. <br />
No, iPod touch have no way of connecting to the internet other than wifi (unlike iPhone that has 3G).
This means that there must be wifi signal around you before you can browse the web or receive email.
To check for available networks around you, on your iPod touch, go to Settings > Wi-Fi, then select the network that you want to use.
Often times, wifi networks are secured by a password, meaning, you need to ask permission to the owner of that signal to gain access. In a cefe for example, you can gain access to their secured network by simply asking the person in the counter.
This problem appears most in ZyXEL routers and NETGEAR routers.
On those routers with the original firmware, only ONE computer has internet access at any given time.
So, when your laptop is on you wi-fi, the iPod cannot access the internet.
When the iPod has internet, the laptop cant.
Some troubleshooting techniques for this problem would be to connect to another network, maybe your neighbor's (one without a password) and connect back to your network, it could also be a problem with your router/modem even though it shows a full signal, try reconnecting your router or modem.. Whether this works or not, try using the "Easy Wi-Fi" app, its free, download it from the app store, and set it up, it could help in getting a signal or maintaining it. This is a common issue, and sometimes with the ipod touch it may connect and disconnect from the internet. If your computers or other devices are having the same problem you may want to consult your service provider. Hope I helped
I would make sure your firmware is 100% up to date via itunes. And if its not update it to the latest version, it might be a 10 dollar fee or so to update it, but its well worth it and that will hopefully fix your problem.
First and foremost: are you in a WiFi area? The iPod touch can only access the internet when it's able to connect to a WiFi network. In order to browse availible networks where you are follow this:
And under "Choose a network" it will come up with a list of networks you can access. Just click on one, hopefully yours!
And make sure that Wi-Fi's on/off button is switched to "On".
iPod Touch has internet features, where as iPod classic can't.
You have to be near a WiFi signal to use the iPod Touch internet
features, either your own or one provided for free locally in a public
place (such as a library, cafe, coffeeshop, etc.) With an iPhone, when
you have an activated service plan it comes with AT&T's Edge
Internet network, and you can always access the full internet anywhere
and everywhere Edge is available, which is most places. It's slow, but
it gets the job done for me... ;-))
