Question about Apple iPod touch
Recognises my wifi but still can't connect tom safari/youtube etc
I FIXED MINE THIS MORNING!!!
try this! If your iTouch says you are connected to your network but you can't surf and you've been able to connect in the past...you have to reset your network connections on your iTouch.
Go to Settings
Go to General
Go down to Reset
Go to Reset Network Settings
It will ask for your iTouch Passcode...enter it
Then, hit the red "Reset Network Settings"
After that, go back to "Wi-Fi" in Settings...
...and connect to your network again. It might ask you for your WEP password, if it does, enter it.
The IP Address, Subnet Mask, Router and DNS fields should now have entries in them.
Hope that works for you. It worked for me!!!

Okay. Heres what you do. It works I promise!
1. Go to settings
2. Turn off WIFI connection
3. Hold down the power button until it says slide to power off
4. Turn it off
5. Once its off click the home button and while still holding down the home button plug it into itunes.
6. It will say something on your itunes page. Click okay. Then your ipod will go black.
7. Wait and then when it comes back on connect to the internet again
if it doesnt work try reseting your ipod touch
hope it helps!!!!

Okay here is what you REALLY have to do!!!!
go to google
type in "wirelesskeyview download" into the search engine
click on the first link that it shows and download it.
it's completely free and VERY helpful!
its a very short download, extract the file and put it somewhere where you won't lose it because it won't show up in your start menu.
This doesn't require any installation.
Go to where you placed the file and open it.
click on the application and it will ask you to allow/cancel the program.
your network should show automatically and WEP will show next to it in the hex column.
type what you see in the hex AS the network's password on your itouch
It worked for me!!!!!

Dumb question, but did you put in the security code of your network if it is locked? In settings, wifi networks. Seems like I had to do that.

I had same problem. Took it back to Best Buy and they could not connect to their WiFi. Conclusion--bad wireless card. Got money back because they had no replacement. Bought new one at Wal-Mart. It worked perfectly. Solution is do not putz around; return for one with wireless card that works.

If you have a Linksys router this worked for me. Go to Settings on your ITouch; Wi-Fi; Other; Security; WPA; Go back to Other Network; Type in your network Name at the top (for example mine is GSI); then go down to Password and type in the Personal Key found on the Linksys page after you logged in with your password. Once I was on the correct page I went to Wireless and then Wireless Security and you will see the Personal Key about five tabs down.

I had the same problem and resetting the connection (Solution #3) worked for me. Thanks!

I know this sounds stupid and obvious, but make sure your putting in the passcode to the wireless internet correctly, and if you are then try them in CAPS.
i know it sounds obvious but that was all my itouch needed, plus another solution is when you click on the blue arrow next to your chosen network, then look under ip address MAKE SURE THAT DHCP IS HIGHLIGHTED!

Hi I had the same problem. My sons I touch had always connected to internet no problem until last night. It seems its been a common problem. Its Fixed now.
What I did-
3. CLI8CK ON YOUR WI-FI CONNECTION ON THE ARROW TO THE LEFT.
4.FORGET THIS NETWORK
5. DISCONNECT ROUTER AND UNPLUG
9-CLICK ON YOUR WI-FI
10. under IP address click on STATIC
11. then I copied all the number details off my other iphone in the wi-fi settings ip address & Subnet Mask,& Router & DNS & Search domains
12 Go back to main screen by pressing your main button at bottom of phone.
This worked for me and was better than resetting all settings and my sone loosing his progress in games etc. Good luck!!
