Most of the linksys router has a manual. Check your manual and read to wireless configuration. Right there you can change the password. First step is to open a internet browser like internet explorer, mozilla firefox or google chrome etc. then on the address bar you will type http://192.168.0.1 then enter or follow the instruction on your manual and the page will ask you for username and password. Oftentimes the username is admin and password is none then press enter.

In case you do not what the password is, you may reset the button on the behind of the router by pressing the small hole using some hard stick or a ballpen for about 10 seconds to reset the settings on your linksys router. Then after resetting configure your password so that others will not connect directly to your wireless router.


Have a nice day.

    After resetting the linksys router, turn it off for about 5 seconds and turn it on again and wait for 3 minutes and configure your wireless router and put password so that your neighbors or other that has a wireless devices attempt to connect from your wireless connection can not connect because you have the security.

Wi-Fi Functionality
  1. Connects over the last Wi-Fi network you used that's available.
  2. If no Wi-Fi networks you've used are available, iPod touch will scan for Wi-Fi networks and show a list of Wi-Fi networks in range. Tap a network and, if necessary, enter the password to join. Networks that require a password show a lock icon (307189_1.jpg) next to them.
  3. Option to manually enter your Wi-Fi network name/SSID (if the Wi-Fi network is configured not to broadcast or be displayed to the public). If necessary, enter the password to join.
When iPod touch is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon (307189_2.jpg) in the status bar at the top of the screen shows connection strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the connection.
Wi-Fi Settings
  1. Turn Wi-Fi on or off.
    Choose Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi on or off.
  2. Set iPod touch to ask if you want to join a new Wi-Fi network.
    When you are trying to access the Internet, by using Safari or YouTube for example, and you are not in range of a Wi-Fi network you have previously used, this option tells iPod touch to look for another network. iPod touch will display a list of all available Wi-Fi networks that you can choose from. Networks that require a password appear with a lock icon (307189_1.jpg).

    If "Ask to Join Networks" is turned off, you must manually join a network to connect to the Internet when a previously used network is unavailable.

    Choose Wi-Fi and turn "Ask to Join Networks" on or off. If you turn "Ask to Join Networks" off, you must join new networks manually.
  3. Join a Wi-Fi network manually.
    Choose Wi-Fi, wait a moment as iPod touch detects networks in range, then choose a network. If necessary, enter a password and tap Join. Networks that require a password appear with a lock icon.
  4. Make iPod touch forget a network, so that the device doesn't join it automatically. Choose Wi-Fi and tap the arrow (307189_3.jpg) next to a network you've joined before. Then tap "Forget this Network."
  5. Connect to a closed Wi-Fi network (an available Wi-Fi network that isn't shown in the list of scanned networks).
    Choose Wi-Fi, then tap Other and enter the network name. If the network requires a password, choose Security, tap the type of security the network uses, and enter the password. You must already know the network name, password, and security type to connect to a closed network. Some Wi-Fi networks may require you to enter or adjust additional settings, such as a client ID or static IP address. Ask the network administrator which settings to use.
  6. Adjust settings to connect to a Wi-Fi network
    Choose Wi-Fi, then tap the arrow (307189_3.jpg) next to a network.

How to Unlock Addresses on your iPod Wi-Fi


<p>The iPod touch has a built-in wireless network adapter that allows you to join Wi-Fi networks; however, in some cases the wireless access point to implement a Wi-Fi network can be configured to an iPod touch join the network. You can configure the access point so that it no longer blocks the iPod from the wireless network. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Tap "Settings," then "General" on the iPod touch. Touch "About" then scroll down to "Wi-Fi address." Make a note of the 12-digit hexadecimal number listed under that title, which is the address of Medium Access Control encoded in iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect your computer to a numbered port on the back of the wireless router using an Ethernet cable. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Log on to the computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Start a Web browser on your computer. Directly to the router's configuration utility. The tool is listening on a specific web address that depends on the router. For example, if your router is a Linksys WRT54GS, navigate to the address "192.168.1.1". <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Open the configuration menu for the MAC address filtering. For example, in a WRT54GS, click on "Wireless" then "Wireless MAC Filter". <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Remove the iPod's MAC address in the list of prohibitions aimed at the router's configuration utility. For example, in a WRT54GS, click "Edit MAC Filter List". A new window will appear. Double-click the field that the iPod has the MAC address, then press "Backspace" to make the contents of the field. Click "Save Settings". The window is closed. Click "Save Settings" in the main browser window. At this point, your router will be configured for iPod touch for the network. <br />

Prehaps there's a problem with the router itself. You could try to turn off the Wi-Fi completly and then turn it on again. I had the same problem, but then I turned off the Wi-Fi and turned it on again, and it worked for me! Hope that I helped!

Can't connect my Ipod touch to my router?


You must be sure to what router you are trying to connect. I understand you have a ZyXel and a linksys. You must have 2 wireless networks. Your wireless network must be secured, so you just have to use the correct password. I need more details. Try this http://technicalsupport.blog.friendster.com
