Cannot get my itouch to connect to internet

Just purchased 16 g itouch it will download from the itunes store but I am unable to get it to connect to the internet..sometimes it asks for the password i have given my links router key plus other varriations to no avail.I have a links router wireless G WRT54G. I am not very tech savy but trying to learn..my main goal with this is to be able to download e-books as I love to read. I have been able to download the e-reader format however not being able to get onto the internet prevents me from getting to the specific sites.I would be grateful for any suggestions just keep in mind that I am your basic non-geek in training! oh sometimes when I try to get on it asks for a password as stated none tried accepted other times for dhcp or boot or static? tried dhcp but then left withip,subnet etcthen there is http proxy do i put it on manual..auto.and sometimes it asks for url not sure where to get all of these I think that I have some of the information but feel like I am playing the lottery trying to put in the winning combination. Again remember please simple directions for this dyslexic non geek thank you in advance for any and all help

I had the same problem.  Go to settings and see which networks show up with a dark signal icon (the ones that look like black fans). The one's that are gray are not available.  Next see if the dark signal has a lock in front of it.  If so, pick the one that doesn't.  The locked ones require password access.  On my iPod Touch, only the apple network had a dark signal icon without a lock.  I chose it and have been online since.

How to install or put games in apple itouch


Well first you need to have an account with apple and depending on how you want to install it, if its from either the ipod or your itunes you will have to download the game from the app store on the ipod and once you download it will install itself. To do it from the ipod you will need wireless internet and your ipod will have to connect to your router. If you do if from itunes you will download the app from the itunes store and sync it to your ipod when you plug it in.
Hope this helps.

How to downoad games on ipod topuch version 1.1.5


Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

You need to download iTunes and update your iTouch to the latest version then you need to create an iTunes store account too. After doing that, go to the itunes store link on your itouch and choose the apps/games that you want to download.

I hope this helps. Thanks and good day.

Trying to download the aim APP on my itouch?


I'm pretty sure it was asking for your iTunes password. Have you created an iTunes account yet? You need that account to download pretty much everything from the iTunes store, including free apps like AIM. Signing up for the account is pretty easy. Follow this link:

Hope this works. Good luck!

Downloading applications to ipod touch


Hi,   The easiest way to download to your iTouch is directly to your iTouch via the Apple Store. The Apple Store icon is already on your iTouch. Just make sure you are near an internet connection via Airport or Wi Fi. Click on "Download" on the selected app, and then wait a couple of seconds. Your iTouch will indicate when the download is done and the app is installed. You will see the new icon on your your screen page.
  If you install from your computer, you will have to plug your iTouch into the computer and use the  iTunes app to control what you download. 
  I hope that helps.   Shari Dyer

Itunes does not recognize my itouch please help


Okay well the only way you can resolve your problem is by taking your iPod to your local Apple store they should do a swap. Sounds like there is a firmware fault.
