Question about SMC Barricade g SMC2804WBR Wireless Router
I can no longer connect to the wireless internet that we have in our home. I use to be able to connect, but not now. What can be the problem and how can I get it resolved?
Try to power cycle the router and modem. Unplug the power of the router and modem for 30 seconds. After that power on modem first, wait for the lights to go steady then power on the router. If all the lights are solid, try to check if you can connect wireless
You can also try to reset the router. Look for RESET button at the back of your router and press it for 20 seconds, then unplug the power of the router for another 20 seconds then power it back on. Check if you can connect wireless

Tips for a great answer:
Wireless networks have become an increasingly popular way to access the Internet. Connecting to a wireless network allows you to browse the Internet without having to physically connect any cords to your computer.
Troubleshooting wireless connectivity can sometimes be confusing, because even if a wireless network is not able to bring you to any web pages, often your computer's wireless card will still connect to the wireless network that is being broadcast.
In other words, a wireless network will read "connected" even if it is not connected to the Internet.
Connect to a different wireless network. If there is an alternate wireless network within range of your computer that you legally are able to use (a free public Wi-Fi rather than your neighbor's wireless network, for instance), try connecting to it and browsing the Internet.
If the same issue occurs on the alternate wireless network, you may have an issue with your computer's wireless card or with your Internet browser.
If you are able to connect to the alternate network but still not able to connect to your own, the problem is most likely localized to the wireless network you use at home.
Reset all devices.
The great majority of Internet connection issues can be resolved by a simple reset of all the devices in your home network.
Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and unplug them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug its power cord) for a full 30 seconds.
Plug them back in and restart your computer.
Try to connect to the Internet using your wireless network after your computer has booted back up.
If the connection still fails, some further troubleshooting is required.
Bypass your wireless router.
If your computer's wireless card is connecting to your wireless network of choice yet you are still not able to access any websites, there may be a connection issue on either your modem or router.
The easiest way to locate the problem is to temporarily eliminate the router from the network. Locate the Ethernet cable that connects your modem to your router and unplug it from the router.
Plug the cable directly into one of the Ethernet ports on your computer and reset the modem in the manner described above.
Now try your Internet connection again. If there is still no Internet access, the problem is most likely with your modem or your computer; contact the technical support department of your Internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance.
If the modem goes online directly connected, your router is causing the problem and may need to be reconfigured. Contact the router manufacturer for further assistance.
Hope this helps

Touch the "Settings" icon on the home screen of the iPod touch.
Opt to have your iPod alert you when there is a new network you can join. This can be useful if you are no longer in range of a network you have previously used. To receive these messages, turn on the "Ask to Join Networks" feature.
Tell the iPod touch to "forget" a wireless network that you no longer want to use, so it will not automatically try to connect you. Under the Wi-Fi settings, tap the ">" button next to the network you want to delete and then touch "Forget this network."
Expect that some wireless networks detected by your iPod touch will ask you to sign up for a fee-based service. If this is acceptable to you, open up the Safari application from the home screen. You will be taken to a website that explains the terms of service and accepts credit card payments for wireless Internet access.
