    Hi....can I ask if you have MAC address filtering enabled on your router? This is under 'Firewall' on this model. If so, try disabling it, and see if you can connect then.

    Just a suggestion to start you off - quite a few people have posted with similar issues in the last few days.

Remove the neighbor's network from the preferred network list.
add your own network in the list. If your router is old router then upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
You have connected your laptop to the router, to secure the wireless network. When you connect the laptop to the router, make sure that the wireless network connection will be disabled.
Once you change the wireless settings, enable the wireless connection and connect to your network.

Will not allow me to connect using an ipod touch.


My IPaq wireless has an icon that lets me log into other networks by just selecting them and putting in the password or no password if it's an open network.

I Googled the Ipod touch instructions and found a MAC blogger with the specific instructions here http://mac.blorge.com/2008/07/14/wi-fi-setup-how-do-i-access-the-internet-with-my-ipod-touch/

If you can't login because you don't see the router, try logging into the router from a computer connected to it and make sure the wireless is turned on and broadcasting an SSID. If you have a WEP password set, you will be able to read it under the Wireless Basic Wireless Settings tab. If you need specific help with the WRT, you may visit the Linksys site. Here's a link to connecting your wireless device to a Linksys product http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=20947

or, here's a manual where you can start at page 13 http://downloads.linksysbycisco.com/downloads/userguide/WRT160N_V10_UG_A-WEB,0.pdf

Ipod touch won't connect even after disabling security


Whenever yo connect a new wireless device to your exhisting network, you have to do 2 things, before it will work, aside fron the settings on the phone itself, you need to set the ecryption code and key to the same as the rest of your wireless devices
The key is goning to say wep1 or wep2, and the key can be anything 10 digits or combination there of as long as they are all the same. If you really messed it up, call apple and they will help you for free. My friend did it one day when he messed his up and I was not around. He was on the phone for 45 minutes with them and they were nice as can be to him. Also you can start fresh, by resitting the router "push the little reset button, then go to the wireless portion of the routers setup page, 192.168.1.1, and set all of your wireless devices to the same key and code type. There are also different channels that you can select like channel 6, on the router. Go slow and you will get it, it's not that hard, just remember to rate me if I helped you, thanks

I cannot connect to wifi in my ipod touch


Change the router encryption or create an encryption as WEP using your Zyxel router.

The connection in your college is maybe unsecured or no security?

- Try also to check the settings of your router make that unsecured or configured a WEP encryption to the router.
- Turn off the MAC filtering of the router (Under advance settings)
- Disable the wifi-protected setup of the router (Under advance settings)

- Refresh the network list before reconnecting to the network.

Note: As we try WEP encryption to some of the router, the IPod can connect to the network.

verify wireless settings in your router. Check if the security enabled in your router is already supported by your IPod touch. Otherwise, set the wireless security of the router to a mode that is supported by your IPod touch.

New HP laptop will not connect to wireless secure network


Problem solved. I disabled the security on my network. I connected the new laptop to the unsecure network. I saved the settings on the laptop for the unsecure network. I rebooted the laptop. I re-enabled security on the router. I tried to connect to the network. I got an error on the laptop saying the network saved settings did not match. I modified the settings to a secure network on the laptop and saved the 128 bit key. Rebooted everything. All works fine now.
