Currently Being ModeratedOct 2, 2007 3:20 AM (in response to ChristopherW)Hmmm... have you tried rebooting your Touch? Simply hold down the top button for ten seconds; when a red slider appears asking if you'd like to power off, slide it to the right, and the touch will power off after about five seconds. Then, you can turn on the Touch by pressing that same button again, and then waiting about thirty seconds.
Hopefully this should fix your problem; if not, try taking it into an Apple Store and trying to connect to their Wi-Fi. If that doesn't work, you've definitely got a problem!

Currently Being ModeratedOct 2, 2007 4:08 AM (in response to ChristopherW)I am having the exact same issue. I have rebooted and restored everything to factory settings and I still get he same issue. I will take it to the apple store today.Windows, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedOct 3, 2007 3:53 AM (in response to ChristopherW)Well I took my Itouch to the apple store and the Wi-Fi worked great. So when I came home I thought if I reboot my Linksys router that might help. It did not. This morning when I woke up I decided I would try to reboot my DSL Modem and then I was able to connect to my home Wi-Fi.Windows, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedOct 4, 2007 1:10 PM (in response to ChristopherW)Same for me. I have an Airport Extreme on G-Only. and basic WEP key the modem has nothing to do with it. The ipod should be able to find something.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 4, 2007 1:35 PM (in response to Spider.Jm)I figured it out. for me anyway. Be sure to Register your ipod. then turn it off and power back on. and you should be good

Currently Being ModeratedOct 4, 2007 2:04 PM (in response to ChristopherW)I have exactly the same problem. If I go to an open wifi spaot I can access interenet easily, but any closed site, where password is required, I enter password and iTouch says I am connetced, but can not access anything.imac, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 4, 2007 8:53 PM (in response to gibsri)"Connected" basically means you're connected to the wi-fi access point (more technically, you connected on a layer-1/2 level.) BUT, "connected" doesn't always mean you received a valid IP address and are able to surf with it (layer 3.) The "true" method of seeing whether you're REALLY connected or not is to look at the IP address your iPod pulled. If the first octet in the IP address is 169 (i.e. 169.x.x.x), then you did NOT get a valid IP address, and therefore you do not have a full TCP/IP connection. This is usually because:
1. The wi-fi AP you connected to has some additional security, such as MAC address filtering.
2. The AP took too long to establish a connection with you, and therefore the iPod gave up and assigned itself the 169.x.x.x address.
3. If asking for the password, you didn't give it the correct password. Typos are easy on the iPod touch, as the keyboard makes it very difficult to type in complicated passwords. Also, different APs have different forms of passwords, so always read the documentation of the AP if you actually own it.
4. I'm finding that the signal strength indicator on the iPod is not that accurate. If it looks like you're getting a strong signal, you might actually have a very weak to no signal. This is common if you're walking or are in a moving vehicle - as the iPod touch is too slow to keep up with the ongoing changes of your current wi-fi environment. This also happens if you're in an environment where there are a lot of building structures, causing the wi-fi signals to bounce around like Pac-Man, causing the signals to keep appearing/disappearing.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 4, 2007 9:57 PM (in response to ChristopherW)I've also tried everything on this forum to try and connect to my server but nothing happens. You'd think that after spending this much money, Apple would have taken care of this problem or at least mentioned possible solutions on their website. Is there an update we need to download? Has anyone found the real solution to connecting to the internet or iTunes via iPod Touch?Macbook, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2007 12:08 AM (in response to ChristopherW)Christopher, switch over to "WPA Pre-Shared" and dump the "WEP"! I had similar issues and after I switched to WPA, not a single hiccup! I don;t know why, but the Touch for some unknown reason just doesn't like WEP! Hope it helps.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 11, 2007 12:23 PM (in response to Spider.Jm)Hey Spider.Jm - what do you mean by register your ipod? I recently turned on my iPod and am getting the 'No Wi-fi' message on the settings page and can't click on it. There's no way to get to the wifi settings page, enter an SSID or select a network. I did a full restore to 1.1.1 through iTunes, and everything else seems to work fine, but I get the 'No Wi-fi' message on the settings page. Any ideas?Macbook, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 12, 2007 1:24 PM (in response to obz)I just started having a similar problem (of the settings menu telling me I had a connection but it not showing up in the menu bar or getting internet) and the following steps seemed to help.
Go to Settings > WIFI > Choose a network
Touch the blue arrow on the side of the desired network name.
Touch "Forget this Network"
Now try to re-log in as normal.
Let me know if this works..
