I am not sure about this, but I did try again yesterday to turn off the router and keep it off for about a minute. Again, no positive results. However, today my iPod Touch is connecting. I ONLY turned off the router. From many other off site posts I read about the matter, this was the best solution. LIke I said, it did NOT work for me until the next day. For reasons unknown, the Touch is connecting again. I am only guessing here, but suppose the router off for a minute or so fixed this issue, but not right away. Still baffled here, but happy it is working again.
Okay guys I FOUND A FIX. First off i've had my itouch for a couple weeks and its worked like a champ with no problems then today it popped up saying "Invalid Argument" when i tryed to use Safari.
The technical issue is that the IP address the itouch is using expires and you need to renew regularly which most people dont do until theres a problem.
TO FIX THE PROBLEM
Go into settings, tap on wifi, connect to your wireless network, once connected tap the blue arrow, next to your connected network, in the DHCP tab scroll to the bottom of the page, Tap the Renew Lease button 3 times then it will update your IP address and it should work.
Also if that doesn't work, reset your router manually by unplugging the power waiting 30 seconds, powering it back up then doing the same steps above.
Here's a series of steps that should correct the problem you are seeing:
1. Power cycle your router
2. Reset your network settings on the touch - tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset your network settings.
3. When your iPod restarts, log back onto your network by tapping Settings > WiFi > Other
4. Re-enter your SSID (network name), security setting, and password.
If you are using WEP, use the hex value in the Key1 field of your router in place of the password. Better still, change your encryption to WPA-psk or WPA2-psk.
If you continue to have problems, go to your router makers website and download and install the latest firmware for your router.
