    Does the iPod connect to other networks?

    Does the iPod see the network?

    Any error messages?

    Do other devices connect?

    Did the iPod connect before?

    Try:

    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost

    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at

    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    - Power off and then back on the router

    - Reset network settings: Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings

    - iOS: Troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks and connections

    - iOS: Recommended settings for Wi-Fi routers and access points

    - Restore from backup. See:

    iOS: How to back up

    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.

    - Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.

    Huh? ...  the Android to the iPod via Wi-Fi? (Can't be done as far as I know.)

     

    Do you actually mean that you have connected the Android and the iPod to each other, via Bluetooth? If so, the iPod cannot transfer files via Bluetooth.

    The poster said wifi off Android phone, thus it appears they are using the phone as a wifi hotspot.

    Android phones can be use as a Wi-Fi the fiend. As for lllaass he is using the phone as a wifi hotspot. Plus he can use his 4G network (if available)
