Thank you Carolyn Samit, but nothing is working.
I've restored my ipod both to a backup and back to factory. I know the password is correct,
the router is the newest version (and it's plugged in and on), my ipod is updated, i've turned my wifi settings on and off, i've turned the ipod off and on. No luck yet. I've been working on it for hours now. About ready to sleep on it...maybe some luck will find me tomorrow...
Still in need of dire help.
Do other devices connect OK to your router?
Does it connect OK to other routers/networks? if so that would indicate a problem with ou router or it settings.
Try changing the security on the router. Start with no security as a test. Try changing the chanels on the router.
