2nd gen apple ipod touch, can't get internet

by abadlovesong / January 14, 2009 2:09 AM PST

Someone help me please. My daughter's ipod won't pick up signal for internet, we bought a DIR 628 router so she would get wi fi but everytime we put in the password we can't join network. I don't know if we have to do something with router or, the ipod or what, please help. The computer operates windows xp pro.

Can you PC connect ok?
Are you set for WEP? i would assume so since you enter a password. Also is there any MAC filtering or any other filtering set up?
Can the ipod connect to any other network?

Yes my pc connects just fine. I have a DIR-628 router that i bought specifically so we could get internet access on ipod, but everytime i try to connect to my network, i enter the password and it says it can't connect. I don't know about mac filtering but in my router it shows me a mac address. I have all my router info printed, do I have to enter any of that into ipod?

you should just need to enter the WEP key (password) into Ipod touch and connect. I would reset router and go through the set up again and then try to connect the ipod again.
