Troubleshooting Wi-Fi with your iPod Touch

One of the best things about the iPod Touch is that it can pick up Internet connections. But what if you’re in a Wi-Fi area and still can’t pick it up? Here are a few things you can do to correct this Wifi problem on ipod touch.

First if you can, try to move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot. If you know that you’re close enough to the hotspot that your iPod Touch should be able to pick up, look to make sure that the Wi-Fi router is working and that it’s turned on. The problem could be the router, and not your iPod Touch at all! Also be aware that networks that are “closed” or “private” are locked and cannot be hopped onto without a password and knowing the network’s name (although often the Touch will be able to supply you with the name of the network.) To enter this information, choose Settings and then Wi-Fi and then Other. Then you’ll be given a dialogue box that will let you enter in all the information needed.

First, turn the router off for several minutes and then try turning it back on. You may also have to restore or reset your router in order to get it back up and running. Then, check the manufacturer’s manual of your router to make sure that there are no firmware or software updates needed. If that’s not the problem, make sure that your router has a 802.11 b/g signal that it’s transmitting. If the signal is being transmitted at any other frequency, see if the router can be adapted so that it is compatible with the 802.11 b/g frequency.

Still banging your head against a wall trying to get that connection? Check the router again to see how many WEP keys your router is using. If it’s using more than one, try changing the settings on the router so that it’s only using one WEP key. If all else fails, disable the wireless encryption on the router to make sure that encryption is not the problem. If that clears it up for you, see if there’s a way to change the encryption or the security on the router so that it’s no longer a problem with your iPod Touch.
