First we got to figure out what is your ip address of the router by default it's 192.168.1.1.
If not, go to any of your working PC's go to Start>Run: Type in CMD, Command Prompt should come up , type in ipconfig and check out what your Default Gateway is (your router ip)
In browser type in router ip for example: http://192.168.1.1/
If asked for password by default: admin (no username)
Once you are logged in go to Wireless and then Wireless Security, you will find your WEP WPA keys or passphrase (write that down).
Here is how mine looks like:
Next go to your ipod touch settings click on Wireless, double tap on your wireless and first enter WEP/WPA key if that didn't work, try passphrase.

Since yesterday I received 29 emails JUST regarding Ipod Touch Wireless Issues. So I thought I’d give it another shot.
First if you haven't read this post please do Ipod touch wifi troubleshooting
As some of you know I used to work for a Technical Support, Wireless and Internet Connection Cable Company, therefore I know every single trick to get you online and that's what I’m here for.
Here are some other tricks to get you connected with your Ipod Touch:
The method with restarting modem/router and turning back on ipod touch didn't work?
How about this!
Turn OFF every single PC, turn off your cable/dsl modem, turn off your router and your Ipod Touch. Got it? Cool!
Now turn on your Modem first wait till it syncs (30-45sec), Turn on your router wait till it syncs with modem (30sec), then turn on your ipod touch!
There is one difference between turning OFF your Ipod Touch and Sleep Mode.
Sleep Mode is when you click on the button on top and Ipod Touch is off, well I wasn't talking about that.
To TURN OFF your Ipod Touch you have to HOLD that button for about 5-7sec and then move the red bar to the right. To turn it back on repeat the step above by holding button for 5-7sec!
Hope this helps if not please email me at ilovetoargue AT gmail DOT com and I will try to help you personally!
P.S. I will be moving this week to my new home and I will not be able to respond to you right away so don't feel like I don't care about you all!
I will create a video on how to connect to your wireless connection so you have a visual of what you can do your self and why stuff does not work.
So please subscribe to my RSS feeds or Email Notification on Top Right Menu.
I played yesterday with friend of mine for almost an hour, love it!

First what you want to do is connect to your wireless connection .
Click On Settings>WiFi>Turn WiFi ON. Make sure you are connecting to YOUR wireless connection , check what is the name of your ssid(wireless name) on your router.
Before you connect to your wireless connection check if your connection is secured or not. To do that follow, the steps above once you found your wireless.
If there is a LOCK image that means your connection is secured, from this point you want to get that WEP or WAP key from your wireless router.
Connecting to your wireless network with Ipod Touch
If asked for password enter your WEP or WAP key and click on Join button, wait few moments and then see if you are connected. Test with your safari browser.
Can't connect to wireless network?
Few things you can check:
Did you get an IP address from your wireless router?
Unplug the power from your router shut down your ipod touch. Plug back in your router first, then wait for 1 minute and then turn on your Ipod Touch.
You are not getting an IP at all?
Are you sure you are connected to your wireless router?
Does your router have MAC address filtering On?
Did you enter correct Password (WEP-WAP key)?
Few more things to check...
Does your homepage work?
Did you try yahoo.com google.com ebay.com etc?
How about your YouTube do you get any videos?

Remote control your pc or mac with Ipod Touch has been released. I have searched google code the other day and found this interesting tool. I had a chance to test it and it works great. No you can't hit control alt delete but you can do pretty much anything else.

"From what I have found the firmware version is 1.1.2 not 1.1.2 and only for the iphone so far.
I have not heard this mentioned anywhere yet, all of the videos on dailymotion.com work on the ipod touch. just wait for the little "play icon to show up.""
Can somebody try that today and see if it works?
go to www.dailymotion.com view some video wait a little bit and videos should work.
Please leave a comment for the rest of us.
So that means not only youtube videos but dailymotion, google, megavideo and other video sites will work as well.
UPDATE: Two commentators reported back, it works with version 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 !!!!! Please check the comments for more info from visitors and touch owners "Thank you Roh!"

Ipod Touch WiFi (Wireless Troubleshooting) Part 2
Ipod Touch Wireless Problems
Visit Ipod Touch Forum For Troubleshooting WiFi - Post Question and get answer by others and me as well.
What I found out is amazing, people don't have to use hacks to use 3rd party applications on ipod touch, by february iphone and ipod touch owners will be able to add applications! (yey).
Here is the quote from apple site:
Let me just say it: We want native third party applications on the iPhone, and we plan to have an SDK in developers’ hands in February. We are excited about creating a vibrant third party developer community around the iPhone and enabling hundreds of new applications for our users. With our revolutionary multi-touch interface, powerful hardware and advanced software architecture, we believe we have created the best mobile platform ever for developers.
It will take until February to release an SDK because we’re trying to do two diametrically opposed things at once—provide an advanced and open platform to developers while at the same time protect iPhone users from viruses, malware, privacy attacks, etc. This is no easy task. Some claim that viruses and malware are not a problem on mobile phones—this is simply not true. There have been serious viruses on other mobile phones already, including some that silently spread from phone to phone over the cell network. As our phones become more powerful, these malicious programs will become more dangerous. And since the iPhone is the most advanced phone ever, it will be a highly visible target.
Some companies are already taking action. Nokia, for example, is not allowing any applications to be loaded onto some of their newest phones unless they have a digital signature that can be traced back to a known developer. While this makes such a phone less than “totally open,” we believe it is a step in the right direction. We are working on an advanced system which will offer developers broad access to natively program the iPhone’s amazing software platform while at the same time protecting users from malicious programs.
We think a few months of patience now will be rewarded by many years of great third party applications running on safe and reliable iPhones.
P.S.: The SDK will also allow developers to create applications for iPod touch.

How many of you would like to add your Calendar on your Ipod touch?
With help of Jailbreak you can do that now!!!!
You can add your event's b-days, important meetings etc all to your calendar.
First go to Jailbreak read a little bit, and then do the following:
“all you need to do is add the following two lines to the N45AP.plist file [under “capabilities” not under “root” in the property list] inside your Core Services’ SpringBoard app.
The plist is found at /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/N45AP.plist”
I have not heard as of yet that iPod Touch will have similar features, but I bet you in about a month there will be a lot more to it.
If you look at the iPod Touch screen you can obviously see there is place for many other apps on home page(what i called it)
Now if they really did not attend to make such apps they could spread out the apps across the screen right? I don't think they would make it same as iPhone screen (just because)
I have seen ipod Touch hacks development in process, there is development team that are in process to hack ipod touch and see what other tricks can be done to it.
Is it worth hacking your iPod touch?
I wouldn't recommend because sooner or later apple will release some firmware(software) update and your ipod touch could get locked.

This isn't a trick but it's reality I found website just for ipod touch and yes iphone as well, where you can view and listen to music for free!
How awesome is that!
I test it my self and it works very well with high speed internet and your wireless on iPod Touch.
Open your safari browser on your iPod Touch type in www.seeqpod.com
There will be 2 options for you search and discover, I used them both and either of them work fine.
Now I notice that just 1 song out of 10 I searched for did not work, site was down or something, but others worked just fine!
Let me know if you found any other similar websites as seeqpod and I will post them on here.
Do the following:
Go to your videos and look for the movie that you want to delete, after that on movie line just move your finger to the left . It should show you delete button, press on delete button and that's it.
If you don't want to delete the movie and just test this ipod touch trick, move your finger to the right and delete button will go away.
Once you connect the iPod Touch back to your pc the move will re-sync.
Delete movie before you reconnect your iPod Touch to the pc or mac.

You got some videos on your pc and would like to convert
it for your ipod touch but don't know how?
Easy said, there is many software you can use, some are for free
and some of them are not.
I will give you two softwares that I tested my self, and one of them is free
and the other cost $29.
Videora - Videora for Ipod touch is cool software to convert your ipod touch videos.
It has many features but the only thing I did not like is converting time.
Takes about 2 hours to convert whole movie(700mb).
The quality is ok and everything but imagine having 10 movies to convert?
That will take you about 20 hours to convert all 10 of them, and that is if you have good laptop, mine is brand new.
Winavi - Winavi is one of the best video and music converters and I know from my own experience.
To convert 700mb movie took me only 12 minutes unlike videora 2 hours!.
Has a lot of other features like cd dvd burner and other tools.
What I like the most, you can preview the converversion video so you know exactly what you are going to see on your ipod touch.
Get your free trial, and if you like it buy it for $29.
I must say that at the beginning when I wanted to burn my first video I had some problems, the software crashed all the time, so what I did.
I turned off video preview and it works fine now. Only way to fix that is to download newest version of quicktime and then you can preview video as well.
Today I was at amazon.com looking for some ipod touch accessories, anyways found this cool ipod or mp3-mp4 player :). Looks VERY similar to ipod touch but has few different options.
You can still play music videos play a game even and listen to radio. The seller on amazon said they tested and the only thing they did not like was FM radio the rest of it is cool with perfect sound.
What it does not have, is the wireless connection and youtube. So if you like wireless and youtube on your ipod touch this toy is not for you then.
Thursday, October 4, 2007
When I got my Ipod touch 16gb I was very furstuated because it did not really contain any user manual.
It's not like I needed it because most of the part is very common sense. But I must say that even if you buy a toaster you get user manual on how to use it.
So if you ware searching for ipod touch user manual and quick guide here you can download it in pdf file. For readers that don't know what pdf file is: go to adobe.com simply download adobe reader if you don't have it on your pc and then:
Download Ipod Touch Manual:
Ipod Touch Manual
Download Ipod Touch Quick Guide:
Ipod Touch Quick Guide
Whether you own Ipod Touch or Iphone I will give you the website I use to download videos wallpapers pictures and music ringtones(TrueTones,Polyphonics etc).
Go to this website www.mobango.com register with the site which takes only 20 seconds to do so.
Once you done that it's up to you what you want to download and yes all stuff you see there is free.
To get your downloaded music videos and wallpapers transfered to your ipod touch, simply open your iTunes on your pc and the rest I'll assume you know how to do it.
If not please leave a comment and I will explain step by step.
