Linksys Wireless and Ipod Touch

Here is quick tutorial how to get your wep/wpa key and troubleshoot your ipod touch wireless with linksys router.

First we got to figure out what is your ip address of the router by default it's

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:

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.

Ipod Touch WiFi (Wireless Troubleshooting) Part 2

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.

Thank you.

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?
