Ipod Touch Wireless Problems

IPod touchImage via WikipediaI wrote on two posts about Ipod Touch wireless problems and I must admit that people really have problems connecting. So here is my 3rd edition of Ipod Touch WiFi Troubleshooting.

First read this two posts:
Ipod touch wifi troubleshooting
Ipod Touch WiFi (Wireless Troubleshooting)

If you read these two posts and still have WiFi problems, go ahead send email to ilovetoargue AT gmail DOT com. I will try to respond to your emails within 24hours.

Yes, hi. Sorry to bother you. i recently have been trying really hard to connect my Ipod touch to my wireless internet. But a message saying that it cant find the servers connection pops up. Why cant I get my ipod connected?

I have an ipod touch and linksys router. I had no touble connecting to the wifi before I changed to WEP, I moved to a downtown area now so I feel like I need to have some type of password protection. I can connecto the router in the settings menu and the passkey is acknowledged, but whenever I attempt to use any internet functions I get the "cannot find server" error message. I would rather not go back to being unprotected, any suggestions?

I have the same problem as Tuffy. I can connect to the work wifi (a linksys device with WEB security) with ease but my home wifi (a dlink device) doesn't work.

I've gone through the hoops of disabling all the security and mac filtering at my home wifi with no luck. The ipod seems to recognize the hotspot as the "fan" icon shows a strong signal, but using any of the internet apps will fail.

Okay so my ipod touch has had internet working perfectly for two years. Then 2 weeks ago it stopped. It can still find my internet, but every time I press it, it say it's unable to connect. I reset and now my apps are out of order (which I'm mad about) but I'm really frustrated because I can't figure out what's wrong. Do you think you could tell me if it is something that I can fix? Thank you so much, and sorry for bothering you!

i have had an itouch for about two weeks and i cant connect to the linksys network at home. at a friends it works fine. it connects without a problem. on my itouch i select 'settings', 'wi-fi' (and it says not connected next to it), and then it says wi-fi is on. below this it says 'choose a network...' and there is linksys and other... (my ask to join networks is on), i select linksys and it says "unable to join the network 'linksys'" i click dismiss and click the blue arrow next to the linksys option. i have the settings to DHCP IP Adress, Subnet Mask, Router, DNS, Search Domains, and Client ID are all blank. i can only input stuff into DNS, Search Domains, and Client ID. What do i do to get my internet on the itouch to work at home? our internet at home works fine. please help.

Hello - thank you so much, in advance, for any help you can give me. This is so frustrating for us non-IT savy people! My daughter was given an iPod Touch as a gift and although we have wireless set up at home she cannot connect her Touch to it. We've tried completely shutting everything off, Resetting all settings on wireless router as well as on Touch, changing from WEP to WPA and back again. Have entered Passphrase, password, and Key in separate tries many times to get something to work. We get the same message that it can't find the proxy server. The Touch does see my wireless though. I've even entered the MAC address on the router to hope that this solves the problem, but no... I have a PC laptop and PC desktop that are connected wirelessly to my Linksys WRT54G2 router and haven't had problems with those connections - can always get them back online after making changes to router and their settings. But nothing I do seems to help with the Touch. Argh!! I've even been to the iPod store where of course it works just fine so they tell me to look online at the iPod forum on Apple.com. Nothing has helped. I would be forever grateful if you can show me the light!!

A few weeks ago, my iPod was connecting just fine to the wi-fi at my college campus. Then, all of a sudden, it just stopped. I tried restarting the whole iPod. I erased everything and changed all of the settings back to default. Nothing has worked. When I went home, my wi-fi still wasn't working on my home network. My laptop works on both networks, and my friends' iPods work on both also. Do you have any tips that I can try? You can email me at eastlesswater09@gmail.com. Any ideas will be appreciated. Thank you.

My new late 2009 32 GB ipod Touch would not connect well or at all to my 5 year old wireless router. It worked fine at work. My family members with older ipod Touches did NOT have problems. I replaced the router with a new model router. No problems now. So, my suggestion is that the newest iPod Touches may not work well with older wireless routers. Guess it was just time to update my hardware.

I just got an IPod Touch for Christmas and it was working fine with my Linksys wireless network until I went out of town and tried to connect to a local wifi hotspot. When I got back home, my IPod could no longer find my wireless network. I went into "SETTINGS" then into "GENERAL" and then scrolled down to the very bottom and selected "RESET" and then selected "RESET NETWORK SETTINGS". That solved it! YEAH! I hope this helps you!!

I have 2 iPod touches and my bro and Sis each have 1 but I haven't had any problems until recently. All the iPods tell me the server stopped responding so I know it is not my iPod it is the router I checked everything and made sure it was on I get wi fi for a few minutes but then I randomly get an error message I have a netgear router which worked perfect I don't know what is wrong with it

lee said...

I have no problem connecting to the internet with my wireless when I am using my ITouch within 20 feet of the router. If I move farther away, I get an error message saying can't connect to the server. What's wrong? Please help if you can.
