      You password will be in your router settings, under the wireless settings. It will be a load of numbers and letters.

      Its usually printed on a sticker on the bottom of the router as well.

      Yep look on the bottom of the router (or side on some newer routers) for the sticker showing your SSID and network key. Just remember to use the on screen shift in between characters to keep your input in capitals.

      Hi thanks. The SSID is the name that comes up when the ipod is searching for wireless connections. so i typed in the network code for the password and that didn't work.

      Was it in caps? most of our keys are all letters and in capitals. Unless something has been changed on the router that will work.

      Check in the router settings to make sure the key is correct, if it is then try dropping the encryption to WEP but it should work with WPA-PSK.

      Yes it was in caps.
      Are you certain, from what I have read this is the most common cause of iPhones/Pods being unable to connect. The readout looks like caps, but it is not, you must tap the shift key before each letter to enable caps. If you have tried this, then try changing the pass key in the router to one of your own and try again.

      Aye this is why I said to make sure that the letters are shifted into caps between each letter, if not it will not connect. If it won't connect then something has gone wrong with the input unless the key has been changed off the default.
