      You should be using your key that is situated on the bottom of the router. Make sure you enter it exactly as it states.

      And hit the shift key on the itouch before each letter or it will not enter it in capitals which is probably why it's not worked yet.

      You should be using WPA, with the key entered in capital letters only.

      Re: Ipod touch - wifi connection

      Your ipod should be giving you a choice of encryption methods. Probably in a drop down box. I know my 11 year old granddaughter connected hers to my router with no help, other than being told the pass key, do you have a pre-teenager lying around to set it up for you?

      Have a look at this tutorial.

      Where it choose a network it comes up with:
      SKY*****

      OTHER
      If I choose other I add SKY***** then it gives me the option of security - i have picked WEP
      then gone back and add my password (from the bottom of the router) and it still wont connect.

      Re: Ipod touch - wifi connection

      - i have picked WEP
      Pick WPA-PSK, once again WPA

      If you want to use WEP, which is much less secure, you will have to change the encryption in the router, which is a lot more complicated than simply selecting WPA.
