My iPod Touch won't connect to our WiFi network

I can connect to my neighbors wifi (which isn't locked and is an open signal) fine but i can't connect to our locked one. I enter the passcode and it brings up the error of "Unable to join the network "zoom"".

All of the computers on the network (none of which are Macs, they're all PCs), including other mobile devices (none of which are iPod Touches), are working with the internet using the same passcode as my iPod Touch is trying to use.

Any suggestions on getting this to work?

The only I could see would be the passcode, check the administrator for the passcode. Sometimes it could be a long string of alphanumeric.

I have the passcode and have typed it in several times. I havn't got it wrong and thereforee don't think the problem is with the passcode.

One possible quick solution is to just reset the password/phrase for the wireless network. Means re-configging it on your PCs, but may be worth it for the quick Yes / No on getting the Touch connecting. I've had this work when my iPhone refuses to connect to home network after restore or update. No rhyme or reason to it (that I have discerned) but maybe worth a quick try ...

How I got my Wi-Fi connected

Brought home my new iPod Touch, but even though it would recognize my home wireless network, it would not join the network. My router uses WPA2 security with a password, but every time I CAREFULLY entered the password it was rejected. If I shut off security in my router, I could connect, but as soon as I returned to the security settings I could no longer connect. Here's the fix: I simply changed the password/key for my security setting in the router, and then the Touch would connect. Then I changed the password back to what it had been,and the Touch connects again. All good now.

I have an ipod touch with a Linksys router. Router works great for three computers and Xbox 360, however, my ipod worked when I first took it out of the box at Christmas but for several months now, I can connect other places but I can't connect at home. I've reset my routers password, and tried over and over. No success. Any suggestions Please.

The passcode is not located on the wifi device it is setup in the firmware of the router. Look at your users manual (hardcopy or digital) on how to access the admin functions of your router. Some are done by software (to setup router for the first time) that is on your computer or by accessing through web browser to the router.

If not, try Resetting your wireless connection. Look on the back for a reset button.
After you did that, go next to your wireless box, so there is no question of reception.
If that does not work, on your computer, go into your wireless router settings, and look for the IP address the router has assigned your iPod. On your iPod, in wireless settings, clear the DNS field, and input your iPod's IP address you just found.
It should work now, but if not, try a restore (the one you do in iTunes, not with the hold and home button. Back up your data first though, because a restore will wipe it all.
Good Luck!
