    Hi Folks
    Just got myself a new Ipod touch and i am very happy with it , except for the fact I cant hook up to the WiFi Router! Heres the story
    I have an Archos 7 and a Nintendo Wii and are both working on my WiFi setup at home and secured by WEP 64 Bit Password/code, I put in the same WEP password/code into my Ipod touch (G2 upgraded to os4.1) only to get the message "unable to join the network '********' .Can you Help?

    {Since I wrote the first message i've changed the passphrase on the router and did the same for the Archos and Wii, Both work with the new passphrase
    Unfortunately the ipod still responds with "unable to join the network ********" with the new passphrase, so i've disabled the WEP security on the router completely and i still get the "unable to join the network ********" message}
    I'm beginning to think my new ipod is faulty
    Cheers
    Freddy

    I had a similar problem with my school network, during the brief period I was on 4.1 it was fixed and now back on 4.0 it isn't. But I have no idea what is causing your problem.

    You could try changing the password?
