    I mainly bought the touch to connect to wi fi & now I can't figure it out! On a laptop, you connect to the college's wi fi. When you try to go to a webpage, you're brought to a page that requires your school id & password & voila. The ipod, however, sees the network (I think? I typed it in as 'other' & when I did that, it seemed to recognize the school's 2 networks) but when I try to get to the log in screen in Safari, it tells me I'm not connected.

    Any ideas?

    I'm not sure, but in my university, we needed to download a special certificate to allow the use of the network. You may need to talk to your school to see how to get it working. Or, if you see someone with an iPod Touch ask them how they got it working

    Well this is for my school to, you are usually taken to a page where you log on with your info, I had this problem to, but like yours my school has two connections. I went to the second connection and it had me log on from the settings, so maybe this can apply for you too.

    I get that too, I think that if you're using school networks or wifi You have to login to verify that you're an administrator
