    Today i got a 16g 2g ipod touch and when i tried to do wi-fi it didnt work. I have a laptop and a router. i can connect my labtop to linksys but when i try to do wi-fi it wont even show wi-fi. also i tried to connect to my linksys by pressing the "options..." button and filled it out and it did have a WEP so i typed the password in. then it says "unable to join network"

    does anyone know how i could fix that

    so your saying that your computer can connect to your linksys router, but can not connect to the internet. What is your router conneted to for the internet part.

    the router is the problem it seems. Call your ISP.
