    Under Settings > Wifi, it shows that I'm connect to my wireless network. My laptop also works fine with the same wifi connection. But somehow my 32GB 3rd Gen touch won't pick up the signal. How do i fix this?

    Thanks in advance.

    If your router is Wireless N Router, the iPod will not be able to surf the internet or anything even if it shows that it is connected. Check if your router sends out Wireless N.

    It is indeed a N router, but I was able to use it before without a problem.

    My N router works fine, it's a dual band, sucks, but it works, and it sucks cuz of my dsl, not the router, the range is bad though.

    Yeah, all N routers are backwards compatible, that's a nice router, what's it's usable range?

    Make sure you have Mixed mode turned on. (b or g would do)
    iPod touches don't support the N signal, in other words, the network chipset can not communicate with wireless N network (the most it supports is wireless g).

    Almost all N routers offer the mixed mode so try enabling wireless g along side the N network.

    its actually the new firmwares fault. a lot of people on the apple forums are having the same problem.
