    I got the WEP key and all that stuff to connect to the internet on my iPod touch and it still does not work. The router and DNS spaces were empty at first and I did some research and found what to put there but my ip starts with 169 and I heard that that means something. Anyone have any suggestions how to fix this. Im really stuck and its frustrating.

    Perhaps there is MAC filtering on the network.

    Hmm, is this your own network? Is this a school/work/public network?

    You may need to configure VPN or something.

    The IP address should begin with 192.168. . .

    Also, this thread may help you.

    If it's your network, you should easily be able to see if there is a MAC filter (where only selected devices can connect).

    I was just thinking the same thing... But I'm not sure how to explain it to him.

    Basically it is blocking the mac address from your iPod and anything else trying to join. I have my filter going so none of my neighbors get in my network, just incase they figure out my WEP key.

    For your question about MAC Filtering, it's basically to improve security and disallow authentication.

    Here's a quote from About.com
