    So my school has wi-fi and I already know the password, which is the default password. Anyways, kids in my class bring laptops and are on myspace and such while the teacher is feeding us bull and I can't use the wi-fi. So I was just curious if they have a block on portable devices and if so, is there any method/software that will bypass this? Sorry if this has been answered (first post for me).

    I think there is something that allows only computers to get on wi-fi.
    I would check DNS if you can, and see if there is a WEP or W[I forgot the other Letters.

    OK, so I don't understand what you mean when you say you can't use the WIFI ? You mean you can't connect? By default password, I assume you mean that the school uses the same password for all students in the school, right? If I'm right on both of those assumptions, then your problem is an easy one. Your password is wrong - try it again. Your password is a WEP or WPA, or it would be a login - which would mean you have already connected. Make sure your entering it exactly, as the touch will many times accept a WEP even when its wrong and just NOT connect.

    I don't think it could be a MAC filter, as the school would have a very hard time trying to control who gets on and who doesn't by filtering. The MAC identification IS unique to each device (not device type) so unless you caused a problem before with your touch, they would have no way of knowing if your device is a computer or a touch OR belongs to you as a student or to the Dean of Students. Make sense?

    Keep trying the key (or password as you call it)
