    I've been connecting to my home network for close to a year now and suddenly my iPod has stopped being able to connect. I have looked at several threads on how to fix this and have come up with no solutions. I am able to connect to other wi-fi networks but no olnger my own.

    I have tried:
    1. Forgetting the network
    2. Unplugging router
    3. Rebooting iPod
    4. Restoring iPod
    5. Restarting iPod
    6. Changing setting on the router (Name, Password, Protection type)
    7. Restored router to factory settings

    I have a 1st Generation 8GB iPod Touch on 3.1.3 Firmware. The problem started on 3.1.2 firmware and my iPod was updated when I restored. The iPod is no longer jailbroken. The router is an Airlink 150N and can broadcast n/g/b signals.

    EDIT: iPod has been re-jailbroken.

    Does the network show up in the list of available networks?

    Yes, my network shows up on the list of networks. I select it and enter the password but it tells me that the iPod is unable to connect.

    Try resetting your router.

    try. Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. worked for me when i had this problem. if not your router may be blocking the ipod and you may have to tell the router to allow it in the router settings. this will depend on the router you have though.

    Tried resetting the network settings but the problem still persists. On the router MAC filtering is off, so what other ways could tell the router to allow the device?

    Router is an Airlink 150N. The model number is AR670W

    i think you have to register the mac address of the device with your router. it may be blocking unknown mac addresses. not sure how to do this though. have a look.
    Btw i read this somewere a while back (on 1.1.5 i think) so dont take my word for it. you are best to search google first my friend.

    wifi problem

    Hi
    Had the same problem with my ipod and did all the things you mentioned with no sucsess. I then updated my Router with the latest Firmware and hay presto able to connect again. The other thing to try is disable the wep password, but would not recomend leaving it off, this will indicate needing the update to your Router
