    When sitting in class at school today i noticed the kid in front of me had a touch(not jailbroken lol). I saw him browsing the internet. But the thing was when i tried the internet it doesnt work for me?

    Keep in mind im sitting right behind him. I went into settings>wifi and saw the router and dns matched. So how come when i tried the internet it didnt work for me?

    Im clueless.

    Are you sure he was actually loading a live webpage? He could have loaded it before then just opened up Safari.

    That's probably due to a MAC filter.

    yea i figured it was because ipods dont send out the same exact (insert the correct word here) as a laptop does, so it rejects it?

    I bet its like my house's wifi:

    you can connect to it, but it doesnt work. but if you connect by hitting "other" and entering the info along with the wep key, it works.

    so try hitting "other" and entering the ssid of the network and security to whatever it has (or none)

    that might work better
