    Your school probably has a MAC filter. A MAC filter keeps unwanted devices (like your iPod) off the network. My school also has a MAC filter, so I will get signal bars, but no connectivity if I attempt to connect.

    Or your school may require 802.1x authentication, like mine does, no MAC filter but until 2.0 the iPod doesn't support 802.1x.

    change your ipods media access control address? it may be possible you can do it with computers, and if you just changed it to one of the computers on the school;s networks it would work, idk just thinking out lioud

    i think the ipod has a problem with that.
    even if you enter a wrong key, it will say you connect but wont let data through.
    forget the network under settings and try something like qweaswa.
    if it still connects, it means that your previous one didnt really work
