    Hi guys, I am new here. I have been watching this site for a while now, but just got an account. Anyways, I am having a problem hooking my iPod touch up to wi-fi.

    I have had my iPod for about 1 month. I am currently running 1.1.3.. So the wi-fi has worked for me. Well, for about 1 week, my internet connection got lost for my iPod. My family has about 3 laptops, all running the same internet connection. My computer works just fine, as well as the rest. But my iPod touch is having big problems connecting.

    I go to the Wi-fi panel in Settings. It shows my network, and so I click it. I enter my WEP code, and everything seems fine. But when I enter safari, or any other app that uses wi-fi, it says, "Safari can't open the page because it can't find the server." Although it says that, the little wi-fi signal up at the status bar is on full blast. So I did some research on why it isn't working. I checked my MacBook's network IP address, and it dosen't match the one on my iPod. On my iPod, it starts with 169. On my computer, it starts 192. Same with the subnet mask. There is no Router info, or DNS on the iPod touch network panel. Anyone know how to change the IP address on the iPod for good?

    Here is what my page looks like:

    IP Address:
    DHCP BootP Static

    IP Address: 169.2*4.*2.2*8
    Subnet Mask: 2*5. 2*5.0.0
    Router:
    DNS:
    Search Domains:
    Client ID:

    Renew Lease

    HTTP Proxy
    OFF Manual Auto

    My modem seems to be working fine, as well as the connection on all 3 of our computers. I am using a MacBook. It would be very nice if I could receive some help

    -Thank you!

    a 169 IP address indicates that you're not getting an IP from the DHCP server

    so.... it's likely you're not entering the WEP code in correctly or maybe you have some other sort of protection enabled like MAC filtering

    oh and you don't have to blot out the IP and subnet mask like that... people cant really do anything with your local addresses.
