Fix IPod Touch WiFi Issue (won't Connect)





Introduction: Fix IPod Touch WiFi Issue (won't Connect)

About: Travelling since 2013. I'm currently in Australia for some reason. --- I’m Calvin Drews, and I love to learn, experiment, invent, create, repair, and generally just do things myself. A sort of modern jack o...

Ok, this is really simple and it worked for me and my Linksys WiFi. 2 step is all it takes to explain to anyone how to fix this common problem.

Step 1: Find Your Router

Find you router. This is pretty simple but good luck anyway.

Step 2: Boy or Girl?

Now look at the back of your router...

...and locate the reset button. It's blue and set into the case...and says "reset" above it (duh).

Step 3: Lets Do This!

Now prepare yourself. Look around for a pencil...and use it to gently push the reset button.

Now you are done! all you have to do is go on you iPod Touch>settings>WiFi>Choose Network> and choose yours.

Bask in the glory of technological understanding!

    Does not work!!!

    God Bless Your SOUL! Thank you so much for this. I looked through so many different websites and tried so many different things, always skipping the reset router part because I wasn't sure how to do it, but this article was so plain and helpful and I FINALLY have wifi back on my iPod. I thought I was going to cry. THANK YOU

    I unplugged everything on my router with no luck BUT, I just pressed the reset button ONLY this time and it worked!


    Thank you so much, hours of screaming at Spark that they had changed the DNS, to no avail, hours of scouring the Apple webs, the bin was calling. But thanks to you 'pleb1' all sorted. No router resets, no deleting and adding accounts, no going through Apps, you are truly a blessing.

    I wish to see the last picture remain. I wish to see the second picture removed.

    I found with the IPhone and IPod touch, both of which I have tried with multiple routers seems to be the DHCP DNS information doesn't get put into the device. so what I have been doing to fix it is putting in manual DNS settings you can use or (Google DNS servers)

    I was having problems with connecting after we had blackouts occur. After putting in I've finally been able to connect again. So thank you for this! :)

    Go to settings, network, wi-fi. Under "choose a network", pick the one you are using and hit the blue arrow. Then you can select DHCP, scroll down to DNS and select DNS and then  you can put in the setting. I put in and that worked out well for me.

    I hope that description helped. :)

    Hey, thanks a lot!  I have been struggling with this for a day now and just happened to find this website.  Your instructions did the trick.  Thanks so much!!!! 

    Yay! I am glad it worked out for you. Nothing worse than getting a headache trying to get things to work. Thanks to Prunes, again, for suggesting those settings.
