    The internet seems to be not working on my ipod touch. It is working on my laptop, but whenever I type in the password for my internet on the ipod, it says unable to join the network. I am 100% sure it is the right password. PLEASE HELP!

    Were you ever able to connect the iPod to that router?

    Disable encryption on the router and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

    Merged your threads. Please do not start another thread to continue an existing one.

    To disable encryption set the Encryption (or Security) mode to 'none' or 'off' or similar.
