The network cable from the cable modem plugs directly to the back of the Linksys where it says WAN or INTERNET. (It is on the back, small usually red, you may need to use a pen) Hold it in for about ten seconds. Now unplug the power cord from the Linksys, make sure the lights go off.3.
Try typing in the WEP "key 1" numbers (not the actual password or passphrase) They are located in the "wireless security" settings. Go to Wireless/Wireless Security and they should be right there. If Default Transmit Key "1" is marked use "key 1" numbers, if "2" is marked use "key 2" numbers, etc. And then I tried your solution I lowerd my wifi channel and the phone instantly connected.
We bought a Linksys router (WRT54G2) Now, the daughter can connect to the net, no prob, but my son with the new ipod cannot. My network is listed on the ipod, but it will not let him connect to the network here. Is this what I am looking for - what is known as the "key"? Anyone with Ipod touch WIFi linksys issues needs to read your solution. Even more disappointed that Linksys wanted to charge me $32.00 to supposedly fix my problem after speaking with one person who said I would need to be connected to some special dept who handles the IPOD problems!! I don't know if this will work for you, but it worked for me: Changed the Wifi channel on the router to a lower one Once I did this it started working immediately, and the Wifi signal strength was even much better than before.
I tried what Tiskilwa suggested and it still doesn't work for me. I had similar trouble when trying to connect to my ipod touch to my home wireles (lynksys) which is secured by a password.
When I have password activiated I can't connect using my iphone. My ipod touch asked me to enter the password for the network. To find the network security key go to click on "wireless", click the sub-tab "wireless security".
I turned off wifi wifi on the iphone then went to my home wifi network wi fi network and in settings clicked forget this network.
Then I re-entered my wifi network password password and I could connected again to safari and my e-mails straight away.
Second check the wireless mac filter on the routers page maybe mac filter is set to enable thats why you cant connect your iphone to your wifi I had the same issue and this fixed it: I found a solution from a friend: You disable the password and let the iphone connect to the router. I have done a manual reset (unplug router, then modem, wait 1 min.
Then you put the password back and now it will accept the password. plug modem back in, once totally connected, plug in router) with no difference. I am currently running Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit.
It tells me password incorrect even though I'm putting in the exact password. I been fighting with my router for 2 months , I been doing what everyone else has been telling me and I gave up, I seen your post , I dont have the wrt120n I have the wrt52g so I thought I would try it anyways and it worked! What I finally discovered is that the password to enter is not the password that you created for the wifi but it is actually the network security key which lynksys provided when you purchased. The "passphrase" is the network security key and is what you should use as the password for connecting the ipod touch to the wireless.
