    Hey guys and gals,

    I know all of you are busy playing around in the App Store, but I hope you can put down Super Monkey Ball to help me out. I have a Linksys wireless router in my home and it is set to 128-bit WEP password protection. For some reason I cannot connect my iPod touch to my network. I try putting in the password...no luck. I try putting in that long 28 letter password...no luck. What should I do?

    Thanks!

    Can other computers see your network?
    Does your network require a MAC address allowing computers to join?
    You have the caps lock on?

    Yea, my MBP is logged into my network. Yes, I believe it uses a MAC address. Caps lock on what? The touch?

    Recommendation: switch to WPA. It is more secure and easier to use.

    Also, it should be a 26-digit password for 128 bit.

    Hi,

    Some other users and myself have experienced some issues connecting iPhones/iPod Touches with 2.0 firmware to linksys routers.

    You can check out this link for some more info and possible solutions.

    When entering the WEP key as the password for the Wi-Fi network, use capital letters (if you are not already).
