    I cant connect with any laptop to the university wi fi, the system works this way:

    You open browser with any laptop and just put user name and pass.

    It seems the ipod touch cant connect in the wifi, anyone might know why?, and maybe a way to fix it or gain access?.

    More than likely your school is using WPA encryption which the new touch is having problems with due to a bug in the firmware. Hopefully apple will release a patch for it soon.

    Interesting, I think it's a bug, because I can't connect my 2gen Touch to neither my home wireless router nor my girlfriend's house.

    I enter the password and it approves it, but it won't navegate, it says it's not connected to any network.

    Apple should fix this soon, I guess

    at my college when you access the internet from a non school computer you have to put no matter what web page you go to it redirects you to a site where i have to put in my student ID and password before i can surf the web, I have to do the samething with my touch, after you connect try and go to a webpage before you do anything else internet related...
