    hello :) i just received an 8gb ipod touch for christmas. i downloaded itunes to my computer. i plugged in and synced (or so it said) but nothing that i had downloaded onto the itunes site went to my device even though the site said everything was good. Also, my device recognizes the wi-fi in my house but when i try to connect to mail it says connection to the server cannot be found. when i try to connect to itunes or app store it says cannot connect to itunes invalid argument. When i try safari it just keeps spooling. All of this worked when i tried the wi-fi connection at church. the only thing that still wont connect anywhere is you tube. I did notice that the ip address listed on my device for my wi-fi was different from he ip address listed on my computer but i don't know how to change it on my device. could it be because i am running a pc versus a mac? Im not sure what the issues are here but thought id try this site before i put on my "im an idiot" face and tried the different stores.

    ok apparently i write too much cuz no one is helping

    i need some ideas as to why my ipod touch recognizes my wi-fi but nothing will actually sync from my computer to my device as well as possible ways to fix this issue.

    you cna only sync using the cable u got with your touch. second, when it recognizes it, u still need to tap the connection so that it connects. when ur connected, u will get a white/ blue wifi wave logo at the top of ur screen.

    still no connection

    ok i reverted my ipod touch to its factory defaults and the syncing is working now but it still cant pick up my wi-fi connection so i cant use email, maps, safari, etc. I think it might have to do with the fact that the ip address of the wi-fi it is finding is different from the ip address showing up on my computer. not sure how the numbers changed because the name of the wi-fi connection is the same.

    do you have a password on your wifi? jc cuz we did and it connected anyway.
    but yet... it did the same thing yours did and wouldn't let me use my wifi.
    so... do you have it password protected? and did you type the pass in?

    otherwise idk what ur problem is.

    Each device on a network has a different IP address. The SSID (name) of a network has nothing to do with it's associated IP address.
