    Hiya,

    My iPod touch has no problem accessing my WiFi network at home, but when I go anywhere else at all and try to access any WiFi points that aren't secured, even in cafes that boast free WiFi points, it will either say something like "Could not join the network" or it will seem to join but then when I try an address in Safari it says "Could not find the server".

    Any ideas what's going on?

    What kind of router you use at home?

    And does it show up in your list as a router, what is it's name?

    go into settings select wi-fi, choose a network, then hit the arrow > next to the networks name. Find the DNS field, and type in 208.67.222.222. Those are the Open DNS servers. Worked for me :)

    Sometimes open networks are not as open as they appear. There have been a few that I had connected to a free network and then had to try a page three or four times until I was brought to a "login" page. This page was more legal than for anything else (you agree to hold us harmless, blah, blah, blah).

    Other times the networks may be locked in other ways. It is best to check with the place you are at to see how to connect.
