My three-year-old Asus router (with updated firmware) will not play nicely with either of two new 4g iPods (both with latest iOS). These two iPods haven't had trouble on any other WiFi networks, so it's obviously something with this router. Also, my MacBook Pro and an HP laptop both connect to this router via WiFi flawlessly. Getting connected to the network takes repeated attempts, and when an iPod does get connected, it usually won't get internet access beyond that. When it does get internet access, it lasts for maybe a minute and then the whole connection gets dropped. No connection to the router will survive an iPod being turned off; it always gets dropped and will not reconnect. I've tried every kind of encryption as well as using no encryption at all. I've tried limiting the router to various standards (b, g, etc.), to a single channel, and to a single, static IP address for an iPod. Nothing helps. I've reset network settings on the iPods, rebooted them, renewed leases, had them forget the network, and entered and exited Airplane mode. All to no avail. Before I dump money into a new router in a hail-Mary pass to get WiFi working, could someone tell me if perhaps there is something I haven't yet considered? Anything else I should try? Lastly, if I do have to break down and buy a new router just to get iPod WiFi working, is there anything I should look for in a router that will ensure compatibility? Thanks.
