Question about Computers & Internet

Coby Kyros MD1042 will not connect to Internet

I went to settings>wireless and networks and turned 'on' 'wi-fi'. I touched 'scan' and a list of networks appeared including mine. I touched my network name and its window opened. Signal strength is excellent and security is WEP. I correctly entered my password and touched 'connect' It returned to the network screen where under my network name flashed 'saved, secured with WEP' and immediately changed to 'Obtaining IP address...' This is as far as automatic connection proceeds until screen shuts off. When I again turn on the screen, under my network name sometimes appears 'Avoided poor internet connection' (Note: I am 3 lineal feet from the wireless router and I KNOW it is working). I touch my network name and a window opens showing signal strength excellent; security WEP. I tried resetting the unit and attempted to connect. When I went to the settings> wireless and networks, Wi-Fi was still 'on' and 'obtaining IP address' still appeared under the name of my network.

I hate to be rude but WEP was broken several years ago. Use WPA or WPA2 or (best of all) a wired connection.

Make sure you have the latest firmware for your router and the latest drivers for your network card on the PC/laptop or console.

SOURCE: Connecting Ipod touch 8(GB) to Wi-fi

After fighting with this for the last couple of hours I have my ipod touch working with the netgear DG834G(v3) router. The fix is a bit odd and I am not entirely sure why it works but I thought I would share and hopefully it might help you out …

First I think that the WEP encryption simply does not work between these two devices and causes some very strange behaviour – the WEP 'authentication type' setting I had on the 'wireless settings' page was set to 'shared key' – I flicked this to 'automatic' & strength to ‘128 bit’ - hit apply and finally I found I was able to connect without an error message (after inputting the correct WEP key). Unfortunately the DHCP did not work correctly after this and I kept receiving IP addresses in the range of 169.254.x.x (an internal default) rather than my networks expected 192.168.0.x range. The Ipod touch couldn’t find any DNS servers or connect to the internet.


To get round this I set the router ‘security options’ to use WPA instead (WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)) instead of WEP. Set the new WPA password at the bottom of the wireless settings page - again hit apply - and configured the ipod to use the new password and WPA PSK instead of WEP. This worked fine – although it does mean I have to change the settings on all my other wireless devices around the house!

The weird thing is that although the router isn’t using WEP encryption changing the 'authentication type' setting back to ‘shared key’ in the WEP menu breaks the WPA connection again – very odd? I blame netgear and their obviously crazy wep code :)

SOURCE: Connecting Ipod touch 8(GB) to Wi-fi

netgear support software could be bad. The ipod might not be able to read signal. umm try restoring the ipod. then plug it to your computer let it recognize it and then before you add ANYTHING to it, go straight to the setting and put in the router number and everythign and see if it works. I know people hate it but restoring it usually works. Its just simple small virus's that hit your ipod through songs and stuff and it eventually makes everything stop working. So get back at me let me know if restoring it worked.

SOURCE: Connecting Ipod touch 8(GB) to Wi-fi

Hi,
I want to tell you that there might be two problems for your concern.

1. Your router is not working properly
2. Your Ipod Touch is not working properly

But it might be possible that both devices working fine just the compatibility issue.

First of all i can suggest you that you can upgrade the firmware for your router.

Then you can reconfigure your wireless setting on your router.

Then tried to put static ip on your ipod touch in the network setting option

IP address: 192.168.0.15
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1

Primary DNS: 192.168.0.1
Secondary DNS: 4.2.2.2

Then tried again to connect wirelessly with your ipod touch make sure you dont required to add mac address for you ipod touch and also you can click on the option called "Wireless Access Point"

Then you can see the option " Turn Access Control On" you can uncheck this option.

Try again i believe that will resolve your concern.

Thanks & Regards
Jaspreet Singh Saini

I have been trying to connect my LG-P970 to the internet but no use because I need to enter proxy data and I can't find anything called proxy in the options


Hi,

Follow the below steps, you do'nt need to install any PC suite, driver nothing.
1.Connect your phone via data cable. Do NOT turn mass storage.
2.Go to Settings->Wireless & Networks->Mobile Networks->Enable Data enabled checkbox
3.Then Settings->Wireless & Networks->Tethering & portable hotspot->Enable USB tethering
Now you can browse without giving proxy or anything. It just works like a wired connection.


Thanks,
Mr.Maduraikaran.

I have forgotten my wireless network password to connect to the internet. How do I recover it or re-set it (on my Coby Kyros Tablet)


Hi!

In order for you to remove the password, you need to reset your wireless router. You didn't mention what brand and model of your router, but anyway all routers have a "reset button" just look for it on your router. It is usually found at the back of the router and it is very small, you need a pin or anything long and thin to insert into it in order to push it for about 10 seconds.

Thanks for using fixya!

My new tablet will not connect to internet. i have the usb plugged into mt laptop. i do not have a wireless router?


open network connections on your laptop and select both the wireless adapter AND the internet connection adapter in there and right click on them and click bridge connections. Then go into the network setup wizard (XP) or network and sharing center and click connect to a network and choose adhoc connection. then open wireless settings on the coby kyros and connect to the adhoc connection on your laptop. You should then be able to connect to the internet on it
