After a long connection to a wi-fi hotspot, my iPod Touch suddenly won’t connect to anything. It can search some hotspots but not really connecting to any of them. What are my options?
IPod Touch not Detecting Wi-fi
Hi Maggie Alley,
Basically, it’s not a fault but a bit overload on the Wi-Fi Device (it’s a very common issue in iPhone, iPad or even in iPod touch.
You may try following tips solutions to resolve this issue:
Try turning Off and On your Wi-Fi module by going into the Settings > Wi-Fi >Turn OFF and then Turn it to ON.
Go to Settings > Wi-Fi and select a network from the available networks from the list.
Note: all those networks that are Closed/Private network tend to hide their names from the public Wi-Fi devices. In such a case Join your Closed/Private network by simply going into Settings > Wi-Fi > Other and then provide the network name and password with security code etc. In this way you should be able to get access to the internet again.
If the problem persists, restart your router i.e., Wi-Fi router
If the problem persists, try joining an open Wi-fi network which is not a closed one, not protected by any key and most importantly which is working on your other devices, should work on your iPod too.
If the problem persists, you might also be having a hardware issue because hardware issues can also cause such problems.
Upgrading device software can also help in resolving this issue.
Applying these steps may also resolve one or more of the following issues:
Cannot join any Wi-Fi Network
Low signals or very weak signals strength of Wi-Fi Hotspot
Occasionally connected to Wi-Fi network but cannot access the internet.
