IPod Touch not Detecting Wi-fi

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

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.
