I recently bought an ipod touch (one reason because of the wi-fi web browsing) and I can't seem to get my wi-fi to work. I find plenty of wi-fi networks but all of them seemed to be locked. Most of them are 2WIRE networks (e.g. 2WIRE685, 2WIRE144, etc.). Does anyone know the password for these networks?

Hi and welcome to G2G,

Do you own a 2wire? if so the last 3 digits of the serial number will identify your 2wire. the WEP key is below the serial number in brackets. it is ten digits.

A 2wire is a gateway, modem router in one unit. Many ISPs provide them to customers to replace modems and routers so it's all one unit. They by default come encrypted with a WEP 64bit key.

Do you have a router?

Do you have a router? You need some device to provide wireless access.
