ipod touch--can't get online at home via router

Just bought an ipod touch and want to use wi-fi to access internet at home.  I am able to log onto the home network, but there isn't an actual internet connection.

 

I am running XP, have a Lynksis WRK54G wireless router and have no idea how to configure it to allow the ipod access.  The IP address on the ipod shows: 169.xxx.xxx.xx.  Someone told me it is going to the default address, but I don't know how to fix this.

 

If any of you could help--in the simplest possible terms--that would be great!

Are any other devices able to access the internet through the wifi? And if it actually does say xxx for the IP, something is wrong. Generally Linksys routers assign IP addresses of 192.168.1.100 through 192.168.1.199 by default.

Sorry. It actually does give a full address (11 numbers)...it also shows a subnet mask number...do you need all the numbers to help?

 

Thanks.

First, do any other devices work on the wifi connection?

Try doing a restore through iTunes.

Did a restore ith the ipod...it works on other wireless networks, just not the home one, that's why it seems like something with the home router, but again not sure how or what needs to be adjusted.

Try resetting the router. There should be a reset button somewhere on it. Hold it in for 30 seconds.

You did it!  Thanks!!  We unplugged the router and reset it that way, but did not actually hit the reset button!
