Hi, New Ipod Touch user. when I search for WiFi connection - open unlocked connections and find them, I click and select these but then when I go into safari; I get the "cannot open the page because it is not connected to the Internet message".
Is there something else I need to be doing - I am able to see a few open - unlocked WiFi networks even ones named Free Public WiFi at work, but, even with these click - I have no access to internet??
Have you tried the basic troubleshooting here:

Is it your router or is it a "free" wifi hot spot. For some free wifi you may have to do something. It depends upon the specific setup.
Have your :
- powered of and then back on the router:
- Reset network settings on the iPod:
Settings>General>Reset
- Have you reset your iPod:
Press and hold the On/Off Sleep/Wake button and the Home
button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
