Touch shows wifi connection but no internet

I've searched all over the web and this seems to be a widespread problem that no one has a surefire solution for. My ipod touch, not sure what generation, will connect to my home router and shows the wifi connected icon in the top left. However when I try to use Safari, Facebook, Weather Channel, or anything that uses the internet, it says there is no connection. Here's what I've tried:

- Restart ipod
- Turn wi-fi switch off/on
- Settings/Wi-Fi/Network/Forget this Network
- Settings/Wi-Fi/Network/Renew Lease
- Restarted modem and router
- Backed up ipod and restored from backup
- Restored as new ipod

Nothing has worked. I'm super frustrated because I've lost music that was from another computer that wouldn't transfer and don't know what to do. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

WiFi connection displays active but doesnt connect to internet

It sounds like you did your homework but try looking at it from a different perspective. Do you have any antovirus software that runs a built-in firewall that might be blocking your connection? Does tour router authenticate your device based on its MAC address? To be honest Ive only seen this issue when someone tries to connect using a free wireless signal thats provided by McDonalds, Panera, etc. Often once your device detects the signal it then needs you input to agree to a visiitor/guest policy.
