    I upgraded to 2.2.1 tonight and my 2G is getting a weak signal. Occasionally it goes back full bars but then drops again to just one.

    My internet connection is working fine with my computer so it isn't that. 2.2.1 screwed up my 2G!!!

    I tried turning it off and on with no luck.

    I think I'll go back to 2.2

    The signal is definitely weaker with 2.2.1 than with 2.2.

    With 2.2 I could walk around my entire house and still have a strong signal. All bars would light up.

    Now, even 5 feet from the router I'm getting 2 bars. I had the iPod forget the network and I reconfigured the settings. I also unplugged my router and let it reset and that seemed to do the trick as far as getting any kind of signal.

    It's still weak though. From a few feet away I'm only getting around 34 in Wifi Checker(free from App Store).

    It's a brand new router I just bought last week so I know it's working.
