    My WiFi was working great last night when I bought it. Then I decided to Jailbreak it using that one click jailbreak method through my touch and didn't really notice anything wierd last night. But today I am having massive issues with my WiFi, I can barely connect to anything and it's really slow. And now I can't even connect to the same WiFi spot that I was using last night just fine! The hotspot shows up on the list and then when I tap it it just says it can't connect to it! And earlier I couldn't even find hotspots! Should I try restoring it and see if it works again with stock set up?

    Btw im on my laptop using this exact WiFi spot that I was using last night with my laptop and my touch just fine, now my laptop can connect perfectly but the touch cant! what gives!?

    confirmed. I just restored my iPod and instantly wifi works. I guess that one click jailbreak has issues. And I know I didn't mess it up since u ca t really mess up a 1 click jailbreak.

    Unplug the power to your router and plug it back in, also try changing wireless channels using your routers config.

    I personally only used my itouch for a few hours before I jailbroke it so I cannot tell you if wifi stability decreases after you jailbreak it, but it should not decrease.

    For about 2 hours of heavy internet browsing I normally loose connection to my wifi about once or twice everytime, I think its a problem within the itouch OS that they are working on.
