    Hi everyone,

    I got my 8gb iPod touch 2nd gen, but I've been having a slight problem, and I'm trying to narrow down whether my touch is messed up or there is a firmware bug.

    NOTE: TO HELP YOU MUST BE CONNECTED TO WIFI

    Please do the following to check if yours is having the same issue:

    1. Make sure you are connected to wifi and can easily reconnect

    2. Turn off wifi

    3. Shut down your iPod touch (hold sleep button for 10 seconds or so, then "Slide to power off")

    4. Turn on your iPod touch, wait for it to boot

    5. Turn on wifi, but STAY ON THE WIFI SCREEN

    6. The network should appear and have a blue signal icon by it, and have a checkmark next to it

    7. Wait for 10 seconds or so, to make sure it has time to connect

    8. Please post, Is the connection icon in the status bar at the top left of your screen next to the word "iPod"? Can you connect to the internet?

    If you can no longer connect, you've experienced the same problem as me. You can restore connection by restarting your ipod with wifi on, or sleep your ipod for a minute and turn it back on, at which time it will connect again.

    Please post your results. If this is a bug I'll send a bug report to apple so hopefully it can be fixed.

    I'm not a moron. I've restored etc... I think it's just a bug or my ipod is broken, and I want to confirm which one it is.

    it's comletely normal. it's just that you expect it to connect right away but it doesn't.
    don't worry

    If you leave it on it will NEVER connect. It's a bug or a broken ipod. It will only connect if you leave it in sleep mode for a few minutes or reboot again.

    It connects quickly and perfectly if it boots up with wifi on.

    So you have a 2g touch and it connects flawlessly after these steps? or does the same thing happen? I'm confused

    Ok, I've confirmed the exact same thing happens on my 2g ipod touch as well, however you missed something. Instead of shutting down or going to sleep mode to restore your connection all you have to do is turn wifi off and back on again (a second time). Lemme know if that works.
