    I have a problem where after 10:00 or 10:30 EST every night my iPod Touch doesn't read any wi-fi signal even when my computer is using wi-fi. What should I do? I have a 16GB Touch, version 1.1.1.

    Omg I've got the same problem as you. If anyone can say why this happens it would be great.

    Does this happen frequently or occasionally?

    It's been happening for the past 3-4 days.

    1. Is the wifi signal stable, whether its at home/work or something?
    2. Do any wifi signals appear at all when browsing for signals?

    For me it happens frequently around 11 pm or so. I can usually see other wifi networks but not mine. I would just use another network but they are all locked.

    I'm pretty sure I can still access my network on my other computers though.

    Wow.. my guess is to reboot your modem/router and see if that works. If not I haven't got a clue. :/

    Sounds like WiFi interference. Go into your router settings and somewhere in the wireless settings should be the area where it lists the current channel/frequency you are using. (Linksys routers seem to default to channel 11). Change this to a different channel -- the further away from your current channel, the better, then see if that clears the problem up. If it still happens try changing to a few other channels, testing in between each one until you get a stable connection. Also, make sure you don't have any other devices nearby that operate on the 2.4GHz spectrum and are in use (cordless phones or Bluetooth devices, for example) as they will interfere as well. (WiFi uses the 2.4GHz spectrum as well.)

    If none of this solves the problem, then check the access restrictions section of your router's setup and see if there any timed restrictions set.
