    I have a small problem with my wifi connection, I seem to lose the internet really often, I have 100% strenght on my wifi signal, I do not lose my ip or dns. It's just that any application using the internet won't be able to.

    • The solution I found are to either close the ipod and restart it
    • Put it in sleep and then wake it up
    • Toggle the wifi off/on

    The internet work for 1 minutes up to 15 minutes, that my record right now.

    Any idea what could be the problem?

    I didn't have the chance to try on another router so far, but I have no problem on this one with my laptop.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It could be the router.

    Since you have a laptop, you can quickly and easily test this.

    Set up an ad-hoc network on your notebook, and be sure to name it something different than your router's network. Connect your iPod to that network instead of the router's network and see if the result is different. If you stay connected, it's your router. If you still disconnect, it's the iPod.

    I'd try a restore on the iPod next. If that doesn't work, then the only thing I can think of is that there's something wrong with the wi-fi hardware itself. I've heard of it happening before, and Apple will replace/repair it.

    If you haven't had the Touch that long, I'd just return it for another one, as I suspect it's hardware-related.
