    Hey all, I'm having a problem and I just don't know what to do, it's driving me crazy. I have a 2G ipod touch, and here's what's going on. I updated it to 3.0, and then jail broke it right after with "redsn0w-win_0.7.2". Everything seemed to work fine and the jailbreak happened, but my wifi is completely messed up!

    Here's an example of what's going on, after a few minutes of using wifi on either safari or youtube, it just stops working. It says youtube is not connected, or safari is not connected......It does it within 10 minutes usually. Turning off and on the wifi and reconnecting dosn't work, the only thing that makes it work again is if you power down the ipod, and turn it back on. That takes ages.. every 10 minutes.

    So I restored it to 3.0, non jailbroken.. It worked fine for a week. lol
    I then re jailbroke it, and tada, crap wifi. I tried jailbreaking it 3 times, same result every time. I also have a 2nd ipod touch 2g, it's one of my family members, and it's the same exact deal with that one too.

    Note: All I do is install cydia with the jailbreak, though I did not use it to see if it was the problem. The wifi messed up anyways, so it can't be cydia, I guess..

    Is this a common problem? Please help me out

    Hm, really strange there. Try re-downloading your 3.0 and redsn0w.
    That never happened to me.

    However I didn't redownload redsnow, so that's the next thing to try I guess!

    I give up for now, I'm going to run it without the JB unless I can find the answer.. I'll just wait for 3.1 cause that's comming soon, right?

    bump.

    Sorry guys, but I'm sick of this.. I've been running my ipod without a jailbreak for about less than a months time, so I decide to try it again.. Within 10 minutes the wifi craps out. I'm so angry because of this..

    I could downgrade to 2.whatever but I would like to keep 3.0 if possible. Is there really no one else out there with wifi problems in 3.0? On a 2g ipod touch?

    maybe it isn't the jailbreak maybe its your router or the wifi chip on your ipod

    and I jailbroken my ipod touch 20 times, I have nevered had a wifi problem, and I taught my friend to jailbreak and he never had a wifi problem(but he restored, because he thinks jailbreaking is illegal

    Well that's the thing, the wifi works fine when it's not jailbroken. The router is all set up to work with the ipod (it's static, so it works 100% of the time..) As sooon as I jailbreak it (only 3.0) the wifi craps out in about 10 minutes.

    Not the router, not the ipod.
