    I turned on location in settings, and maps cannot find my location, I've just downloaded the app twitterific and that couldn't get my location either.

    I have an itouch 1g, does any of you know how I can fix this?

    EDIT: I might add that i've tried it on several wi-fi networks, also when I was outside etc.
    I can't seem to get it to work

    So when I use that, I can pinpoint my location everywhere I am with wi fi at that time? Or must I put the location on the web browser each time?

    Thanks (And btw, mac adress thats just the routers IP adress right? (for example 192.166.2.1)

    No, you will need to submit the MAC number and the address of every single router you want to be location aware.

    To start with add the router you use at home and the one you use at work.

    The MAC Address is hexadecimal and looks like this 01:23:45:67:89:ab. It is found on the bottom of your router.

    Skyhook registers the info you submit. So anytime I'm at home connected to my wifi, it knows that the iPod is connected to my wifi network, and I gave skyhook the location of my wifi network. Thus, it locates me.
