    Hello All,

    I just bought an used 1 Gen Touch from eBay which was previously water damaged and the seller stated it will not connect to internet via wi-fi. It does find available wi-fi networks but will not connect to any wi-fi networks I've tried, secured and unsecured.

    It seems everything else works fine and was wondering if there would be anyway to fix this wi-fi problem? It is a great toy as-is but if I can have web access it'll be a much greater toy!

    Hmm. I had a similar problem.

    But the buttons wouldn't work. So I took it apart 1G.

    And well I tried to fix the Wi-Fi. If you want to take it apart here are my videos that might help you.

    It's not a "step by step" I just show the inside parts.

    the 1G's are easy to take apart. Not hard at all! And trust me I've broken iPhone's And Ipod was super easy!

    well here are the videos..

    I'm sure it's fixable. there might just be rust between the antenna and the connector. If you take it apart just be careful. If you don't trust yourself I wouldn't do it.

    well I can't go on it from work lol..

    But look up suninthyhands532 and just search iPod.
