    Just bought an Ipod Touch 2G. Seems to be working fine in everything except for a common problem for many, which is the WIFI.

    It connects to WAP, WAP2, and no security just fine. But with all three, when streaming certain programs like Iheart Radio, Pandora, etc it gets a lot of interruptions and sputtering.

    I never experienced any issues like this with my Iphone, or 1G Touch.

    The only reason I ask if this is something to worry about, is because some people have said by changing from WAP to WAP 2, or disabling security it has fixed streaming issues, etc.

    But it didn't fix it for me on many of the programs. Some are fine like groove salad off the native ipod player, AOL radio, etc.

    So basically, I'm ok right? Just need to wait for the update to fix the wifi?

    yeah just wait, its the first software release for it, so they need to fix some bugs.. e.g. the very poor quality images in the photos app, and in google earth

    Oh yeah. I'm totally cool with waiting.

    I was more or less just making sure it's not a hardware defect in my unit cause I didn't purchase a warranty.. So I didn't want to get screwed.

    Ok... This is odd..

    Pandora streams fine without interruption as long as the screen remains on. If it's off.. Thats when it starts the interruptions? That make sense to anyone? Or is this apart of the same wifi glitches others are reporting?

    I tried searching for black light wifi related glitches, didn't find anything.

    Never had that issue with 1G Touch, it the Iphone 3G?

    When streaming Pandora, you should be able to turn the screen off without wifi interruption.

    One of three problems.

    1. Your internet connection sucks.
    2. Your wireless router sucks.
    3. You live in Iowa.

    Lol. Most likely one of the first two but you get my point. Or do you?
