    I have wifi on my computer and it give me 4 bars, then when I try and use the same wifi with my touch from the same spot, I can only get 1 bar. Is there any way to get more bars w/o going closer to the router?

    thanks

    Hmm, I don't think there's a way to increase it. It's the same for me, but it doesn't bother me too much. If I have my laptop, I'd rather use that

    You could stab your ipod with a knife and then put a copper wire through the hole.

    Wave the wire around until you get better wifi.

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL (that's a lot of 'Outs').
    OT: No, I do not think you can get better range.
