    For the past few days, since I got my touch, I've been trying to connect to my schools wireless internet. The thing is I know the password, honestly practically every student knows the password. Anyways I entered the password and it always said something like "Failed to join bisdairdata". I know I entered the password correctly and I know they didn't change the password because my friend who has an ipod touch as well (its 1G tho) is able to access the wi-fi using the same password and other people can access via laptop but for some reason it wont work for me. A few days ago I got it to work, somehow, but I forgot to set it to not ask me to join the network so when I put the touch to sleep the wi-fi went off and when I turned it back on it wouldn't go back to it anymore. Can someone help me?

    Restore iPod, that usually fixes most problems.

    DON'T RESTORE.

    Is there a Mac Address filter on the Access points at school? Because that may be what is preventing you from joining.

    Try resetting all setting within General in Preferences.
