    I've been having trouble with my iPod touch ever since I got it about a month ago. The problem is that the internet is super slow, it almost never loads pages and the emails also take forever to download. At first I thought it was to do with my wireless network (802.11b) so I sent up a local website on my pc and the iPod is able to download files really quickly (4mb in 5 seconds) from there. So that tells me that the connection between my network and my iPod is fine. So the problem must be my internet connection sharing. Can you guys think of anything I could try to improve the performance of the Internet on my iPod? Could the use of a tunnel or VPN work?

    edit: I did a ping from one of the computers on the network and while the response time was very good (3 ms) it has horrible packet loss (between 50 - 75%). How would I improve this? Do I need a new wireless hub?

    Thanks alot,
