    HI all need some help here for the past week my ipod touch 2gen v3.0 has been getting really bad wifi speeds and horrible ping rates

    before any of this the speedtest.net app said my ipod touch had a speed of 9-10 mbs on avg with a ping of 40-80. now I have a speed of 20k-around 56k speed with a ping of 35,000. my other pcs on the same speedtest.net server that i used on my itouch get a 24mbs and a ping 35 and my two laptops get around 12mbs with a ping around 45, which is the norm for them.

    and my router is a neatger fvg318

    any help much appreciated

    also distance from router is not a factor in this problem

    yea the new update to 3.0 was never good
    the only perfect firmware i know is 2.2.1 so you might wanna contemplate downgrading.
    other people will for sure say they experience no problems but i know from experience there are alot of problems with it jailbroken or not.

    Tried 3.0 and 3.1.2 on a 2G Ipod without jailbreak and both had bad wifi,really bad.
    Downgrade to 2.2.1 and you will see...

    Apple is leaving Ipod 2G away... i think never will be a fix for the wifi issue, as 3.X firmware works ok on new devices....

    So,stay in 2.X at least at the moment...
