    nah not really, unless you have your own router....

    its best to keep your fingers/ cases away from the wi-fi antenna, and thats about all you can do.

    on the other hand, if you had your own router you can tweak the settings to better the range and all that good stuff.

    Get closer to the connection. And I think it's illegal to do what you're doing.

    I read that using a case may affect the Internet signal.

    There's nothing you can do on your end.
    Either you get closer to the signal, or get your own router.
    Otherwise, in the configuration of the router, you might be able to increase the broadcast power. Or have them install one of those things that claim to enhance signal.

    I would suggest not holding your hand over the plastic on the back of the iPod when using it.

    I have a really powerful router, I can be in the next room from it, yet when I hold my hand over the wi-fi while watching a you tube video, it stops downloading video, I'm still connected, but the signal gets really low. its not even in a case.

    there's this awesome new method but you'll have to high lite it because it is so super secret
    BUY YOUR OWN WIRELESS ROUTER
