    Hi - I have a new Touch 2nd Generation that has not been modified. The company I work for has a password protected wireless network that we are allowed to connect to. Other people in my department have a Touch 1st generation and the first iPhone that came out. None of them have any problem connecting to our network. I connect to my password protected wireless network at home daily. However, when I try to connect to my work wireless, after I enter the password, I get a message box stating "Unable to join network "network name."

    So my questions are:

    1. Is there some fundemental difference between first gen and second gen iPod Touches?
    2. Has anyone else seen this problem and been able to find a work around?

    Thanks,

    Larry

    Are you 100% sure that you have the right password?
    Also, the password is char sensitivity (like if it is "a" or "A").

    Hm.
    Really the 2G should have better Wi-Fi signal strength than both iPhone 1st Gen and 1G iPod touch.
    So I dunno.

    I doubt that it is about strength problem, but I know that the strength will be raised at OS 3.0.

    I'm absolutely certain the password is correct. I even let our IT guys try it. They aren't going to do anything else about it as it's "my problem".

    Thanks anyway
