    Hi, I have a 5MBPS DSL internet connection. I'm using a modem set in bridge mode to use it with a router that does PPPOE login.

    The strange thing is that, on my desktop (wired to router), I can get about 4MBPS in speed tests, while on my wireless laptop I can get around 3.5MBPS. But on my ipod, the internet is so slow that when using the speed test app, it says around 200KBPS.

    What is wrong with this? I'm running a jailbroken 2.0.1 firmware

    The iPod has a slower everything. Less RAM, slower CPU/Bus, etc. Still, that's like EDGE speed. Go to 2.0.2.

    I agree, it's one of the most annoying things.

    its probably the itouch

    i have a linksys router with cisco running on 1MBPS and my ipod touch runs on around 900 KBPS so its probably the jailbreak on the ipod touch.

    I just resolved my problem, it turns out that u******* was running on my desktop and even though it was downloading at like 10kb/s, it somehow affects greatly the speed of the ipod touch, but not the computers. Adter turning it off, i can get about 3MBPS.

    Thanks everyone
