    So, i dont have a wifi connection at my house, but there are ones around me but most of them have passwords. i can connect to 1 that has a password, and i see the bars when it connects but i can never use anything that needs the wifi connection even if all the bars are there. can anyone tell me if i can make the connection stronger or fix it somehow... thanks

    You are probably connecting to a neighbors wireless router, but he doesn't have it connected to a modem. I had this happen to me a few times.

    There is really no way to make the connection stronger from your end. I have heard a rumour that if you drop an empty pringles can on your router antena, It will boost the range.

    that rumor you heard is true my friend. it works just as well if you throw your ipod touch into a pringles can
