    my internet is working fine, the wifi has been running perfect on my ipod
    i restored my ipod and now the wi-fi doesnt seem to work, it says its connected but everytime i go on safari it says "cant find the server"

    there a few things you can do. sometimes, if it is a passworded wifi, and you enter an incorrect password, it'll still let you on, but not let you use internet (ie. cannot connect to server) so you can:

    1. forget network, and enter wifi again
    2. reboot your wifi (modem and router, computer is unnecessary, you can keep that on)
    3. go to the little blue arrow, scroll down and hit renew lease, it works sometimes, but use it as a last resort

    i'm not really sure what it does myself, but it worked once for me.

    hmm.. does the internet work for the computers that are connected? or is it working for everything except your ipod

    no, i use a macbook and the internet works on it fine, the wi-fi was working great but then jailbroke my ipod so that intaller.app would work for 1.1.3 but then the wi-fi didnt work, so i restored it again so its just a normal ipod again

    i've jailbroken my ipod tons of times already, and i have never really had any problem like what you are. you should maybe give the modem/router some time to rest and try again in a little bit. sometimes that happens to me, but not as a result of jaiblreaking.

    sry, wish i could help more.
