    Whenever I turn wifi on or off, or reboot, My iPod doesn't automatically connect to the network. Is there a switch somewhere or something? Thanks in Advance

    As long is Wi-fi is turned on, it should automatically connect to one that you've connected to before in a matter of seconds, and if it finds new ones, it should ask you which one to connect to (in an area where you never connected to wi-fi for example).

    Is it a hard question?

    Is this on the same network or is this on different networks?

    My iPhone will do the exact same thing as does my MacBook but I have my network setup to not broadcast the name; both devices will occasionally "forget" my network.

    There are also some issues with cheaper routers. I am not sure what brands they are but I have heard (and seen) some problems that seem to be cured by better hardware.

    Oh yeah, I forgot, You have to go into a internet app for it to connect. BUT, for some reason it says I have the wrong wifi password. Even though it was the same one I used to login in Settings then Wifi. Is there like a switch to chose what you use?

    Try this: select the WiFi connection and press the button at the bottom to 'forget' it and then set it up again.

    That makes me have to set it up it every time, Is there a way for it to automatically connect?

    try sbssettings or bossprefs and turn the toggle wifi on. That solved my problem when i first jailbroke.

    No it shouldn't. Just forget once, reset all network settings, then set it up again.
    And the password could be the encryption key, not the password so try that.

    I had the same issue when I tried connecting to a friend's wi-fi. It worked for a couple of weeks, then stopped working. I went home and tried it on mine, then went back and it worked.
