    heya.
    im having this problem on my
    ipod touch 2G with 3.0 firmware.
    before(on 2.2.1), the wifi is pretty fast
    and easy. but now,even though
    i can connect to some wifi networks,
    internet stuff is simply impossible to me.
    i dunno why.
    it says its connected to the network
    but i can't do internet stuff.
    for example, safari always say "can't connect ect"
    cydia also can't load or update or whatever.
    i can't do ANYTHING internet related. >.<
    help please..

    we cant legally give you the link but you can restore to 3.0 original (by any means you want) and then redsn0w 0.7.1 to jailbreak. (dont do redsn0w 0.7.2.. that version is sketchy)

    What is wrong with the redsn0w 0.7.2? I thought they fixed some bug in it.

    This Fixed my ITouch

    I had exactly the same problems after upgrading my ITouch to 3.0 software. Spent a few hours looking for the answer on the web. Tried everything possible in resetting, etc... I installed the SpeedTest app (free) and measured my download speed.. It was often about 30 Kbps which is very slow. Upload speed was about 375 KBps which is respectable. However the slow download speed was only a fraction of what I used to get and the unit no longer automatically connected to my network. Finally I upgraded my access point to a much newer unit and the problem was gone. Unit now connects consistently and downloads at about 2400 KBps! The old access point was still working fine with all other items in my place including a Wii, Roku Netflix box, and 2 computers. Obviously the WiFi in the ITouch has lost compatibility with some older access points and routers.
