    Is the wifi you are connecting to yours, and nearby? Wifi has a limited range, and when I stray too far from my router I get the same symptoms as you. At work the number of bars I get varies depending on what direction I'm facing and the weather outside.

    My point? Wifi can be reliable if you stay within range and are not blocked by walls or interference from other radio frequency devices. My laptop's wifi connection goes bad if my microwave oven is in use, for example.

    Normal. You might check that the antenna(s) on your router are tight and pointed the "right" way, whatever that is.

    Has anyone enabled security or changed the password on the router you're trying to access? When my Touch looks for new wifi sources, it will try and connect, showing a few bars, until it fails to pass the router's security.

    That's all I've got. If you can find another access point and try your touch there, making sure it's an open access point, then maybe we could narrow down if your Touch really has a problem or not.

    Are you sure that the DNS is set to the same thing as the Router in the settings? That's what happened to me too, one second working fine, next second not working at all. The DNS fix worked like a charm.

    Wifi connects/disconnects

    This is happening to me too!

    Tried to re-jailbreak after a not so successful 1.1.3 jailbreak. Am 1.1.1 now and cannot jb because the wi-fi has become unusable. It takes sometime to find the router, gets connected, and a little while later gets disconnected.

    There are 2 ipod touch in the house so I can pinpoint my ipod touch as the problem since I can connect properly using the other one.

    Have tried to look for a solution on how to fix wi-fi issues but no answers found.

    Anyone, please help.

    =====
    Security used is WEP, am not so sure how to find that DNS setting/fix
