    Yello everyone...

    I just got my brand new iPod touch 2nd Generation. whoo hooo....

    i was checking through stuff and everything is better (i guess) than 1G

    the speaker was pretty terrible but still hearable

    and I was trying to figure out which generation has a better WiFi Signal with WiFinder app.

    and 2G had slightly weaker signal than 1G.

    anyone experiencing that also?

    I don't really know if 2nd gen is better or worse but i do know that sometimes my wifi just goes dead all sudden. Only way to fix is wait for a while or restart and restarting it drains the battery.

    I have actually tested this myself using my friend's 2G Touch and my 1G Touch.

    The 2G touch could not even get a wifi signal from upstairs in my room, while my 1G could pick my home wifi and most of my neighbors.

    Both were running 2.2

    I guess if I get the 2G, I will have to put another router in my house

    Should just get a switch, two routers in the same LAN was so annoying to set up. _ _"

    I have personal experience with both the 1st gen and the 2nd gen.
    All I know is I never had wi-fi in 4 of my classes at school with my 1st gen.
    And now with the second gen, I get it all over my entire school just about.
    I'd say the 2nd gen has a SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER wi-fi antenna then the 1st.

    That's just from my personal experience. =]

    I have only used a 2G iPod Touch, because I own one, but the signal on it is pretty poor if you ask me.
