    Use a different browser. I don't know how to set Safari's redirect limit, or even if there is a way.

    After you get this message, go into your WiFi settings and click the "Forget This Network" button. Go back one page, and try to connect again. The next time you open Mobile Safari, it should allow you to connect without a problem. If that doesn't fix it, go to Safari's settings and clear the cache, cookies, and history. I have this problem often connecting to the network at Bruegger's Bagels, and this usually fixes it and allows me to connect.

    OP, are you using a bookmark to connect?

    If so, try typing it manually in case the bookmark points to an old url.

    Then make the bookmark again if you get in.

    The same thing happened to me when I was trying to get on Accuweather.

    Errors as such are usually to do with the website, and its configuration. What website are you trying to access, exact URL/link if possible.

    Safari problem

    Well, I have an ipod touch and the message "to many redirects occured" keeps happening when I want to check my mail. I looked on a few sites and followed what they said but didn't help. I desided to find out the problem myself which worked. I basically just cleared history, cache and cookies and I succeded. Now I can check my mail without the annoying message coming up.

    I hope it helped everyone
