    From day one I have had a WiFi issue with my 2G touch. My default is WiFi off for battery life so when I would try to connect I would cycle between on and off at least once until it would finally connect. Every time ! It now connects first time every time I have tried since I installed 2.2. So is it 2.2 or the restore I had to do because I didn't have the current version of iTunes ?

    The thing where you have to toggle wifi on and off happened to me too.
    I'm about upgrade to 2.2, let's hope the figges it.

    Now I am having some serious issues with connecting to my network. The iPod touch detects the network fine but it keeps telling me unable to join the network. Before the 2.2 update it connected to my network fine.

    Check your router for any problems. The same thing happened to me, and after unpluggin and replugging my router, it worked fine.

    i had the same problem as everybody else but 2.2 seemed to have fix the problem until this morning when my ipod would randomly lose connection, power cycled my rooter and it seems ok now so hopefully 2.2 has fixed the wifi problem
