    This morning my iPod touch wifi stopped working, the network name is there in the list, but when I tap it it says "unable to connect"
    I've tried everything from restoring my iPod to changing the router settings, still nothing.
    The only thing i can think of doing is updating to 10.5.7 on my MacBook yesterday and then syncing my iPod, but I can't see how these are linked, must be a coincidence.

    Just very annoying as my warranty ran out only 6 days ago!!

    EDIT: ok false alarm, I've found out it's because I had mac address filtering turned on on my router, but I'm not sure why my iPod mac address would have changed?
    anyway works fine now :D

    Are you sharing your macbook's internet through airport? I noticed that my internet sharing broke after updating to 10.5.7. In my case I was sharing via the ethernet port. Anyways, I simply turned Internet sharing off and then on again, and all was fine.
