i've been searching the internet tirelessly for a solution to my problem for a couple of weeks now, and have yet to find a solution other than "it's a bug and apple won't fix it." so i decided to register here and see if the good people at macrumors have had any experience with this problem. i'm running a itouch 2g 8gig with firmware 2.2.1 (5h11a) the problem is this, when i first purchased my ipod touch, i could connect to both my neighbor and my schools wireless networks. i have no idea what the specs are on either my neighbors or schools wireless networks, i just know that they are both unsecured and lacking a password. the problem is, my itouch does not recognize that these networks even exist anymore. when i type all of the information by hand, it says "network not found", for both of the networks. i then tried going to my local staples, where there is free wifi for public use, and i use my laptop quite often and my itouch did not recognize the staples wireless network. what makes this problem even more confusing is the fact that all of the other people i know that purchased an itouch 2g seem to have exactly the same problem, after about a month and a half, their itouch doesn't recognize any non-secure wireless networks. and in yet another terribly strange twist, it recognizes secure wireless networks with no problems. also to be noted, itouch 1st generation has aboslutely no problems connecting to my neighbor, school, or staples wifi. any help would be greatly appreciated.
