Terrible network performance from iPod touch

    Is anyone else getting really bad network performance from their touches? SSH and SFTP performance is very laggy. Ping response time is also (unsurprisingly) terrible and goes up and down like crazy:

    PING ( 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=51.678 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=75.542 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=406.505 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=20.983 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=44.762 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=5 ttl=64 time=580.762 ms

    Loading web pages, downloading songs off of iTunes and browsing Youtube is fine (which makes sense I guess because the response times don't matter).

    At first I thought it was because my touch was in standby mode (screen off, music playing), but even with the screen on and active it was no better. All the other devices on my wireless network respond fine. My touch is currently sat about 30cm away from my WAP.

    Am I alone with this problem?

    I was yesterday. For some reason, it's much better today.

    I really don't know why, less the thunderstorm.

    My apps are installing better today too...?
