    Hello Apple Support Communitites
    I have a problem with Wi-Fi since updating it to iOS 5.0.1.
    When I go to my room, Wi-Fi drops a bunch, even when the router is right next to my room (blocked by a wall, if that helps)
    Here are two screenshots, first in the room where the router is, and the next in my room.
    The red marks are the Wi-Fi signals.

    Are you covering the top of the device? Mine does that but not as bad when I hold it at the top of the device near the camera. It could be a hardware issue but I'd wait till the next software update comes out.

    Do you mean 5.0.1 or 5.1?

    Doesn't really solve the problems

    Thetonyk123, I have a rubber cover covering the top of my iPod, and I tried taking it off, but the Wi-Fi signal is pretty much the same, with the Wi-Fi signal still weak in my room.:(
    Also, I don't get what you mean when you hold it at the top of the device near the camera, the Wi-Fi signal gets better. I don't get how would you do this. :confused:
    Also, if you cover the top of the device by doing this, won't the Wi-Fi signal get worse?:confused::confused:

    As long as the wi-fi doesn't disconnect, it has more than enough signal to connect to the internet. If you want a constant good connection, I suggest getting a better router.

    Try this, I ment usually when I hold at the top of the device like when I cover the camera area my wifi signal drops.

    You could try to connect to someone else's router
