    Where does it show an ip address on the Touch? I found the mac address, but no ip address shown on mine.

    I can tell you with about 95% certainty, there is not a problem with your ipod, but rather your wireless network, or router setup. Reset your router completely, make sure its firmware is up to date, and reset any security you have setup on it.

    I don't think theres a problem with the router because I have only tried connecting at hotspots...McDonald's and the Airport,etc. and it didn't work..

    Oh thats even better, you've sent back the ipod based on trying to connect to wifi hotspots that you have no control over, and no way to verify there setup. These hotspots especially ones that require a login page to be displayed, have been problematic for people using the ipod touch. There is nothing wrong with the ipod itself, but rather the software running on it. Hopefully they will fix these issues in the v2 firmware in June, if not before.

    Many hot spots require you to go to a specific website before getting a connection--even if it's 'free' wi-fi. Try finding out the main web page (for Starbucks or whatever), open it and see if it connects that way. Once you authenticate on their network, you should be able to close the browser and check email, stocks, etc.
