    So far none of the 'cures' for the lack of range/distance on the iPod after upgrading to v3.0 have worked for me! I'm convinced it's a software problem that can only be fixed by Apple.

    mine is greyed out too i had a replacement touch as it needed a new battery everything was ok untill i upgraded to 3.0 now its greyed out and says no wifi

    I am using an iPod Touch 1G and i was so dumb to upgrade to the 3.0 version.
    Since the upfgrade i can't connect to any Wifi network. I also tried all suggestions (restore iPod, reset networking, use other network). It won't give a list of available networks either.
    To me now this equipment is useless and Apple must develop a fix or new version of the OS very fast. I can't simply accept that the software i bought ( 7,95€) messed up the device and that there is no possibility to downgrade or fall back to the version 2.

    Anyone usefull tips available?

    Good News

    This same thing happened to me. After I did the 3.0 firmware update the WiFi connection was made unstable and slow. Here I use an Access Point D-Link DWL-2100AP that activates the channel 6 by default. After many tests I changed to channel 11 and "Bingo".
    iPod back to work very well. If possible try the same procedure to confirm this until Apple issue a fix.

    oh, that's great. and for anyone who takes their Touch with them, expecting to connect at wifi hotspots here and there, I guess they are out of luck, huh? (what are the chances that all wifi's are on channel 11???)

    I wasn't able to join my home network today with mine or my kid's iTouches and after about a half an hour I went into my router and they were automatically placed into the blocked devices, I removed them from the list and works fine. Just another idea to look into...
  • colin oliver Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    a few people earlier in this disscusion said that the apple care people said that there would be an update on monday the 29 of june
  • David. Level 4 Level 4 (2,145 points)
    Rather than "blocked", don't you mean that the router is using MAC filtering, and the Touch wasn't listed? I use MAC filtering on my home router, but I don't bother with it on my MiFi as there's seldom a PC hooked up to my MiFi, so I'm not too worried about the security of the MiFi's networked devices. Mostly it's for me to play Pandora away from home.

    OMG it worked. I have a very old D-link 614+ router, and after changing the channel from its default channel 6 to 11, I got a faster connection. Not 100% but an improvement to what I was getting. Was getting 25-30kbps,now i'm getting 410-420kbps download speeds.
  • wdkuchler Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I know that is not the best solution to the problem but can serve as a hint to the developers of Apple. Let's see if more people confirm here that the procedure to change the channel 6 to 11 actually improves.

    I honestly do not return to the previous version because there are many advantages in this.

    Having connection issues also! Hpoe Apple addresses this issue soon, as I don't think we should have to change anything to fix this problem. This is on their end and Apple should step up and fix it!

    I've always used Channel 11 by default and still ran into the OS3 wifi issues. However, tonight, I had my modem/router scan for the "best" channel and it picked up Channel 1. So I changed it, and while the signal strength bar still moves between 2 and 3 bars all the time, the speed of the connection itself seems faster - and I haven't run into any problems going on the internet yet (after a while, the iPod Touch is connected to the network but can't go on the internet until I disconnect/reconnect).
  • BowtieCrazz Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
