I have essentially this same problem. In my case, the network name, encryption type, username, and password are all forgotten. That seems ridiculous. Couldn't the iPod cache more, even with a hidden SSID?
(Essentially same as http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2227313)
Apple, please fix!
Hey, this is weird, but I think I just found a solution.
This time I tried connecting to the network in this way.
First, it is always missing from my list of networks when I try to join.
Fine, it's hidden, so I understand that.
Also, I have left Ask to Join Networks ON.
This time I just typed the name of the network and hit join (security was set to none).
This network actually has security, but I just ignored that.
When I hit join, it told me I couldn't join.
But then it joined anyway!
It looks like it's working fine for now.
I still consider it a UI bug, because it says I couldn't join and then let me join. Weird. But all I have to do now is type the network name each time, which is way better than: select security and type username/password too.
If you tap Settings > WiFi > Other and then re-enter your network name, security, and password the touch should remember your hidden network. If it doesn't want to do that, then reset the network settings (Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. The the touch restarts, log in via the Other method above.
