I just got a brand new iPod touch 4g for Christmas and have used it without incident until today. I have connected to several wifi networks, including my secured network at home and open networks at my university and elsewhere. However, as of this morning, it no longer even detects networks, it simply seems to indicate that there are no networks nearby. I tried this morning at school, even tried to type in the network's name but it didn't work. Then I tried at the Amtrak station and it didn't work. Now, I'm at home and I KNOW my wifi is working, since the computer I am typing this message with is connected. But my iPod still won't detect any wifi or connect when I type in the network name. How do I fix it?

    Try resetting your iPod Touch.

    Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    You should also use Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network settings.

    If this doesn't work the next step would be to restore it via iTunes.

    I tried resetting it, now I have a broken iTouch that says "Activation Required". The cycle goes on. How do I fix this please?

    I have this same problem. I thought it was the digitizer. New one was put on at a repair shop and still nothing. They said no sign of water damage or dust. Their diagnosis was that it probably is the motherboard is bad. I hate it... I can't back up my music that is on there.


    Very sad.
