A new problem: I can no longer connect to coffee shop  wi-fi (eg.: Starbucks) using my new iPod Touch (5th gen). I'm fine in a private home when given the password but in the coffee shops the iPod "sees" the network and checks it off but doesn't connect. The log in page never shows up. Any thoughts?

iPod touch, iOS 6.0.2

    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost

    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at

    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    - Reset network settings: Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings

    - Restore from backup. See:

    iOS: How to back up

    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.

    Thanks! I 've done the first 2 and will be going by public access later today and will check it out. If that doesn't work, I'll try restoring from back-up.

    That seems to have done the trick! No problem getting on at the coffee shop today. Much appreciate your help.
