My ipod touch 1st generation has no wifi signal. the wifi area is grey and will not let me click on it. and i have restored ipod like apple said and it still is grey and unclickable. someone help please need wifi to work please
Here is a way that solved the problem for me. Downgrade the ipod touch to firmware 1.1.4. You have to put your ipod into DFU mode ('not recovery mode) and you have to have an itunes version that supports this old firmware. 7.5 oder 7.7 i think. to load your own firmware you simply hold the shift-button while you push the restore button.
After you have firmware 1.1.4 on your ipod touch, download the jailbreaker "Ziphone". This programm has the option to fix the "no Wifi" problem. Look in the advanced options. In my case, this was the only thing that solved the problem. I tried restoring it often but nothing worked. After Ziphone fixed your Problem, you can update the Touch to the latest firmware. Wifi was still working, at least for me

You may find this has to do with your ISP's DNS settings.
First thing to try is to browse the page via a browser, if you get an error message stating it's blocked or similar then this is your problem. You can verify this is the cause by switching between wifi and 3g; if it works on one but not the other you know that's the fault.
Ensure your Wifi settings are configured correctly. Try loading different YouTube videos. If the problems till persists, try restoring your iPod to its original factory settings. To do this, right click your iPod in your iTunes Devices List and select the option to Restore.
If the WiFi section is grayed out. then this is generally a failure with the wifi antenna. sometimes it can just be the software. A restore using itunes will tell you a lot - if you restore and wifi is still grayed out the you ipod has a hardware issue you need to get it repaired
1. Start by syncing your iPod with your computer. When you do this, the iPod management screen will appear. Midway down that screen there's a button that reads "Restore." Click the restore button. This begins the process of restoring the iPod to its factory settings. After you click the restore button, iTunes will ask you to confirm that you really want to do this. If your iPod content is backed up, go ahead. 2. The iPod restore process includes iTunes downloading and installing iPod software and bug fixes. You will see a window that looks like this. Follow the onscreen instructions. **On a Mac, you will be asked to enter your computer?s password. On Windows, the installation will just proceed. 3. As iTunes restores the iPod, you will see a progress bar. 4. After the restoration process has completed, iTunes will pop up a window letting you know that it?s done. 5. Now you?ve got an empty, freshly formatted iPod. Now you can sync the iPod with your computer and download your iTunes library again.
