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

IPOD touch 4G times out on login to facebook app


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.

I bought and Apple IPOD touch on ebay, 3rd generation, but it will not connect to internet. I am in a WiFi area but it says not authentic or something like that....any suggestions


Be sure you are in a "Free" WiFi area...some of the WiFi areas charge to use and therefore you will have to have a security code to use their system.

I have a 8gb itouch the WiFi section is greyed out and it says no wifi my firmware is 1.1.5 please help


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

I have the same problem but i use apple ipod touch 16G 1st gene


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.

  3. Make sure your iPod Touch is connected to your computer.
  4. Pick "iPod Touch" in the Source pane of the iTunes program.
  5. Click on the Summary tab.
  6. Choose "Check for Update."
  7. Select "Restore" and follow the instructions to finish restoring your iPod Touch. Complete an Advanced Restore
  8. If following the steps in the previous section did not work, follow these steps to perform an advanced restore. Turn off the power on the iPod Touch.
  9. Plug the iPod Touch into your computer.
  10. Power on the iPod Touch.
  11. Press the "Home" and "Sleep/Wake" buttons together for 5 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
  12. Release the "Sleep/Wake" button but continue holding down the "Home" button. The iPod Touch should reboot, and iTunes will notice the iPod Touch in recovery mode.
  13. Return to the above section and follow those steps to restore your iPod Touch.
WARNING

Do i need to be in a wifi area to get wifi on my ipod touch?


Yes, you definitely need to be in range of a Wireless router. I wish Wi-Fi was like phone service where you can get it anywhere you go, but that's not the case.
