IPhone not pickign up wireless network...

I love my new phone and it is working great except that it only seems to pick up my home wireless network intermittently, even when I am quite near the router. I have a good wireless signal throughout the house that my laptop picks up, and there don't seem to be any problems with the network setup on the phone, but the iPhone is on the Edge network almost all the time. Occasionally I see the Airport signal icon, but I thought it was supposed to default to the local highspeed networ when available? Is there a setting on the phone that I am missing?

Re: iPhone not pickign up wireless network...

You are right: the phone should default to the wireless. How do you know the iPhone is on your WIFI? Go to "settings, WIFI Networks" and see if there is an IP address assigned by your router. You can't from the icons alone.

Is the iPhone 5 faster than the 4s?

3g is the ability to use your phone as an internet hotspot to surf the web.#160 It’s a very convenient backup to have because having no wireless can be annoying.#160 The new iPhone 5 is equipped with something called “4g.” Depending on your network, 4g can more than double the speed of your old 3g phone.#160 It can be as fast as home high speed wireless.#160 As an iPhone geek, I’m really excited about this new development!

My htc hero is recognizing every wireless network except the one in my home. My 2 laptops and old phones are able to read the but my htc hero cant.

Make sure your network isn't hidden. Also, what mode is your networking running in? 802.11 (a,b,g,n). Trying putting it in mode b and see if you phone picks it up. Also, make sure that you haven't limited access to your wireless access point/router.

Re: IPhone doesn't connect with wifi automatically - password not recoginized HELP!!!

Yep, I had the same problem with my iPhone as well (32GB 3GS).
Had the signal NO problem for about a week then POOF it was gone. WTF?
Prowled the boards looking for a solution.
Tried resetting the phone, resetting the Wi-Fi, switching airplane mode on and off, forgetting the network, etc.

Go unplug your wireless router's power cord.
Wait 30 seconds.
Plug it back in.

Your iPhone will reconnect, and you'll be back in business.
