Make sure not to use WPA passkey/passphrase as iPhone seems to really, I mean REALLY dislike WPA guarded routers.

Check the pw on the router. Make sure it is the same with the pw you are using for the iphone. If not, try resetting the pw, and also make sure the encryption type the router is using is compatible with iphone.

Try putting the router into pairing first before you do it

How do I get my iPhone to recognize my new Linksys router.


passwords are case sensitive, so the problem is possibly just that you have capitals in the password and these are not specifies when entering the password into the iPhone

WHY DOESN'T MY PASSWORD ON MY COMCAST ROUTER ALLOW ME TO CONNECT MY IPHONE TO WIFI?


Try this ....when you scan via iphone for your wifi instead of inputting password...go to the right chevron ....click forget this network.....then rescan wifi....then rein put password....it should accept.if not password for router has been changed....this means you need to go to routers ip (google it) at wwww.mywifirouterlogin.net. And input the user:pass assigned for that make model.then you will see the routers assigned password as it may not be the network key that is on the back or bottom of router housing.

Why cant i find my password for wifi connection on my ipad?


If you check your own wifi password than go to wifi setting and click Show characters check box but if you are using router and forgot your wifi router than try to reset your router wifi password. If you need any technical guidance than follow Mac Technical Support .

My iphone is not connecting with internet by wi-fi with my own broadband connection at home but is connected with the internet via wi-fi with my friends broadband connection at his home


you need to check your router setting first,if its lock then you should unlock it first and then you will get connected with Wi-fi,and you can go into router setting by typing 192.168.1.1 and then it will ask username and password,type "admin" and in iphone your wifi should be on ON mode.

IPhone Wi-Fi only works when it's really close to my home's router...


Home routers don't broadcast the wifi that far. Most places that have super strong signals also have what they call a wireless extender. That's an extra piece that broadcasts the signal even further.

That's the main problem though. Home wifi isn't that strong.

Cannot connect IPhone to 2wire :( HELP!


I had this exact same frustrating problem. The problem was a simple password issue. Although I had changed the password on the modem to my own personal one, that password only affected the administrator settings. When I used this particular password on my iphone it would put the checkmark next to the 2wire, but I would not get the wifi symbol at the top of the screen. I fixed the problem by using the 10-digit password supplied on the actual router instead. I told my iphone to 'forget' the network, then reselected it and when it requested my password I typed in the 10 digit number and 'presto,' i had wifi symbology! I hope this helps.

Sounds like there is a problem with the WiFi card in your phone, take it back to an Apple store, all Apple stores have a WiFi open network so you can show a Mac Specialist the problem, my thinking is if it doesn't connect at home then it wont connect to there network. If your phone doesn't work in the store ask to speak to the manager or assistant manager, be persistent and insistent if your iPhone is not hacked they will change it but you have to fight your corner.

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.

HERE'S YOUR SOLUTION :
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.
