    When I put WiFi ON, nothing happens, just spining wheel -> searching. I'm positive, that router works great, cause my Iphone 1g works without problem.

    Is it SW bug or HW problem?

    How can we solve this?

Is your wireless network password protected? If so did you put that password into the iPhone properly?

How to connect an iPhone to the Internet


Connecting your iPhone to the internet is an easy process. You just simply use any application on your iPhone which uses internet service.

Your iPhone can either use WiFi or Cellular for internet access.

- A WiFi network is simply a wireless network. You can find them at coffee shops, libraries or even at your house if you a router setup for wireless access.

- Cellular data networks allow Internet connectivity over the cellular network. Check your carrier's network coverage in your area for availability.

When you use an application on your iPhone that requires internet service it will either connect to the last WiFi network used, or if that network is not available it will list all available networks in range. You can simply tap on the network you wish to join and it will connect. If the network requires a password it will show a lock icon. If no Wifi networks are available your iPhone will connect over the cellular data network and fees may apply.


To see all the Wi-Fi networks in range, from the Home screen choose Settings > Wi-Fi. Tap a network to join it.

My phoone can not read my network


What I have noticed with a lot of the iPhones is, if you are trying to connect to a wireless network make sure you are connected via wifi, then open safari and it should ask you to log into the router/network if you cannot even connect to the wireless network make sure that the router/modem is not blocking any devices.

My wifi doesn't connect to any routers but it connect to my laptop ad-hoc.Still i am not able to use internet through ad-hoc.I have tried restoring my iphone, reset and erase settings, reset network...


Ad-hoc is a computer to computer connection.
You need to change the wireless configuration to Access Point (Infrastructure) mode with encryption.

Your wireless card in your computer or laptop needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings eg. the SSID and encryption key
The encryption key (network key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the computer or laptop to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer or laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Iphone3g error trying to connect the internet, but every time I get an error. Why is my iphone3g unable to connect the internet?


it's hard to diagnose your situation with out knowing a few things.. who's your carrier, is this a wifi or edge issue.. if it's wifi does your phone connect to the wireless router at all? if it is seeing your router fine can any other device or computer properly access the internet using the same wireless protocol. if it's edge. what are your edge settings. but if it's edge, you'll get the best support by contacting your cellular carrier.

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.

WIFI Connection Problem - connects only to EDGE


If you want to use wifi only when your at home you can go in and manually disable the cellular data so the internet will only be wifi based. Probably saving you MB's and data cost.

Go to Settings, General, Network, then simply turn off the Cellular Data. Then it won't connect anymore to the cell data and rely only on wifi when your connected to it.

And simple follow the same steps and revers the process when your out on the go.

Thanks

No data over WPA2 WiFi


A few things to try if havent all ready. Make sure your other wifi devices can connect to internet in this network. Toggle airplane mode 15 seconds. go to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset All Settings. In wifi settings join other network and manually enter SSID and wpa2 password, rather than trying to connect automatically. Turn ask to join networks off if you have to. Make sure the Wifi symbol is next to AT&T on top of phone. Open safari. If you are able to connect to router but not internet in safari. Check your Dns settings on iphone, if iphone is not resolving dns, make sure your router is configured properly.

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.
