Ok, just to check. Sometimes it is required for router to be in pairing mode, depends on router. So just check to see if there is a pairing button and if so give it a press then try this.

Go settings, Wi-Fi and select the network you want to connect to (tap the network text, not the blue arrow on the right).

The iPhone will then ask you for a password. Check underneath or on your router and you will see a long wireless key with various characters in it.

Depending on your system enter into the password box the first 5 or 13 characters for non-hex, or the first 10 or 26 characters for hex. Mine is the first 10.

Then click "join" and the small Wi-Fi fan should replace 3G.

Any further problems please post me back and I hope this helps ya.

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.

I hope this article was informative. You can check out more of my tech articles by clicking here then going to the Tips section.

Your other computer is expecting to see a wireless network, and the SSID is the wireless network 'name'. You probably need to reset this to go to the internet via your mobile rather than the wireless network.

I have a WGT624 router. I have had verizon internet for about 2 months. Recently, I could not get on the internet using wireless but could when just using the modem. I have unplugged the router and then...


either you need to reconfigure the router for the wireless configuration or setup the router for PPPoE connection. if you have internet directly to the modem contact your router manufacturer if not then you need to contact your ISP and ask if you need to setup the route rwith PPPoE connection and get the user/password

Is the Iphone data plan mandatory?


Try going into your phone shop and asking them if they can upgrade it for a good price rather than buying a new one that has the internet. If they dont then maybe buy a cheaper phone that has internet or keeping ur phone and seeing if they have any wireless plug ins to plug into ur phone to have the internet. Otherwise you may have to buy the newer phone. Hope that this is helpful to u!

On which port of the D-link router did you plug the WRT160N router?

Do this setup.

Disconnect the WRT160N from D-link.

Connect a computer to port 1 of the WRT160N. Access the setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. you may need to type in the username and password for WRT160N. on the setup page Change the LAN IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1. save the settings.

Connect a cable from port 1,2,3 or 4 of the D-link router to the Internet port of the WRT160N. turn off everything then turn them on starting from cable modem>D-link >WRT160N then computer.

You should be able to access the internet.

Ethernet Cord for Router?


Hi,
I want to tell you that how can you get your password back or reset your wireless password.

1. Work on your wired computer which is connected with the netgear router using ethernet cable
2. Make sure on the rear side of your netgear router you can see four ethernet slots and one internet slot.
3. One internet slot is only for your ISP modem and rest of the four slots you can use any computer to connect with that using ethernet cable.
4. Click on start - Run - then type in "cmd" press enter and you will get black screen. under the black screen just type "ipconfig" you can see some information on your screen search for default gateway numbers.
5. Once you get default gateway open IE and type those numbers without anything else then press enter.
6. It will ask you for user name and password by default "admin" and password is " password "
7. Once you click ok it will open netgear setting page
8. On the left side you can see wireless setting which is under "setup" then click on that option
9. On the middle of the screen you can scroll down that page at the bottom you can see your security key or passphrase.
10. Or you can type new password on the same screen and apply those settings
11. Now try again to connect your device wirelessly enter you existing password or new password which you have setup.
12. Make sure one thing more on the left hand side you have option called "Router Status"
13 Once you click on that at the middle of the screen show you router status and you can find the option called "internet port"
14. We are getting ip under internet port
15. If we re getting ip address then you can simply try to connect wirelessly otherwise please run setup wizard to configure your router. you should getting ip under internet port.

I believe these steps help you to resolve your problem

Thanks & Regards.

Cant go wireless


I think the problem is not your laptop configuration. Can you check the setup configuration of the router it's maybe the wireless function is disable. Or try to reset the router to his default configuration. Press the reset bottom of the router for 15 second then try to connect your wireless connection if still not working setup again the router configuration.

thanks

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.
