I wonder if your router is set to perform MAC address filtering. If so, you have to either find the MAC address of the iPhone's wireless card and add it to your router's appropriate list, or set your router to not filter by MAC addresses.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos

My iphones and tablet are unable to join on my belkin wi fi why


Go ahead and do some investigating. Does connecting via wired LAN brings any results? Could it be that you're having 2.4GHz interference? Try switching your WiFi channel or moving your router away from large metal objects. If that doesn't work try connecting to your wireless network holding a device close to the antenna, inches away. Does this work? If so, your antenna or WiFi signal amplifier circuit could be dead. You can open your router up and do some further investigating with a multimeter, but if you suspect a hardware failure, it's probably best to not bother opening it up and checking up on your warranty options. Even if that doesn't work out, it's not like routers are super expensive these days.

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 want to locate my wi fi password for my iphone.


I am assuming that you are trying to connect to the internet using the built in wifi instead of the 3G. To clarify, iphones don't have passwords for wifi. Wireless access points and wireless routers are the ones that have passwords. If you want to connect to the internet using an access point or router you must get the SSID of the router or access point and also the encryption and password to join said access point or router.

Once you have this information go to your iphone and select the settings icon. Then select the Wi-Fi, then turn on the wi-fi (if it is off), then under choose a network select "Other" and then type in the name (which is the SSID), tap on "Security", select the encryption that matches your access point or router (wep, wpa, wpa2, etc) tap on "Other network" (on the top left hand corner) to go back to the configuration page, and then type in the correct password.

Once you have done this your iphone will automatically connect to the access point or router whenever it is in range and connect to the 3G when it is out of range of the access point or router.

Hope this helps.

Trying to connect my iPhone 4 to my WGT624 v3 router. My iPhone is detecting the network, but i'm getting the message "unable to join the network" .


Hi chaps,


I did two things to resolve this issue


1. Downgrade the router to a lower version.If your router is Netgear WGT624 v3 use this link to downgrade your router


http://www.davejackson.com/life/cant-access-wifi-with-ios-6-on-iphone-with-netge ar-wgt624v3-fix/


(this help to avoid getting a errro message "Unable to join network")


2. Reconfigure you Wifi network by going to setting ---->under choose a network---> others-----> Enter your SSID name (seen at the back of your router) ----->under the security tab selet the same encyrption standard as that of your router which you can see when you log in to the router (usually router IP 192.168.1.1) ---->setup ------>wireless setting----> security option. This one helps you to join your home wifi as soon as you enter your home.



I hope this one works as it worked for me happy.gif

I want to connect my iPhone 3G to my home wireless network using WRT54GS I have found the wireless security tab with the passphrase and Key 1. My iphone ask for a password. I have tried different...


The security type on the router is WEP.
In this case you will need to use the key 1. that will be the network key for your wireless network.
Check just next to the wireless security tab , you will see wireless MAC filter. It must be disabled. If it is Enabled then disable it and save the settings.
When you try to connect using the WEP key 1 , do you get any error message ?
If you get any error then try $ sign and wep key1.

Can't connect my Ipod touch to my router?


You must be sure to what router you are trying to connect. I understand you have a ZyXel and a linksys. You must have 2 wireless networks. Your wireless network must be secured, so you just have to use the correct password. I need more details. Try this http://technicalsupport.blog.friendster.com

Can't connect my Ipod touch to my router?


did you setup a wireless network ? if you didnt go to control panal and then wireless network setup icon and follow instructions (select automatically provide network key option) then follow instructions and finish. once you did that, search through wifi on youf phone it should find your WNetwork and then connect and enjoy. if you want to use internet and have an ADSL modem, make sure that the modem is connected to the internet RJ45 plug on your router. and from router to PC.

good luck, i hope this helps
