If you're not gonna need the 3G network, you can turn it OFF by going to Settings>General>Network>
... you will see there all the networking switch. Turn OFF 3G by tapping the switch.

What Type/Brand of router ?????

Apple's iPhone is a multimedia connectivity tool.
As such, the iPhone employs a sophisticated system to keep you connected to the web via WiFi signals so that you can stay up to date with email, mapping and media.
To use the iPhone's WiFi feature just follow these steps.
Tap a network.
If you have not yet used your iPhone's WiFi or if you're in a new WiFi area, the iPhone will show you a list of available networks.
Tap the network that you want to connect to in order to connect.
If there is a password required a little lock icon appears.
Enter the password to connect to locked networks and continue to surf the web.
Monitor your signal.
As you use your iPhone, especially if you're moving around, you should take a look at the signal strength of the connection.
The strength is indicated by a small, black broadcast symbol that stacks arches, or rounded bars, on top of one another.
The more bars there are the better the signal.

Make connecting to WiFi automatic or manual.
The iPhone is equipped to automatically search for available networks and connect you to one.
If you do not want the phone to search for networks, select the "WiFi" option on the phone's menu.
Then select either the on or off option of the "Ask To Join Networks."
Turning this option off requires that you find networks manually.

Forget a network.
Once you connect to a WiFi network once the iPhone automatically remembers the network and connects you to it at a later opportunity.
To forget a network so you don't get automatically connected choose the "WiFi" option on the menu.
Then tap the right arrow button next to one of the networks that the iPhone already remembers. Then tap "Forget This Network" to erase the phone's memory of the network.

Troubleshoot Wi-Fi Connection Problems on an iPhone
If you experience Wi-Fi connectivity issues on your iPhone, you may need to reset the Wi-Fi connection.
Your connectivity issues could be caused by the wrong password if you are having trouble logging into the Wi-Fi network or from a problem in your iPhone's settings.
By resetting the Wi-Fi connection, you are clearing out the previous settings created when you first connected to the network.

Tap the Settings icon on the iPhone's home screen, and tap the Wi-Fi tab.
Swipe the switch on the Wi-Fi tab to ensure Wi-Fi is enabled on your iPhone.
Tap the blue arrow button on the network tab you are connected to in the network list, and tap "Forget this Network."
Tap the "Forget Network" button that appears on the pop-up menu to confirm the action.

Tap the Wi-Fi Networks tab in the upper-left corner to return to the previous screen, and tap the network's tab in the network list to re-join it.
Press the Home button on the iPhone, and tap the Safari icon on the home screen to test the Wi-Fi connection.
Tap the blue arrow icon on the network's tab if the connectivity problem persists, and tap the "Renew Lease" button at the bottom of the network's window.
Tap the "Renew Lease" button on the pop-up box to confirm the action.
Tap the Home button on the iPhone, and tap the Safari icon on the home screen to test the network connection.

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.

The phone used to connect to the internet with wifi and 3G. Now it only works with 3G. It sees the wifi network, but says that it cannot connect to this network. It does this on every network I have tried...


If your looking to use only wifi at times. You need to go into the setting and shut off the 3g data and have only the wifi option active.

Cellular data over rules wifi at all times. That's their little trick at getting you to use up all your data plan.

Here's the steps:

1. Go to Settings
2. Scroll to Network
3. Cellular Data - slid to OFF
4. Tap General on the top left
5. Tap Settings on the top left
6. Scroll up to Wifi and tap
7. Make sure Wifi is on and finding networks.
(Note: Only networks without the lock are public networks unless you know the pass code to log on)
8. Make sure Ask To Join Networks is to OFF
9. Click the arrow blue arrow on the network you connect too and make sure HTTP Proxy is set to OFF
10. You should Connect just fine

To reverse this and go back to Cellular data. Follow instructions 1 - 5 except you wanna turn Cellular Data back On.

MY IPHONE 3G IS NOT CONNECTING TO WIFI...IT SHOWS ERRORS AT WIFI


What kind of error? Are you trying to connect to a wifi connection encrypted with a password? If yes, you have to enter the correct password to be able to access the internet.

If the error still persists, try to reset network settings. It should fix all network related problems.
Just go to Settings > General then press Reset Network Settings

When i select my Linksys WiFi connection on my Iphone I still has the "E" edge symbol on my Status bar even though wifi is selected.


You can tell iPhone is connected to the Internet over a cellular data network if you see ht1695_utms_onb.png,ht1695_3b.jpg or ht1695_gprs_onb.png in the status bar at the top of the screen.

Do you have problems connecting to any other wireless network with your iPhone?

Have you tried using the forget this network option on your iPhone for your wireless network followed by trying to connect to the network again, and/or using the reset network settings option on your iPhone which erases all previously saved wi-fi connections that you have successfully connected to with your iPhone?
Let me know....
