HP office jet6500a is not detected by ipad2. Using an arris 550 modem and linksys wrt110

Can't connect wifi to my iPhone

The problem is with the IPhone not the router. check with for an answer to your problem. Apple devices are very problematic when connection to some WiFi devices. BTW, NEVER post your username and password of any device in a public forum. If a hacker has any idea of your location, you just made it very easy for them to hack your network. I would change both the username and password for your own safety

My iphone wont work with my linksys wifi

Hi carguy1955,
Does your linksys access point have MAC filter and/or passkey (like WEP, WPA, etc)?

If it has MAC filter, then please follow these steps:
  • On your iPhone, go to Settings
  • Then General
  • Then About
Scroll down to see the Wifi's MAC address, and note it down. Then go to your linksys's wifi router's page, and add this to it's MAC filter list.
If there is any other problem than above, then do mention it, and I'll try my best to assist you.

When I set the security setting to high on my Linksys Wireless G, none of my iphones or ipad will connect. I put in the password and it doesn't find the router. What am I doing wrong. If I have it...

Hmm. Make sure you're typing the right password; you might want to change it on the router, then try it on the Apple device? Did you set your router to a "closed network" setting, i.e. without the name of the network you can't connect at all? If not, maybe you have your router restricted so that only approved devices can connect. If none of these appear to be the cause of the problem, unplug the router, plug it back in, and reboot your Apple device. If that doesn't help, I would talk to linksys.

My iphone 3gs cannot connect to wifi network at home. i am using linksys wrt100 wireless router.

A wireless client has to support WPS ( wi-fi protected service) function in order to use to add the client to your WPS enabled Wireless Router. check the iphone user manual of your wireless client to see whether it supports the WPS function. If your wireless client does not support the WPS function, you have to configure your wireless client manually so it has the same SSID and wireless security settings, you could also go into the advanced wireless settings and enable WPS ( push and connect ) if your router has this option this is sort of specifically for things like mobile/cellular phones and ipods...hope this helps please vote thanks

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?
