Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
I cannot get my IPhone and AT&T 2wire to get an Internet connection. My IPhone shows that I have wireless connection, but whenever I try to go to a web site, or check my email, it said I do not have an Internet connection! When I'm outside of my "2wire router", I have NO problem picking up and connecting to any other wireless connection. Has anyone else had this problem, and how can I fix it? It is frustrating especially because the IPhone is AT&T, and so is my router!!! It was then suggested that I downloaded the IPHONE applications, but I can only get so far... I get an "ACTIVATION ALERT" that says, "No signal detected. Signal is required to complete activation." I finally drove to where I have signal, and "completed the activation", however, when I got back home, I am having the same issue. (Showing FULL signal, but NO INTERNET connection on my IPhone)
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.

Hello again Colleen. I'll do my best to get this going for you as I can imagine how frustrating it must be. I too have weak signal at home and really appreciate the wireless connection. We might have to go back and forth a couple times, so please be patient. :)
Do you have other wireless devices connected to this 2wire router? Are they working properly?

I've tried in vein to connect my company's iPhone for testing purpose. I even reset the whole phone but the wireless simply refuses connection. I then remembered something about firewall then... I added the iPhone's MAC address to my 2WIRE '2701HGV-E' router and save. The next thing I try was to enter the 10 digit pin again... IT WORKS! Power off and power on the iPhone and i'm on wireless connection. Awesome...

i just figured out a way to do it.
First, you have to change the DNS, and restart your modem. Download this app from the app store called Easy wifi or device scape and it may help you to bypass a ton of bugs. Also i tried changing my password a couple of times and it actually worked! my iphone connected and i used safari like on a usual network.
I also tried to bang my router with a hammer, but that didnt work eiter. LOL.
