Cannot get 2wire to work on my iphone! :(

IPhone and AT&T 2wire internet connection 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, Utube, etc, it says 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!!! FYI - I have no problem with my My laptop connecting to the 2wire, wireless connection. ~Signal strength is "Excellent"!!!
It was suggested that I download the IPhone applications, (which I did) but I could only get so far... I get an "ACTIVATION ALERT" that says, "No signal detected. Signal is required to complete activation." (I have NO cell signal where I live) I finally drove to where I have signal, and "completed the activation", however, when I got back home, rebooted the 2wire router, AND my IPhone, (including putting in my 2wire password, etc.) I am having the same issue. (Showing FULL signal, but NO INTERNET connection on my IPhone).
ANY IDEAS!??????

    This is probably not the answer you need...but for other noobs like me...just got an iPhone and could access WiFi everywhere except at my home, until just now. I have a desktop computer downstairs with 2wire modem and laptop upstairs with 2wire wireless network card. At home on my iPhone I've repeatedly tried to select the 2wire260 (WiFi tab) displayed in network settings but all passwords I enter (sbcglobal.net, homeportal, 2wire.com) result in "Unable to connect" error. Finally I just entered my numeric WEP key from the underside of my modem as the password and it connected. Sounds like you may have a different problem though.

Try this one:

>on ur WIFI networks, click "other..."
>then manually type in ur network name (if its set to default, it should be 2WIRE and the last 3 digits of ur SN. It is case sensitive so type the name exactly how it looks like.)
>make sure that the setting is set to WEP
>on the password box, enter a dollar sign/$ first and then the 10 digit code under ur 2wire

keep me posted on this one

For my 2Wire modem 1000SW the WEP code is below the S/N tag and is a 10 digit numeric code.
In iPhone Setup - Choose a Network . . . tap on WIRE339 (or whatever modem you see) and you will be asked for a Password.
-Type in the 10 digit WEP number
-tap on Join

You shoud see the Router and DNS number that you can see also in the "cmd" window on the PC the router is connected to by typing "ipconfig".

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.

How we connect internet to iphone


The iPhone can connect to the internet through both Wi-Fi and EDGE. Wi-Fi would be the wireless network at your home or business. When the iPhone connects to the internet through EDGE, it is actually connecting through the AT&T phone connection (or any other service provider the iPhone works with in the future).
safari.jpgTo the connect to the internet, you simply need to open up Safari (which is the internet browser used by the iPhone). If you're used to using a pc, think of Safari as the 'Internet Explorer' that the iPhone uses. You can use Safari the same way you could use Internet Explorer.
Once you open up Safari, the iPhone will attempt to connect to the internet. If there are wireless networks available wherever you happen to be, the iPhone will prompt you to choose one to connect to. If you're trying to connect to a network that has security, you will be prompted to enter the password for the network.
If you want to check to see whether there is a wireless network available where you live, work, or play, go to 'Settings' and then 'Wi-Fi'. The iPhone will show you all of the wireless networks that are available.
If there aren't any wireless networks to connect to, iPhone will connect to the internet over EDGE. Connection speeds over EDGE will likely be somewhat slower than they would be over a Wi-Fi network. You will also not be able to answer phone calls while connected to the internet through EDGE. If the iPhone is connected to the internet over EDGE you will see this small icon at the top of your screen: edge-icon.jpg

Cannot connect IPhone to 2wire :( HELP!


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.
