I want to connect my Iphone to my wireless

Hi there,

First of all you will have to configure your router to accept the iPhone. To do this you will need to go in to the router in your browser window and add your new device, it will ask you for your MAC number which can be found under the back cover of your iPhone or in your WIFI settings.

Then you will need to configure your router to either automatically assign an IP Address or use an allocated IP Address and use the same setting on your iPhone. Also, you will need to configure your router to either assign a DNS Server automatically or to use an allocated DNS Server and once again you will need to use the same settings on your iPhone.

Your IP Address is crucial in oreder for your iPhone to connect to your wireless network. Your DNS Server is crucial in order for your iPhone to access the internet through your wireless network.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a great New Year and please remember to rate this solution.

Warm regards,

I've included a link on Amazon to a very simple, easy to set-up extender that you can set-up with the push of a button. Once you set-up/configured the extender near your existing router following the simple instructions, you can then move it to the front of your office. Best of luck!

Poor signal range - I have just moved to a new

The general rule for WiFi is to have the router placed at a reasonable height above the items that wish to use it. This is because the radio waves travel downwards It was probably a repeater that was recommended to boost the signal.
