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.

Unable to connect my blackberry to wifi. it says unable to authenticate network.


Try a hard reset: With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot 5 minutes.

Also check the wifi encryption is compatible with your phone?
Maybe an option to goto a cafe with a wifi hotspot and try logging in there ... does that work?
cheers.

I have a samsung galaxy gt-i9000 but my wifi nolonger works when i turn it on it says unable to scan twice then turns itself off.


Hello there,
You will need to be sure that there is wifi turned on in the area that you are trying to use your phone.
Then you try to go through the wifi list on the phone and delete all the wifi that it has ever seen and worked with. Then you turn off the phone for about 5 minutes, then you turn it on and turn on the wifi on the phone and search for the wifi available, that way it will search for the available wifi and connect to it.
Thank you for using fixya Caseytech

I bought a Nokia E71 Saturday and everything works, including the WIFI, except I am unable to connect to internet going down the hiway or anywhere away from a WIFI connection.


If you don't have a WIFI connection then you don't have internet. The only way to have internet without wifi is with a data plan from you provider.

2. Check the Encryption type is TKIP.

3. Uncheck static IP in advanced settings.

4.Protocol must be set to HTTP in WIFI settings.

Wi-fi connection problem


There are 2 ways to approach your problem.
  1. Un-protect your wifi connection by removing the password. This is risky since other wifi gadgets can readily connect to your network.
  2. Configure your Samsung phone to connect to your password-protected wifi. Make sure that the wifi protocol of your phone matches that of your wifi router. Example, make sure to set WPA or WPA2 on both device.
