Hi folks,


My iPhone 4 (and my wife's) will not connect to the Extreme Airport station in her office. The building is full of wi-fi networks. I used Wi-Fi Explorer to move the 2.4 Ghz channel to a less crowded area. Everybody are on channel 11. I can see my wife's network on the iPhone, but when I choose it, the wheel spins continually. It has a self assigned IP addresse.


As for the Mac. It will work fine on the 5Ghz band. But the ethernet cable must be unpluged. Is this normal. But no succes at all on the 2.4Ghz band. On my mac at home (Airport Extreme) I can use either the Wi-Fi or the Ethernet network, no need to unplug the ethernet cable.


Any help


Thank you.

iPhone 4, iOS 6
