I have a couple suggestions.
1. Turn WiFi Security off on the router, Then allow Router to reboot.
2. Reboot iPhone, Press and hold down the home button & sleep/wake button. Let go once you see a Silver Apple logo. And allow iPhone OS to reboot.
3. Go to Settings - WiFi - Tap on Network - Network should not have a padlock so should connect quickly. Do you get an IP address now?
4. If you get no IP address, Disconnect power to router for 5 min, Then reconnect allow it to power up then try iPhone again.
5. If needed please contact Linksys, And have them assist you with updating you're routers firmware software to the latest version. Once this is done try iPhone again and see if it will connect with an IP address
If it does Success If not please post back.
Hi Andrew T,
Thanks for your suggestions, I really appreciate it. I tried the things you suggested with no luck so I spent a lot of the weekend trying to sort it out and got there in the end, here's what the problem was just incase somebody else is having the problem......
My router is set to DHCP, and therefore gives out an IP address to any of my gadgets that ask for it. I have about 6 items in my house that were askign for IP addresses and I think this was causing the problems.
It seems that whenever you "wake up" the iPhone with wi-fi enabled it will ask for an IP address from the router again and after a bit of intense use (i.e doing this several times, whilst on my PC, with my PS3 running and my wife playing on the Wii) it seemed to make the iPhone "fall over" and not get a new IP address any more.
The solution to this problem was to give each of the items that use my home wi-fi network a fixed IP address. This is very easy to do, and you can still leave DHCP enabled.
Once I did this my iPhone works perfectly with my home network!!
I got the same problem.
My iphone does connect to a linksys WRT54G router, but does not find the server. I cannot receive my emails and cannot open any internet page.
I have disable all security settings, my firmware is upgraded, I have correctly rebooted the router and I can't still get this problem solved!
I think it has something related with the quantity of devices connected to the network because when I brought another laptop and an ipod touch, my iphone stopped working! I did configured my wireless devices with an static ip, but my iphone can't still get connected.
Does anyone has a different solution for this?
I have the same problem. It didn't start happening until the 2.0 upgrade for the Iphone, which I installed.
I get an IP address, everything looks good, I can even connect to the WRT54GS using it's IP address with Safari. But getting past the WRT54GS is now impossible.
I've tried just about everything and no luck.
I have been having issues trying to network my new iPhone, one week old. I picked up a new router today (Linksys WRT160N)and have had a painstaking time configuring it to work with the iPhone's wi-fi. The only way I have gotten a DCHP connection to work was when the security of my router was off, and in this method I was able to grab all the information from the DCHP fields. I then entered that info into the static fields (which I am now using) and I turned the router security to use WPA2 Personal. I entered my passphrase, all uppercase, and connected. However, no matter what I do I cannot connect using DCHP and security turned on, this is of little consequence to me though.
My main concern is that I have no internet, mail or data coming in or out. My phone says that I am connected to my network, but I can't do anything with it, it is useless. The only way I can check email is after the phone gives up and switches to 3G. I have restarted both the router and restarted the OS on the iPhone (both buttons) and there is no change. Access restrictions are turned off, in case anyone was wondering.
I have a NETGEAR WNR834B router at home but my iPhone can't connect to the network. Wi-Fi is turned on and I can see the NETGEAR network on my iPhone but when I enter the password, this message pops up: "Unable to join the network" Also, when I click the blue arrow to see the details, everything is just blank and I don't even have the option "Forget this network" that everyone seems to be talking about. I have re-checked my password a dozen times, turned the iPhone and the router on/off, and even reset the network settings on the iPhone. Any other tips on how I can fix this?
