Currently Being ModeratedJul 12, 2008 6:23 AM (in response to bbradone)I updated my v1 phone to 2.0 last night. I no longer get anything but Edge using my Airport Extreme at home when WPA/WPA2 is on. As soon as I turn security off, the WiFi symbol appears.
Help us Apple!!Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 12, 2008 9:46 AM (in response to MattCat)I had a similar problem but was able to fix it by performing the following steps:
1)turn off security on your router (just temporarily)
2)force the iPhone to reconnect to the non-secured network
3)verify that you are able to connect to the internet
4)re-enable security on your router
5)reconnect the iPhone
I have no idea why this works, but it did. I'm using a WPA-PSK/TKIP network.
Currently Being ModeratedJul 13, 2008 10:17 AM (in response to Flyingdp)I had the same problem after loading Remote App. I removed the app and the wireless signal came right back. How frustrating. The Remote App looked so useful. Perhaps the developer can fix...imac, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 13, 2008 10:24 AM (in response to Flyingdp)I find that the wifi connection drops randomly without reconnecting. While at home, my device drops the wifi, connects to edge and never reconnects to wifi; even with me standing next to my wireless router. I hope there is a fix otherwise I will downgrade back to 1.1.4.
I also find that my cell signal has degraded significantly since my upgrade to 2.0G5 Dual 2, 23" cinema; PB 15" 1.25, G5 1.8, Mac OS X (10.4.10), MBP 15.4"
Currently Being ModeratedJul 13, 2008 11:53 AM (in response to JacksoninSRB)2.0 killed Wi-Fi for me. I tried removing Remote.app and that did nothing.
Here is what I see on my iPhone:
First I go to Settings -> Wi-Fi
Then I turn on Wi-Fi
Choose a Network... appears and is sometimes blank (with only the Other... options shown) and sometimes has a network or two showing. When a network or two does appear it can be selected and the checkmark (that indicated the network is selected) will appear, but then the checkmark will dissappear shortly afterwards and often quite soon after that the networks will all dissappear.
I have reset the network settings and I guess the next step is to do a restore to see if that helps. I am trying to connect to my Airport Extreme base station, but the same results happen no matter where I try to connect.PowerBook G4+Mini Core Duo + iPhone 8GB, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 13, 2008 1:08 PM (in response to Greg Mote)The exact same thing is happening to me.
I reset network settings, reset all phone settings, restored the phone, got rid of remote app, removed the password from my Airport Express, and then repeated many of these steps.
I still got nuthin'.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 13, 2008 4:01 PM (in response to Flyingdp)Same issue for me, glad it's not me....
Anyway, I'm on my Powerbook and the signal is good but iPhone is stuck on Edge. Occasionally it connects from where I'm at now but since the upgrade to 2.0, my iPhone (not 3G btw) has been pretty awful with regard to wifi.

Try Resetting Network Settings, goto Settings> General> Reset> Reset Network Settings.
This article has general tips for troubleshooting Wi-Fi issues.

Someone nailed the problem for me. In the Wifi settings of the network you're connected to, see if they have a DNS server typed in under the DHCP settings. If there is, delete it and go back. This worked for me and I'm not getting dumped off to to EDGE anymore.1.5 GHz Powerbook G4 12", Mac OS X (10.5.4), 1.25 GB RAM
Currently Being ModeratedJul 13, 2008 4:19 PM (in response to Jason L)Thanks for article. It had some interesting ideas. I do use IMAC filtering, but the phone IMAC address (Unchanged from when it did work) is entered in the router. I also tried "Resetting the Network", but that too was not the answer.
I think I learned a lesson though. Next time I'll wait to update until the bugs are worked out.Dell Inspiron 530, Windows Vista
