    My iPhone 4 would not connect with my home wifi either. What worked for me was using the original password for the router, the password that's on a sticker on the outside of the router itself (I believe it's listed as the "WEP key" and be careful to not confuse a zero for an "O" or vice versa).

     

    Like a lot of people, when I got the new router (same time I got Verizon FIOS) I reset the password for the router to a password of my choice. For along time it worked fine with this same iPhone 4, and interestingly that custom password never stopped working for the other devices in my house (iPad, MacBook, etc).

    Letting the battery drain and die 'fixed' this issue for my friend's AT&T iPhone 4S. Before trying this, we had upgraded to iOS 5.1 and reset the networking settings (neither of which worked). Next on our list was to try the freeze method, lets hope it doesn't come to that.

     

    Score one for the 'drain method'!

    The freezer method works.

     

    My little cousin's iphone 4s brand new had the wifi problem and absolutelly no cause whatsoever. We put it in the freezer after trying everything to reset and wipe the phone and it worked again!

     

    I put it in a sealed plastic bag we sucked with vacuum first. Left it for 15 minutes then works now, will see if it stays good or we'll have to trade it for another unit.

     

    I read on this "beijing iphone repair" website that it's because of bad solders that the wifi stops working. Seriously, such an expensive premium device should not have this type of problem! Now every time I buy something from Apple I should fear something?

     

    My friend had a problem with his speaker earpiece, dam, I never imagined I would see another problem of such proportions up close. And there is no cause for these things, they just seem to happen. O.O

     

    Cheers,

    André

    Thanks MuggleMama. This totally solved this issue for my 3Gs.  Guess I have to turn it on and off when I want Bluetooth in my car.  Needed that wireless though.

    I was having issue of connecting to home wifi. Was able to connect, then would drop off and would not be able to reconnect regardless of the numerous other methods I tried. Apple support was of no assistance, nor was Verizon. I read in another post to do the following and oddly enough, it has worked like a charm.

      - airplane mode on

      - power off phone

      - power on phone

      - airplane mode off

      - wifi on

    Reestablish your wifi connection.

     

    I have an iPhone 4s 32g with Verizon service that I only purchased a month ago. All updates for iOS have been made.

    I hope this helps anyone else who has been having the same issue that I had.

    Rudnxtx - Thanks for your post. The airplane on, power off (full power down), power on, airplane off, wifi on worked the first time. Been without wifi for a week and it was killing me!!! Great fix!

    Great!  I too, thought it had to be another one of the strange fixes that I had read. But, mine has been working great!  So glad it helped. I hope more read our posts before trying putting their phones in the freezers. LOL

     

    Have a great one!!!!

    Here is Rudnxtx suggestion:

    - airplane mode on

      - power off phone

      - power on phone

      - airplane mode off

      - wifi on

    I have just fixewd my iPhone 4s with the same problem that i have had since i upgraded to ISO 5.1.

     

    All i did was turn my bluetooth off and the wifi started working instantly.

     

    Must be a conflict somewhere.

    The Fix by Rudnxtx was awesome. I just tried the steps and voila !!! it instantly resolved my Wii-Fii issue.

    Earlier since the update of iOS5.1.1 done on my new iphone 4S it had been over a month with wiffi not working. I managed to connect to wii fi using the Static Ip configuration on my phone for my router.

     

    Now with the terrific simple trick, I can now remove the static ip config on the wii fi and my home router is automatically deteced.

     

    Kudoos to all the great guys there skimming through different resources on net and bringing out the best solutions to this forum. This helps us all. I suggest people to try this tip certainly once. Well it worked for us, hope it works for you tooo.

     

    Here is Rudnxtx suggestion:

    - airplane mode on

      - power off phone

      - power on phone

      - airplane mode off

      - wifi on

     

     

    Cheers

    I tried it too and it didnt work so I searched through later posts. This ended up working for me. I have an iPhone 4Gs by the way with the updated iOS 5.1.1

     

    Steps:

    Turn on Airplane Mode

    Turn on wifi

    Restart Phone

    Turn off Aiplane Mode
