My iPhone keeps dropping the wifi signal at home after a couple hours of idle time. It will then switch to 3G and will be unable to reconnect to my home wifi. The iPhone can see the network, but each time I try to manually connect to it through the network screen, it prompts me for a password. It rejects every password including the correct one. The only solution I've found is to reset the phone, upon turning on it automatically connects to the network without any problems (the way it should work). A few hours later, I go through the same process.

I have tried 3 different routers with the same results (linksys, netgear, and belkin). I suspect the iphone has problems with a wireless N router, however I've set the router to broadcast on available bands (802.11 b/g/n).

Can anyone help me? Anyone have a solution to this problem?

I also have a macbook pro (OS X 10.5.8) that has no problems whatsoever connecting to my home network. It also never loses the connection.

Setup:

iPhone 3Gs
iPhone OS 3.1 (latest version)
Belkin Wireless N Router (operating on all available bands)

Macbook Pro / iPhone 3Gs
