Currently Being ModeratedJul 4, 2010 4:53 PM (in response to jacjb)im having the same issue with the iphone 4. We have a playstation 3, iphone 3g, iphone 3gs and a pc all on the same network and only my iphone 4 has a problem. I've also changed network settings several times. Help!!!iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedJul 4, 2010 7:44 PM (in response to jacjb)Welcome to the club. Wifi is completely busted on this phone. My experience is the same as yours ... 3 minutes to load a web page, 4-1/2 minutes to retrieve mail and the list goes on. Tried resetting network settings, restoring as a new device, tweaking network settings ad nauseum. All other devices including my 3GS and iPad work perfectly. The same web page loads in about 4 seconds and the same mail is retrieved in about 8 seconds. I've finally gotten to the point where I've just turned wifi off completely and use my crappy 3G service because--and I can't believe I'm saying this--it's faster than wifi. And that's just sad.Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 6, 2010 12:00 AM (in response to jacjb)I was fine at first, but now my iPhone 4 says 'incorrect password' when trying to connect to my Airport Extreme. Which means no downloads >20MB and NO FACETIME. That's not a good thing, and compounded with my proximity sensor malfunctions, its starting to get to me. Is there a fix on the way?ProBook 15" Intel dual-system, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 8, 2010 4:08 PM (in response to jacjb)Me too. I cannot connect to my wifi, but I took my phone to the AT&T store and they were able to connect it to a wifi. At home though it won't work. Is there a solution? The face time doesn't even work without wifi...pc, iOS 4, pc
Currently Being ModeratedJul 9, 2010 6:44 AM (in response to jacjb)I started having a similar problem just last night. After I updated O4 I was not longer able to get on my airport extreme network, nor with my iPod touch. However, my iMac recognized it just fine. I reset everything, even hard reset my airport extreme and changed the password and have had no luck getting it to join and just keep getting "incorrect password". Any solutions would be appreciated!iPhone 3Gs, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedJul 9, 2010 7:26 AM (in response to jacjb)Thank goodness for this discussion board. I though I was going crazy. Yesterday BOTH iPhone 3GSs in the household stopped connecting to my Airport Extreme, except when they were within 6 feet of the base station and then they operate at extremely slow speeds. Both have recently been upgraded to iOS4 and seemed to work fine until yesterday. My Mac Mini (which is located on the other side of the apartment) and my MacBook connect just fine.iPhone 3GS, iOS 4

My old 3G will download a page in a second but the iPhone 4 won't connect to the internet at all over wi-fi. I'm having to use 3G, which thankfully is good where I am, but it is going to hit on my data limits.Mac Pro 2.6 quad, Mac OS X (10.5.2), ATi 8800GS, 7Gb Ram 2Tb Hdd

Currently Being ModeratedJul 29, 2010 5:40 PM (in response to jacjb)I have this same problem in my new iPhone 4. I found a solution that works but it's not a fix. I simply connected my iPhone to my airport extremes guest network. My speeds jump up to 5mbs but if I switch back to my main the speed dramatically drops again. Again, not a fix but at least a solution.iPhone, iOS 4, iPhone 4
Currently Being ModeratedSep 6, 2010 2:08 PM (in response to jacjb)It seems strange to me that Apple won't acknowledge a problem with wifi when many users are complaining about it on the iphone 4. My wifi connection works after I reboot the my router, but after a while disappears and I can't reconnect without rebooting the router again. I have reset the network settings, but that doesn't work. I have no problem connecting wifi with my ipod 4.0.1 so how couldn't it be my iphone 4 that has the problem. It doesn't look like 4.0.2 is going to fix this problem. Come on Apple, this is a big problem for users, especially since Facetime

Currently Being ModeratedSep 7, 2010 4:15 AM (in response to jacjb)If many of you are having the same problem please let Apple know in one of two ways.
The simple way is at:
Select Feedback Type: Bug Report
Fill out the form. Just takes a minute
If you are a developer, registered to be a developer, or at least understand the lingo, you can report the bug at
Fill out the form. It is more complex, but a few have had an email contact asking for more information but a Core Duo chip is required to run the report to send to them.
If it is happening to enough people and we start telling Apple, they may look into it. Or it may be a non issue by the end of this week with the release of 4.1.Power Mac Dual 1.4GHz G4; iMac Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 2GB Ram, SATA RAID external drives; 1GB Ram; FCP6
