Currently Being ModeratedFeb 27, 2011 3:15 PM (in response to IFeelGood)I have a feeling I'm having the same problem. It sometimes seems (at home)that the iphone is attempting to download via Edge (not 3g in hinterlands) and times out rather than use a strong local wi-fi.blackbook, Mac OS X (10.5.6), 3gb ram
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 28, 2011 11:29 AM (in response to catman2u)Our problem is, the iPhone / iPad shows the wireless icon, telling it is connected to te wireless network, but it isn't. So the iPhone / iPad does not connect to 3G / EDGE, since it believes it is connected to the wireless network. So all acivities, browsing, mail collection etc. time-out.
Switching off and on wireless, or selecting to renew lease fixes the problem, but I don't want to do this 5-10 times a day.iPhone 4, iPad, Lenovo T510, Dell XPC, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 28, 2011 4:42 PM (in response to IFeelGood)I have exact same problem. iPhone 4 connects to the network no problem, but disconnects as soon as the wireless connection is no longer being used. I can jump to settings -> wifi and disable/re-enable wifi and then it comes back to life. This is not an issue with any other devices in my home. Would love to know how to stop this.iPhone 4, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedMar 1, 2011 7:40 AM (in response to IFeelGood)I am going to have to try a few of those tips...my issue is a bit similar.
No settings were changed prior to my issue...
Came home, iPhone4 typically picks up my wifi in my driveway.
Standing right next to it I can't get wifi to stay connected. In settings it shows that it is connected and sees wifi in my neighborhood but I can't get an icon. Youtube icon can't connect and timed out. Reset network, reset cache, even did a FULL RESTORE which was an hour of my life I'll never get back and still zip.
THE ONLY TIME i got the icon for a moment was when I went to settings/network and the page where you choose to "tether" or not I see the icon for a moment and as soon as I try to open a browser or youtube I lose the icon. Driving me nuts and tech help kept putting me in the same circles to no avail.MacBookPro17
Currently Being ModeratedMar 1, 2011 8:36 AM (in response to Towertwelve)I'm having the same problem with my 3Gs phone. if I check the settings it's showing that it's connected to my wifi but is only showing 3G on the phone. My daughter's phone just doesn't stayed connected at all. Sometimes it doesn't even show the wifi name in the settings, yet the computer is connected.Dell Inspiron 9300, Dell Inspiron 10 Mini, Windows XP, 3Gs iPhone, iPod Touch, 120GB Classic iPod
Currently Being ModeratedMar 3, 2011 7:00 AM (in response to Janthea)Still having the same problems. The phone doesn't seem to remember the wifi connection.Dell Inspiron 9300, Dell Inspiron 10 Mini, Windows XP, 3Gs iPhone, iPod Touch, 120GB Classic iPod
Currently Being ModeratedMar 3, 2011 7:01 AM (in response to Janthea)PS I also get the message that the phone is unable to connect to my particular hub, even when the signal is strong.Dell Inspiron 9300, Dell Inspiron 10 Mini, Windows XP, 3Gs iPhone, iPod Touch, 120GB Classic iPod
Currently Being ModeratedMar 23, 2011 2:44 PM (in response to IFeelGood)Same problem here with a 3GS on 4.3. Wifi work fine then stop working, have to restart the iphone to get it work again but then it is only for a while so I have to turn it off etx...etc...3gs, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedMar 23, 2011 4:24 PM (in response to IFeelGood)I was seeing the same thing with my new iPhone (but not my touch). I know this came from another user here but I'm not sure which one. Take a look at your encryption setting.
Mine was set to WPA2 TKIP-AES and I was getting a few "connected, but not responding" problems which were cured by turning the WiFi off then back on.
Last night, I modified my settings in my router so I was using WPA2 AES. So far, the halts have stopped. I'm going to continue to monitor for a few days before I add this to my recommended list.iMAC 20", iMAC 21.5", Mac OS X (10.6.6), iPhone4 iOS 4.2.6, 2G touch iOS 4.2
Currently Being ModeratedMar 24, 2011 2:00 PM (in response to luvlabs)Exactly the same problem for me. Good to read that I am not the only one.
As a test, I have swithched off security on my network and everything was then fine. That's not a great solution though and with regards to the message above I am not sure I can change to something else that WPA2-PSK.
That's a bit of a shame for the iPhone not to be ale to connect seamlessly.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 28, 2011 5:53 PM (in response to IFeelGood)We have two gen1 iPads (64gb and 32gb), and an iPod touch that just recently started having this same problem. When I first turn it on, the first app I go to connects fine (i.e. email), but then when I go to a second or third app, or go back to the first app, I suddenly don't have a connection, even though the icon indicates that I'm connected.
Very frustrating!multiple, Windows 7
Currently Being ModeratedMar 28, 2011 7:04 PM (in response to GoodKarma)My iPhone 3G (3.1.2) does something similar, though the symptoms are not consistent. They include:
• no wifi (usually no wifi icon) even though under Settings -> Wifi the home (or office) network is listed;
• wifi usually for a short period after a restart;
• sometimes all network information under Settings -> Wifi -> home network (IP address and so on) disappears; choosing "Renew Lease" brings back all the information for a few seconds, before it disappears again;
• usually the phone does not switch to the data network, which it normally would when no wifi is available.
This has been going on for a few days. Resetting network settings, turning on and off wifi, or renewing lease does not help. The only thing is a restart, and even that only works for a few minutes. I have not tried a restore. The iPhone is essentially useless for anything requiring an internet connection.
Currently Being ModeratedApr 3, 2011 7:07 PM (in response to IFeelGood)Hi,
I thought I'd join in if only to commisserate! My mum and I both have 3GS phones. Strangely, hers connects to the home wifi just fine and will stay connected. With the exact same settings, mine doesn't. I've used 50mb of my 200mb. She's used 2mb!
I don't understand why my phone won't keep a hold of the wifi connection while hers does. Is this something that requires me to go back to the AT&T store for a fix? Or is it an Apple help issue? I'm new enough with these phones that I'm not even sure where to go or what to do now.
