    Same problem:

    Iphone did not connect to home network.  Wireless connection is just fine at work and in public, and home wireless network can be found and used on home computer with no problem.  Network shows up on Iphone but is always "unable to connect". 


    Solution for my situation: 

    Manually typed in the ip address, subnetmask, router, and client id (bc it wasn't showing up even though the wireless was being found by my iphone), went back and joined the network with my PASSKEY (bc my password failed even after entering in the info...).

    I got the same problem as well. My husband's iphone, our laptop, ipad and smart tv are connected all the time aside from my iphone. I was struggling this problem for almost a month. Had sleepless nights reading forums and suggestions but nothing works. Until it came in my mind to reset my Iphone to factory/orginal settings. It took a while to do the process, but it really works. But make sure that you back up your iphone before doin' it. Hope it also works with you!


    Good luck!!

    Hey there


    I'm having a similar problem. My iPhone 5 connects to my router just fine, but when I try using the connection on any apps or safari, it will just sit there and load for about 2 minutes and then say theres no internet connection. I've tried resetting network settings, changing the security on the router and resetting it but nothing has seemed to work. Any suggestions I am happy to try!

    I got the same problem a couple of months ago. Wi-Fi connection show but I can't upload safari etc. I called our internet provider. She told me just to plug out the POE, wait for few minutes and plug it in again. Hope it works!

    Yes, setting WiFi channel to 11 helped me too. All other suggestions failed to help.

    Hey everybody, My son is having the same problem with his iphone 4S with connecting to our home Wi-Fi. My iphone has no problem. Mine as well as his friends iphones automatically connect here. My son's is the only one that will not. So, what I'm saying is as many iphones as possible have been all connected to my Wi-Fi here and laptop with no issues, except for my son's.


    I spent two days on the phone with Apple and what it all comes down to is there is something wrong with the phone that cannot be fixed. Basically, will need to get a new one.


    Just sharing what happened to me.

    Hey ChaiRommi689


    Thanks for your suggestion. I found out POE means Power Over Ethernet? If so, there are no Ethernet cables connected to my router. The only cables it has are the power cable and the cable that goes into the phone line. Unless I'm missing something?

    I tried everything in all the posts above. What finally worked for me was to go to wifi settings click on the home wifi and then click on "forget network". Then turn off wifi. Then turn off the home modem for 2 mins. Turn on airplane mode and then turn it off.

    [It might be a good idea (although i didn't need to) to turn the phone off while holding down the off button and home button at the same time, then turn the phone back on.]

    Then turn on modem and reconnect phone to wifi.


    If this doesn't work for you don't throw the phone away. Just keep trying all the suggestions in the posts above until something works. It's a matter of convincing the phone that the old settings are definitely gone and tricking it into believing you are connecting to a new network. Good luck.

    Hey, thanks for the info, but my son's phone doesn't recognize any wifi network.

  • chocchipcookie Level 1 Level 1

    I would try rebooting his phone near a network that you can turn off and on again.


    My phone was fine while I went away.  Then I came home and it wouldnt automatically recognise my home wifi.  Never done it before.


    Try everything.

    This may sound stupid but I was having same issue with connecting to my wireless.  When I went into the connection under dhcp the http proxy was set to off.  Changed it to auto and it connected.  Same with other iphone 4 we have....just saying

  • chocchipcookie Level 1 Level 1

    Just want to share on how did I solve my problem.


    I have an iphone 4s and had never had any problem on connecting to wifi before. But when I moved to a new apartment, my iphone just cannot constantly stay connected with this perticular apartment wifi. I thought it was my iphone problem since other device can connect well in the apartment, but later I found out my iphone can connect very stably in a friend's apartment and at work place. 


    I did "forget the network", "reset network on iphone", "reset router", etc, but this problem still show up. I can connect, but will lost the connection in 2 min, then I will have to forget the network, re-enter password, and then lost connection in 2 min again.


    There was once that I resetted my router and haven't put any password on, I found out that my iphone can stay connected!!! But of course it is not good to keep the wifi without password. Then I realize this might be a security authentication problem. I found out WAP and WAP2 doesn't work for my iphone, but WEP works!!! As long as I use a WEP password authentication on my router, my iphone can connect well!


    I don't know why since my friend's apartment's router also use WAP which didn't cause trouble to my iphone, but it just doesn't work on my apartment router. I guess it related with other router setting which I don't quite know.


    Good luck to everyone trying to solve this problem. Not be able to connect to wifi is quite bad...

    I tried everything and most of the stuff was for like 5 minutes to get it working ex. The ice or the hair dryer , but I actually fixed mine all I did was went outside my house after turning the wifi off and my phone in air plane mode turned the wifi back on and it connected I guess it needs to be decently far away from the router and still connect, then I went the the wifi I was using clicked the blue right arrow went to DNs erased those numbers then typed , then went to home screen , then went back scrolled down and pressed renew lease , went to home screen and clicked safari , then went inside , it disconnected then connected again and it's working perfectly fine now

    This is probably too late to help you but it may help someone else. I suddenly started having a similar problem with my iphone. To make a long story short, using the Netgear Genie, I set up the "Guest" access on my modem with a password protection. It logged me right in with my iphone after entering the password. Hope this helps someone.
