shaheeriqbal Level 1 Level 1

Hi i bought an Iphone 4S day before yesterday. And i'm having problems with the wifi. wifi freezes after like evey 15- 20 mins. by freeze i mean it stays connected but that nothing works i dont lose singals or anything but internet stops working on the phone then i have turn off the wifi and connect it again to make it work for another 10-20 mins. is anyone else so facing the same problem?

iPhone 4, iOS 5, Iphone 4S

    Exactly the same problem here as well...


    Any idea?

  • cfrommd Level 1 Level 1

    Same problem except it only works for 10 seconds.  Long enough to download emails and then stops working.  Occurs on 2 different WAPs.  Belkin and the one integrated into my FIOS router.


    By the way, it was working fine for several days after I purchased it.  I've only noticed this problem today.

  • shaheeriqbal Level 1 Level 1

    I think i solved the problem its working fine and its been 3 hours already since the wifi is working with out any problems.

    try giving your iphone's mac address a fixed ip from the your router! dont set a static ip on your phone cause then you'll need to change the settings again and again when u connect to a different networks. try doing this! it worked for me.

    So what do you do when you are using public wifi?

  • cfrommd Level 1 Level 1

    I did a "forget" of all my networks and started from scratch.  So far things have been stable.  Two networks that I used for test purposes at work had the same password.  Not sure if that caused an issue or conflict.  I can't imagine why it would as the SSIDs were different.


    Anyway, I haven't noticed any problems since yesterday.

  • FruitNinja Level 1 Level 1

    Same here. I have to do a forget and connect again, but it does happen on my 4 before, just not so frequently. I believe it's an issue with iOS 5, not the 4s phone.

  • Dr. Euphoria Level 1 Level 1

    Have the same issue.  Using Apple's Time Capsule, the wifi is better when I'm sitting right next to it, but if I am one room away the connection chokes.  Using the Speed Test app, I see that the connection is good for a few seconds then it slows to a crawl, it won't even begin uploading in the upload portion of the test.  Apple, please fix this!

  • shaheeriqbal Level 1 Level 1

    As i said earlier assign your phone a fixed ip and it should be working fine.. Its working perfectly fine for me now.

  • yih Level 1 Level 1

    how you do assign your phone a fixed ip? apologies if this seems a trivial question.


    i have the same problem - wifi worked well for first 2-3 days, then used a public network (funnily enough at an Apple Store) then when I got home everything stopped working.


    Now I am only able to intermittently join my home wifi network and even then it's so slow!


    Have tried forgetting network, resetting network settings, clearing all settings - none of which solves the problem.


    Is this an ios5 problem, or something worse like a hardware/antenna fault with the iphone 4S?

  • Neil Inglis Level 1 Level 1

    I have exactly the same problem.  Sadly, assigning a fixed IP address on my Airport Extreme did not fix the problem.

  • mritacca Level 1 Level 1

    If you Google iPhone 4S WIFI problems, it seems to be widespread!  Contact Apple and advise them about it.  It seems to be a serious issue and thought my phone was defective.  Hopefully it's an iOS 5 issue otherwise Apple will have a major hardware headache on there hands.

  • mritacca Level 1 Level 1

    iPhone 4S = bad WIFI

  • succeed Level 1 Level 1

    try changing your operating channel of your router, sounds like you could have interference

  • mritacca Level 1 Level 1

    I am not alone with this problem.  I don't have this issue with my iPhone 4 at the same location.  Why is the iPhone 4S having interference issues now?



    This seems to be widespread and I am not alone.  Google it. Check your forums. It works and then stops altogether.  You have to reset network settings or turn phone off/on to work again and then same issue occurs.


    It's either a) a bug b) defective hardware.


    Let us know which one it is Apple! 


    I shouldn't have to change my channel on the router daily to get my iPhone to work. Never have in the past and never should in the future.
