    THANK YOU!  I tried everything and was about to go down to the Apple Store. Turns out that the little cute case that I got from Target last week was the issue. You saved me from my onging frustration.

    I have an Iphone 5 it used to work fine, but then out of nowhere I started having troubles with my wifi conection, and now I cant connect to any wifi, or it just connects when it's really close to it.

    I bought my iphone in United States but I live in Ecuador and I take it to apple in my country and they told me that they don't manage guaranty of iphones in my country yet, so that I had to take my cellphone to the States, the problem is that I have guaranty only untill june 7th, so I did send my phone with some uncle, he toke my iphone to apple in New York and It seemed to work just fine the Iphone magicaly coneccted to their wifi signal, so they just made a hard reset of the phone and send it back to me, I wait about 4 weeks without my cellphone but today I finally got it back, and guess what .... my iphone still doesn't connect to any wifi signal... I used to be an apple fan, but today I'm so mad because of this, that if you have a chance to buy another phone somewhere else in other brand , you better do it, because apple is not what it used to be anymore...

    Estimado gatodres1010,

    Estos telefonos iphone 5 han salido un poco raros o defectuosos.  A mi me paso lo mismo la noche que lo recibi de apple.  Ingrese a y empeze a leer que varios usuarios estaban teniendo el mismo problema, y la solucion que yo use fue justamente el "hard reset".  A mi me funciono, pero no le funciona a todo el mundo.  Yo he recopilado una serie de soluciones que otros usuarios del iphone 5 han utilizado.  Permiteme adjuntarlo aquin abajo.  Te deseo mucha suerte y espero que alguna solucion funcione.


    Dear mvish86,

    If your iphone 5 is not getting decent wi-fi at home I would advise you to first perform a "hard reset", i.e. hold down the on/off button (upper right hand corner) AND the Home Button (fingerprint scanner) at the same time until the phone restarts.  Let it restart completely, and check for wi-fi connectivity.  Second, make sure your router is isolated (about three to five feet AWAY from anything electrical (we are testing, if it works you can then place it a little closer to other devices.)  If need be you can try performing another hard  reset, remember your iphone 5 works somewhere else, hence it has got to be your location at home.

    You can even try to isolate the devices to a room where there are NO electrical equipment and then test your iphone.  Let's remember wi-fi is completely dependant on distance, wall materials, in other words if you live in a house that has any masonry exterior, or sheet metal on inside the roof, or anything of that sort, that is what would be killing the signal coming from outside the house to your router and then weakly broadcasting to your phone.

    I do hope these tips will give you a somewhat workable technique to allow you to enjoy your iphone 5 the way you expect it to.  In my case the same afternoon that I received my iphone 5, I activated it and started noticing very poor wi-fi connectivity (I have got a killer Motorola Surfboard AC modem/router, an Intellinet N access point they do sit close by though), and poor wi-fi nonetheless.  I got online, went to apple's website, read some forums, and found that this poor wi-fi connectivity on iphone 5's is common to many users.  People were doing all kind of things with ip addresses, changing routers, etc, etc.  Until I found a comment explaining what worked for him.  Guess what?  Perform a "hard reset" and viola!  It worked for me as soon as I did the "hard reset" the very first time.  I do hope it works for you too.

    Your iphone 5s gold enthusiast,

    Don't worry. All you need to do is this


    Go to settings

    Click on wifi

    Click on your internet connection that you are connected to but is not working (eg internet657)

    More options will come up so all u do is that you scroll down until you see DSN

    Change DSN to

    If this doesn't work then change it to

      hope it helps

    Had the same wifi issues, wifi dropped off every few minutes. Got so annoyed i fully disassembled my iPhone 5 and put back together and wifi connects and has not dropped off since! Must of been a loose connection. also fixed my time issues as well!

  • healthyoptions Level 1 (0 points)

    can you explain this a little bit more. I would like to try it before I install the new router/modem frontier sent me.

    it is a netgear as well and I don't think any different. I don't understand the adding the digit with the 7 to 07 etc.

    thanks so much

    I've had this issue on my iPhone 5 since I got my Bluetooth working that wouldn't connect in the past. Now about my Bluetooth works, my Wi-Fi still gives incorrect password no matter what I do. Changing the router names, settings, passwords, I've tried everything, and it says incorrect password instantly. What else can I try?. I can't be the only one with this issue
