I finally solved my issue by turning off cellular while at home using wifi. I called tech support at Netgear because I couldn't stay connected. I tried everything all of you have posted; forgeting the network, renewing the lease, changing security, etc. What they told me at Netgear is that when I have cellular turned on it's competing with the wifi. I have Verizon wireless, an iphone 5 and ipad 2 and couldn't stay connected. My husband has ATT, an iphone 4s and ipad3, leaves his cellular on and never has an issue. It looks like the LTE4 is competing with our 5G wireless router. It's a nag to turn it on when leaving and off when home again, but at least now I know what the issue is and how to fix it. Hope this helps.
I am going insane with this problem , i have a similar issue were my iphone 5s disconnect with the wifi every 30 seconds and i have to go back to settings and press on it to connect again
I tried the following :
1) turning the airplane mode on and off
2) renew lease
3) change http to auto
4) "forget this network" and re adding it
5) turning off the cellular data off
6) reset network setting
7) "ask to join networks" on and off
8) turned off the iphone for 10 seconds
Nothing worked i still have to manually go press on it again to connect every minute
I posted in this thread back in May and "thought" my related iPhone WiFi issues were a thing of the past after using poster Ellywyte's renew lease procedure. Of all the suggestions listed in this very long thread this one lasted the longest. Unfortunately, the problem returned after 48 hours.
I had resigned myself to the fact that I was going to have to live with this problem. Coincidentally, I was having difficulty with a system of five IP Camera's that are on my home network maintaining connection as well. Each camera has a static IP address and I have no idea why but I decided to change the port fowarding assignments for these cam's from the low to mid 1020's to ports in the 8000. I know that this sounds strange but after doing this my iPhone, my wife's iPod Touch, and her eReader have never lost the WiFi connection since (and it's been months).
I'm wondering if others with this problem have other devices on their wireless networks that may be causing their problem.
My iPhone 5c, which has been working perfectly with wi-fi for months is suddenly having problems. I can use wi-fi for a few minutes but it is slow and then loses connection quickly. I smashed my screen a few days ago and had it repaired by an electronics shop. Since then it has not been working, I am wondering if this has anything to do with my problems.
I spent multiple tries on this topic and finally found the solution to fixing this problem. (Weather the phone is plugged in or not)
If your iPhone 5 (S, C or regular) is dropping your connection to your infrastructure network (Home or Business) whatever the case may be; follow these steps
For Home Users.
1. Unlock iPhone and go to settings. Choose WiFi and Connect to the desired network and tap the icon
2. Observe all the Numbers and Values for: (See Image "Before" for example)
You can Omit the Client ID (Not required)
3. Choose Static from the 3 Bars at the top (|DHCP|BootP|Static)
Enter in the same values but change the last 3 digits of the IP address from it's original (Eg XXX.XXX.XXX.100 change it to XXX.XXX.XXX.75)
4. Go back to the list of networks. Are you connected? (Checkmark)
For Workplace users you may need information from your network administrator unless you are savy.
1. Unlock iPhone and go to settings. Choose WiFi and Connect to the desired network.
2. Download fingbox and run a network scan.
Start from the top IP addresses (Eg: XXX.XXX.XXX.1 and see if there are any devices between XXX.XXX.XXX.1 - XXX.XXX.XXX.20) If there are no devices using any addresses between 1 and 20 choose any number.
If there are see your network administrator and request if he/she would enter this in on the device. (NOT IN THEIR SERVERS)
3. Tap the icon
4. Observe all the Numbers and Values for: (See Image before for example)
You can Omit the Client ID (Not required)
5.Choose Static from the 3 Bars at the top (|DHCP|BootP|Static)
Enter in the same values but change the last 3 digits of the IP address from it's original (Eg XXX.XXX.XXX.155 change it to XXX.XXX.XXX.15)
6. Go back to the list of networks. Are you connected?
I will have to look into the Bluetooth functionality using an iPhone shortly. However for the other part in regards to WiFi if you don't mind (Since It can become confusing I'll make it easier) I will have you go to the WiFi network you want to stay connected to (Like your home wireless) and send me a snip of the numbers in there.
Unlock the phone and go to the Home Screen, tap settings,go to WiFi and tap the like icon beside the current wireless network. Take a snip of the numbers in there and send me the image via e-mail. (To take a snip: Hold the top sleep/power button and tap the home screen button together within 3 seconds)
E-mail me the image I will override the numbers for you to replace with. (Also with how to do that)
let me know how many devices are on the same Router or Network and weather it's a Home or Workplace network.
Do note: If your home consists of wireless access points in multiple locations, your phone may have a more difficult time remaining connected if you are moving from location to location. If you have one router working for everyone then not to worry.
