OBESEMCNASTY Level 1 Level 1

I have a Netgear WNDR3700v2 with DD-WRT v24-sp2 (06/14/11) std installed and I can connect to the 5Ghz side with no security enabled.  Once I have WPA2 enabled both TKIP and AES or either or, I cannot connect.  I can connect to my Time Capsule's 5Ghz network with WPA2 enabled just fine.  Wondering if others are having the same problem?  My phone is on Verizon, 32GB iPhone 5.

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1

    So I can confirm that my iPhone 5 works on the Netgear WNDR3700v2 with DD-WRT but if I try to use the WPA2 Personal security it won't connect.  I can connect to the Time Capsule so I'm going to assume my Netgear might be funky.  I hope to hear from anyone else who may have fixed this.

    I just purchased an iPhone 5 and had a similar issue with my WNDR3700v2 router. I did try many of the suggestions listed in Apple and NetGear support and finally got everything to work.


    My resolution path included:

    - Upgraded Firmware from to (yes, it gives you warnings - but my upgrade went smoothly and the interface is much, much nicer)

    - Changed SSIDs for the 2 and 5 GHz sides (make them different so your devices have to rediscover and authenticate to "new" networks)

    - Set the 5GHz encryption to WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES]


    This process let me connect my 5 and reconnect my other devices without having to lower my security settings.
