    Hi Titans,

     

    Try resetting the iPhone 3gs - hold down the Home and Power buttons and conintue to hold them down until the Silver Apple appears.

     

    Once back up, see if it connects. If not, try toggling the Wifi off and on several times, or the Airplane mode off and on several times.

     

    The only other thing I would ask you about is if your provider limits the number of devices they will allow you to connect to the wireless....

     

    Cheers,

    thanks for your response. I've tried all of your suggestions and still not connecting. I should have mentioned that I have previosuly had my Iphone4, Iphone3gs and laptop connected to my wifi at the same time.

     

    Cheers

    OK, a couple of other "tests" you can try....

     

    Turn off the Wifi on your other phone and your Mac, and then try to connect the 3gs again

     

    Reset your router

     

    Worth a shot! If those don't work, do you have an Apple store nearby where you can take the phone to have it checked? Because if it still doesn't connect when it's the only one trying to connect, then it seems like it would point to a problem with the phone itself....

     

    Cheers,
