My WIFI connection to my I-Phone 4S keeps dropping when I'm at home & I don't understand why??


My partner has access to the same WIFI with the same handset (although different network) & the laptop picks up WIFI too


But for some reason, my I-Phone keeps dropping the signal & I'm using so much data it's a joke....


Any ideas will be appreciated



iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.3

    Hey Bretf75,



    Thanks for the question. I understand the Wi-Fi connection on your iPhone 4S drops unexpectedly. That definitely sounds frustrating. The following article provides some troubleshooting steps that may help to resolve your issue:


    iOS: Troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks and connections


    Wi-Fi disconnects, or signal strength is less than expected


    - Move closer to the Wi-Fi router (access point).

    - Check for sources of potential interference.

    - Remove any case, stand, or other accessories from your iOS device and see if signal strength improves.

    - Reset network settings by tapping Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.


    Note: This will reset all network settings including: previously connected Wi-Fi networks and passwords, recently used Bluetooth accessories, VPN and APN settings.
