    well. my ifone has everything to do with this because it seems like its youtube causing all the trouble. if i search for videos it either says cannot connect to youtube or if it does sometimes it will disconnect me from wifi and put me on EDGE wich doesnt work either. and when i try to reconnect my wifi it says unable to connect to lynksis(my network)..

    im sorry...but i can't not think of anyway this has to do with ur fone....sometimes wifi connectuions go in and out...and youtube does slow the general internet in ur house down...ur fone is not casuing ur wifi problems....its just not logical....somebody try to prove me wrong....cuz i just don't see how that would work

    Well, if it was a YouTube issue, wouldn't you think that you would have the same problem at your cousins house??? Just sounds like an intermittent wifi issue.

    Try www.vtap.com

    If you get the same thing, its your WiFi.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

    My wife's iPhone (never-modded 1.1.1) is having the same issue. When it's connected to our wireless network (as well as the neighbor's one), it seems to not be loading pages via WiFi. It seems to be loading via Edge, and very slowly at that. My iPhone (1.1.1, jailbroken) works great with the WiFi, not sure what the problem is.

    The router is a linksys WRT54G with WPA2. It still does the same with unsecured wireless connections though.

    AH, my wife had the same problem (poor ol' wives) when I brought her 1.1.1 iPhone home for the first time. From Memory, I believe I had to go in & even though the iPhone picked up the SSID, I went ahead and selected Other & then added it manually putting in the correct security & password (which is your wep keys if secured). I bet since you are switching back to Edge there is a problem with your setup somewhere.
