It should connect to your WiFi anytime its present. If not, just go to Settings and change to the WiFi network.

I have great signal under wifi settings but while on the net or checking mail the only icon I ever see up top is the E.

Had that problem too. Set router encryption to WPA.

JedixJarf is right. As soon as I set my router encryption to WPA instead of WEP, my iPhone was able to see the network just fine.

ok I set my router to EPA but still only connecting to edge. Under wifi settings I even have a check mark and everything.

okay if you are going to use wpa then you need to use wpa2-psk [aes]. And that should get you up and running.

I just got an iphone today and was trying to get it to work on my home wifi network. My network uses MAC filtering and also WPA-PSK encryption. After some serious effort, I figured out that it must be the WPA-PSK setting that is causing the problem because if I turn it off completely and still leave the MAC filtering on, my iphone connects to my network. However, if I try WPA-PSK encryption my iphone asks for my password but still wont connect. I've made sure my automatic capital option is off. I've modified the wifi setting on iphone to try it as wpa and also wpa2. I assumed that wpa2 is the same as wpa-psk. Either way since I tried both one of them should have worked. I also called apple support but they couldn't figure it out. Anyone want to take a crack at this. Note that my wireless router is a D-Link model #DI-624.
