    Question iPhone wont connect to router with password
    Okay so I have a linksys router and it has never had a password on it. I use it for my iPhone and wireless laptop. I found out that my neighbor's have been stealing my wireless because they put a password on my router. (dumbasses) So I just went to 192.168.1.1 and changed it to something I can use. My laptop has no problem connecting. The iPhone recognizes the network I created and asks me for a password and I enter it and it says "unable to join the network (then my network name)"

    Anyone know why and how I can resolve the problem?

    go back into the router settings and change the type of security you use to allow your iPhone onto it. i use a regular WEP key on my linksys router. hopefully that helps. make sure youre putting the right password in. my password is extremely long and i forget it sometimes. hope i helped.
