    Default WiFi not staying connected
    I have a 2G Iphone jailbroken/unlocked with quickpwn running 2.2. Everything working great until a couple of days ago wifi started acting up. The phone sees wireless networks, seems to join for a few seconds but cannot stay connected. Just drops the wifi after about 15seconds even though it is still showing a good signal.

    I turned security off on one of the routers and it does not matter.

    I restored 2.2 and re jailbroke and unlocked (cydia/installer/unlock) using quickpwn on PC. Exact same problem.

    Any suggestions?? I did see a post to maybe restore to 1.1.4 then back to 2.2 and rerun quickpwn.

    Thanks for the help.

    Try these one by one
    *Forget the network/turn wifi off,turn it back on/Select the network again
    *On router,use Wpa or Wpa2 instead of Web
    *On router use 64bit instead of 128bit security
    *Reset&reboot your router
    *Reboot your phone
    *Renew lease on your phone

    I seem to got it figured out:

    We have 3 iphones in the house. For some reason if my iphone connects to the wireless network before my husbands, his will not connect. However, if I disconnect mine and then connect his he stays on just fine. I can then reconnect. Crazy but it works.

    Cheers,
    Jill

    We have 3 iphone in our house, sometimes 4 when my oldest comes home from college. What I noticed is that whenmy son comes home it messes up my connection. What I do is go into my router and see that the IP of my iphone is not resolving. What I did was rename my iphone on the network to a unique name. How the router I have does it, is to assign any new device a name "new-host", "new-host-1", etc ... I renamed the iphones to unique names, and so far so good.
