    Default Pwned iPhone but no Wifi
    I am very new to the whole modification of the iPhone so please be easy on me.

    I recently Pwned my phone and it seemed as if everything was working fine. But today I noticed that My WiFi is giving me issues. I am showing the wifi bars on the top of iphone but i keep getting this message:

    "Safari can't open the page because it can't find the server"

    I know the wireless is working because I am on my laptop typing this question.

    Any suggestions on my iphone settings that I may need to check?? I tried looking through the forums but could not find anything that helped me with this problem.

    Thanks in advance.

    UPDATE

    Well I have tried restoring to factory settings a couple of times and have tried restoring using the pwnage software. I am still not having any luck regarding the wifi. Neither in the factory settings or the custom pwned settings.

    Please can someone help me with this issue? Any suggestions at all?

    When you go to Settings, WI-FI does it show a check mark beside your wifi connection? If so, when you click the little > arrow beside you connecton, does it show your IP address, subnet mask, router and DNS numbers?

    Also, if you haven't tried it. Go to Settings, General, Reset and reset all Net Work connections.

    WOW, I too am having the same problem, NO WiFi, with my iPod Touch 32GB or my iPhone 16GB.....My home rounter, N1 Vision, packed it in on the weekend and Belkin is sending me out a free replacment. I am on my older Linksys G rounter and our home Wii works and my network printer works, but no iPod/iPhone.
    I have a call into Apple support and they are looking into it but I was wonder if on the web somewhere I could others with same problem. I will post any news I get. This is strange. The iPhone works great on a phone network, problem is at my home, I get terrible reception and require a WiFi. Any news can send me personal emails as well.....Thanks

    several days later.............FIXED...........new Router sent to me from BELKIN(free). When new replacement arrived reset up my personal network settings and both have worked together since,no problem.... reinstalled latest firmware updates, changed default settings, and as of Aug 11/08 about a week ago, I am on my second iphone, and with the latest 2.01 update, they both seem to be working OK via WiFi.

    I had wifi problems when I first Pwnd my iPhone - After setting a static IP at home and setting up the required settings on the router/firewall all has been fine - I seem to get a more reliable service when I turn off the 'ask to connect' option in the iPhones network settings.

    also no wifi after pwned 2.0.1
    It is not greyed out, but keeps searching forever without results.
    restored, downgraded, tried again etc.
    until now, it could not find a solution...

    a fix is highly appreciated!

    Has anyone found a fix for the wifi yet? Does anyone know if the Dev Team is even aware, or working on the problem? or is it such a small percentage of people (like myself) that is effected by this wifi (lack of) problem?

    Well the Wifi Fix is for greyed out wifi problem, I'm sure the people here are all talking about wifi not locating any network.
    I have the same problem, but I had used ziphone - it was working fine for month, then suddenly just stopped working. I'm hoping that it's not hardware problem...

    as always, so many comments on the same problem and no solution. I'm about to give up on this f** buggy iphone. It's not worth the trouble of having to spend months searching for a solution!
