Thread: wifi connected, safari says won't open cause it can't find the server?

  1. #1
    Default wifi connected, safari says won't open cause it can't find the server?
    I have my iphone connected to my wireless internet and it connects just fine the signal is full strength but anytime I try to go into safari I get the message

    safari can't open the page because it can't find the server.

    Why am I getting this message and how do I fix it. Thank you.

    another thing to add after doing a lil more reading my ip address from what i read is a bogus one. It's 192.168.x.x but that is what the ip adress actually is on my wireles router. What or how should it be set?

    sometimes just rebooting does the trick reboot your router and phone and try again

    "Safari canít open the page because it canít find the server."

    If your iPhone is having troubles connecting to the Internet using Wi-Fi
    but you have full or partial signal strength then this guide will help you fix the
    problem causing this rather confusing and wide spread occurrence.

    If you have a D-Link DI-625 router you will need to shut off the security or purchase a new router.

    Let's Begin

    How to Quickly Fix DNS Settings on the iPhone:

    1st off try this: Settings>General>Reset>Reset network settings.
    If that does not work continue on.


    With the iPhone turned on select "Settings" from the Springboard (iPhone Desktop)
    Select the "Wi-Fi" and once the iPhone has shown your network in the list
    press the Blue & White circular arrow next to it.

    You should now be in the Wi-Fi settings menu for that connection.

    You can try one of two options.

    1. Under "DHCP" you can change the DNS servers
    2. Under "Static" you can edit all of the information manually.

    Option One
    Try OpenDNS

    Set your DNS to: 208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220

    Option Two:

    Set the information under the static tab to the following:

    IP Address: 192.168.1.150
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Router: 192.168.1.1
    DNS: 192.168.1.1


    You may need to edit the Router and DNS address.
    For the DNS address you can simply set it to the address listed in option one.
    Or the Routers IP address.

    For the Router Address you can find this in your Routers user manual or
    by trying the address in your browser as you would any website.

    Just type 192.168.1.1, or 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.255 or 192.168.0.3
    etc etc...

    If you are trying to Connect at work ask your systems Administrator.

    Good Luck!

    i don't have this problem with my home wifi,
    but wifi doesn't work for me for public hotspots.
    problem is that i cannot use option (2) since it's public and IP can only be assigned automatically. option (1) doesn't work.

    I get IP 169.254.x.x
    subnet mask 255.255.0.0

    dhcp isn't assigning an IP then. I had the same problem. I ended up assigning an IP to my phone and was able to get online then.
