    Interesting- I just have some intermittent wifi issues that started after installing the SBSettings update. Seems fixed after renewing my wifi lease ( in setting on the iPhone)

    People have reported Haptic Pro causing problems with WiFi.

    Perhaps a related problem. I know what my netwrok's ip address range is. Most of the time my iphone takes on an ip that is correct and in this range, however sometimes it will take on an ip that is way outside this range while still connected to my network. And thus wifi will no longer work even though it says its connected. A respring fixes this but its quite annoying.

    Well, it seems that my installation of the SB settings update was at fault. I ended up uninstalling SBSettings, and reinstalling it and all is well.

    Open Settings then click on the wifi connection. then click on the arrow that opens the wifi settings. At the bottom of that page is a button that says "renew lease"

    You can also reboot your router and see if that helps. If you still have problems, you can try to disable the wifi security in your router temporarily and see if you can connect. If so then re-do the wifi security settings. WPA-2 works better than WEP.

    Have you rebooted your router? Changed the security on your network?
