Thread: iphone not working on wifi network.

  1. #1
    Default iphone not working on wifi network.
    it should detect the settings automatically because it has before but it is not. it shows full wifi signal but when i go to safari as soon as i try to open a page it automatically says that it cannot connect to the server. it only downloads through att's edge and i dont have the unlimited data since this isnt my number (its my fathers number that just so happens to be att or as the sim and phone says "cingular". i live in the DR and the iphone is unlocked) any clues on what could be going on? this is really pissing me off, im starting to worry that this phone isnt all i thought it would be...

    Turning the phone off and on doesn't fix the issue?

    Nope. I was able to connect to a weaker network in the other room (business account), but mine won't work. I'm going to try resetting the password on my router.

    nope. i took the damn sim out and then restarted the phone and still nothing. its giving FULL wifi signal strength and the wifi antenna is at the same desk im sitting at and i have no clue what could be the problem. the wifi is on the second floor and the ps3 in the basement gets signal and works on the wifi just fine, damn but thats besides the point anyways! it was working on the phone a few days ago (went away for the weekend and speaking of which, went to a supermarket with wifi and it worked there as well). im really getting pissed...

    what about for those that have reset the router and are still having the issue?

    i had the problem with my wifi not signing in automaticly after putting phone to sleep. Then i found a report online someone had the same problem and bought it to genius bar. Basically the guy just switched the phone to "Airplane" mode, resetted the wifi network in "setting -> General" and switched it back.

    Worked for me, maybe you can have a go too.

    I am trying to use an iPhone with an old AT&T account (before Cingular) and I am stuck on page 4 of the guide due to the same problem.

    I tried the reset above and get nothing. I have found free Wi-Fi hotspots that allow me to use Safari and Installer but when I go home and try to connect to my Mac Mini my iPhone says unable to connect for a split second and then appears to be connected with full signal strength but I cannot use Safari or Cyberduck or anything else over Wi-Fi.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but do I have to have an Airport base station to connect my iPhone to my Mac Mini and complete the unlock or should I be able to connect directly?

    Try renaming your SSID. It's what I did and it worked perfectly.

    Thanks for the advise. Now how exactly do I do that? This is the first time I have had to use Airport.

    I had the same prob, I tried every settings on my router still no luck was reading an article on wifi chips saying that they are over heating. Goes to prove they are cheaply made, and in some cases meant to break on you. Free Wifi? lol you knew that was coming!!
