Thread: WiFi problem

  1. #1
    Question WiFi problem
    Hello

    This only happens with my home WiFi with 2 iPhones ( 1 first gen & the other is a 3GS iPhone )

    I connect normally to my WiFi connection then after 5 to 10 minutes the connection stops responding and I have to disconnect & reconnect again.

    Other WiFi connections are OK & my home WiFi connection works smoothly with any laptop.

    What might be causing this ??

    If it was on one phone I would say: Try to reset the network settings
    Settings/General/Network/Reset

    Why not try a reset of the router? Sounds more plausible since the 2 phones acts similar
    Do hope that helps

    The first thing I would try is upgrading the firmware of your wireless router, if a new firmware is available. Many times, this fixes incompatibilities between wireless routers and wireless network devices.

    I have read some reports of the iPhone 3GS dropping its connection with Wireless-N routers running in N mode after a few minutes. Some people have reported fixing the dropped connections problem by reconfiguring the Wireless-N router from mixed N/G/B mode to a B/G mixed or just a G mode.

    Here is a link if you want to read through it.
