Thread: Router problem or iPhone problem?

    Default Router problem or iPhone problem?
    Hi guys,

    I've had my 3gs on 4.0.1os for a while now. The wifi was working perfectly fine up till now. I would have my wifi on and my cellular data network on at the same time and I would still be able to use my wifi.

    Now, I have to turn off my cellular data network off in order to use wifi. I have a 2wire router that broadcasts N and G. My IP address on my iphone is no longer the usual 192.XXX.X.XX, instead it has a long list of 169.XXX.XXX.XXX.

    I also tried to "renew lease" but nothing works, resetting my network settings and rebooting my phone but I get the same results.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Much appreciate it!

    why have you turned off the cellular ? wifi is high priority and it will use that if it sees it so as not to use up your cellular credit
    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    That ip address is your problem, this happened at my friends house recently. Try "forget this network" and then sign back in, if that doesn't work, forget it again and reset your hub (unplug, wait 30 secs then go again) both of these re-fetch an ip address, you should hopefully get a 192.

    Yes, I think you got an ip address conflict with some the devices connected to your network, what Maxxy said will solve the problem, if not? Try to disconnect some xtra devices that are connected to your network to see.
