    Maybe I didnt understand your first post- you said that your iphone works fine at your neighbors house? If so then its a communication issue between your iphone and your own wifi network.

    There are a couple of options:

    1: Temporarily disable your wifi network security and see if your iphone can connect. If so tehn you can try to re-enable your wifi security. I personally found that WPA-2 security works the best with my iphone.

    2- get into your router settings and see if your IP address is resolving for your iphone. More than a few times- because I have dynamic IP addresses, if there are several wireless devices, occasionally I'll end up with teh iphone showing a "weird " ip address. If this is the case- try and get the iP address to resolve. In my case I ended up giving my iPhone a unique name as it would always show up as "new-hostx" x being a number. If this somehow changed, I couldnt connect to the internet.

    Is you r iphone address different as shown from your pc in teh router settings than as shown on teh iphone? Thats is your problem. If you are saying the ip address is different than your PC's ip address - well it should be.

    What you can try is to go into your iphone settings, press "wifi" then press teh little arrow on teh right of your wifi connection to get into the wifi settings. Press forget this network, close settings and reboot your iphone. Then try and reconnect to your network.

    hey bhz1

    i went back in to the router settings and changed the security to wep2 and this time it worked ????

    but now my problem is that the wifi is really slow now and i say people disabled their routers security to make it faster but im really dont want to do that.

    any ideas

    cheers
