Thread: iPhone WI-Fi network workaround?

  1. #1
    Default iPhone WI-Fi network workaround?
    Since I upgraded to 3.0, some wi-fi networks are nearly impossible to connect to.

    The college I attend uses a login screen that is apparently not compatible with the iPhone. It detects the proxy screen (or whatever you want to call it) and I can enter my login information but then I get an error and my iPhone reverts to EDGE (I have a 2g phone with t-mobile).

    Is there a way to force the iPhone to stay connected to the Wi-Fi network? It's jailbroken and everything so a solution to that extent would be fine.

    Thanks,

    It's an all or none kinda thing... you either connect or you don't... there's no app to "force" the connection. I don't believe 3.0 uses any different kind of network verification than older firmwares do. What is the exact error you get? Is it on the phone or from the network you're trying to log into?

    It may be reading it as a mobile device, if thats the case Im not sure there is anything you can do about it.

    Hey guys. A slight change of topic. It appears the iPhone requires a minimum signal strength before it will detect and attempt to connect. Am I incorrect? If I'm right, can that minimum be changed?

    I don't think that you have got any other way left to fix it..
    But,you may have a option by resetting your iPhone and then try to connect to wi-fi...
    It may work for you if you are lucky....
    Good luck...
