    That's what I was referring to. Not the 3G network, but 3G model iPhones.

    Default wi-fi issue after winpwn
    Using Winpwn, i successfully pwned both a 2G 8GB iPhone and a 3G 16GB iPhone to v2.0.1. However, in both instances, despite successfully connecting to the wifi (the wifi icon appears on the top, and both devices are successfully pinged from a computer), safari and other apps using internet do not seem to work, and revert back to either 3G or GPRS.

    on the 3G iPhone, i even connect successfully via SSH.

    I am wondering whether there are any users who have success in using their internet connection via their browser.

    MY iphone has "no wifi"

    Where you click wifi its grey and locked, you cant even turn wifi on.

    Anyone know a solution? I am running 2.0 winpwn. I unlocked and jailbroke with vista

    My problem is the same. It asks to join the Wi-Fi connection and i put in the password and it seems okay. I then get the Wi-Fi bar on the top so it looks like it's working, but when I open Safari (or anything else that tries to use to access the internet), the Wi-Fi logo will change to the EDGE icon, and will use the EDGE connection. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    edit: Also, this is the first gen iPhone, not the 3G
    Update: I was actually at a local college with free Wi-Fi, and I tried to connect for the heck of it, and it actually worked. So the problem is between my phone and my Wi-Fi connection at home. The problem wasn't there for any of the previous iPhone firmwares; only after 2.0 has it not worked. All of the people saying that their Wi-Fi isn't working, can you try a different Wi-Fi connection? See if that works. While you do that, I'll still wait for an answer on a fix. I've tried asking IRC channels,, modmyi, and still nothing. It's getting a little frustrating only being able to use EDGE. I guess I could try resetting my router, but there are so many custom settings I would need to remember. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    i have noticed this slowly happening on my iphone 1G 4GB. i used Pwnage for OSX to go to v 2.0.1 a few days after it came out.

    It seemed like it was better at first, but now it is getting worse. FYI I have gotten it to work occasionally by turning off the phone, turning it back on, going to WIFI and having it search. Then it will be on for a minute. Sometimes halfway thru dwnloading a page via Wifi it switches to Edge.

    For the last few days I get Wifi about 1/10th of the time. Sometimes it does work tho. Sometimes I get it to work by going to the WIFI settings, getting on a network, then quick checking mail. These seems to keep the wifi open and then I can get to web pages for a few minutes. Something is dropping the Wifi connection too fast imho.

    I can also watch my network in WIFI settings appear and disappear and I am sitting 5 feet from an Airport Extreme N router.

    I was about to upgrade to 2.0.2 but it seems like same problems?

    Oh yeah one other thing, I did start using a foreign SIM around the time this started but I cant remember if I Pwn my phone when I was away or when I got back... Hope this helps!

    Has anybody find a solution to the wifi issue? Still nothing for me. I can't believe Apple is not aknowledging this problem. So many people have this problem!

    There are numerous post on Apple's forums so they do know about it, there just not going to admit to it. They can get everyone to upgrade their phones to a 3GS, why would the fix all of our "out of warranty" 1st gen's? Here's just one thread that I've followed for quite some time now. 2.2.1 Killed my wifi
