photo 2 (Above) shows that with my correct password and such in, my phone still rejects to connect, but with photo 3 (below) it shows a tick next to the name, but its actually not connected and you can see i still have 3g up the top.

Can you guys help me at all? If so that would be great because all i use now is 3g and it is really annoying and costly to my bill. TYIA

ps, if you guys need router/modem information and such, just tell me and ill be happy to let you know

A simple fix may be by deleting the 'network' that you phone recognises - 'Forget this network', then set it up again.

On my wi-fi I have had to tweak the wi-fi settings on my computer to get my iPhone to work. One day it's fine, the next, no conection. I'm at work, so I can't tell you what I changed.

Goto Setting-Reset-reset network setting...... Then re-enter your wifi password... Hope that helps

Thumbs up *fixed*

hey guys, thanks for all your help. i rang the apple guys and they suggested to turn off my security to see if it was a problem with the security code, and it seems it was, so it is all fixed. thanks

I suddenly have this problem

I installed a Motorola Gateway SBG6580 on my Charter cable. It set up fine and I had WiFi throughout the house until an hour ago. I also have a Logitech keyboard for use with the TV. That couldn't connect with the TV internet yesterday, and today my iPhone can't connect to the WiFi. My computer is fully connected with my Airport Express, though.

Where is the problem? The lights are all green on the front of the modem, and the Motorola network shows up on the iPhone as normal, but I get the "unable to connect" message.

Where is security in Settings? Why doesn't it ask for a password?
