    As the subject says, my iPhone is having problems connecting to my WiFi at home. There are times when it works just fine (like for 6 hours today) and there are times when I cant get it on at all. Today I used in nearly all day over the WiFi with no problem. I went into town, came back, and no matter what I do I can't get it to connect to the internet. It only seems to randomly decide to connect to the internet for some reason. I can use the Remote app and even Mocha VNC Lite to control my computer via the WiFi, yet I can't use safari, myspace, email, etc. Ive tried forgetting the network, turning on/off wifi numerous times, turning off the phone, soft resets, and all kinds of different variations of these to try to get it to work, but just can't for some reason. Anyone have a clue?

    Oh and this only seems to happen at my house, I've never had WiFi problems elsewhere.

    Well, environmental factors can affect WiFi signal, but you may want to try the things mentioned in this article.
