    Hi all,
    i have a 1st gen 8GB iphone running 2.2. I recently moved and now noticed that the wifi signal on my phone sometimes drops. Usually the singal meter icon will drop to 1 bar and i will get an error that indicates my network is unable to be joined. I have 2 macbooks that are also connected to this network that dont exhibit the same issue. Usually if i wait a little i am able to reconnect with my iphone and signal goes back up a few lines on the meter. Its Linksys 802.11G router and Comcast is my ISP. WPA encyption. This was the same set up that i had before the move and did not notice my phone doing this then. I'm afraid there something might be wrong with the phone....thanks

    go to settings, general, reset, then reset network settings, reconnect with wifi, then it should hopefully work fine.
