    Hey guys
    After some wifi advice for my airport extreme.

    My iPhone 4 can see the wifi and used to be able to connect but when it did the data was incredibly slow-a lot slower than 3G. Now though it can see it but won't even connect.

    My iPad uses the same connection (but a 5ghz signal) and is perfect.

    Is this a set up issue? What settings are considered the best for the iPhone?

    Thanks guys

    The iPhone only uses 802.11n in the 2.4 GHz range. Is your network set up to use the 2.4 GHz flavor?

    Yes it is. I've got the latest airport extreme with dual channels. The iPhone gets the 2.4ghz and the iPad gets the 5ghz

    Edit: problem solved! Changed the broadcast channel to 11 and flipped the 802.11 to n(5ghz)/n/b/g(2.4ghz) and things seem hunky dory
