    This guide will be showing you how to improve your iPhone or iPod touch's Wireless Internet connection.
    This guide is assuming you have a Linksys Wireless Router, but has the same idea for most Wireless Routers.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. Login into your router using the following default (unless changed):

    Username: admin
    Password: admin

    2. Navigate to the "WIRELESS" Tab

    3. Select: "Manual" (if not already selected)

    4. Find the menu that says "NETWORK MODE" and set it to "BG- MIXED"

    5. Restart your Wireless Router and iPhone or iPod touch and you should notice much stronger and faster Wireless Internet.

    Sure the iPhone can support wireless G, but most routers will have this enabled by default. You might want to re-title this "Make sure your router is not restricted to 802.11B only"

    This also assumes that your internet is faster than 11MB/s (depending on the number of devices actively using that wifi point). You will get more WIFI issues from things such as channel overlap and interference from other 2.4ghz devices

    Actually, most routers (including Linksys),will have it set to Mixed. Not BG-MIXED.

    What if you're using "n" already? Won't that slow it down?
