    I have recently been encountering a problem where when I try to connect to a WiFi network with a password that I know for sure is right, it won't let me and the phone will tell me "Incorrect password for ________" To fix this every time I have to reset my network settings which can get very tedious. Once I reset, I plug the password back in and it works but after an hour or so, any networks I have not connected to within that first hour will start giving me the "wrong password" error even if the password is right. Any tips/suggestions?

    I am running 5.0.1, jailbroken.

    Never heard of that before.
    You're sure its not a particular router that's giving you problems? Or is it every wifi you ever try to connect?

    For sure it's not the routers. I used to be able to connect to these routers problem free with this iPhone.

    Try re-setting your network settings on the phone, and if you can, change the routers password...Something is corrupt.

    I do reset the network settings, that's the only way I can join 1 of the 3 networks I frequently use.

    ----------

    I noticed if I enter the password on a thirdparty app like WiFiFoFum, I can usually connect with a 90% success rate to any network. Perhaps there is a networks cache I can delete or something?

    I'd like to keep restore out of the question if at all possible. Anyone have any suggestions?
