    Guys,

    Got a problem with an iPhone 4 that simply will not connect to our home Wi-Fi!!

    Some background - we have 3 x iPhone 4 in the house - and 1 X iPhone 4S

    The network is two Apple Extremes and a few Airport Express units.

    The phone in question will connect to external Wi-Fi networks - it will connect to another Wi-Fi network we have in the house...BUT not the main network.

    Every other phone is fine - and they all have the same settings and updated 5..0.1 - etc - this phone has been a problem even before IOS5 - and its just bizarre - as it will connect elsewhere. If I was to take it to the Apple store I'm confident it wold connect to their network and they'd say "theres nothing wrong with it"??

    SO I am at my wits end with this phone! I've tried restoring it twice - I've tried re-setting the network - the network has the latest firmware - I have tried forgetting the offending network and re-joining - I've tried everything!

    When I try to join the network it asks for the password - then the circle thing just churns away but never connects or gets the "tick"

    Anyone got any ideas??

    Thanks!!

    Does the other iDevices have any problem forgetting the network and reconnect?

    I had the same problem. I was able to connect again to my home Airport wifi by shutting down my iPhone, turning it back on, and quitting all open apps -- in that order. Don't know if shutting down and re-starting did the trick or if quitting the open apps did it, but I was immediately connected to my wifi.
