I have been having a problem lately with my old Linksys router not working with my iPhone. It connects but pages will simply not load up and the widgets won't work.

Has anyone here had any problems like this using the Apple Airport? I am thinking of buying one to see if I can get past this stupid problem with the old router.

Thanks

I've not had very good experiences with Linksys routers. Do laptops work ok? Is the iPhone within the range of the router?
Yes, my MBP and two XP laptops connect no matter where I am in the house. For the past month my iPhone was able to connect just fine too but suddenly this week it stopped.

I can be inches away from the router and the iPhone still won't work, It always connects like I said but it just never responds after connecting.

Ok, thanks for the responses, I ordered the Airport Extreme base station. I'm tired of Linksys.
My Airport Extreme Base Station works perfectly with my iPhone, an iMac, a Dell PC and my office (Dell) laptop. My laptop would not hold the connection on my old Linksys router, but it does on my AEBS.

FWIW, I also have an Airport Express Base Station to channel music from the iMac and Dell to my stereo. That works fantastically well too.
