    Hi all,
    I did some extensive searching and could not find an answer. Very simple: My iPhone 4S will connect to my home wifi, however, it only works for about 10 seconds after I turn it on, then it stops working (but says it's still connected)

    Solutions for getting it to work again (temporarily; only around 10 seconds)
    1. Renew Lease
    2. Turn wifi on and off
    3. Remove, and re add it network

    Troubleshooting I've done:
    1. Changed DNS
    2. Reset network prefs

    FYI: I remember this also happening on my iPod Touch 4th gen. It does not however, ever happen on my iPad2.

    Any thoughts? My router is WPA protected, and it's an N router, but also broadcasts G.
