    Hi All,

    I will post this here since my iPhone is Jailbroken 4s 5.1.1. When I am connected to my main Airport base station, I lose my phones IP address and get booted to cellular. I f I go to the area of my house where the access point to extend the network is close, I am on wifi again. I have not changed this setup in over a year and have always had good wifi connectivity in that area. I have a 3rd gen iPad in the area where I lose with the phone and it is always connected. Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts why this would happen all of a sudden?

    Thanks,

    Jason

    This is not a jailbreak issue.
    I would check Apple Knowledge Base.

    And you cannot currently restore a 4S to stock to test it (unless you go to iOS6)

    have you tried reset network settings? (you will loose your stored wifi passwords)

    Ok, thanks all. I have basically setup the network from scratch and get everything working except the phone. I will post on the Apple Discussions.
