    SO I went on a little trip and left my iphone at home and my sister used it while i was gone and then i called her to get on it and hek my space for me & it worked she could access our home wifi (by the way we have a 2wire router you get from sbc) anyways when I returned home I got my iphone back and It is acting weird when ever i would try and connect to the wifi it would tell me unable to join network even with me inputing the correct network key, then I decide to diable my network protection so i wouldnt have to use the NWK.When I did that It connects and it sometimes says still cant connect. And when it does connect it stay connected for just a few seconds then its not connected anymore!


    I tried already reseting the network settings and resseting the iphone

    PLEASEEEE HELPPP AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    You tried restarting your router?
    Try connecting to a different wifi to see if it works with other networks.

    Just a thought but have you tried making a backup of your apps and then restoring from a the most recent firmware?

    Edit* Does your router have MAC address filtering enabled?

    Wifi problems happen all the time and it could have been just a hardware issue, which restoring would not fix. Since you didn't wait for answers here, you've made the problem much worse by restoring. Is this a factory unlocked phone?

    Well I dont believe it is factory ulocked, but I restored it once before and
    ended up bricking it. But after that Iws able to just jailbreak,unlock it and it worked it was backto normal.

    but nw I just can't find this file [iPhone1,1_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw]
    I downloaded this one from Iclarified but when I download it its not an ipsw file its just zip foldr with other stuff in it please help..

    Rename it to iPhone1,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw
    make sure it doesnt end in .zip but in .ipsw format.

    It seems that it could be a hardware problem then. Are you still in warranty?

    My original iphone wifi quit working too. It will just search and search for available networks even if I'm right next to the router. Oh well, here's hoping the new iphone goes on sale monday.
