    I have a question, not sure if this is the place to put it though. *I have a jailbroken 3GS phone all works fine when not connected to my home wifi, but when I connect to my home wifi i can not do anything, everything times out, but when i turn wifi off all is good on my 3g connection. *Now I have been d/l apps and such do I have a virus ? *If I do a complete restore do I have to have the phone re-broken and then have cidia re-installed and instaus and what notand winterboard ?

    I really want the speed of my wifi I miss it, oh it worked fine till last night as a matter of fact.

    Thanks

    If it worked until last night, go back & check what you did since then. Check your router and connection out. It may not be the phone. Did you pay your cable bill?

    When I updated t the new firmware and entered my wifi password & all, I typo's the password. The iPhone had the wifi signal icon but I wasn't getting any data in or out through wifi. Fine on 3G though.

    If you want more help I advise you change the thread title to something a little more descriptive! Then people with the know how are more likely to come a-visiting!

    If the phone is actually connecting to your home WiFi, and you are still unable to access the internet.... Reset the router, if a router reset doesn't fix it, call your service provider.

    It would have been nice if you had included that in your first post....Reset the network settings in your phone. Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings.

    HAHA

    That's the first thing I check. I'm notoriously lazy about paying bills. I've woken up to no internet and no cable tv many times.
