    Can you ping the IP of the phone? If no, sort out the network then try again.
    Note that unless you have the Insomnia app installed, the phone will tear down the wifi connection within 10 seconds of the device sleeping.

    If you can ping the phone, have you tried to ssh into it? Are you ever prompted to accept its encryption key?

    For reference, when asking for assistance, it's helpful to indicate what steps you've already taken to troubleshoot and whatnot.

    Oh boy.

    OK, when your phone is on your wireless network and you've confirmed it has connectivity, go to your computer and ping the IP address that is assigned to your phone's wifi interface.

    You can find the IP by going to settings-->wi-fi--><blue arrow next to name of your wifi network>

    Your phone's IP address is problably something like 192.168.1.xxx

    On your computer, open a command prompt (I'll assume you're on windows) and type "ping <IP address of phone>" without the quotes or brackets. You should see that it is replying.

    EXACT same problem here! :(

    Safari, Mail, etc, etc works fine on the iPhone itself, but I can't SSH into it, nor ping it.

    wtf is wrong? :confused:

    Please help

    Problem solved!
    My Airport Express basestation just needed to be restarted!
