    Hi guyz, i got a wierd issue with wifi connectivity to iphone 4s. I am able to connect via wifi, run internet on safari and able to browse app store but whenever i download any app, it gives me error "unable to download app"..At the same instant, if i switch my wifi off and try it using 3g network, it gets downloaded and without any error if i download any other app.

    I am having same problem while installing cydia packages and even normal browsing on safari sometimes. Anybody experienced this before? I am guessing the problem is with my router settings coz earlier i was able to download apps.

    I have upgraded my wifi router to latest firmware. i have the following router.

    Following are the "internet'' and ''wireless'' settings (192.168.1.1 --> interface setup--> )set by ISP. THANX:)

    I've had the same issue for a while on ios 5 and still present on ios 6. Tried deleting wifi network and re-adding. Also I noticed it only happens if I'm updating more than one app and if I flick airplane mode on and off and retry it tends to work or if I wait for a few minutes it works. I think it's a wider spread problem as I saw a post on here a few months ago but it seemed to be deleted before anyone else reponded.

    I've only ever had this issue when my network channel was clashing with someone else's

    Only had this problem with WPA TKIP

    Since switching to WPA2 and AES haven't seen it again

    Your mileage may vary

    Lots of thanx guyz. I am gonna switch to wpa2-psk and AES but it's kind of greyed-out, so i might have to restore it to factory settings first. I had already tried to troubleshoot via instructions given on apple disscussion forum. If i am able to solve this issue. i would post my comment here so as to help others as it seems i am not the only person having this prob..thanx
