    Hello there, first post :)

    I've just got an iPhone 4 (my first Apple product!) and I've been playing around with all the settings.

    Under the DHCP settings for my home wireless network, there are two fields I am not familiar with: "Search Domains" and "Client ID". What are these for, what do they do, and what should I be looking for in my router's settings to find the correct values?

    Cheers!

    If they are not set automatically, then you do not need to set them up.

    In my opinion, unless you really know what you are doing, it's best to leave these "advanced" settings well alone!

    If your home network is working ok and Wi-Fi is turned on, your 'phone will automatically find it. Then, just enter your password....

    Everything's working just fine, for sure, I'm just being geeky and pondering the technical significance of these settings. If anyone does know, let me know! :D

    Search Domains has something to do with your ISP. Client ID is just that, your clients name.
