    my iphone is a v1.1.1 fully unlocked phone. it is jailbreaked too. I am facing some problems with the wifi. Cant detect wifi and lose connection easily.

    i tried to connect to my home's router and i need to be very close to recieve a detection of the network ( it's unsecured). whenever i get connected the wifi bar is full as soon as i start to access youtube or anyother interenet apps it will drop to one bar or disconnect. when i step around 7 steps from the router i cant even recieve the detection of the network. my macbook which is in the other room have no problems at all in connecting to the router.

    i tried all sorts of troubleshooting playng around with the dns settings and even changing the channels but to no avail.

    i decided to proceed to a hotspot to try instead. my phone cannot detect any network at all. tried at starbucks and mac. nothing

    Thus my verdict was something was wrong in my phone.
    but is it the hardware problem as in the anthena is spoilt or is it due to the software problem. anyone facing the same problem b4? i would really appreciate any solutions to solve my problem!

    hi, does your phone still carry on searching for other networks even if is connected.
    there will be a sun icon that will keep rotating once in 5 secs looking for other network?

    can your phone connect to hotspots? or should i say even detect them?

    i need help man!

    Check if you have SSH running on your iPhone it may be creating a conflict/traffic in your iPhone's WIFI .
    Use the Service's app to disable EDGE and SSH and test only with WIFI.
    Also test it disabling the WIFI Auto Detec feature and connect manually to your wifi network.

    Check any other app that may be trying to use your network connection in your iPhone.

    Also there is an app called SysInfo that may help you know what is going on with your iPhone (processes, etc.)

    I hope this enlighten some gurus out there to help you better, I am just shooting some ideas. I'm not sure if they are going to work for you or if they are really causing the problem.
