    Here are the facts:

    -wireless icon not showing, in wireless settings it shows generally as connected, sometimes loses connection. This is my home connection, where it has never had a problem before.

    -internet on phone doesn't work when on wireless only. 3G works o.k.

    -I cannot ping other computers on network from phone (using a net utility app)

    -I can ping the phone, or at least the phone's ip address. I was thinking a duplicate ip address on the network might be a problem, but can't find another device with that ip address. IP address, net mask, router, consistent with network settings.

    -tried a hard reset by pressing both sleep and home buttons. No joy.

    -can't seem to change the phone's ip address maually (it seems to be set on static ip). I enter a new value but when I press return it changes to the old ip address.

    -ios7, iphone 4

    Should also mention that I tried rebooting the router. Other iDevices in the house connect fine to the wireless.

    Try resetting network connections and, if that doesn't work a DFU restore.

    Resetting the network settings did it--thanks I7guy!
