    Default IPHONE Wi Fi CONNECTION IMPORTANT INFO.

    I have been reading posts here of people having problems connecting to wi fi with IPHONE.
    You must understand this information if you want your wi fi connection to work.

    FIRST step and most important of all, is to make sure where ever you are in your home or outside is that the wireless router in it's application program where you do all the settings to secure your router, the wireless part where you secure your router , the channel setting in the wireless tab most be set to channel 1, in most cases by default it is set but than again it depends on the router brand and also if you are trying to use it somewhere outside like coffee shops and other places that offer wireless internet, in that case if you cannot connect MOST LIKELY their channel settings are not 1 and you will not be able to connect no matter what you try and do to your IPhone.

    SECOND step now is your IPHONE CONFIGURATION , here are the steps
    settings/wi-fi make sure it is on in blue/find the connection that you know is available for you,that you can get access too, tap your finger between the name and lock icon ,you should get a pop up with security and password on the bottom/security,tap next to it and choose bottom one wep hex or ascll, choose it and than go back and enter the password after tap join and you are good to go and surf the net.

    Keep in mind you are doing this because most places the wireless router is secure and you need a password to connect.


    Another thing also is that on the IPhone wi fi when it detects networks, you will notice the signal strength is low that is normal for it to do this, but once you connect and the password is good and you start surfing the net a couple of secs later you will notice that the strength is at the max and strong signal is coming.


    From a technical point of view I believe the IPhone wi fi part of it, somehow is made only to accept channel 1 on the wireless routers, in which it is the default standard for most of them.

    Default

    No offense, but that's not really true at all. Your router does not have to be on channel 1. The iPhone wouldn't be very 802.11b/g compliant if that was the case. I've used my iPhone with lots of wireless connections, and none of them have been on channel 1.

    Most routers (particularly Linksys and DLink I believe) default to channel 6, not 1.

    I connected on both Channel 11 and 7 with private WPA key... works better than my mac !! hehe.
    By the way on the prepaid signup of AT&T I noted that on my safari (MAC) I cannot choose state and province (the dropdown doesn't show with all countries list BUT remains blocked to something like "PLEASE CHOOSE THE COUNTRY")...
    I tried with the Iphone safari and it worked !!! WOW....

    I think wifi is probably the simplest I have ever seen and works perfectly... very simple also joining other "public" networks since you dont' need to go configuring but you are asked if to join a net directly in safari or mail... very fast and effective.
