    Question WiFi Connection Problem with open wifi hotspot

    I was in a bar that has open free wifi.

    I can connect to the router, get an IP address etc etc BUT...cannot surf the web or anything.

    I read the post about the HEX key but this doesnt apply on a free, open, non-password protected router.

    Any ideas ?

    It's a DNS issue on the iPhone.

    Select the WiFi network and change the DNS to 208.67.220.220 (www.opendns.com)

    My iPhone had the same problem.
