    Default WiFi stopped working

    I'm in the UK and have been using a hacked iPhone for the last 5 days quite happily on WiFi and browsing/mail etc. however just today I seem to have lost all connection with the internet. I can connect to either of my WiFi access points and the iPhone gets a sensible looking ip address but I just cannot connect to anything. Can anyone here shed light on this please ?

    I think the system maybe crash. I have already encounter this problem once, but after a reset, everything work fine. You can try to reset the iPhone. Hope it can help you to solve this problem.

    BTW, the reset is hold the home and power buttons for several seconds.

    I've done a reset, no difference. It's got to be something to do with my home network, but I've got 2 wireless access points neither are working for iPhone.

    My iPhone WiFi has worked so far at the airport, and at my office... but it will not work at home!
    The only difference between my home and office wireless routers is that the office uses ascii password and it's 128bit encryption.
    At home I have it set to 64bit ncryption that I hear is not always compatible everywhere....
    I'm guessing it's the encryption type because nothing else is really different....
    I'll try tonight to change my wireless router to 128bit and see if it works with iPhone...

    Other than that, make sure that when you enter the key in your iPhone you are selecting web password, unless you use a passphrase (ascii) then you have to change to web ascii/hex code

    I haven't yet gotten an iPhone but my colleague has and he mentioned that if you use DHCP the DNS settings sometimes doesn't get set properly. Try finding a public DNS and manually set the DNS.

    I haven't tried this DNS solution as I'm not home yet. But will try later and for anyone who wants to try, here's a public DNS I use that works:
