I-Phone 4 And my Network.
 
My wifes New Iphone cant connect to my network.

Ive tryed with a buddies iphone and Ipad, All cant connect, So i think its my network.

Im able to connect all my laptops no problem (MS, Not Apple)


Dlink 655N Is my router.

Do i need to turn something on or off on the dlink?

How long is your password on the router? Apple products have a known issue with long passwords that prevent them from logging on routers. Try changing your router password to under 12 characters and see if it works. Make sure to reboot the device (router AND phone) after changing them.

No, I dont know why this is the case. Yes Apple should fix it since it has existed (to my knowledge) since iPhone 3G, but they havnt.

Good luck.

from my experience, apple products don't like WPA2 either :\

I use WPA2 personal w/ my WRT310n (DDWRT) and all 4 of my Apple devices have no problem connecting. http://smiliesftw.com/x/dunno.gif

I would disable security all together and see if it can connect, then try various forms of security to see what works for you.

I know I had issues getting my sony ericsson vivaz pro connecting to my linksys wrt610n until I found out the mac addy for my phone! Once I had that saved in my router its been happy to connect every time without issue, so consider that as another option to check out as well.

Not to high jack your thread but this caught my attention. I have the same router but i have yet to put dd-wrt on it. Does it make huge difference? Should i take the time to put it on?

I think it is fantastic. It really does give you a lot of flexibility. Plus the fact that it is simple to use.

As long as your router revision supports DDWRT then it should only take a few minutes to install.

DD-WRT is about a quadrillion + 472145219421 times better then any stock s*** d-link puts out, highly recommended to upgrade if you have the ability.

Also, try to connect to the wireless with no security first as suggested, then up the ante form there. WPA + AES (not TKIP)

What kind of f/w your running on your router?

I have mine on 1.35NA and its been solid.
