Hi there,

First of all you will have to configure your router to accept the iPhone. To do this you will need to go in to the router in your browser window and add your new device, it will ask you for your MAC number which can be found under the back cover of your iPhone or in your WIFI settings.

Then you will need to configure your router to either automatically assign an IP Address or use an allocated IP Address and use the same setting on your iPhone. Also, you will need to configure your router to either assign a DNS Server automatically or to use an allocated DNS Server and once again you will need to use the same settings on your iPhone.

Your IP Address is crucial in oreder for your iPhone to connect to your wireless network. Your DNS Server is crucial in order for your iPhone to access the internet through your wireless network.

    Hi there,



    You may also have to set the WEP Key on your iPhone. This key is the code that you set to encrypt data.

Why can't I connect my iMac to my Dlink DIR-615 wireless router?


That is a older wifi access point and maybe the N is not compatible for your imac. I would get a dual band 2.4/5Mhz wifi Access Point.

How to connect an iPhone to the Internet


Connecting your iPhone to the internet is an easy process. You just simply use any application on your iPhone which uses internet service.

Your iPhone can either use WiFi or Cellular for internet access.

- A WiFi network is simply a wireless network. You can find them at coffee shops, libraries or even at your house if you a router setup for wireless access.

- Cellular data networks allow Internet connectivity over the cellular network. Check your carrier's network coverage in your area for availability.

When you use an application on your iPhone that requires internet service it will either connect to the last WiFi network used, or if that network is not available it will list all available networks in range. You can simply tap on the network you wish to join and it will connect. If the network requires a password it will show a lock icon. If no Wifi networks are available your iPhone will connect over the cellular data network and fees may apply.


To see all the Wi-Fi networks in range, from the Home screen choose Settings > Wi-Fi. Tap a network to join it.

After a while my iphone 4 can't connect to my D-link wireless router. the password is correct, and after router restart, the iphone can connect. every day when I come back from work the iphone is not...


Solution - reset the network settings Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings
This will remove previous settings and bugs related to connecting to the wireless, try reconnecting, and see if this solves the issue for you.
If it does not, connect your iPhone to iTunes, backup your iphone, and perform a full 'restore'.
This will solve the problem, unless there is a hardware issue with the wireless module inside the iphone.

How we connect internet to iphone


The iPhone can connect to the internet through both Wi-Fi and EDGE. Wi-Fi would be the wireless network at your home or business. When the iPhone connects to the internet through EDGE, it is actually connecting through the AT&T phone connection (or any other service provider the iPhone works with in the future).
safari.jpgTo the connect to the internet, you simply need to open up Safari (which is the internet browser used by the iPhone). If you're used to using a pc, think of Safari as the 'Internet Explorer' that the iPhone uses. You can use Safari the same way you could use Internet Explorer.
Once you open up Safari, the iPhone will attempt to connect to the internet. If there are wireless networks available wherever you happen to be, the iPhone will prompt you to choose one to connect to. If you're trying to connect to a network that has security, you will be prompted to enter the password for the network.
If you want to check to see whether there is a wireless network available where you live, work, or play, go to 'Settings' and then 'Wi-Fi'. The iPhone will show you all of the wireless networks that are available.
If there aren't any wireless networks to connect to, iPhone will connect to the internet over EDGE. Connection speeds over EDGE will likely be somewhat slower than they would be over a Wi-Fi network. You will also not be able to answer phone calls while connected to the internet through EDGE. If the iPhone is connected to the internet over EDGE you will see this small icon at the top of your screen: edge-icon.jpg

I have a DI 624 router which is being used by laptops in our house but when i try to find the wireless network on my iphone, ipad and other computers I can't see the network, can you please help? thanks


Did you set the router to _NOT_ "broadcast" the SSID?

On the iPad/iPhone, under Settings, did you "enable" the WiFi?

Does the iPhone detect wireless networks at an Internet Cafe' or a Starbucks or a Public Library?

Did you configure the router to allow only specific MAC-addresses?

Can you view the "log-file" on the router, to see what computers tried to connect?

Everytime my wife's iphone connects to our home network, my laptop looses the internet connection and goes to a local connection only. I have to disconnect and reconnect and everything works fine.


I find that when it comes to iphones and home wireless networks, that using 64bit encryption is the best. I'm not sure what you are using now, but give this a try.

How do i pair my iphone to my netgear router? the model number is dg834gu v5


Are you trying to connect WIFI? "pairing" is a bluetooth function. If the router has not already been configured for WIFI, then your iphone should see a local wireless network called Netgear. You should be able to connect to it with your iphone simply by selecting it and answering the security question. If it has already been configured, you should make sure it was setup for WPA or WPA2 (NOT WEP) When it was configured, it should have been setup with a passphrase (key code, encryption key) which you need to intially provide on your iphone to make the connection. Its pretty straight forward.

When i select my Linksys WiFi connection on my Iphone I still has the "E" edge symbol on my Status bar even though wifi is selected.


You can tell iPhone is connected to the Internet over a cellular data network if you see ht1695_utms_onb.png,ht1695_3b.jpg or ht1695_gprs_onb.png in the status bar at the top of the screen.

Do you have problems connecting to any other wireless network with your iPhone?

Have you tried using the forget this network option on your iPhone for your wireless network followed by trying to connect to the network again, and/or using the reset network settings option on your iPhone which erases all previously saved wi-fi connections that you have successfully connected to with your iPhone?

IPhone not pickign up wireless network...


You are right: the phone should default to the wireless. How do you know the iPhone is on your WIFI? Go to "settings, WIFI Networks" and see if there is an IP address assigned by your router. You can't from the icons alone.
