I just received my iPhone as part of my new vodafone business package, and for some reaons I can't connect to the WiFi in my office.

I know the p/w, and have my laptop connected but it won't let the iPhone connect.

At home I am fine, it connected first time.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Rob

Are you using mac address filtering on the AP?

Also try switching on/off aeroplane mode, that fixes alot of wifi issues.

I would guess you would have to talk to who ever setup the wifi at your work and ask if they are using mac filtering. If so you can give him your mac address which will be displayed in the wifi settings on the phone and then it will allow you to connect.. its an extra security measure.

Is that the Wi-Fi address in "Settings/About"?

good question, that does look like a mac address. I'd go with that.

You might also want to look into what type of wireless access point you're running in your office. There were a few problems connecting to some devices with the initial iPhone release. I'm not sure if this was fixed in later iPhone firmware releases, but it seemed to be fixed by upgrading the firmware on the wireless device.
