HI, i recently joint Vodafone's VDSL and replace my existing ADSL modem to a Huawei 659 Modem/Router.

it is very strange that i keep having issue with my iphone/ipad connect to the wifi..

so here are my setting for the wifi on my HG659:

i have separate SSID for the two frequency, and set the 2.4 one with channel 1 and bandwidth 20MHZ. the 5 GHZ is set with auto channel and ac bandwidth also as 20MHZ.. i have also got a secondly ADSL router that i use to extend wifi signal for my bedroom by using a lan cable and have its own SSID and asigned with static IP 192.168.1.2 . that one was set with channel 11 tokeep it far away from the other 2.4 one.


the problem is: i have my desktop or laptop connecting to each of the SSID and all working fine, but my ipad or iphone keep having issue for accessing internet though connection to each of the wifi SSID are all successful. does any one know why is this happening and how can i fix, is it because of the configuration above?


Many thanks

I have not had issues with any iPhones or iPads. No reports of any compatibility issues either. Look over your LAN setup.

I have something weird that happens with the kids iPads when they connect to the hg659. They connect ok but fail to pick up the DNS. Try putting the IP address of the router into the DNS field in settings -> WiFi -> yourssid -> info.

Cheers.

If I were you I would make the SSID and password identical for all your wifi networks and keep them on separate channels as you have them at the moment. That way you will create a single roaming network that your iPhone and iPads may be happier with than all these separate networks.
