I have a iPhone 3G. I'm having trouble connecting to my WIFI.

I'm sick. I'm tired. I have tried a lot. The only thing left to do is to fall off a cliff. Please help!!!

Here's what I have tried:

  1. WIFI with no security

  2. WIFI with WPA security

  3. WIFI with WPA2 security

  4. router modes

    1. b&g only

    2. b&g&n mixed mode

  5. turn off 3G

  6. turn off data roaming

  7. reset network settings

  8. reset router

  9. restore iPhone (not a clean re-store)

Here are some notes:

  1. iPhone 3G firmware version 3.1.3

  2. NeatGear N router

  3. It used to work before. Not sure what made it stop working

  4. WIFI is always found but always get error "unable to connect to network"

  5. All laptops are able to connect

  6. My friend's iPhone can also connect. His firmware version is 3.1.2

  7. My router firmware is up to date

It used to work before. So, you think something changed on my phone that broke it? Maybe an app I installed or the firmware upgrade caused the issue?

A clean restore is the only thing left to do.

Could very well be faulty. I had an iPhone 3G that for a couple days was only intermittently connecting to my home network, nothing I did could resolve it, then it just stopped completely and I had no Wi-Fi at all, Bluetooth also stopped. A quick Google search told me of other peoples' experiences of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth stopping for no reason, so a phone call to Apple and they organised a replacement phone.

Try a clean restore, boot up into DFU Mode ( and restore it from that, if you are still unable to connect to your Wireless Network (and can connect to others) this indicates a issue with your Network. If you can not connect to anything out there then it's your phone.
