Have you tried resetting the iPhone's network settings via Settings/General/Reset?
Resetting tends to resolve most network-related issues.
I have the same problem, still.
I've had Linksys WRT54GC (small one), and that worked fine for iPhone, my 15" and 17" MacBooks Pro.
The little one died (tried to upload firmware via wireless, something got disconnected and I pulled the plug - it was in the middle of flashing. Lesson learned), and I got new and shiny Linksys WRT310N, firmware was 1.00.01 at that point.
Right away I've tried setting up WPA2-Personal encryption, but I kept having problems with all Apples connecting (Windows machines connected fine). I switched to WEP 64-bit, and both MacBooks started working, but iPhone is still touchy.
I've updated Linksys to latest firmware 1.00.04, no help. iPhone is on 1.1.2, haven't had a chance to update to 1.1.3 (waiting for 2.0 now).
As far as iPhone, it sees the network - if you go to wireless, you just click on my network, and it doesn't ask for passkey (it remembers). It works until you put it to sleep, and then you have to do it again (by sleep I mean pressing the top button).
All other WIFI network I have saved on phone work perfectly fine, all the time, auto-join, etc. Just my home, and of course, this is the one I would like to use the most.
I've tried contacting Linksys, and long story short, they said "not our problem, as everything but your iphone works".
I've tried resetting linksys multiple times, tried different encryptions and passkeys and network names - no luck.
I've also tried forgetting the network and rejoining, no help. I really don't want to completely reset the phone, as I'm always afraid of losing stuff on it.
Any other ideas?
I'm having the same problem. In the wi-fi settings, it shows that I am connected to my home network. But the phone uses the edge network rather than wifi. It used to work fine. I have no problems connecting to the home network with imac or macbook pro.
I am having the same problem with my unlocked iphone it says the wi-fi is on but, I can't connect to safari,you tube,itunes,installer, and etc. This sucks so much cause the phone is basically useless. I tried to jailbreak it again but, it didn't solve anything. Can somebody please tell me how i can fix this issue. I really need my internet and everything else to work again.
I have the exact same issue and yes I'm connected to my home network, everyone else around me is password protected.
i was having this problem a few weeks ago. now my iphone says it is connected to my wifi when im in settings but it is not. the wifi icon does not appear in the top left by the edge symbol and itunes cannot be accessed, which is only possible through wifi. any help is appriciated
Re: renaming, remember that you can get the same effect through Settings by telling the iPhone to "forget" a network.
What are your settings on your home linksys network? i'm not sure it can be fixed, i know tech-savvy friends who have not gotten their home wifis to work with their iPhones, so there must be some basic issues here. personally i run with no security settings on my home wifi (i'm happy to share with neighbors) and the iphone works fine.
