I've searched for other threads but nothing relevant came up but I know I've seen those threads. Here's my story :

Wifi has slowed down dramatically to the point edge is faster. I would sit two feet from Linksys wireless N router and speed would not increase.
Every time I have a problem , I'd turn phone off and on but most times it doesn't work.
This phone probably crapping out now. From the looks of viewing past threads , lots of people have same problems. I'm thinking iPhone starting to be worthless.

Anybody have ideas to improve wifi? This is annoying. Although I'm making use of my twenty bucks a month but thas besides the point. Please help !

Try resetting your linksys. There should be a button in the back that youre supposed to hold for 30 seconds.
If that doesn't work, you can always try restoring the phone.

how many other wifi networks have you tried?

and it couldn't hurt resetting your router.

This phone has connected to multiple networks and continue having same crawling behavior. I want to say its da phone and not my home router.

Also I just removed a couple apps yesterday and remember a pop up stating phone memory is low. Maybe deleting those might free up memory allowing better wifi ? Just a thought. I'll be monitoring performance as always.

No, that shouldn't really affect it (at least it didn't for me when I ran in to that problem). That has to do with your application partition filling up on the iPhone from too many apps. The app partition is only 300MB so it's easy to fill. Download and use Bosstools... it's made for this situation. Move your fonts and ringtones first and that should free you up for a while.

I got a 10 Mbps. I got wireless router. My problem is I can't ever get YouTube to download the entire video. Always stops halfway. Also when surfing, I get kicked off to home. I didn't press the home button. It just kicks me off. Can someone tell me what Should I do. ?

So, my wifi works perfectly during the day. The Internet speed is good. However , after about 6:00 pm the Internet becomes really slow, and sometimes I cannot connect at all. I then go to speed test, check the speed, and it seems really slow. Then I go to change the server from Modesto to Los angeles or some other server, and the Internet is fine. Are there any explanations for this?

Yes the problem is so many people are trying to get online it will slow everything down. The only thing you could try is getting better Internet but will cost more.
