I have a 1st generation iPhone, and am having a similar problem. It doesn't join my network initially. I have to go to settings and select our network. Then when I get online with my wifi, it bounces back and forth between wifi and edge. Then finally it just stays on edge. Then when I go back to settings my network isn't available. If I try typing my network in manually, it says not able to connect to network. I don't think it's my router or Internet because i unplugged the router and plugged it back in, and my laptop and ps3 work fine. I tried resetting my phone, and I even restored it to the factory settings, and still no luck! Someone have any suggestions?

Okay Blue, have you tried just turning Wifi on/off? and then if you still have no luck, then restart your phone, and then if you're still having problems then you may have to do a restore.

From reading the Wifi forum....a lot of users have this issue....some people have had success by going into settings under General...and resetting network settings.
