    Well I had my iPhone since launch and as soon as i got it up and running, I connected to my wifi at home that of course is password protected. anyways it works great. all i had to do was come in range of my home wifi and it automaticly did what it had to do. Now...it keeps asking me for my password everytime i come in range or turn on the wifi. anyone know why this is?

    Oh yeah, about a software update.....it may come till after the launch of the new OS X....i think that makes sense. cause all the programers are now busy with finishing up OS X since the work on the iPhone is well....just about done...so i think they are going to concentrate on leopard...there just might be a handful of techs working on the iPhone's hickups..........anyways back to my question above...anyone has this happen to them?:mad:

    It might have something to do with your network. Is it WEP secured or unsecured? If it's unsecured, then it might be wanting to connect to another unsecured network in the vicinity.

    can anyone help me?
    my new bought iPhone, all of sudden, the wifi under setting turned blurred
    and shown "NO WIFI" i did try to reboot, but can't help.

    my problem is, i had my iPhone unlocked.
    I worry if i take it back to Apple store, they would reject my request since i didn't sign up for AT&T. because I called the 1-800-MY-APPLE for tech support,
    the guy had to get my AT&T number in order to solve my problem.

    what can i do?

    Have you checked the wifi access point (router) to see if that is ok, or that your wifi is even on (on you iPhone)? On the Ipod touch I have an on/off switch for wifi under "settings"

    What version of firmware do you have on your iPhone? Have you tried restoring it in iTunes?

    it has nothing to do with my router, but my iPhone
    i'm using a 1.1.1 version,
    but if restore in iTune, do i have to RE-activite and Unlock it again?

    it's weird... that losing the Wi-Fi wasn;t too big deal for me, but the battery would drain dramatically from, 2 days to 6 hrs

    I would imagine you would have to unlock again if you restore in iTunes. If you are worried about wifi draining your battery, just switch it off, and it won't look for a signal.. I know the touch has this ability, I would imagine the iPhone does also?

    my problem is WiFi is greyed! switching off is not an option.

    But, in my iPhone's normal days, even I switched on all day long, the battery was normally run.

    but I found one thing, this Wifi OUT were happened right after come back from a place required roaming.

    Hi Gloria,

    My WiFi broke down on my iPod Touch. It was working OK one morning, I watched a 30 minute video, and when I went back into Safari I couldn't. I checked the WiFi settings and it was grayed out. I rebooted, restored, reset, etc., and nothing fixed the problem. Apple said it was a hardware problem, and yes my battery also rapidly exhausted all power during the "no WiFi" problem. It's as if the unit was continuously trying to get the WiFi to work or maybe there's some sort of circuitry that has something to do with the battery that also breaks the WiFi. It's definitely some bug in the hardware of the iPhone/iPod Touch.

    First try reseting both the phone and your router. Of that doesn't work, make sure your router's settings aren'tessed up and do a Restore in iTunes.

    You shouldn't have to do anything except key in your wifi router's passkey. If you've messed with the settings, then you might want to do a full restore and start fresh. IF your wifi is working for your laptop, it should work for you iPhone. You should get a Wifi Available window pop open, and then be prompted to key in the passkey.

    1. Does anything else work with that WiFi setup?

    2. Make sure your connection is set for DHCP.
