So in the midst of drooling/loving my iPhone i've encountered a problem connecting to my wireless network at home. Its protected and i type in the correct password and its not connecting.

I don't expect any one to know how to solve this problem (if you do, i'll be extremely impressed), but i was wondering if anyone was having a simlar problem so if i know its the iPhone or its me.

Mine connected fine. Try reseting your airport and make sure the pass is right.

Try turning the security off on your router and see if that helps. You don't have to leave it that way but it might be that the router's using a security setting the iPhone doesn't support. You don't have a MAC address filter on do you?

does the phone 'detect' the router? or can you not get that far

try turning the phone off and on, maybe it just got locked up

id also try unplugging your router for 30 seconds and then plugging it back in
