Once you have the phrase that codes the router, how do you translate this to the iPhone? There are so many options in setup. Is the router pharse the password? etc

Try calling Apple support: if you just purchased your iPhone they should be able to talk you through it: 1-800-275-2273
Your iPhone should pick up the ip address of the wireless router. If your router has a password or encryption, the iPhone will ask you automatically for the password.

I just bought a Belkin N Wireless Router today and set it up for my 2 PC's & when I went to get my iPhone it had already registered the Belkin wi-fi and I could use wifi instantly without any configuration or problems. I went into airplane mode just to make sure and I could access safari, email, iTunes and download apps at very good speeds. At last now I have wifi! The Belkin router just worked out of the box for me. Of course I knew to go into my modem's browser address and turn on NAT. Everything just worked and I never even used the cd software included to set it up. No passwords or errors or problems. Terrific!

This might be helpful

If this helps anyone… I had the problem that my iPhone didn’t detect my wi-fi router at home, and after I entered my router (192.168.2.1) I started playing around changing settings made 2 changes:
-Changed the 802.11e QoS configuration (whatever that means) from off to on.
-Replaced an hyphened character (á) in the SSID for a normal character (a).
After doing this 2 steps clicked on aplly, waited 25 seconds for it to restart and now my iPhone detect my home wifi connection.
I don’t know which one of this steps is the one, but is 2 in the morning and I’m not gonna look into it now.
Hope this helps anyone.

The iPhone 3G has many wifi issues on a hand-Full of the phones the wifi chip could get over heated and therefore break etc . all i can recommend you to do is go on your iPhone into settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings .....and see if that works . also is the wifi connection your personal connection or is it one you randomly found?

In settings I turn my wi-fi on, it shows a check mark next to my network, but the wi-fi symbol doesn't come on. My iPad and my husbands iPhone works, but mine doesn't. Can someone help? Thanks!

First thing I'd try is going to Settings->General->Reset->Reset Network Settings. Keep in mind this will erase your stored wifi passwords.

Yes, I have also tried syncing to iTunes as a new phone, doing a hard reset. I don't know what else to do. I called Apple and they said, I can get a new one for $199.00 I don't think it's worth it since the iPhone 5 is coming soon...

Have u tried restoring it in iTunes? This may fix the problem.

I don't see why Apple won't replace it since it's obviously a defect on the phone. -_-
