I updated yesterday to ios 5.1 and now I am unable to join my home network. I have reset network connections, restarted, entered correct name and passwords and get the message "unable to join ____". i didn't have this problem until the update.
We have two iPhones at home that, all of a sudden, cannot connect to the home wifi network. I rebooted the cable modem and was then able to see and connect to the network with both iPhones and an iPad, but, a few minutes later, was unable to join the network. I have an iMac and a Thinkpad laptop that both connect fine and stay connected. I've tried rebooting the iPhones and forgetting the network, but the problem keeps coming back. I called Comcast to suggest they "change the channel" on their wireless gateway, but they couldn't do it.
Today we replaced my wife's iPhone 4S with a new one, (The old iPhone, although recently purchased, had battery issues and could not hold a charge). We returned home and the new iPhone cannot connect to our WiFi network. We would select the network, and the system would not even ask for a password, but immediately responded with "Unable to join network "[name of network]". The new iPhone was able to connect to the WiFi in the Apple Store.
Per the Troubleshooting FAQ on this, I reset the network settings. We now are taken to the Password screen (which was unavailable to us before the reset), yet the the system seemingly does not take it, since we also get the "Unable to join network "[name of network]" message. Our MacBooks and another iPhone can successfully join the network and access the Internet.
I have an AirPort Extreme running the latest software. I've tried everything and still am unable to join my own wifi network from my iPhone 4s, iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 3G, my girlfriend's iPhone 4. The only devices that will connect to the network are our MacBook Pros and iPads, (1 and 2). I have reset the airport to default settings, I've restored my iPhone, I've even disabled the password. I am still unable to join my open airport extreme wifi network.
I tried to join an open wireless network in a cafe using my 3GS, and I got the message 'Unable to join network' and the SSID of the network. At the time I just though it was a problem with the cafe's network and didn't think about it again.
We have 2 iMacs, an iPad, iPhone, and other wifi devices such as a Nook. I have AirPort Express and the green light is on, it is connected to the Linksys router that is connected to my cable modem (RCN). I have attempted a few times to reset the wireless and the airport express so that our wifi devices will work, but after about a week or two, it just stops working. I get timeout errors, and my iPhone and iPad just says "Unable to join the network"; the iMac just keeps asking me to enter a WPA password, I'm entering the correct password, because it worked for a couple of weeks. At this point I have both iMacs hooked up via ethernet.I was wondering if I need a new router, should use the AirPort (purchased in 2006) and Linksys at the same time? The cable modem only has one (1) port for ethernet cable.
i changed my modem router yesterday, did all the settings. all my devises can join my wi-fi but my iphone 5s cant. it recognizes the network, tries to join it, but cant join it.
Turned my iphone on and off two times, Turned my router on and off several times, reset my network setting on the iphone, changed the channel on the router twice, pressed "forget this network" and tried to connect manually.
I have a new iPhone 4 and i am having difficulty joining my wifi at home, at work it connects straight away but at home it won't recognize the airport connection and states could not access cellular data network. I have tried all the usual resetting network connections etc?
I have an AirPort extreme and two AirPort expresses. I have never had any issues. Now, my iPhone 4 and 4s will not connect to wifi. However, my PC and iPad will connect without any issue. I have tried resetting the network, routers, and cable modem. I have also tried resetting the iPhone network settings as indicated in the discussions. I've looked at the airport Utility and and only strange item I notice is that the AirPort Express is broadcasting on the 5GHZ channel, which I understand the iPhones only work at 4GHZ. I'm out of options.
I recently updated to ios 5.1 and can no longer access my home network. It shows up and I am putting in the correct password to join, but I am getting the unable to join network pop up. Last evening I upgraded the firmware on the Cisco router and this morning reset the network settings again on the phone as well as the "all settings" reset. I tried a full restore as well, and still no luck. Also I am now unable to get into iTunes from the phone as well. I know it's not the network due to my iPad as well as my wifes iPhone and her iPad, that have not been upgraded to a new OS, work fine.
I just got a replacement iphone 4s and am having trouble connecting to my home network. When I type in my password it says it cannot connect to the network. Before I got my replacement, my previous 4s was able to connect to the same network.
My iPhone 4s keeps switching between wifi and 3G while I'm on my home network. Also I am not out of range, I'm within 15 feet of the router. Any suggestions would be great. I've done resets on both my device and router, still doing the same thing. I'm curious to know if any else is experiencing the same problem on there 4s's.
My home network using a password. When I come into the house, my iPhone3 used to connect automatically. I had a problem with my network and had to reset it. Now, when my iPhone goes to sleep, I lose the connection to my WiFi and have to re-enter my password.
I can not connect my new iPhone 4S to my home WiFi network, whereas other networks are OK. A possbile explanation - the password contains 26 characters, and I haven't tracked don't how to change that password.
