Help with iPhone4 and wifi access please...

Hi, I have an iphone4 and for some reason it will not connect to a certain wifi network. Up until yesterday it has just connected when in the area but now it will not allow mw access. I have quadrouple checked the password and other people are stil connecting as usual. My phone stil connects straight away to my home networ, it just seems to be this one.
Can anyone help please?

Many thanks.

maybe your neighbours blocked you :p.

Try clearing the saved networks. You will have to enter all the passwords of saved networks again but it sometimes works.

1. Tap Settings
2. Tap General
3. Tap Reset
4. Tap Reset Network Settings

It's my work network, lol!

I tried what you said and re entered the password but again the wifi signal comes on then drops off to be replaced by the 'E'.

Had a quick google for a resolution for you and it seems to be a fairly common problem, I have yet to find an answer too. I'll keep looking though.

Well I would suggest checking your iphone software is totally up to date (connect to itunes to check). There are countless posts on the net about this but no one seems to have a solution. You could try resetting all settings on the phone or restoring the phone completely in itunes.

I will go on to itunes when I get home. Thank you very much for your help!

MY wifi is really crap on my Iphone4... My girlfriend has the 3gs and she can always get wifi but I have to be really really close to the router.

have you tried turning it off and on again? :-)

Can others in work connect with their phones?

Thank you all. It is now fixed. I called in a techy friend. The router wasn't 'talking' to my phone, how rude!
