    iPhone 3g - Wifi Suddenly stopped working ?

    Banned
    I was using my iPhone 3g yesterday on wifi at home and it suddendly disconnected and went to 3g. Now when I search for wifi hotspots , sometimes it finds them and connects but then suddenly disconnects and loses it, and sometimes they just don't come up.

    Have tried at various wireless hotspots, have restored phone, reset settings done everything possible on the software side of the phone but still not working?

    Do you think its a hardware fault? Anyone else had this? Just wondering if this sort of thing does happen on the iphones ?

    cheers

    is it all wifi spots? is it jailbroken?

    I had an issue a long long time ago where it wouldnt connect to home wifi - it would find it, but would refuse to pick up a DHCP ip address. A restore fixed it, and it never came back.

    All wifi spots, was jailbroken but has been unjailbroken , full restore etc, same thing,

    Did you have boss prefs installed on it when it was jailbroken because even if you restored it, this will still cause problems with the 3g or wifi

    Nope, and how does boss prefs cause problems with the wifi ? Is there no way to fix it after that ?

    Had this, either rebooted the phone or I updated.

    a restore will have wiped bossprefs so its not that.

    a restore does not completely wipe it, if you have altered the settings in boss preff it will stay like that even after a restore, it happened to me

    No it won't.

    Unless you restore a backup, where there might be some stuff resident (though I'd doubt it).

    Certainly if you restore and setup as a new iPhone, it WILL DEFINITELY WIPE IT!
