WiFi Iphone Issues
Did you ever have problems with your phone or Ipod connecting to your WiFi? It could be working fine, and all of a sudden stop working, and you wonder what you have done. This can happen, and it is very frustrating. You must revert to data, and then the phone won’t backup, and you may start running out of data and pay more fees. What can you possibly do to prevent this from occurring or fixing it when it happens? You must find a way to fix the broken iPhone WiFi settings. The solution involves checking it out step by step in this article. The example uses Windows 7 WiFi Network and iPhone 5.
Does Network Setup Work?
First, you learn so much when you troubleshoot, and a story explains this very well. A user had his computer hacked in a network connection. At around the same time, he updated his iPhone. After these issues. the phone would no longer connect to the wireless network. As one of the troubleshooting steps, he tried to reconnect it by following the Microsoft instructions. At times, Microsoft’s instructions leave more to be desired. He followed the steps many times, until the very last step. It said connected, but the map did not show all the entities. He went back to the iPhone, and lo and behold, the iPhone connected to the network. It proves that sometimes a procedure works, in spite of not being perfect. Therefore, the first step you might take is to ensure you have a setup that works.
WiFi or Wired?
Are iPhone Settings Correct?
If this step failed, check to see if the WiFi recognizes phone or Ipad. Go to settings and WiFi to see if the connection is listed. Then check to make sure your settings show. Click on the three bar icon for your connection until the numbers come up. If the numbers do not show, look for the the words"renew lease" to renew the numbers. If this works, then go a little farther. Go to Safari in the list of programs and click until Safari comes up. Then click Safari until another page comes up. Clear your cookies and cache. Make sure it says third party cookies are accepted. Check to see if you have Popup blocker selected. Then turn phone off and back on.

Check Modem and Routers
Now, go to your computer area and unplug your modem for one minute, then the router for a minute and any extended routers for one minute. Plug them back in, after ensuring you have unplugged them in that order. If that solves the problem, congratulations for your success. Was it easy for you or difficult? Write it down in a special notebook, as you may not remember it next time it happens. Every time you solve a problem, write it down. You think you will remember, but if it does not happen for six months, your brain may have wiped it out.
Check Router Settings for Channel Strength
You can also check your router settings this way. Look up your router number by going to the settings on the phone. Go to settings and WiFi. Click on the connection. When it comes up, click on the bars for your setting. Get the number for the router. Enter it in the address bar on your computer, and click enter. The router settings will come up, and you must log in to change a setting. You may need to change to a stronger channel, as that may help your connection problem.
Frustration sets in when your devices don't work or the network instructions don't make sense. If you read the instructions in the above article, success should be yours. If not, you can reset your iPhone or call/visit the Apple Store, phone provider store or Internet Service Provider where competent personnel will troubleshoot the problem. Resetting the iPhone to original network settings is questionable, as you will lose passwords, and requires a cautious approach. If the network setup remains the issue, you may need further help, as the Microsoft network instructions appear complex, but not impossible. When you have fixed the issue, you may have the ability to fix anything within reason. Troubleshooting can be fun and raise your self esteem every time something works. Your brain will become sharper, and you may live longer with this fired-up engine of your body. Good luck.
