Just "unable to join network"
My computer is currently wired, but I can connect wirelessly when I want to. I never have to enter a password XXXXX my laptop, it just automatically connects to the internet.
I went back to my wireless set up to get the password. I assume that's the one?
How can I tell what version of Windows I have? I believe it's a Vista for business.
Step 1: On your iPhone®, go to the Settings menu. Enable the Wi-Fi feature by tapping the arrow and selecting ON.
Step 2: Select the wireless network name or SSID on the list.
NOTE: If you are using a dual-band router and both SSID for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz are showing, choose the Wireless Network Name (SSID) of the 2.4 GHz network of your router.
IMPORTANT: If your router has the Guest access feature enabled and you want to connect to the main network, ensure that you select the SSID of the main network. The guest network will have the suffix –guest.
Step 3: Enter the Security Key or Password of your router and tap the Join button.
QUICK TIP: The check mark beside the wireless network name indicates that your iPhone® has successfully connected to the network.
Testing your network connection
On your iPhone®, launch any available web browsers (i.e. Safari, Opera). If you are able to access the Internet or any other websites, then it means that you are properly connected to the wireless network.
NOTE: If you are having problems connecting your iPhone® to your Linksys wireless network, do the following:
• Ensure to type the password XXXXX the correct case since it is case-sensitive. • If you are connecting to a wireless network with a WEP encryption, enter the “$” sign followed by the network key. If you still cannot connect to the wireless network, change the network encryption to WPA or WPA2 Personal and enter a password XXXXX you can easily remember. For instructions, click here. • You can also check the Airport icon in the upper-left corner of the screen for the strength of the connection between the router and the iPhone®. • If you are still unable to connect to your secured wireless network despite entering the correct passphrase or key, you may try to disable the network security settings first then try connecting your iPhone® to the network. Once you have connected to the wireless network, try setting up your router’s wireless security settings again.
Well, it looks like the only way my I-phone will connect is if the wireless security is off. I tried changing it from WPA - personal to WEP 128 and it won't connect with that lower security, either. Gives a different error message, though. Instead of "unable to connect to network", it says "incorrect password", even tho the password XXXXX XXXXX And at one point I had my I-phone added to the network as another device, but it's gone now.
Hmm. Is it a bad idea to have an unsecured network?
