New to forum Unsure of WIFI User/passwords required to connect.
This is a discussion on New to forum Unsure of WIFI User/passwords required to connect. within the New Members forums, part of the iPhone Forum category; Hi,
Just purchased shiny new iphone 4, very little experience with certain aspects of phones.
Looking for some help/direction in connecting to home wifi.
I'm not exactly sure how to answer, but here are some possibilities: first, un-encrypt your router temporarily and see if the iPhone will connect without any requirements. Mine connects to my un-encrypted router without any requirements (I live far in the country). Now if it connects, then encrypt the router and BROADCAST the SSID. Your iPhone should see the broadcasted router name, then ask for the encryption key. You should then be good to go.
Bottom line: I think that you're being asked for a name and password because your router is not broadcasting a public nname. But I may be wrong......!!
