a few days ago out of the blue my IPhone 4s stopped being able to find any wifi networks, when I click into the wifi section the choose a network just never updates the egg timer thingy just shows up for ages and never finds any wifi networks, I usually connect to the wifi at the local library yet it just won't find it even tho it has done for months. I have reset network settings but this hasn't helped. I don't want to reset the phone as do not have a pc to set up the phone again with I tunes

Anyone have any idea what the issue is and how I can resolve it ?

Thanks

further to this I've now found that I I turn my phone off and on when I turn it on and while it's searching for a network signal my wifi finds network, as soon as orange connects the wifi disappears and no longer finds anything so thinking its down to my orange network settings ?

Is it newly happen?

Maybe yes..check your router setting. Sometime router work well on PC or Mac but not on mobile devices.

Take a look at this:

- If you are running 802.11n on your router you have to run WPA2/AES.

- If you run WPA or WPA2/TKIP the phone will drop will try to drop back to 802.11b/g per the standard.

- Enabling WEP on 802.11n router basically disables 802.11n as it blocks out all the higher transfer rates on compliant routers.

- Most problems are caused by people who have draft N routers at home that allow combinations of settings that aren't valid under final N spec.

- As router will try to negotiate higher transfer rates that a compliant device will refuse to use under the standard which causes signal drop outs for compliant devices.

- Best settings for 2.4ghz for max compliance is 802.11n, WPA2/AES, 20Mhz channels, WMM Enabled.

- For highest throughput run pure N mode and not B+G+N mode or run G+N mode on your router.

Hope it help or someone will pump more input to assist you soon.

Back up your iPhone through iTunes and try a restore. Don't restore from backup. Just resync all your information after it restores.
