What model wireless router do you have? What firmware version is it on (if it's not one provided to you by your ISP)? What encryption is being used?
That is good information thanks for sharing. I will need to go check my wireless setup.RasputinAXP said:Side note: WPA should be TKIP and WPA2 should be AES. WPA2 and TKIP+AES = WPA1.5 and is less secure.
What's that you or a neighbor recently got a new wireless device...a cordless phone or wireless outdoor thermometer?davemayo said:I've read online that some Apple devices have had trouble connecting to Wifi after the iOS 5 update.
I'm definitely in that group. We have multiple iOS devices in our house, as well as a Kindle Fire. All of the portable devices will not hold an internet connection through WiFi. Sometimes they show that they are connected to the wireless access point, but there no internet connection. Other times, they show no IP address. They worked fine before I upgraded them to iOS 5.
I have one computer wired to the router and it works fine. I have a laptop that uses the wireless access point and it works fine. It is the portable devices (iPhone, iPad, etc.) that have the problem.
Any of you tech geniuses heard of this issue? Any known solutions?
That and turn off wireless protected setup if it's not Linksys. That makes it easy to get into a wpa2 network."Madflava" said:Wireless is an odd thing. All of the different protocols are supposed to be standatd but each chipset manufacturer has their own quirks. Apple and Dell are the worst it seems. Id recommend trying a different level of encryption and see if that helps. Sometimes we have to do that at some of the sites we support if someone cant connect with something when we deploy. Just dont go back to WEP if youre paranoid of someone hacking your wifi.
