Annoying iPhone 4 wifi issue.

Wifi works fine on my mbp, iphone 4 connects to it but doesn't access the internet. I did a complete reset on the iphone 4 twice and it works fine for one day then the next day when i'm back from school it does the same thing. I also connect to the the wifi at school with no issues. I have to do a network reset every time to fix the problem but its back everyday. I'm sure it not the router because i also asked telus about it and they sent me another modem and its the same problem on this one. It was all working fine before the 4.1 update. What should i do?

Every time I've ever had a problem with wifi for my iPod, iPhone, iPad or MacBook (usually at coffee shops with open networks) it's always been the fault of the router.

That doesn't mean your iPhone isn't defective, but try resetting your router to default configuration and see if that helps. Then tweak each setting you need thereafter.

All I know is here at work the router is an old on DLINK DIR-624 2.4GHZ and it on has I think b/g, no "n", and I have problems here using the iphone 4 here on wifi, but never had problem is my 3g. All other routers I have connected to have the "n" and I have no problems with my iphone 4. So I would pony up and get a new router.

My iPhone 4 works well on my Linksys WRT54G 802.11b/g router. (I have 802.11b disabled and only permit 802.11g connections, since I have no b-only devices; I'm not sure if that's significant.)
