    iPhone 3g wi-fi connection problems
    Hi all,

    I currently own an iPhone 3g, It's out of warrenty and i broke the screen and the headphone flex cable, so I replaced these with care and it worked perfectly afterwards (Im very skilled with stuff like this due to my career)

    The problem im having now is that the Wi-Fi is very poor, the phone's actual signal for ringing/sms is fine, but the Wi-Fi doesn't pick up any networks within the area, I can connect to my router on my home network when im stood right next to the router, but as soon as I take a couple of steps back, the wireless disconnects.

    Any ideas on what the problem could be?

    thanks

    My best guess would be a damaged wifi antenna. Are you 100% all of the connections are secure and firm in place?
