    iPhone 3Gs having trouble picking up wifi signal
    This just happened in the last week or so, but my iPhone 3Gs will only get the wifi signal if it's within a few feet of the router, basically right next to it. I know it's not the router because my wife's iPhone and the computers in the house get the signal just fine. I researched this a little and found some people had firmware issues, but this didn't start after an update, just seemed to pop up out of nowhere.
    Wondering if anyone else has had this issue or has any ideas on how to help it.
    TIA for the help.

    OK, I went to Settings>General>Network, but I don't see an option to reset.

    OK, Figured out how to reset network settings and did, no luck, also reset the phone entirely and synced, again no luck. Think i need a new wifi receiver? Any other ideas?
