Just activated my iphone and i'm trying to connect to my wi-fi. It shows up that i'm using wi-fi instead of edge, but whenever i attempt to view a website or use youtube it says that it can't connect to the server. Any ideas how to fix this?

I had problems connecting my macbook to my linksys wi-fi. The thing is, cisco systems makes their firmware based on windows. So i had to change my firmware on my linksys in order to connect my macbook wirelessly. I'm pretty sure thats the reason. Try connecting your iphone to a netgear or d-link, or any other router that's not linksys. If it works on those routers, then it's definitely the linksys firmware.

There should be no problem with the stock linksys firmware. I have the WRT545G with the stock firmware and am able to connect my iPhone, iMac, and PB with no problem.

What router model # do you have?
Are you able to connect wireless with any other devices?
Are you sure you router is getting internet from the modem?
Are you getting an IP address with your iPhone?

I've got the WRT54G and I dont have any problems with my iBook, MBP or iPhone on stock firmware.

Once you go Mac, you'll never go back.

Would you mind telling me exactly what you set the DNS to? I'm having same problem you described with the iPhone and same model router.

Thanks,
