    I think youíre confusing subnet with subnet mask. They all use the same subnet mask (255.255.255.0), but they each use a different range of IP addresses. One uses 192.168.0.1/24, another uses 192.168.1.0/24, etc.

    I know the difference. I was involved in networking before the WWW came along, back when DARPA ran the net. Back before HTTP. I posted what I did because you said
    Here's the only thing that has worked for me:

    Configure IP: Manual
    Enter an IP address that I think will work
    Enter a Subnet Mask appropriate for the above IP address
    Enter the router IP
    Configure DNS: Automatic
    I added the emphasis there to show what triggered my comment. When I looked at my iPhone, the default subnet mask was 255.255.0.0, but if they are using a Class C subnet (very highly likely and consistent with the IPs you have posted so far), then the mask should be 255.255.255.0. 255.255.0.0 won't connect because the third byte will be zeroed out at the logical ANDing. Given you used CIDR notation, I gather you know that already. And I assume that by this
    One uses 192.168.0.1/24, another uses 192.168.1.0/24, etc.
    you are saying that they use 192.168.x.y across the shops, with some using 1 for x and others using 0 for x. The defined private range for that private subnet is 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255 or (CIDR 192.168.0.0/16),but usually managed as 192.168.x.0/24. So in one shop the range of addresses would be 192.168.1.2-255 (1 is reserved for the router) and in another it might be 192.168.0.2-255.

    Do you know what model of ZTE wireless router it is? From their website, they have a broad range of devices. Given all that you have done, there must be some setting in the router that is not negotiating with your particular phone. I think it's been asked already, but do you have any security software that the ZTE might be in conflict? I don't know a lot about Chinese routers, but have heard stories about some Chinese equipment not liking anything that looks like privacy protection.

    The router is up on the ceiling so I canít see what model it is.

    Iím not using any extra security software on either my iPhone or iPad.

    My daughter started working at this company about a month ago. During that time she has been assigned to five or six of their shops. She has an iPhone. She has no trouble connecting to the WiFi at any of the shops.

    As I recall, all of the shops use Class C subnets.

    I think itís time to drop this now.

    Well, it seems that at least you can usually connect most times according to your post #23.

    And I assume trying the Wireless Diagnosis didn't help very much, if at all???

    It would be interesting to know what the difference is between your device and your daughters, considering that she is able to connect without any problems. But I guess that's the whole gist of this thread eh???

    Or maybe you're just actually blacklisted somehow, but then you would probably be curious to know why????

    Maybe because others don't go to multiple locations?
