My iPhone detects other wifi networks but doesn't detect mine. Work help desk said that my router does not send a signal for others to join but the iphone must send a signal with the network name asking to join set it to disable encryption.... I don't know how to make the iphone ask to join. I'v put in the network name and tried all the settings WEP etc. but still receive no signal from home wifi that works well in other rooms on laptops.


System Configuration: Windows XP Internet Explorer 6.0

old thread, but still worthwhile...
another solution.
Change "channels" on the wifi hotspot.
Using MacBookPro as hotspot: My iPhone would not connect whereas my iPad would. After much gnarling of teeth, I changed channels in Sharing setup (on MacBookPro) and --- it worked.
@JoeBob, Thanks alot, this happened to me with my MBP, Ipad & Iphone! Changed Channels and Back to Normal, Thought I would say thanks for the tip!!
