iPhone 5 not connecting to wifi

Hi Guys, 

 

For some strange reason every time I try to connect my IPhone 5 to my parents internet (Virgin) the fault with the Internet light starts flashing and won't conect my iPhone to the wifi.

 

Ive had no problems with previous iPhones or connecting my IPhone 5 to my home Internet (sky) any ideas and suggestions will be appreciated

 

Thanks Ross

What security settings are on the Virgin Router?

All I've managed to get out of my brother is WEP as he's out and I don't know how to look at the settings. Sorry

Can you get onto a computer that has access to the wifi?

http://192.168.1.1/

Put that address into your browser should bring up your wifi routers settings. The username and password are probally on a sticker on the actual router itself.

You'll be able to find out security settings in here my friend.

http://192.168.0.1/

Depending on how the set up is the one above might work instead.

If you can't find a password try the standard one

Username: admin password: password

Re: iPhone 5 not connecting to wifi

Virgin typically uses 192.168.0.1.

 

Username and Password should be reset from the default however lets assume these are Admin and Password. However as said, these should be on a sticker or printed metal plate.

 

WEP is the least secure system you can use, I would recommend that this is changed to WPA-PSK (AES).

Re: iPhone 5 not connecting to wifi

Hi guys my MacBook and iPad are connected fine. I was incorrect its the wireless icon that flashes but only when I'm trying to connect my iPhone 5. 

 

I shall look at all your options now and hopefully I can sort it

 

Thanks so far

Re: iPhone 5 not connecting to wifi

Hi Liquid, what do I need to look for/change ?

 

Its a Belkin wireless router and I needed to type http://192.168.2.1/ to bring up the inf, but not sure what to do next.

 

Thanks
