Iphone3g 2.01 - wlan: unable to join the network "xyz" with netgear dg834n

i m not able to connect to my netgear dg834n with my new iphone.
every time i´m trying it i get this error:
unable to join the network "xyz"
tests i did:
- restart of iphone
- reboot of iphone
- switching of security (and mac address control) on netgear
- tryout of all wlan security combinations on netgear
- turned netgear off and tried again
- dhcp and manal settings on iphone for tcp/ip (netgear has dhcp enabled)
i m using the newest available firmware for dg834n
any help ?

Add me to the list. . .and it happened right after the upgrade to 4.2.1. . .
Coincidence or just just a factor of wear and tear. I've tried 3 calls to Apple and they say the phone needs to be replaced.
A bunch of youTube videos watched and instructions followed to no avail.
It seems that the wireless portion of the circuit board connection is prone to cracking in the iPhone. I'm finding references to this gremlin dating all the way back to 2008. I'm wondering if there is a connection with high swings in temperature of surroundings. One clue to whether cracking exists on Circuit board connections is to pop your phone into a freezer for about 10 minutes and see if this permanently or temporarily allows the phone to be able to connect. . .
The only successful fix I've seen is reflowing the Circuit board by putting it in the oven but that takes a couple of shots of good vodka before seriously trying that. . .There are plenty of Google links on both the preparation and the fix. . .8^]

  • New iPod Unable to join the network after inputting password

    Got my iPod this am..
    looked too good to touch no pun intended.
    I went through the instructions, interrupted with an offer to update_, which I did.
    I then saw that the iPod was off line and went to set up the connection.
    I do have a Time Capsule but I just use it as an external drive, I use Ethernet connections between it my Netopia router/modem which provides my Wi Fi for another computer.
    I have a WPA-PSK security on the Netopia.
    My Wi Fi shows up on available networks, I am asked for my password but then I get a message "Unable to join the network"
    I must admit that my password is long (and a bit racy) my fingers a bit big, but I know that I have got it right on at least a few occasions.
    I have tried entering the details on "Other network" with the same result.
    Could my WPA-PSK be a problem?
    I would be most grateful for any suggestions.
    Various forms of this problem have appeared on this forum, but I think mine is a bit different.
    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    Went through that pretty well.
    Finally solved it in 2 steps.
    1. reset my modem/router to factory settings.
    Odd situation, wireless settings, but dependent on ethernet connection.
    2. read a post from Hong Kong re strange network settings.
    On his advice, into network, changed location from Automatic to one of my choosing.
    Bingo! everything came good.
    Totally wireless connection. iPod jumped to it. Isn't it great when everything comes together?
    I still wonder why it didn't take the signal from the WiFi part of my Modem/Router?
    Probably just as well as it sorted my Time Capsule connections out, probably for the first time since I bought one back in early 2008, and its recent replacement when it joined the epidemic of sudden death recently.

  • I bought a used ipod that I'm trying to set it up and it isn't letting me join my home wi-fi network. So I turn it on and I pick language, then country, then my wi-fi network. When I put in my password it says  -Unable to join the Network.  please help!!!

So I turn it on and I pick language, then country , then my wi-fi network.  When I put in my password is says - unable to join the network.  I have 4 other Apple products that I have that are working fine.  Please help

    Badunit you said "Continue setting up without the network. You can skip past it, right?"
    It sounds like he is setting up the iPod via wif. You can't continue. What yo can do is reset the iPod
    - Reset the iOS device.
    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Then start the setup over again but this time connect the iPod to a computer and set up via iTunes. Then he can troubleshoot the connection proboem.

  • When I try to connect to the wi-fi net work at my work place on my new iPad 3  I get a message, "unable to join the network". I have verified the password, so I know it is correct. I know the wi-fi works, because I can connect at home.

    When I try to connect to the wi-fi net work at my work place on my new iPad 3  I get a message, "unable to join the network". I have verified the password, so I know it is correct. I know the wi-fi works, because I can connect at home. I have already tried the following:
    turn wi-fi off and on again
    did a hard restart of my iPad
    reset network connections back to factory settings
    verified wi-fi is working as my computer accesses internet without issue.
    verified that my software is up to date.
    Does anyone have more suggestions?

    Couple of suggestions.
    First, many companies have a gateway on their networks that block non approved devices.  I work in such a place.  You might check with an IT guy , and see if they have a block in place.
    Second, the message you are getting means that you have not negotiated the security settings.  So either the password is wrong ( case sensitive), or, in some cases, they want a network key as opposed to your normal password.
    Again, if you can find one, talk to an IT guy and see if he has some suggestions.

  • IPhone 5 wi-fi "unable to join the network"

    My new iPhone 5 is my first iPhone and I've had it about a week.  I'm still in the process of setting it up but cannot connect to my home (secured) wi-fi.  I've been reading other Apple forums and Google suggestions and it appears this is a known Apple issue?  My phone came with iOS 6 installed so I have no update available.  I've turned off my router and shut off my phone, rebooting both but I still get an error message when entering our wi-fi password:  "unable to join the network".  I've turned off cellular and re-tried wi-fi to no avail.  I am NOT impressed with my first Apple product.  What a hassle.  Does anyone have any other suggestions to try or am I stuck waiting months for an Apple fix?

    There are a couple of things that you can try. First, try disabling the security on your wifi network and see if the phone will connect. Check the type of security you are using. Some have reported the iPhone reacts differently to some wifi security. Check to see if there is a firmware update to the router. This is usually the biggest culprit of the bunch. Once routers have been updated and restarted, troubles disappear.

  • I had no problem connecting to my network and now all of a sudden I can't connect.  Instead of prompting me for a password it comes back and says unable to join the network ("name") and then the option is Dismiss.  Anyone else have that problem?

  • Unable to Join the network ...

    I've seen similar posts with the same title but none of these solutions work for me. The problem is that I can not connect to my home Wi-Fi network. Following are the details:
    - I have a new iPod Touch with OS 2.2.1
    - My wireless router is an Airport Extreme running 7.4.2
    - My wireless security is WPA2 Personal
    - I have no problem connecting other devices such as Mac laptops and desktops so I know the correct password and the usual settings
    - I have also been able to connect my Touch to another wireless network with WPA2 security! This leaves me to believe there must be some incompatible setting on my Airport Extreme.
    - I have gone through the various trouble-shooting steps on Apple's support site, to no avail. I have reset both the Touch and the Airport many times
    - The Touch can see my network but when I enter the (correct) password I get the error "Unable to Join the Network ..."
    Any help would be appreciated! I can certainly take my Touch to my local genius bar, but that won't help if the problem is with my Apple wireless router.

    If you can see your network, then you are at least not making the same mistake as many AE users - leaving the router broadcasting in N mode only.
    Are you using anything like MAC address filtering on your network? Is DHCP on? The easiest thing you can try is a) reset the touch network settings; b) log back into your network using Settings > WiFi > Other network and re-entering your network name (case sensitive), security, and password (also case sensitive).
    Try that and let us know what happens.

    Try power-cycling your wireless router (unplg for 30 seconds, plug back in).  Here's a longer list of troubleshooting steps: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1398.

  • I have a new iPad 2 which will not connect to my wi fi despite a new router being installed. When I tap my network name (which is with TalkTalk) the message comes up "unable to join the network TalkTalk etc...)

    I have a new Apple iPad2 which will not connect to my wi fi despite a new router.  When I tap the correct address it comes up with the message "Unable to join the network TalkTalketc... It does connect in other peoples' houses . Am I right in thinking that the trouble is with TalkTalk?

    Some things to try first:
    1. Turn Off your iPad. Then turn Off (disconnect power cord for 30 seconds or longer) the wireless router & then back On. Now boot your iPad. Hopefully it will see the WiFi.
    2. Go to Settings>Wi-Fi and turn Off. Then while at Settings>Wi-Fi, turn back On and chose a Network.
    3. Change the channel on your wireless router (Auto or Channel 6 is best). Instructions at http://macintoshhowto.com/advanced/how-to-get-a-good-range-on-your-wireless-netw ork.html
    4. Go into your router security settings and change from WEP to WPA with AES.
    5.  Renew IP Address: (especially if you are droping internet connection)
        •    Launch Settings app
        •    Tap on Wi-Fi
        •    Tap on the blue arrow of the Wi-Fi network that you connect to from the list
        •    In the window that opens, tap on the Renew Lease button

  • 'unable to join the network...' wifi network error ! please help, 'unable to join the network...' wifi network error ! please help

    im on pay as you go.. still trying to set up wifi to my home network.. im putting in the password (sky broadband) and i keep getting the message
    Unable to join the network...
    driving me crazy now - please help !

    Other possibilities:
    Your router firmware is out of date. Check the manufacturer's website for an update
    You have MAC (Media Access Control) filtering enabled on the router, that restricts access to "known" devices and the new iPhone is not on the table of known devices
    Your router has a setting limiting the number of simultaneous allowed devices
    Your routers SSID ("name") is still the default (e.g., LINKSYS, DLINK, NETGEAR, etc). Your phone has encountered other routers with the same name as you have traveled, and the phone is confused as to which router is the real one. If your router's name is still the default you should change it.

  • How to solve the issue of 'Unable to join the network' on my iPhone 5!?

    I used to connect to a wifi network on my iPhone 5 and suddenly i could not connect anymore to this network. My phone kept showing 'Unable to join the network'.

  • HT5569 When I attempt to choose the wi fi network I set up my iPhone message says "unable to join the network."  It's my network!

    Recently, my iphone 4s lost connection with the wifi network I set up on my imac desktop.  The message I receive is "unable to join the network..."
    Can anyone offer a solution to this problem?  Thanks!

    Oh, so the problem has nothing at all to do with the iPhone ... it is that you cannot remember the network password!  No wonder the iPhone cannot join the network.
    Why not simply destroy the network and set up a new one with a password you remember?
