      Connecting my iphone to Sky Broadband

      My iphone finds my router no problem and then asks for my password.

      Didnít know what my password was and phoned Sky customer service and the advised me that it was my network ID on the bottom of my router. Typed that in and it kept saying password incorrect.

      Anyone else had these problems in connecting their iphone to Sky wireless? If so any help is much appreciated

      Thanks

      Make sure you tell the Iphone to capitalise the letters as you tap them in. By default I think it uses lower case but your network key will be in caps so you may need to tap the shift key before each letter.

      also from what i have seen on other forums the iPhone is so utterly useless(its made by apple afterall) that it DOES NOT support WPA encryption only WEP.

      I don't think that is true! It does not support some types of authentication (802.11x), but it does support all the main security modes.

      Please check your facts before posting nonsense.

      I'm not on Sky broadband yet, but my iPhone works quite happily with my Netgear router set up with WPA encryption.

      As an aside, it's also one of the best designed pieces of hardware I've ever had the pleasure of owning.

      Re: Connecting my iphone to Sky Broadband

      hmmm, so what do these posts suggest (from another forum)

      Probably a bit early to be asking this, but is anyone else having trouble connecting an iphone via wifi using WPA-PSK (WPA version)? I've typed in the password more than enough times though, but it isn't having it.


      I have exactly the same issue. No security ...no problems. Turn on WPA/WPA2 and it's no go.

      I can confirm it works with WEP @ 128bit encryption. Better than nothing. I guess apple will eventually fix this (unless it's a problem with the router...unlikely as my Macbook has no issues with WPA2-PSK)
      thats one post out of around a dozen 6 of which relate to netgear routers

      Probably forgetting that an iPhone does not have a caps lock and are trying to enter the code in lower case.

      Had the same problem connecting my itouch until I found the thing about caps lock ie keys show upper case even when you type in lower case. since then it has been connected to my sky router and works fine. What a fantastic piece of kit.

      Yes, I suspect that is the problem.

      Incidentally, it does have a caps lock facility, but for some strange reason it's disabled by default. Enable it in Settings -> General -> Keyboard. You can then use it by double-tapping on the shift key.

      Re: Connecting my iphone to Sky Broadband

      Hi,

      Just wondering if you ever got it sorted? I have the same problem and don't know my password.

      I'm on Mac OSX10.5.4, where would I find the Network ID that is mentioned?

      I can only see IP address, Routes etc in settings, and they're all numbers.

      Thanks!
