      I'm having the same problem with the same router, except with my iPod Touch (3rd gen). However, it only started when i upgraded the software to iOS 4.

      Have you updated your 3GS to iOS 4? If you havent, I wouldn't reccomend it, as this could be a software issue of some sort.

      I have found that if I use wifi sharing from my mac which is connected to the router via ethernet, the problem stops happening. However, this isn't much of a solution, as I don't like to leave my mac on all the time.

      I'm interested about whether you found a solution to the problem, as this is extremely annoying.

      I have been finding that the wifi speed on my iPhone 4 when on my home network is shocking in comparison to my 3GS on the same network.
      What is the sync speed of your router? If you are not syncing at a reasonably high speed, say 4-5Mb, then your 3g is going to be faster especially if you are in a good reception area.

      Both of what? He is finding that connecting his iPhone 4 through his router is slower than connecting directly with 3g.

      No, he has two iPhones, an iPhone 3GS and an iPhone 4. He is finding that his home wifi is much slower on his new iPhone 4 than it is on his older iPhone 3GS.

      Re: Iphone 4 very slow wifi on sky router netgear dg834gt

      I've just changed over from a 3GS to iPhone 4 and the wifi performance on my Sky DG834G router feels very sluggish.

      Has anyone managed to find a solution to this problem?

      Unfortunately, I dont have a Sky sagem router to swap over and test.

      Cheers

      I solved the problem for myself by reflashing the router's firmware with generic netgear firmware. This guide explains how to do it.

      Re: Iphone 4 very slow wifi on sky router netgear dg834gt

      I have recently got an iphone4 and have the exact same problem of slow speeds on the netgear router :-(
      Only happened since I upgraded from a 3G to the iphone4 handset though.

      In first suspecting the phone was faulty I went to my parents house and they have got Virgin and their brandless 'N' router that is supplied to customers - The wifi connection on that setup is very very fast! Looks like a compatibiliy issue to me.

      Like i said in my last post, you can fix the problem by flashing the router with the standard netgear firmware - there is some kind of compatibility issue with sky's firmware.

      Thanks for your suggestion, but flashing the router is a last resort as it breaks Sky's T&C's.

      I maybe forced to do it though
