Connecting your iPhone to the Wi-Fi
For a video instruction on how to connect an iPhone to the Wi-Fi, click here.
On your Home screen, tap the Settings icon.
Make sure the Wi-Fi is switched ON then tap your router’s Wi-Fi name. In this example, linksyssmartwifirouter is used.
Enter your router’s wireless security key or Password and tap Join. If the Wi-Fi is unsecured, your iPhone should be able to connect to it automatically after tapping the Wi-Fi name.
NOTE: Your Wi-Fi security key or password is case-sensitive. If you encounter the error message Incorrect password for "linksyssmartwifirouter", tap Dismiss and re-enter your password correctly.
If you are having problems connecting your Apple® devices to your Wi-Fi , try to do any of the following:
If you are connecting to the Wi-Fi with WEP encryption, enter the “$” sign followed by the network key. If you still cannot connect to the Wi-Fi, change your router's security mode to WPA™ or WPA2™ Personal and enter a password that you can easily remember.
Check the AirPort® icon in the upper-left corner of the screen for the signal strength of the connection between your router and your Apple devices.
If you are still unable to connect to the secured Wi-Fi despite entering the correct security key or password, you may try powering your Apple devices OFF then turning them back ON.
You may also try disabling the network security settings first then reconnect your Apple devices to the network. Once you have connected to the Wi-Fi, try setting up your router’s wireless security settings again.
If you encounter the Unable to join the network error message, it could mean that the Wireless MAC Filter feature of your router is enabled, or the DHCP Server is disabled. You need to make sure that the Wireless MAC Filter of your router is disabled and the DHCP Server is enabled to be able to connect to the Wi-Fi. You may also need to check the wireless settings of your router.
