iPhone 3gs will not connect to my 3600HGV

Hello, my iPhone 3gs will not connect to my 3600HGV.

 

However, it will connect to my linksys access point that I have connected to my 3600HGV.

 

Can anything be done ??

So when you select your network 2wirexxx on the iPhone and then it should prompt you for a password and you enter the password it will not connect ?

Yes, that is correct. The error on my iPhone reads ( Unable to join network )

The network is correct as well as the Key (Passcode/ Password)

I have 3 computers connected to this network and it is working properly

Sounds like to me it might actually be a problem with your phone and not the wifi if other devices are able to connect to it just fine.

The only other thing i can think you can try is to do a hard reset on the RG by holding down the reset button for 20 seconds.

You also might want to try doing a full restore on your iPhone and selecting to setup as a new phone and NOT restore from backup

I have done a reset on the phone once already
Is unplugging the RG good enough, or use the reset button

unplugging only reboots the RG once you plug it back it. So while the power is still on the RG hold the reset button for 20 seconds and it will set everything back to the system defaults.

If that doesn't work the only other thing I can think of to suggest it try changing your wireless to use channel 9. That seems to have worked for several people here to get better wireless range.

enable MAC filtering in the RG. manually enter the MAC address of your phone the move it to the allowed list.
