One possible solution to iPhone Wi-Fi problems
Authored by: The_App_Guru on Sep 28, '12 08:36:13AM

Actually both of you are wrong. It's pretty clear the issue is an IP conflict.....in other words two devices on your network are sharing the same IP address. Therefore, when one device is logged on the other device gets kicked and connects back to cellular. Once you changed the router's settings from "auto" to whatever other channel, the router reboots to make the change. Upon restart the router sees the second device attempting to connect to the wifi connection and adds another IP address for the new device, that the router didn't previously recognize as a new device. Same thing happen to me a while back....a constant issue with iPhones on DHCP connections. Assign a static IP address on both iPhones for your wifi network and you won't have this issue anymore.....

Your welcome!!! 8^D
