iphone makes my home router crap out
Hopefully I can get some help here. I have a Linksys cable modem/wireless router combo. when my iphone connects to the wireless, all is good for a short time (5-10 minutes), then all of a sudden the router seems to go crazy. The computers on the network then can't even connect and neither does the iphone.
Any ideas what to even check? Not much of a wireless network expert, so I am afraid to mess with too much without advice from you experts. :-)
(by the way, I am a Palm Pre convert!)

That's weird, disconnect your modem and router for about ten minutes, then connect them back, first the modem then the router, In your iphone go to setting- general- reset- reset network setting..... ThAt could help.
I noticed my wifi speed is not the same after 3.0. Before it was a pretty regular 4 -5 Mbps, after 3.0 I get 2.5 at the most...
If this does not help turn off the wifi in your iphone and use your computer for a while to see if the problem can be duplicated....
Hope you figure it out

See if you can change the wireless frequency the router is using. Might be too much intereference. They run on 2.4xxx Ghz meaning it can be like 2.43 2.44 2.411 and so forth. If you can't do it call your ISP and see if they can access it remotely if you have a networking service with them where they manage it for you.
