I want to connect my Iphone to my wireless
First of all you will have to configure your router to accept the iPhone. To do this you will need to go in to the router in your browser window and add your new device, it will ask you for your MAC number which can be found under the back cover of your iPhone or in your WIFI settings.
Then you will need to configure your router to either automatically assign an IP Address or use an allocated IP Address and use the same setting on your iPhone. Also, you will need to configure your router to either assign a DNS Server automatically or to use an allocated DNS Server and once again you will need to use the same settings on your iPhone.
