I have bought a new iPhone 5c... It's my first smartphone, so I'm curious and I don't know many things about it. It doesn't seem to work with the wifi from my parents.
I have an iPad (iPad 4) that connects to my parent's WIFI connection and it does so pretty well. However, the connection is somewhat unstable when you are on a different level in the house. I never bought a Repeater, as I'm there not so often. Now, the iPhone doesn't work at all. I even tried to approach the router/wifi station (same thing) phsyically, but even when I stand next to it, the iPhone WIFI connection doesn't work.
Can I try anything? Do I need to update the settings of the router? I never updated its firmware for two years, or so, so that might be a reason. I could try. But other than that? There aren't so many settings on the iPhone.
Or maybe I am mistaken. It's been a while since I integrated the iPad into the network. Do I need fixed IP addresses? I think I have them everywhere in the house and it helped a lot.
