Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Wi-Fi, part of iOS 5: iPhone and iPod touch Essential Training.
Back in the first chapter we looked at the basics of how to connect your iPhone…or iPod touch to a Wi-Fi network and get online.…Now I'd like to cover a couple of important things to know about using…Wi-Fi with your device.…As I mentioned in the first chapter, your device will remember networks you've…previously connected to and automatically reconnect to them.…This is a convenience so you don't have to constantly go through a series of…menus to connect to a network you've already been on.…If the Wi-Fi network has a unique name, this is just fine.…But if you're guilty of leaving your Wi- Fi router's name at its default setting,…for example, you can almost be certain to find multiple Wi-Fi networks with the…name Linksys or even Wireless, your iPhone won't be able to tell the difference…between one Wi-Fi network named Wireless and another and will happily connect to…any router with that name whenever you're within range of one.…
