When you connect to the Internet on your iPhone using a Wi-Fi network instead of the 3G connection, you save battery life and experience faster network speeds. If you are having trouble getting online using a Wi-Fi network, check and adjust the network's advanced settings. Most Wi-Fi networks use the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), which can be enabled through the Settings app.
