iphone 5 wifi issues


I have wifi turned on, and it says connected to wifi network with the checkmark beside it. But it still says LTE in my status bar. Why is this happening? I'm using iphone5

Maybe a weak wifi connection? Also are you using public wifi? If so open your browser and connect from there.
No it's at home. My laptop runs fine off of the wifi.

I would just turn the LTE off while connected to wifi then if you're worried about your phone using data. As for the LTE showing in the status bar possibly because lte is faster than your wifi so the phone is using the lte instead. Other than that I have no idea.

Yea I guess I'll give that a shot. Hopefully it resolves itself. My data shot up 600 mb in one night because I was on Netflix and I guess the wifi never came on. Getting charged an extra 10$ on this sucks.

Try resetting your router by unplugging it for about a minute and then turning it on again. I've had to do that every once in a while.
