Well, sounds like it has its own built-in router, from the product page description - I had no idea what it was before.
This site had some possible tools to help:http://www.quickertek.com/products/timecapsuletriband.php
But really, if he's not getting a signal, and it's wireless N, then I'd suggest it's on his iPhone's end, or else something in the middle is blocking/messing-up the signal.
I had a family, about a year ago now, who had trouble getting wireless signal from one end of their house to the other. We installed a Wireless N router, b/c they had an older wireless G. This was an excellennt router - DIR-655 (what I have had at home now for a couple years, myself
). We STILL couldn't get a solid signal between locations.
After some thinking, I went back over, did some looking around at the environment, and requested a change in setup. When they approved, I moved the modem and router to a different location, instantly fixing the problem. The problem? I giant brick-encased oven sat directly in line between the previous bad spot and router. After moving the modem and router, they had full wireless N signal going to both necessary locations.
