Having recently upgraded my iPhone 4 to iOS5 I'm finding that it will not search for alternative Wi-Fi hotspots other than the one I selected when installing iOS5.  There are at least seven Wi-Fi networks in range of my house and it sees none of them and I sat in Starbucks for over an hour this morning with my wife.  She's on an older version of iOS for her iPhone 4 and found the Starbucks net, I'm on iOS5 and couldn't


Looks like yet another Wi-Fi bug, when are we going to get a release of iOS that doesn't have a Wi-Fi bug in it first days out.  Software quality is realy on the floor these days.  That Samsung or HTC is looking oh so inviting right now  :-(

    Same problem for me, my 3GS can't find any WiFi networks. Only when I stand next to the router, my 3GS can find my WiFi network (and I can connect). 2m distance is already a complete WiFi signal drop!

    I have the same issue with my 3gs, on my school we have 3 WiFi networks and i can't find anyone of them but all of my friends that has a iproduct can.

    Same thing when i visit a friend, they have the router in there bedroom so if i'm in there i find it but as soon as i go to the kitchen (it's a little apartment) i lose the signal!

    I never had this issues before iOS 5!
