wth the ios 6 update no my wifi keeps disconnecting. i can now utilize wifi any longer it just bounces off and then takes nearly forever to connect to a website without it. or if i turn it off and use the cellular network it works good. i want to use wifi while in my home. i have a good wifi connection for all other devices. please help or suggeset stuff. i have already turned it off and back on, i have done forget this network and retyped in the networks password for wifi and reset the phone. but still nothing works. i had no issues before the ios 5 update now i have issues.


iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1.1

    I have the same issue.  What I've noticed is that when I connect to the network, it pops up one of those wifi authentication windows like I'm connecting from a hotel or something.  But this is connecting to "http://www.apple.com" and the only thing the window says is "SUCCESS".  I can't do anything.  When I hit cancel it disconnects from that network since it thinks I haven't authenticated.

     

    Where I work you can set up wifi accounts for guests, so I did that for myself and that worked because that popped up a real authentication page, but again all signs point back to a TEST page that apple has, so they seem to have left some beta code in here or something.

     

    Haven't tried on my home LAN yet...hope it works!

    I have the same problem - if I watch my phone it keeps switching from wifi to 3g to wifi to 3g, etc.

     

    I have tried many different things, resetting network settings, restarting my phone (4s).  I have decided for now to leave the wifi off, assuming it will drain my battery if it is constantly kicking off my wifi and then searching again.

     

    Looking forward to a solution....

    Same here, folks. Getting that apple.com authentication pop-up with "page not found" when I try to connect to my home wifi.

     

    I can say fairly definitively that this isn't an iOS 6 issue. I've had iOS 6 installed for quite a while (I'm a dev), including the GM for a week. The issue only appeared today.

    I get the "page not found" apple web page too after attempting to connect to wifi. I don't know if I should keep trying and hope apple fixes it or revert back to the last ios.

    Same issue here with both iPhone 4S's in my house.  Wi-fi connects briefly and attemps to login at an apple.com page that cannot be found.

     

    Tried to fix the issue (forget all wirless networks and re-connect; restarting phone) to no avail.

    iPad 3, Windows 7 PC and I use iTunes to sync obviously. Been running iOS 6 for almost a week and it's been fine. I just installed the latest iCloud control panel for windows, synced my iPad, then tried to go back to regular use. Boom, I started getting kicked off my wifi within 30secs of signing on.

     

    Reset my modem, router, etc, no go. Decided to uninstall that iCould control panel, as soon as I signed out, my iPad is back to normal. Very, very weird.

    I haven't tried connecting to the wifi at my job.  Do you all use Airport Extreme routers?

    Linksys wrt310n....I was getting kicked off even when my PC was off, it wasn't until I signed it off of iCloud that the iPad went back to normal operation.
