    I found a solution that has worked on both iPhone 4's I have that have had the same issues, and also including not being able to download updates in the App store.

     

    Go to Settings > WiFi and turn it OFF.

    Next go to General > Cellular > Cellular Data and turn it OFF

    Next go back to Settings > WiFi and turn it ON, (wait a few seconds for it to sync with your network)

    Finally go back to General > Cellular > Cellular Data and turn it ON.

     

    I had the same issues on both my wife's phone, and my own, and it fixed it immediately without changing any proxy settings or reboots, (which I did try on my phone and did not work, but did not try on my wife's phone)

     

    Hope this helps!

    Any solution to the 3rd case?  Can't turn on wifi at all...on/off is greyed out.

    Problems, problems problems!!

     

    iPhone 4, iPad 2 and girlfriends iPhone 3GS after updating to iOS6 all having wifi issues. They will conect to the network and have the wifi bars on the status bar but no internet, data or anything. Both worked fine before update. Thing is they both work fine on my home network, its my work wifi where I'm having issues. Router is Belkin F5D8233. My laptop is connected to the same wifi network and has no problems. The only thing that has changed from when it worked is iOS 6. I've tried everything suggested - hard resetting the router, forgetting network settings, renewing leese, restoring in iTunes, resetting network settings you name it.

     

    Lets just hope either Apple pushes out a fix or someone comes up with a solution!

    I am experiencing the same problems since I've updated my Ipad 3 to iOS6 yesterday. It cannot connect to WiFi anymore. Sometimes I get the indicator bars but no internet connection whatsoever. My Android device has no problems. My router is a Siemens Gigaset SE551. Please provide a solution to this Apple, this is unacceptable.

    I researched this a few hours and did find a solution for the Netgear WGT624v3. It involves downgrading the firmware. Here is where I wrote about my fix:

    I can confirm that downgrading the wireless router firmware has worked for me temprorarily as well.

    I just downgraded our WAG 102 to 2.0.12NA the second newest available and it resolved our issues.

    Does not solve my issue.  On both 4s phones.  I can see all networks.  Open, passworded, etc.

     

    I can not connect to ANY of them.  Tried all work arounds.  Nothing.  It can see them, it wont connect.

     

    Says, 'unable to connect to network'.

     

    Both phones worked flawless before the update!!!

    I restored mine to 5.1.1 and as I knew would happen, WiFi works again.

     

    Both 4s phones on iOS 6 saw networks, but would not connect to ANY of them.  All workarounds tried, etc.  No connection.

     

    Restored, and it works fine.  I will wait until Apple fixes this.  At least acknowledge it Apple.

     

    Here is how you restore it...

    I have the same issue my New iPad season works with my 802.11n and networks (I have two wireless access points one Apple and one Netgear). My iPhone 4S only sees the 802.11g networks. That used to run on my 802.11n network. Until I forgot the network I got the error mentioned in one of the posts trying to connect to the G network.

    I did do a reset all network settings to see if that would fix the problem it did not but I still can see and connect to a G network,but I canot see or connect to N networks. The speed is not as much of a concern since Wi-Fi syncing has never worked well and I had to turn it off, the range is the issue why I perfer 802.11n.

    The issue is obviously an iOS6 problem that needs to be taken care of by Apple.
