    I could not  connect to wifi at my home using my iphone 5. I tried all possibilities like changing the security to none and to WEP but still no success. All my other apple devices like mac air ,iphone 3gs and iphone 4 were able to connect to wifi successfully.. Apple needs to fix this wifi problem asap...

    no luck .... not able to join the network.. I double checked the password by typing it on my other apple device and it works fine on the other device but not on iphone 5. Iphone 5 simply does not connect to wifi at all

    Having the same problem with wifi. Sometimes it gets some data through an other times it just spins. Lte works pretty well so far so that's my alternative for now.

    My iPhone 4 and iPad 2 has the same problem. It connects but works pathetically!

    Yep. My iPhone 5 only connects to my Guest network which is on regular WPA-PSK (TKIP) security. It won't maintain a connection on my regular network which is running at WPA2-PSK (AES). The funny thing is, my wife's iPhone 5 connects to either network without a problem and has blazing fast browsing speed on the internet.

     

    The other scary thing is when I out to the store last night, I was using mine on AT&T LTE and 4G bands. When it got to the 4G bands, it hung up there too and I could not browse the internet. When it has LTE connection, it has no problems. So I really do think that maybe we all received a bad batch of phones from the manufacturing line.

     

    I have an appointment with the Genius Bar today, so hopefully I can get a replacement and that resolves the problem.

    As a temporary fix, have you tried changing your router to WEP security rather than WA/WPA2?  This solution worked for my iPhone 5.

    Is not even the same issue, meaning we don't get an apple website error
