upgraded three iphone 4's and one ipad2 (wifi only) with ios 6 and wifi internet not working.
wifi connects works for 30sec and stops.

WIFI is staying connected just not working looks normal but no internet.

cell data internet works


What i have done so far. and nothing worked

Turn off WIFI and reboot Devce
Trued off WIFI  and Hard Reboot device

Turned off WIFI and Cell Network with Cell Data and Rebooted Device. (cant do this on Ipad 2)

under Reset I did the Reset of Network settings


One common thing is each Device upgrade to IOS 6 via WIFI and not with Itunes.

iPhone 4, iOS 6, internet problems

    CAUTION: Make sure you know your Network password prior to Network resets.


    If you are experiencing this with your Home Network WiFi, as I was, I did the Home Network reset and my 4s is working fine now. What I though was funny was the terminology Apple used... I had to press the "Lease" icon.

    I'm very surprised that Apple didn't think of this, but after reading all of the detailed and thorough documentation of steps already taken, it was very obvious to me what the next step should have been.


    Change your password.  If there's a change in ios6 encryption alogorithm or method of transmission when sending your itunes account information, there may be some "yet to be identified" hiccups with certain passwords. I've seen this before on other applications after a revision.  Either it specifically doesn't like your password because of a unique combination of alpha-numeric characters plus symbols or something else on the back-end that will clear itself up after a password change.


    Let me know if this fixes your issue.. I'll bet it does

    Glad to hear the issue is resolved!

    Also I noticed I was a bit vague with which password I was suggesting be changed, just in case anyone gets confused, it is the iTunes account password I'm refering to.

    Thank you.  I change my password and looks to be working right.

    I am having this same issue, but it effects ANY iDevice on my network running iOS 6. Whenever I run a speed test, download a large file, or watch youtube videos, the internet stops working on the iDeivce but it is still connected to the WIFI. So is the only solution is to tell my friends that come over to change their password as well?
