The modem firmware thing maybe spot on... I have the wifi Off issue with following config:
Version: 6.0 (10A403)
Modem Firmware: 3.0.04
This problem really ***** and I'm losing faith in Apple and they are losing their edge without acknowledging this problem. Steve Jobs wouldn't have handled this the same way!

I'm in a public place, the macbook pro is connected by wifi, the Iphone (4S IOS 6) can't and home it loses wifi signal half of the time...
With bluetooth, the sound cuts all the time with my headset...
Next time I'll take my time before to update

I have been reading these posts. I have not as yet updated to IOS 6, but I am thinking about it.
I checked the modem firmware of both my ipad 2 and iphone 4s. They are 04.12.01 and 2.0.12 resp.
So lower as the ones mentioned before.
How do I update the modem firmware? Or does the update come along with the update to ios 6?
I like to check this out before I update, I do not want to get the same problems I have been reading about.
I have already enough problems on my iMac after updating from Lion to ML.
Seems like all the Apple updates recently are causing problems. Does not give me much confidence in Apple right now.

My problem has been solved (fingers crossed, forever)
OK, some of you may have already tried this stuff, however, you MUST do this in a specific sequence for it to work.
Turn off your router
Go to your ipad and RESET NETWORK SETTINGS (for dummies like me who don't know how to do it... go to SETTINGS - GENERAL - RESET - RESET NETWORK SETTINGS.)
Once the ipad comes back on. Turn the router on. Go and turn on your wifi again and it will find the right settings.
Well mine did and I can now do everything I could not do since Sunday.

I am simply writing in despair as far as I have the problem with 4S upgraded to iOS6 and Netgear router. Our IT don't want to degrade it; why they should? Everything else was tested - no Wi-Fi connection!
Apple has no choice but PROVIDE OFFICIAL DOWNGRADE TO 5!

JWROBO- Thank you for reposting this. I visited Netgear's site and grudgingly rolled my firmware back to the version you mentioned, and it works now. My iPhone's modem firmware version is 3.0.04, so you all may be on to something as far as the device modem firmware version being part of the problem.
It's ridiculous that I have to downgrade my modem to 5 year old firmware in order for my iPhone 4s (which has worked fine up until ioS 6) to be able to connect to my home network. Hopefuly Apple is paying attention to this thread and will include a fix in 6.0.1 that will make ioS 6 play nice with Netgear routers from this decade.

I would wait. I made the mistake of updating to IOS6 when I got the notice the other day. Big Wifi connection problems with my IPAD 3. I know how to get around the problem now but I have to perform the "get around" everytime I connect to a different network.
I would assume Apple will release a patch soon.

I have an iPhone 5 running iOS 6, the modem firmware version is 1.00.16, and so far I have been able to connect to 2 Wi-Fi routers with no problem. One router is a four-year-old Netgear. The other router is a six-month-old Netgear. I have not been able to find my modem firmware version in the about section of my iPad three. It is not there. I have not updated that iPad to iOS 6 after reading these posts. Just wanted to let people know that a lower modem firmware version as the problem does not apply in my case.

It's not just netgear routers - my DLINK is giving trouble too, with an iPhone 4.
Downgrading and rebooting the entire world's wireless infrastructure is NOT a solution.
I've seen reports on here of people buying new routers in order to work around Apple's failure. I hope they send them the bill.
WE NEED APPLE TO RESPOND NOW. EITHER GIVE US A FIX OR A DOWNGRADE PATH TO 5.1.1.
