Same problem in ios6 on iPAD2 and iPhone 4S. I can connect to unsecured wifi's and my home wifi but I cannot connect to a corporate wifi with a popup web login page. Now it takes me about an hour to try to get a connection working. Half the time the login page fails to popup. Sometimes, It can partially load the login page, but stalls after that with a blank login page. Sometimes, the login page loads but when I cannot type in it. Sometimes it loads, I can type in it, but it stalls and freezes when I hit 'log in'. About once an hour, I might be able to get to the point I can log in - at least until the screen lock kicks in again.
I do not have cell service turned on for this iPad, only Wifi. I've tried resetting all network settings to no avail. Forced reboot, Forget this network, reset all network settings, HTTP Proxy Auto, Auto Join, Don't Auto Join, turn on/off wifi, turn on/off airplane mode, HTTP Proxy off. Nothing is working. Occasionally taking some of these steps gets me logged in but as soon as the screen lock kicks in, I get booted off the network and have to try this all over again.
Piece of #@%$@#. Clearly they didn't bother to test ios6. Maps suck. Passport's a joke. iMatch broke and wiped out all my music and once I got it working (after a full factory reset), you cannot delete songs. And now this. Forgot Apple being a reliable brand. If I had wanted to spend hours and hours and hours getting it to work, I would have stayed on Android!
APPLE WITHOUT WIFI EVERYONE OF YOUR PRODUCTS WILL SUCK. SO FIX THE WIFI CONNECTION PROBLEMS.
No one cares what the product can do when all they are focused on is the slow or stopped wifi connection
I Have iPad 2 iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S. iPhone 5 has the slowest wifi speeds of them all. I am going to send it back. Remember when the lowercase i in iPad and iPhone stood for Internet??
PLEASE DON'T LET THE APPLE HATERS WIN THE ARGEEMENT ANDROID IS A BETTER PRODUCT.
Apple customers have (and will always) expect the best, that's what APPLE always provided.....
After upgrade to iOS 6 on my 3GS (late 2009) from iTune, I can enable WiFi, but I am left with the extremely weak signal issue. It now has extremely weak WiFi signal from areas I used to get very strong signal. I now need to be within 12 inches of my home WiFi access point for the phone to pickup the signal. And the connection drops as soon as I am getting more than 12 inches away.
Same behavior from our WiFi at work -- I can no longer connect on the corporate WiFi from my office space!!
I also went to the Apple store in San Jose, and the phone was not even able to pickup the Apple WiFi signal from the middle of the shop!!! This very same phone was working flawlessly on 5.1.1 before the iOS 6.0 upgrade. I tried all the tricks people said to no available. Nothing works. My phone is useless now because of Apple!! Isn't this a trick to force people changing to newer phone?? Now I am using too much from my 3G plan and it will cost me moneys because of this..
Apple starts to look like a Lemon to me..

I live in Chengdu, China and I also tried all solutions proposed
I have 2 new iPADS; one with ios 5 (no Problems), one with ios 6 Problems, new iTOUCH4 ios 5 (No probems)
I also have 3 NETGEAR JWNR2000 (purchased in China) in office, University and home
the only places the iPAD DOES NOT work in at my office, University and home.
I believe it is a router conflict with new ios 6... I am now looking to try to change router firmware
So far no support form Apple... Purchased Apple equipment last month... maybe a mistake
After upgrading last week, I am unable to connect to wifi on my iphone 4. I can connect occassionally if I stand right beside the wifi access point to pick up anything. This is happening on numerous other wifi sources that once had strong connectivity and no problems with. My macbook pro has no problems whatsoever. Seriously frustrating. Was planning on buying the iphone 5 now I'm reconsidering altogether as this is causing such a major problem. Huge disappointment and massive discredit to Apple.
I bought the iPhone 5 and compared it to my iPhone 4S in terms of Wifi speed. The iPhone 4S was consistently faster. Wifi speed test after wifi speed test the same out come. I don't know how you use your phone but if you're connected to Wi-Fi for most the day I highly recommend the 4S. Cheaper, faster wifi, and battery last longer. 4g is a great way to rack up that phone bill. $
Hi Guys... I found a small pettern, first my iPhone 4s and a few days later my iPhone 4 did the same right after I finished the Update!.... since I have prepaid and not a PLAN... right after I finished all my credit the phone went from 3G to Wireless and since it has been working both ways.... Hope this helps... Im under Telcel from Mexico.
This is NOT fixed and I am getting pretty po'ed as as my data limit has been exceeded on the affected device.
I upgraded an iPhone4, ipad2, itouch4 and iphone 4s to iOS6 all within an hour of each other on Sept 21. The ipad2 was seamless. The iTouch and iPhone 4 would not connect to home wifi initially but I did network restore and voila, fixed instantly. As for the iPhone 4S? NOTHING has worked! I have tried every suggestion that I have seen online - including a full rese and restore and it still will not connect to home or any wifi. The wifi button is greyed out and cannot be activated.
Way to go Apple!
I also have a problem with wifi on my update of IOS6, i am using a iphone 4s and updated to IOS6 but when on wifi I cannot update any of my apps it says needs update but will not load page so can update.. have have to swap over to g3.
This is completely ridiculous. My household is 100% apple including my Airport Extreme. All of my iOS devices are dropping their wifi signal, if they connect at all.
The network is showing up but it never connects to it.
With so many apps requiring a data connection, its completely pointless to have an iPhone with no wifi.
I have tried all of the "fixes" posted on here and am conviced its just sheer luck if one of them works for you as its not an actual fix.
So much for Apple "just working"
RIP Steve Jobs. If anyone ever doubted the impact you had on the individual consumer, they don't now.
For what is worth, I upgraded to IOS 6 and immediately notice the indicated WiFi signal strength has gone way down on my IPad 2 on my home network. Used to get max strength in my loft, now I'm lucky to get 1 bar. If I try to connect from the loft, IPad finds no networks. I need to bring the IPad down to the main floor near the router and it connects with no problem. Although, I still don't get a full signal strength indication, even with the IPad a foot from the router. At least in my case, this appears to be a reception issue...could Apple have screwed up the antenna sensitvity settings......? FYI, I've tried all the techy suggestions posted here...none affect how my IPad is acting.
I have an Ipad 2 3G+WIFI and Iphone 4. Recently, i updated my devices to ios 6 and its being **** since than. My iphone would display connected to WIFI but i cant surf and same with my ipad. Sometimes i can surf on my ipad at the same time iphone will show still loading a webpage for over 5mins. I tried manny tricks and i get connections for a short period. I reseted my network, i have change the WIFI authentication from WPA2 to WPA. I have disabled SSID broadcast. All this work only for a short period. Does anyone face this problem, pls share. I have a Buffalo N-infinity router. My blackberry and laptop is unaffected by this.
