    Yesterday we received the latest firmware WX5004-CMW520-R2308P07 from HP support.  This morning we applied the update to our controllers.  All Access Points WA2620-AGN have also received the patch and updated themselves.  iOS6 devices (iPad3 and iPhone 4S) now connected. Well done HP!!!! ;o)

    We've updated our WX5004 firmware today. The new software fixes the problem with iPhone 4S and iPad 3 devices on iOS 6 - and does not seem to introduce new problems.

    Thanks to HP for quickly providing this fix.

    Nevertheless, I hope that Apple updates iOS 6 that no "Extended Capabilities" parameter is sent during association, since its purely redundant, as it contains just


    Tag: Extended Capabilities

    Tag Number: Extended Capabilities (127)

    Tag length: 4

    Extended Capabilities: 0x00 (octet 0)

    .... ...0 = 20/40 BSS Coexistence Management Support: Not supported

    ...0 .... = Peer U-APSD Buffer STA Support: Not supported

    ..0. .... = TDLS Peer PSM Support: Not supported

    .0.. .... = TDLS channel switching: Not supported

     

    Yes, but octet 2 is non-zero, indicating the BSS Transition bit in the capabilities field is set, so technically Apple does need to transmit the field to indicate dot11MgmtOptionBSSTransitionActivated is true.

     

    What's unclear is whether they support any of the bits cleared in the third octet (bits 24-31); if they hadn't transmitted that, 802.11n-2009 compliant routers wouldn't choke.

    I upgraded my AT&T iPhone 4S to iOS 6 and immediately got this problem. I keep getting the "Unable to join <my wifi name>".

     

    My router is Netgear WRT624v3, and its firmware (V2.0.26_1.0.1NA) is most recent (published in 2008). I almost tried everything except a factory reset. Still not working.

    Fixed. Take advice from http://forum1.netgear.com/showthread.php?t=79687. Interesting, I have to downgrade router firmware to get it fixed.
