Kind of the same for me : updated to iOS6 my iPad3 won't connect anymore through my old and faithfull Belkin F5D8533-4 wifi router. Firmware up to date, settings as recommanded by Apple (though anyway no alternative settings regarding any option will work better...). My iMac is doing fine on wifi. The iPad will only allow acces to IPs, but won.t resolve anydomain names through any DNS i could access... Now as I switch back to the wifi on my ISPs box, everything works fine. only it's a lame 811g wifi box, with ridiculous speed and range...
If that's the only issue I'm willing to change my acces point. But it's not clear wether this will help that much in the medium term, nor which access point really is working with iOS6...

I upgraded my iPhone 4 to iOS 6 the day the upgrade went live. The wi-fi was working good until tonight when it just suddenly dropped. When I tried to reconnect, it just keep searching but nothing shows up. My new iPad that is on iOS 6 too is just working fine in the same home wifi. It's really frustrating that I have to rely now on my data on my iphone. Fix it apple! (Please)

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.

You'd be better off starting a new thread specific to your problem rather than tacking it on to a very long thread that won't be read by people who might be able to help.
Have you checked for a firmware update to your Buffalo router (regardless of whether some other devices continue to run with it)?
Buffalo has a firmware page at: http://www.buffalotech.com/support-and-downloads/downloads
There is also a Buffalo wireless forum at: http://forums.buffalotech.com/t5/Wireless/bd-p/0102 Note that queries made to that forum should be detailed descriptions and include the model number and other details of your router.

I dont undrstnad why we are talking about downgrading router firmware. My IT deparment will not do that and I do not blame them. We have the latest firmware and I have tried all this turning off back on, wiping network settings, turning off the proxy and dancing around like an idiot.
We have Netgear WAG102 access points but my netgear router at home connects fine.
My iPad 3 (WIFI Only) Used to connect with no problems but now keeps coming up with "Unable to join network" We also have 2 x iPhone 4s' and these have the same issue. This HAS to be a bug in the iOS and not the routers. When will apple accept this and fix it?
This has been going on to long now.
I now have a nice looking picture frame when I am at work!!

According to reports Netgear introduced a bug in the most recent firmware levels for the WAG102 (2.0.16). Hey, it happens! A previous firmware level (2.0.7) does not have this bug. Netgear has made this older firmware level available to correct this problem. If your IT department chooses to run their access points with incorrect firmware then that shows a lack of concern for their customer (which is you).
Your speculation, "This HAS to be a bug in the iOS and not the routers. When will apple accept this and fix it?" isn't true. Don't look for any solution from Apple for a Netgear foul-up. Pester your IT guys for a solution.
This discussion on the Netgear forums addresses this issue: http://forum1.netgear.com/showthread.php?t=79767

I am on iPhone 5 #2 and am STILL having wifi issues. I spent most of Saturday with the Apple Genius folk (after having NO luck connecting to wifi) and got a replacement phone. Before I backed it up to my previous phone, I simply tried to access wi-fi on known networks around town. Still no connection. Believe me, I HAVE TRIED EACH AND EVERY SUGGESTION that I have read about on multiple forums and nothing has worked.
About to throw my phone out the window, or switch to a Samsung 3.

I've said before that I am no techie, but let's assume that you are correct and that it is a NetGear firmware problem.
Then should not Apple acknowledge the noise on here and elsewhere and state that iOS6.0 is blameless and that the solution lies with NetGear and their users? It would stop, or at least deflect, dissatisfaction away from Apple and give some direction to the various "fix" efforts on here and elsewhere.
Again, if you are correct, then why do so many on here cite problems with routers other than NetGear?

In my opinion this is no router problem. I have iPad 3, 2 x iPhone 4s and problems with wi-fi begins after upgrade to iOS 6.0. I search a lot of forums for solution and there is no one 100% solution for this problem - we must wait for Apple upgrade. But maybe this fix can help somebody (my connection works better after this, especially on iPad):
Wi-Fi Properties --> network's name blue right arrow --> change IP adress to STATIC
Now you must set network settings, this is depending on you network:
adress 192.168.1.100 (format 192.168.X.Y - Y must be outside automatic DHCP server adress range, try high numbers - 255 max, X - check you network)
router 192.168.1.1 (format 192.168.X.1 - check you network)
DNS 192.168.1.1 (same as router)
Proxy HTTP AUTO --> http://hells.pl (this is example, I live iPoland, find proxy server close to you)

Well I finally broke down and downgraded the firmware on our NetGear WG102. Went one version back and now the problems are gone. Obviously, this is not a step I should have had to take, but (for someone with some technical proficiency) it wasn't hard.

I agree you should not have had to do that and it is great that it worked for you in that instance but what do you do when you are somewhere else trying to get an Internet connection. I'm sorry that I upgraded my iPad3 to iOS 6. I am currently traveling and have had issues trying to connect to wifi that is available and am thankful that I am able to use my cellular connection, which I also should not have to do.
This is an issue that Apple needs to address and I hope they do it soon. I understand that the same issue is also occurring on the new iphone5 , so until they get it worked out I will stick with my Blackberry.
