    Nope.

    Tried both b/g only, and n only with my ASUS RT-AC66U router with WPA2/AES.

    Didn't work.

     

    99,9% sure that this is AES related.

    Its is time to Sue Apple ,Guys.

    The issue is not big yet becasue, Some people use their "Unlimited data" plans they still have.And some fortunately in the neighbourhood with router(s)/firmware(s) that are working fine for iphone 5.

     

    Somebody in Apple beter understand this, and do the research and fix.

    This is quite a nightmare. My phone starts 88:53 as well ,but does have the same issue with WPA2. I am reading all of this and wondering what the best course of action is. Do I wait? Looks like I will be headed to the store.

    Sure: 88:53:95 and it did come up as Apple when checked earlier. I made an appointment as I am not confident that it will/can be fixed anytime soon. I apologize as I am working and checking this at the same time. I must have missed that detail.

    C4RLOCO: So what is your first 6 (i only found where you mentioned 4)? I still have found it odd that in would have an intel MAC address. I have never seen a product from Apple with anything but an Apple mac ID.

    I'm back from Apple store, this is my update:

    At the begin Apple refused to replace my iphone, they said it is a software issue that will be fixed inthe next days, anyway they didn't know about the problem and after showing them How my IP5 worked they pick my iphone and tested it for about one hour.

    When they came back they said there was no way to check the mac address of a new boxed iphone so probably I'd had the same problem.

    At the end, after about one hour later and after having talked with 4 more people of the genius bar, they replaced the iphone with one with the same wifi apple module, but IT WORKS!!!!!!!

     

    my working mac address start with: 54:26 manufactured by apple.

     

     

    before I had 98.b4

    Yea I wronte on a thread here or macrumors that I dont think the mac has anything to do with it. As almost every MAC that I saw someone have a problem on, someone else claimed it was fine. Mine is fine at work on WPA2 AES, but wont connect after being away from my home network. (3 different routers!) and a reboot fixes it everytime and I am good till the next day, 25mbit+ speeds etc..

    we can affirm only one thing, Intel modules have no problems, apple modules can have WPA2/AES issue.
