I got my iphone about 2 weeks ago- the first night i got home it connected to my wifi just fine. My friend with an iphone 4s was over that night and connected to my wifi as well. Ever since that night my phone never stays connected to my wifi. I know that it is not a router issue (i have a brand new router set up by a director of IT) and my wifi works fine all the time with my laptop. My phone has not reconnected to my wifi even once since that first night. It tries whenever I'm in my house (in the wifi zone) which of course then just eats at my battery but is never able to. My friend with the 4s is able to connect to my wifi just fine at my place.
I've tried everything this forum has previously mentioned, including resetting my network and phone settings, and toggling those different options. This is my first iphone and I must say I am not impressed so far, and am considering switching back to a droid. Can anyone help me resolve this issue and fast?

Olivers7 - Does the phone connect to other Wifi networks? Have you tried to add your Wifi 'manually' and see if it connects?
If it wont connect to any Wifi, then most likely you have a faulty phone. Connecting things to Wifi should be pretty easy, scan, password, connect. (Otherwise take it to the apple store and see if they can figure something out, don't waist more time if adding it manually does not work.)
Apart from the Wifi issues which I seemed to have fixed by adding it manually.
I have put the settings the same as my Iphone 4. But still have 1 day of standby usage, the battery will be down to 45%, where as my iphone 4 sits here on standby (waiting for it's new prepaid SIM card), because I updated my iphone postpaid to the ipone 5. Iphone 4 sits at 80%

I haven't had the opportunity to connect to any other wifi networks that I am aware of, but if I was near any open ones it did not connect. My wifi at my place is working fine by two other iPhone 4 and 4s users at this very moment. I did also try adding it manually (that was one of the earlier suggestions in this forum too) and it did not work either.
How would apple deal with a faulty phone? I didn't buy my phone from apple and the nearest apple store to me is over an hour or more away, so at this point I'm at a loss for what to do.

Apple would test the phone and if found faulty they would replace it if under warranty.
If you did not buy your phone from apple, then I assume your got if via a mobile phone provider? Contact them.
If you purchased it via means where the warranty will not cover your phone, then I don't know.
I bought mine from my mobile telco provider via contract, (Optus) in Australia. If I had an issue I would take it to the optus store, they would check it there, and if faulty give me a new one, or replacement while the new one is coming.
I also bought the montly insurance on my phone via the telco contract, so it makes it even easier when things get broken or stolen.
It just depends then where and how you got your phone.
You really need to try and connect to another Wifi to determine if the Wifi is broken on your phone.

This is a known Apple OS isssue. I have spoken to support and they are aware of this issue. They say next update will address this. For me its constant log on, dorp off, log on and so it goes

Hey! I just had this problem and got it resolved by doing the following:
To go settings...wifi...click on the blue arrow beside your wifi name. Click on Forget this network.
Then go to settings...general...reset....and click on reset network settings. This will reboot your phone.
Once your phone start up again....go to settings....wifi...and click on your home wifi to reconnect again. This should work like a charm.
Hope this helps!

For some odd reason I fixed it by going to the connection you want and click the blue arrow then turn on HTTP PROXY on Auto. This worked for both my dad and I on the iOS 6 update and he has the 5 and I got the 4s. Thanks

I've just upgraded to 6.0.1, which claims to fix wi-fi issues.
Suffice it to say, it does NOT. I am *extremely* frustrated - this has been a well-documented issue since day one, and I am absolutely appalled that the *same* problem exists even with the new version of iOS.
Any new ideas, anyone? Apart from banging my head against a brick wall, that is?

The solution is well documented in this thread as well. Sign into your network manually by selecting other rather than your network. Enter name of your network. Then what type of security you have on network. Finally enter your password. Problem over. Simple.

I am having the same problem with my new iphone 5. A classic example happened this morning over breakfast at Panera Bread. They have wifi available at the restaurant and my wife's iphone 4 and my iPad3 picked up the wifi signal immediately. However, my cutting edge iphone 5 was not even showing a wi fi signal available at the restaurant! I'm starting to think Apple has ijumped the iShark!
