    I was just at apple getting a replacement 4S because of an overheating issue.  They were very quick to replace it, but while i was waiting I asked them about the wifi problem.  Of course the "Lead Genius" had not even heard of it!  And then proceeded to try to downplay people posting in here.  Ugh.  It's so annoying.  I hope it's fixed soon for everyone's sake. 

     

    And if they would fix the yahoo connection that would be a help!  I can't load yahoo mail on either my ipad or my iphone right now for some reason.  Gmail is fine.  sighs

    My brother-in-law who is a electronics engineer for Alcatel-Lucent came up with a work around for this issue. It worked perfectly for me.

    From one post. So I hope one of the working configurations below or WEP work for you!

    I can now PROVE that the problem is related to AES encryption.
    Have tested with two routers. A brand new and expensive ASUS RT-AC66U and a cheap DLINK DIR-615.
    I tried with all types of WPA settings, and this is the results:
     
    Works flawlessly with:
    AUTO (WPA or WPA2) - TKIP
    WPA only - TKIP
    WPA2 only - TKIP
     
    The iPhone connects to the network, but stops working after a couple of settings with:
    AUTO (WPA or WPA2) - AES
    WPA only - AES
    WPA only - AES
    AUTO (WPA or WPA2) - TKIP and AES
    WPA only - TKIP and AES
    WPA only - TKIP and AES
     
    100% sure that I'm right about this, and now just curious if this is software- or hardware related.

    Here's my two cents worth on this problem.  I have an iPad2 and iPhone 4S.  And based on the bigger problems that most people have on here, I'm almost ashamed to complain of my little inconvenience.  But anyhoo, after the upgrade a few weeks ago, my iPad2 won't automatically connect to wfi like it did before the update.  I have it set to automatically connect, and have tried every suggestion that has been posted on here and it still won't automatically connect.  True, it's annoying to have to go to Settings and manually connect to wifi when I turn on the iPad but it's just the principle - it was fine before the upgrade and now it won't automatically connect.  I have no issues with my iPhone 4S.  When I come into range of my wifi, it will connect automatically with no issues. Like I said, I've tried everything suggested on this thread and on other message boards but no luck.  Guess I'll just try to wait patiently for another update from Apple.

    That exactly the problem I have . in settings I set ask to join networks to on so at least I do not have to go into settings to connect I can connect with the pop up screen. Like you I have tried all options suggested on this forum  I sure hope apple solve this issue soon as its a pain

    My wifi at work, home works fine with iOS 6. However, when trying to log in to wifi through Starbucks, etc... It will not open the log in page to accept.

    I have the same problem as well. Starbucks is out and I rely heavy on it as we are travelling. Apple tech spent weeks with me trying to fix it and finally offered to send me a new ipad 3. Unfortunately I was in Canada and it would not have Verizon access sooo, they put a note on my account that if go into a apple store when we return to California they will replace it with a new one. I hope there is a software fix before I do that as I will hav to put another protector on my screen and be out the 40 bucks. What a pain.

    Apple Care offered to replace my iPad however the one they offered is a remanufactured defective one cast off by someone else. ABSOLUTELY NO!! I have babied my new iPad and taken such great care, it is in new condition. The ONLY thing wrong with it is this f****u** update.

     

    Don't acccept a replacement of a remanufactured defective iPad. DO NOT SETTLE for less than being made completely whole!

    It does look like a problem with AES encryption, but WPA2 (which is better than WPA) is not designed to run with TKIP.  Now I have to downgrade my wireless security to work around this bug.  Hopefully Apple admits this problem and fix it in the next release.

     

    BTW, I work at ALU as well.

    Bug with AES encryption? I don't think so. I use AES encryption all the time with no problems at all on iOS 6.

     

    By the way WPA2 works with AES and TKIP.

    I had been using WPA2+AES for a long time, and had no trouble until upgraded to iOS6. The problem is that it had trouble connect to wifi while in sleep mode, and it takes more than 30 sec from wake up to connect.  Some people think  its normal, but IT IS NOT!  I used to be able to get FaceTime call and iMessages while my iPad is in sleep mode, but now I miss calls and messages all the time.

     

    And did I say WPA2 don't work with TKIP? WPA2 is designed to work with AES, but TKIP support was added for backward compatibility.  However, it's speed is not optimized and you might as well stick with WPA+TKIP.

    Some way back up this thread someone said that iOS6 works only with IPV6 WiFi protocol and that since many routers are still running IPV4, connection will not be possible.

     

    Has anyone verified this ?

     

    Cheers.

    iOS 6 is definitely IPv4 compatible.

     

    The IPv6 only misconception started becuase of a bogus article written by Robert Holland for the tech blog tabletcrunch.com.
