    Having similar problems after updating to ios6 on my TP-LINK WR340G.

     

    Works fine on my other router.

     

    Can't access facbeook or the app store on iPad3

     

     

    Only app store is unavailable on iPhone 4S - can access facebook but it is extremely slow.

     

    Browsing is also near-standstill. Have had to use Opera browser to surf.

     

    Hopefully apple releases an update soon - I doubt I will buy another ios product after this.

     

    edit: interestingly Twitter works fine on both devices.

    The signal to other iPads or PCs is normal... Except mine's.

     

    It's terrible!

    Same problems here since 'upgrading' to ios6, horribly frustrating and disappointing.

    I have the same problem on 3 apple products at home when I m connected to home wifi. I have an iphone4 an iphone4s and the new ipad. They all disconnect at the same time from the home wifi and after a min recconnect. This started after upgrading all three of them to ios6. I updated all to ios6.0.1 still have the problems on all products. It didnt fix my wifi connection problems..

    Get an update to your router firmware which fixes the problem. If none exists get a new router.

    Updated the iPhone 5 to iOS 6.0.1.  NONE of the issues have been fixed i.e. it STILL cannot post content to Facebook when on wifi and it STILL cannot access the iTunes store or App store when on wifi.

     

    Updating the iPad 3 now, but I don't have much hope.

     

    Apple is ******...

    iOS 6 is turning out to be a right fiasco. Take a look at this monster of a thread which has had 134845 views and 999 replies from users demanding a downgrade from iOS 6 to iOS 5: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4322892?start=0&tstart=0

     

    As you quite rightly said, this is damaging the reputation of Apple.

    Why would I get a new router ? everything else is working perfectly with it. Also before I upgraded to ios6 all the apple products were working fine with it... It's only few months old and a good brand.

    Read my post again. Did you check for updated firmware?

    I am having exactly the same issues. No website I go to that requires a login works if I try to navigate away from the first page after logging in.  My newsstand magazines will not update, and I am unable to log into the app store or iTunes.  Other websites that I don't have to log into are slow. 

     

    I also noticed that my IPAD did not recognize the new IOS 6.0.1.  I had to plug it into a PC and install the fix automatically.

     

    I have no problems with the IPAD at work but at home it is a nightmare.  I have tried all of the suggestions but there is no relief.

     

    Come on Apple.  Let's get something fixed here.

    Same problems on iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad 3 and AppleTV (netflix), and only on my home wifi network.

     

    iPhones works on 3G, and iPad+AppleTv works on other wifi networks.

     

    I actually wnet out and bought 4 different access points/routers (d-link and jensen so far) as I suspected that was the problem. Boy, was I wrong! :-(

     

    It must be something with the wifi tech in iPhone, and if it can be broken by a software update, hopefully it can be fixed by a software update.
