When I wake it up, WiFi is off but later In a second wifi will turn on. C'mon apple...
Apple employees do not participate on this forum. They are only here to monitor content for abuse of the TOU.
Are you saying that within a second after waking the iPad up, that WiFi turns on again - or you can see the WiFi bars indicating that the iPad sees the WiFi network?
Does the iPad connect to the network after it wakes up - within that one second time frame?
Some things to try first:
1. Turn Off your iPad. Then turn Off (disconnect power cord for 30 seconds or longer) the wireless router & then back On. Now boot your iPad. Hopefully it will see the WiFi.
2. Go to Settings>Wi-Fi and turn Off. Then while at Settings>Wi-Fi, turn back On and chose a Network.
3. Change the channel on your wireless router (Auto or Channel 6 is best). Instructions at http://macintoshhowto.com/advanced/how-to-get-a-good-range-on-your-wireless-netw ork.html
4. Go into your router security settings and change from WEP to WPA with AES.
5. Renew IP Address: (especially if you are droping internet connection)
• Launch Settings app
• Tap on Wi-Fi
• Tap on the blue arrow of the Wi-Fi network that you connect to from the list
• In the window that opens, tap on the Renew Lease button

Unable to Connect After iOS Update - saw this solution on another post.
Note - When troubleshooting wifi connection problems, don't hold your iPad by hand. There have been a few reports that holding the iPad by hand, seems to attenuate the wifi signal.
If any of the above solutions work, please post back what solved your problem. It will help others with the same problem.

There are tons of tips and tricks to fix the wifi issue with iOS 6 and iOS 6.0.1.
I think the cause is double folded
- deletion and subsequent restoration of the ping page (www.apple.com/library/test/success.html) on Apple servers
- a seemingly tighter control over cookies in the new iOS
Consequence is that the iDevice can't match information received from ping page with information stored in cookie when connecting to a wifi network protected by a login page (like in hotels for instance)
Here what worked for me :
- go to Settings > Safari > Clear Cookies and Data ---> in order to delete obsolete ping cookie;
- go to Safari and manually access the ping url (www.apple.com/library/test/success.html) ---> in order to force the iDevice to register a new cookie for the ping page. Be aware that you will need a cellular connectivity to access the internet;
- once you manage to access the ping page on your browser (white page with "success" in really small font size) you should be ready to go and try to connect to a protected wifi network.
Hope this was useful.
Cheers and good luck

The issue is that at home there are not only the iPad with 6.0.1 iOS version - there are notbooks with Windows, Sony home theather connected to wifi, Blackberry, etc.
If we need to apply some procedure to wireless router because of iPad is not fair neither acceptable.
The issue is with iPad - all the other devices connected to the same wireless router works.
So Apple must fix this bug.
I've been having the same problem. I wish I never upgraded to IOS 6.0.1 as this is when all the wifi problems started. Everything is fine a part from the downloads from the App Store and iTunes which run stupidly slow. It's really pathetic with 3G running fast than my 30MB wifi connection. All my other devices, laptop and Xbox which is connected run absolutely fine. The only problem is my iPhone 5 which is really annoying and none of these tips so far have helped.
