If it were me, I'd start getting the device working at home. You can control your home environment. At public hotspots you have a lot of clients contending for bandwidth and a lot of things are out of your control. Here are some tips to get it working on your home network....
if you can get it working at home, then you will know it's not a device issue...

Thanks mate I actually did start at home at first I thought it was my router so I got it replaced and then it kept doing it finally I whent out and Tried hotspots like at school and Starbucks and it just kept kicking me out now I'm concerned if it's my device or iOS 6 bug but I can't seem to find anyone else having the same issue

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.

I experienced the same wifi related problems and the above mentioned actions didn't solve anything. I realised that the iPad needs a strong wifi signal and therefore I upgraded my router to an ASUS RT-N66U. That solved everything.
