I have experienced problems with my wifi router loosing connection each time I try to stream a video clip on any of my apple devices since I upgraded them to iOS 6. The router must be manually restarted to reconnect to Internet again. There is no problem to watch video on any of my computers in the same network. Anyone who has a solution to to this problem? My devices are iPhone 4, 4S and iPad 2 wifi/3G. The router is a D-Link DIR 635 configured for 802.11n only and no QoS.

Grateful for any tips...

iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G, iOS 6.0.1, IPhone 4S

    Look for a firmware update for your D-link 635 router. If you can't find one that solves your problem then replace your old D-Link router with a new router.

    Thanks for your advice, but the problem started when I upgraded my apple devices. The router is updated with the latest firmware and works like clockwork (as it also did with iOS 5). Obviously something has been changed in the video streaming of iOS 6 that affects the router traffic. I read somewhere that there is a iOS 6.0.2 version, addressing a wifi problem but that version seems to be released for iPhone 5 and iPad Mini only. Anyone who knows what that problem was?
