Probably the worst upgrade ever from Apple - I thought Mountain Lion was a stretch, but rendering all my mobile devices without network same morning is a genuine disaster.

Fortunately, my iPad 1 is unable to upgrade to iOS 6 - Apple have prevented it. So I didn't have the problem on my iPad

Replaced my older Netgear Access Point with a Netgear WN802T v2 and all works perfectly again. Looks like iOS 6 doesn't like some access points / routers. Could it be because this newer one supports WMM?

I Have a NetGear wndr3400 router. At first after the update I couldn't connect to it, but could with an older Cisco router. I am using WPA2 also.
however, wifi is working great now after power cycling the router, and going into the wifi settings of the phone and 'forgetting' my home network, then choosing it again and entering my network password.
In addition, my wife's 4s never had the same problem as me. She connected just fine, right away.

This seems to be resolved now. I believe the culprit is that when connecting to a WiFi network, the iPad attempts to open a page at apple.com. Apple restored this missing page and that resolved the issue. I think it's a foolish design, what if Apple's servers are unavailable in the future? Why should my iPad's WiFi connectivity be tied to that?

It's not well thought out, I'll agree. Very annoying.

My wireless issue on iOS 6 upgrade is a bit different.... I can connect to my home wireless network.. However, I can't connect to my office wireless network anymore. When using iOS 5.1.1, after connected to office network, Safari will automatically pop-up the authentication page and ask me for username and password. After authenticaiton completed, the internet connection will work. After iOS 6 upgrade, Safai didn't come up and only a pop-up message "Unable to join the network "xxxxx" "displayed.. I have tried to reset all network setting, hard-reset but none of this fix my issue.

I was having this issue. I did a hard reset on my iPad 3 and my wi-fi issues vanished.

The link below, posted online at 8:29 p.m. EST by Digital Spy explains what happened. It also says at the bottom of the article that:
"the issue was fixed at around 8pm Eastern Time (1am Thursday in the UK)"
Are people still having problems with iOS 6 and WiFi connectivity? I would like to upgrade my iPhone 4 and my iPad 3 but refuse to do so if this really is not fixed.
Also, per my lengthy conversation with three different support people at Apple, I was informed this is a bug in the operating system. It should have nothing to do with router configurations, phone settings, etc.

I just got off the phone with Apple again, for the fourth time, at 11:00 p.m. EST.
I was told that the iOS 6 WiFi connectivity problems have been fixed for most users and that the entire issue is expected to be resolved within 24 hours.

Are those people experiencing selective wireless access point connectivity issues still on this thread?
Unfortunately there was widespread wifi issues on iOS devices this evening that was totally unrelated to our issue. We have a thread going here with the same issue, but weren't quite as inundated with apple.com connectivity complaints. I read through this feed until about the 4:00pm time point, and it seems this issue may be focused around Netgear wireless routers, am I correct? It appears some people may be having success by enabling WMM support, but at least in my case, this option is not available.
I am also using a Netgear WGT624v3, which I see was specifically mentioned a few times in here. I was able to connect with 5.1.1 no problem (and multiple other devices with iOS5.1.1, OSX10.7.x, or OSX10.8.x can still connect), but cannot connect with iOS6.0. I do not have this issue at work, but don't know what type of routers they have there.
Hopefully Apple will hear our plea once the background noise of the earlier issue is minimized.
