Updating with more information:
- I have an iPhone4 and an iPad3. Both worked fine and without any problems prior to iOS6.
- Neither of these devices will now (post-iOS6) connect to my NetGear WGT624v3 router.
- My router has the latest firmware, and is set up in WPA2-PSK [AES] mode. I have not changed these settings. I am not using any special 'range extension' or 'speed increase' features of the router. It is set to bog-standard WPA2 wireless mode with no bells and whistles.
- Range is not an issue. I am getting maximum bars in terms of how the iPad and iPhone detect the router.
- When I try to log onto my wireless network with my iPad3, I receive the message 'Unable to join the network "NetworkName".
- When I try to log into my wireless network with my iPad3 at my school (I am a university fellow), the connexion works just fine. The web authentication page launches, and I can use the wireless network without problems.
- When I try to log into my wireless network with my iPhone4, it appears to work--but only for a moment. It then instantly (within 1 second of connecting) disconnects from wireless and switches to 3G, after which a webpage automatically launches at apple.com entitled "Log In" However, this page does not load, and I get instead a 404 page reading "Hmm, the page you're looking for can't be found", also at apple.com, instead. When I go back into Settings>Wi-Fi, it shows that I am disconnected. Attempting to reconnect replicates the issue.
- I have now performed a full restore of both devices.
- I have also reset the network settings to factory defaults on both devices.
- I have rebooted the router as well.
Nothing has made any difference. Neither device will work, despite working just fine this morning prior to iOS 6.
This is very clearly an iOS 6 issue. The only thing that has changed is my iOS version, and it has effectively kicked both of my Apple devices offline whilst I am at home.

Same here! I get the "Hmm..." Message a few seconds after connecting to a WiFi network, and then loose connection. I live on a university campus where there are over 6 WiFis but the same issue happens with all of them. This is only with the iPad, I am writing from my iPhone iOS6 which is working just fine.

The idea to clear Safari data/cookies doesn't work. Apple seriously what's going on, an Ipad without wifi is bricked. My iphone is updating now, this better not happen with it.

I am having the same issues... here is my setup:
Verizon Fios router MI424WR
SSID broadbast is turned off
WEP2 security (custom phrase)
It sees the SSID for a few, then when I try to connect to the node, it connects, then brings up an "apple page not found"... like the webpages that pop up in hotel for authentication (right from wifi turn on screen) ... the onlything you can do on that screen is hit "cancel" as no other buttons work ..

I have the same issues on my iPhone 4. It connects to the wifi for a second, grabs an IP and then I get a web portal screen. I get the page you're looking for cannot be found and then it shows www.apple.com. I do not have a web portal on my home wireless network. I'm using that same wireless network from this laptop. I've tried to forget the wireless network, reboot the phone, nothing has worked so far.

Having the same problem. My iphone running IOS6 has to go through cisco to log on to the internet at college, was working prior to update but now every time I try to connect I get the "Hmm" message that previous poster have stated. Hopefully this gets worked out quickly.

I had the same issue. On my iPhone 4S I went to settings>wifi. The I clicked the arrow next to my network and selected Forget Network. Then I was able to connect. Hope this helps.
I thought it worked but then went back to that login screen. ****.
