I run an IT department for a college that utilizes a captive portal. It seems that the issue is with the iOS6 update. We require everyone to authenticate via our captive portal to use anything other than e-mail. We allow e-mail to pass without authentication. This is already causing A LOT of problems for me as i have half of our 2000 wi-fi user base using iDevices. With any other iOS version my users could connect to our network and receive e-mail without authentication. Something needs to be done about this....am waiting for Apple to call me.
1 hour later with support to a senior advisor for iOS no solution. All they told me was to look at enterprise deployment guides. The person was not IT knowledgeable and was consistently putting me on hold to "check with a coworker on the issue". Doubt this will get fixed any time soon. Looks like businesses with Captive portal pages are going to have nothing but issues until Apple gets knowledgeable staff to adress this issue....
I managed to fix this issue few minutes ago. There a few steps to maintain it.
1. Settings>>Safari>>"Clear History" also "Clear Cookies and Data"
2. Turn Your Cellular Data Off
Settings>>General>>Cellular>>Cellular Data (OFF)
>>Enable 3G (OFF)
3. To Maintain your Wifi
Settings>>Wi-Fi>>(Your Network Name)>>HTTP Proxy(Auto) + Leave URL empty
I hope that might help you folks!
ps. if you haven't managed to find your network, after step one you might wanna restart your network settings
I'm currently studying overseas in Beijing and I'm having the same problem. Several students here updated their iPads and can no longer access the Internet at our school's campus. The "Auto Login" toggle switch has been removed, so when we select our network, it defaults to Apple's pop-up page rather than allowing us the option to log in using Safari.
This issue isn't getting half the attention that the website bug had, and that's incredibly frustrating. This needs a quick fix.
Looks like the same problem and I'm overseas also, dont have access to the "campus" routers and cant use any of the router reset or changes suggested solutions. Network login page has been 'hijacked' by the apple no connection message.
Totally p###d off - does Apple have any idea how useless a tablet device is without connectivity and how much we rely on them for study, work and maintaining communication with family and friends?
4 days of no connectivity and no statement from Apple is too long.
Pablo thank you for reply,
But the problem is connection not safari.
When i connected to network suddenly a pop-up window of safari appears and connection drops at the same time. I can not choose anything, just happens.
So if i open chrome, there won't be a connection so my log-in information cannot be sent.
I returned to iOS 5.1.1 so i can't try this solution. I'll ask my friend to try.
@bagjaap - This solution will not work for an enterprise environment where you have 2000+ users like i do. I refuse to go around to everyone's ipad or iphone and make these changes and show them how or to push out a configuration profile to all of them. This shows how careless Apple is of the business world when developing their products. They need to revert this "pop-up" page change that they made in iOS6 back to how it functioned in iOS 5.1.1 & earlier. Absolutely terrible work by them!
I upgraded my 4s to iOS 6 and have "spotty" wifi availability within every app on my phone. For instance, iTunes basically came to a hault. Can't preview songs, can't download songs or podcasts. When browsing the internet with Safari, I randomy get locked up or slowed to a crawl. I've tried every fix on the internet and none of them have worked. I never had the auto proxy issue either. 3G data seems to be working fine. But it really ***** not to have my iPhone working as it should be when I'm bored at work! LOL
Really hope this is addressed soon. Don't wanna go back to 5.1.1. It's officially a week now since I upgraded and still no word from the big A.

I have Firmware 5.0 for this device
Also check your IOS Version and (BUILD)
If your Modem Firmware is LESS than the above, then you have the same problem as myself and many others with Wireless Connectivity issues to WAP's
It is my understanding, unless im proven wrong by anyone with my above findings, this can only be fixed by APPLE. I have reported this as a BUG
Please REPLY only to this thread if you're criteria is less than the MODEM FIRMWARE listed
Im checking to see if i can be proven wrong in my findings.
I have performed the below
