    oh man that *****, but you haven't been able to connect at all?!


    I mean, I could at least join the network, its just stalling after a couple of min.


    I've been using the offices wifi with no problem all day, hopefully my home wifi network works when I get home.

    Nope, I can't connect at all.  My data plan in on Day #11 and has already exceeded my limit.  This is the first time in 24 years with AT&T (ever since they were called "Cellular One") that I have EVER done that.  I can't fathom why Apple hasn't publicly admitted there is a REAL PROBLEM with their product!   Up until this, I have NEVER had any problems with Apple products, so this really leaves a sour taste in my mouth when I have to admit I have a brick, formerly an iPhone 5, in my purse.

    This morning I received my replacement (Verizon 64 gb wifi address 98:FE modem firmware 1.00.16) After the restore was done I realized that it was the same wifi address for the first non working iPhone. But I´m happy to tell that it is working like a charm. Web browser snaps and speed test is just fine..

    I upgraded modem firmware. still no result.

  • superjoho Level 1 Level 1

    Happy to say that my replacement iPhone is working like a champ. No stalls so far. Been using it for over an hour. Happy I made the replacement. No regrets.

    did you do a ping test and see if there is any packet loss. you can download ping app from app store. i am using "Free Ping". you can ping to google's

  • SpanishCop Level 1 Level 1

    Sorry but just curious... If you can't connect to any wifi at all, including public ones... Did you ask why you can't get connected to the public Wifi that apple has in every store?  I haven't had any issues with public or unsecured wifi. Only WPA2.


    If you don't even see apples store wifi, I wouldn't have left and asked for the rep to give me one that works.

    I've changes my wireless router to WPA TKIP only and so far it seems to be working well. I will just leave it at that setting till Apple releases a patch or we figure out what the problem is. iPhone certified routers anyone? I'm hoping it's a IOS6 problem since others with earlier iPhones that upgraded to IOS6 are having similar issues.

  • mariano137 Level 1 Level 1

    after ping results are 4 packets transmitted, 4 received and 0 loss

  • superjoho Level 1 Level 1

    Is there anyway to change Airport Express router to WPA TKIP?? I can't find that option on the airport settings.

    +1 on the wifi connection constantly dropping at home.  It's happening on all my iOS 6 devices (iphones, ipads) after the upgrade, so it's definitely an Apple issue to fix in the OS.  Better see a 6.0.1 soon to deal with this!  I am beyond frustrated with the time wasted troubleshooting.

  • Isti98 Level 1 Level 1

    In my router I have changed the settings to WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy). It has solved the problem for the time being.

  • simonshw Level 1 Level 1

    I had a iphone 5 (white 64GB), that has unstable wifi:  disconnect from time to time, slow speed, weak recognition of wifi networks....etc.  All tricks suggested here didnt work (e.g. changing DNS, using TKIP, Auto proxy, resetting the phone, resetting network...etc)


    Went to Apple shop yesterday and they immediately recognised the problem.  I got a replacement phone on the same day.  So far the replacement works perfectly...

  • robmet1015 Level 1 Level 1

    I have the issue with the iPhone 5 with wifi connecting and not connecting.  It goes back and forth between the cell and wifi.  I tried wpa and wpa with both aes and tkip and with 2.4 and 5ghz.  No go.  Had the phone replaced and same issue. 


    Is Apple going to address this or let us wait?  I'd like to get a 3rd phone and/or return the phone before my 30 days return period is up.


    I am a network engineer and deal with wifi all day and every day.  There defintiely seems like a software issue but maybe hardware.  Frustrating

    I went to Apple Store in Ginza yesterday. Eventually was able to swap my iPhone 5. I haven't done extensive testing yet but something tells me that the WIFI issue is still there. I do enterprise installs of development apps - the installs do not even start in some cases when WIFI is on - even if Safari browsing works (darned it will, Safari browsing does not evaluate transfer speeds (like the Genius guy adviced!)). Switching WIFI off and using 3G or LGE - everything works again at respective normal speeds. It's got nothing to do with WIFI encryption. I just tested two phones but my client got a problem too downloading over WIFI with iPhone 5 - I told them to switch WIFI off, and then it worked for them too. I get the feeling that the WIFI problem might actually be a software problem - it probably impacts ALL iPhone 5 (iOS 6...) devices at this point. Now I reckon most people don't download big files as often as I do which means that most people will not notice that their WIFI download speeds are crippled, unless connections are lost - then they will notice too, as I get some of you do.
