    Same  here. Iphone refusing to connect to home or work wi fi after ios6 update.  As a result of the threads on this subject and tech advice over the phone from Apple the following actions have been taken without success.

     

    Restore iphone from new.TWICE !

    Change network settings on router.

    Remove passwords from router.

    Restore old settings and password on router.

    Remove network settings from iPhone.

    Switch on and off various toggles on settings.

     

    My IPad which has not been updated to IOS6 works fine whatever I have done. Therefore this must be IOS6 problem. Where do I get a refund Apple ?

    I can only confirm the problems with WPA2 networks. No problem at all with WEP or unprotected wifi networks. Tried on different routers and networks, alwys the same issue.

    I also I checked. the problem is that it does not work when you have wifi WPA2 security. therefore in some works and another does not.

    WPA2 security if they remove works perfectly

    Something really weird is happening to me. Connected to a WPA2 network and i get very fast speeds from speedtest.net. But everything related to apple( itunes, appstore,podcasts) is very very slow. Last night the stores would not even load. i did a restore with itunes and everything is back now but the more i use it the more is slows down. Please fix this Apple. Its unacceptable.

    Changed my router to (belkin) it's on the sme settings wpa/wpa2 as my other router(d-link) wifi works flawlessly with my belkin router but mot my d-link the only difference is the belkin is a g router and the d-link is g and n.

    So my issue is now solved and I leave my older router connected until any sort of update at which pout ill try and swap back.

    Same problem here in Norway... a brand new ASUS RT-AC66U router with WPA2 and AES, and the iPhone 5 loses it's network connection in a couple of seconds. It can reconnect later, but for a short time before it stops again.

    I'm running my router at WPA-Personal and TKIP now, and then the iPhone 5 has stable network conn.

    But it's sad to use that on the router, when it's limited to 54mbps when using those settings...

    Please advise, Apple!

    Could only get wifi signal when i was standing next to my router if i walked away more than 10 feet it would drop out.

    Had my visit to the Apple store today, Tried telling the lady it was NOT a software isuue, she kept saying it was she did another restore gave it back said it should be fine. I checked and same issue, phone now changed for a new one and all good.

    Same here.... and there's somebody who spent 959 euros!!

    Can't surf the web in any way connected to my AirPort Extreme last model, works great with Telecom Italia Router (the long one nlack and white), works very slow with the Telecom Italia router all white and short (new model).

    First we had problems with the new ipad (no switch between 3G and Wifi networks) now with iPhone 5...

    We are all Apple beta testers!

     

    Very disappointed. Also yesterday I went to pick up my iPhone 5 black, and it was scratched in the top metal part. Swapped with a white one after a big discussion with the TIM employers.

     

    Steve, I miss you a lot!

    Same problem here...

     

    Can't connect to wifi at all...

    First one in my local shop.

     

    They will send the new iphone5, that I paid 690euro back to Apple.

    Weeks without a mobile...

     

    Is this normal?

    Don't think so...

     

    LAST Apple advice ever for me...

     

    grtz

    a loyal apple customer till today!
