    Same issue here since I bought my iPhone 5 a month ago. I have 4s and 2 iPads. . Just read some of the recommendations. I removed my leatherette protector and it seemed to increase my wifi signal bars to full.

    If its a software problem, I hope new updates should boost wifi connectivity

    At the suggestion of others on a related thread, I have found that switching to wireless N - 5.0 GHz mode gets my iPhone working again.  Signal strength goes back to "Excellent".  No distance problems, etc.  All other modes still create the problem.  The MAC address filtering and choice of password security do not impact at all.  Of course, I can't stay in that mode because then other devices I have do not work.

    Maybe this issue is your WLAN signal be weaked between your iPhone or iPad, you can try to replace your WLAN or to paste "Perfecting Signals" on your WLAN Box for improve its quality of the WLAN signal.
