    Has anyone tried a hard reset of the iphone5 version 6.02 to solve this problem?

    I have tested on an enterprise WLAN network controller on the 2.4 Ghz with 2 iphones 5 both 6.02 and same WLAN chip vendor BC:3B:AF. The good iphone has a signal noise ratio 47dB my iphone the bad one has a snr of 17dB far below whats normal. Now I have done a complete factory reset with no result the WIFI problem is still there. Any suggestions out there??

    Make an appointment at the genius bar and take it in to be replaced. Could be a bad radio, bad antenna or antenna connection, etc. If you've restored it as a new device and you're still having the same problem, odds are good it's a hardware fault.

    I don't seem to have connection issues - just SLOWness. I have confirmed that changing it from WPA2 to WPA will speed it up. Went from 1mb to 17mb. Less secure of course. Apple please fix this issue.

    scratch that - only worked for a few seconds at good speed. Might try WEP to see if that fixes it.

     

    edit - tried just about everything - inlcuding no security and it was still slow <1mb when it should be about 16mb.
