I have a 5th Gen Airport Extreme (AE) and an all Mac household.  We have iPhones, iPads and MacBooks.  Ever since I got the Extreme, my iPhone 5 will stop responding on the internet.  It still shows as connected, but nothing on the internet responds.  The immediate solution is to turn wifi on and off on the phone and everything immediately starts working again.


I believe it's started happening on the iPad 3 as well, but it's hard to tell if I'm just resetting it due to paranoia on unresponsive sites.  The AE is set to WPA2 Personal only, and both the 2 & 5ghz radios are set to automatic.  Also it's a/b/g/n (Automatic).


I've tried restarting everything multiple times, reset the AE from scratch, and done "Reset Network Settings" on the phone.  Nothing has been able to fix it permanently.


The irony is that I switched to the AE after a number of cheap wifi routers that didn't keep a signal.  Now I never lose the signal but it refuses to actually show evidence of routing the packets.


Any and all help is much appreciated!

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.4
