Once you actually know how the Internet works, it is a very very easy concept to understand. There are several different ways.

Didn't have a problem on either my iPhone or my iPad after updating both devices and I connected to three different wifi networks each using a different router. Not sure what the common denominator is for people having issues. Perhaps the type of encryption set up? /shrug

I had the same experience with my school WiFI, selecting forget network and then connecting again solved the problem.

I had another 2 hour call with Apple and they still couldn't fix it. I did, finally, get it working on my own but it took 3 hours of messing with my network. To get it to connect, I ended up having to change the SSID and switch my WPA2 authentication from AES to mixed.

To recap, iPad, iPods on iOS 5.1.1 and multiple other devices all connected to my network just fine. iPhone 4 with iOS 5.1.1 connected fine but after upgrade, just showed a spinning circle next to the network name. I think something changed in iOS6 with their WPA2 authentication.

Monday and still no resolution on my iPad.

There is definitely an issue accessing wifi networks which have a homepage with user and password login screen. My iPad continues to bounce on attempting a connection and displays a screen with message that it was unable to connect to apple.com/library. The logical thing one would do at this point is to type in the url for the login page - but thats not possible as the network connection is dropped each time the apple.com message is displayed.

My apartment has group wifi with login screen and I really need my iPad to communicate with my wife and kids as I'm working abroad as I dont have admin rights for company PC and theres no Skype loaded - the iPad has a lower data requirement which means it works better in this poor bandwidth location.

Apple needs to either offer ios 5 availability for rollback or get this fixed fast with a ios 6.01 release. I cant believe the company which prides itself on the best 'customer experience' did not resolve this within 24 hours.

This is not complex to solve.

In settings under wifi select the network that you are connected (ie press on right facing arrow).

Then make sure auto-join is on.

Next time you unlock the phone, it will connect again.

Cheers

At this very moment, I am on an iMac that has no WiFi problems. However, my family has an iPhone 5 that can't find any networks most of the time. An iPad 2 and an iPhone 4S (both updated) can find networks but can't maintain the connections. I think it's safe to say that we have an iOS 6 issue.

I've seen something about switching from WPA2 to WEP to help solve the problem, but I'm not exactly tech-literate enough to figure that out. Anyone understand what this means/know how to do it with a Linksys E-4200 router?

Thanks for any help.

Retain your wifi settings from prior to the update except select auto-join as I posted above.

Happy wifi

Just upgraded from a 3GS to a 5. Can't login to wifi. Neat. It seems every time I try to connect to my wifi router, a login page pops up with http://www.apple.com at the top, and the popup is blank, except for the 404 - not found text in the upper left. Cool. Came to MacRumors for some help . . .

No.

I know everyone is saying it was server side, and fixed by Apple, but I'm getting the exact behavior everyone was getting, on a new device! Anyone? Should I return the blasted thing?

Have you tried to connect while being close to the router? I only have WiFi issues (not reconnecting after sleep) when I am on a spot in my house where the WiFi signal is weak. Closer to the router I have no problems at all.

No, that's not actually the problem. The issue is, my WiFi isn't a typical cable fed wireless router. I'm in an RV park that gets fed WiFi from a service called tengointernet. Like most public WiFi points, it redirects calls to the internet to a login page that simply requires one click to access the web. Works fine for my MBP and my 3GS, but instead of the login page popping up on my 5, a blank white ERROR 404 page pops up with www.apple.com displayed in the popup header. Tried EVERYTHING I could find on the web, no go, gave up.

One of the problems is related to changes Apple made to 802.11n network negotiation code in iOS 6, specifically on 2.4GHz shared with other wi-fi clients on the same frequency.

One way to solve this for iPhone 5 is to connect to a 5GHz 802.11n access point if possible, or a 2.4GHz 802.11g access point.

In several cases I've been able to resolve my own, and others', problems with iOS 6 wi-fi connectivity on various iDevices, by isolating the problematic iDevice from the other wi-fi clients by having it connect to a separate 802.11g or n AP 2.4GHz or by having iPhone connect to 802.11n on 5GHz spectrum.

This behavior seems to possibly jive with what one network tech found regarding Apple's new interpretation of 802.11n standards, as seen in this article: http://www.zdnet.com/a-new-apple-ios...ed-7000005134/

Carlos, I use an ADSL connection (PPPoE) and I reduced my MTU configuration from 1492 to 1400. It solved the problem. Somehow, it seems that iOS6 added something that is making the router to have problems to send the message over the network. Reducing the MTU size solved the problem. Now I will test which is the maximum value acceptable to make it still working.
