    Hi there

    I'm one of those people who have problems with WiFi on my iPhone5. It drops it so often or doesn't connect to it or has a weak connectivity.

    I read that this can be avoided by switching the router to WEP instead WPA but no way i'm gonna do that with WEP being so vulnerable.

    Does anybody know if there's another fix for this or do we really have to wait for Apple to hopefully fix it in a next iOS update?

    Maybe you should return it or get a warranty replacement?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    6.0.1 didnt fix it for me either.
    The only other solution I found was to turn off the iphone 5 and turn it back on.
    A restart seems to fix it and then it connects and pulls data fine.

    This issue is pretty widespread and exchanging the phone for a new one could probably be a 50/50 situation (where i get a new one with same problem) and an annoying hassle too.

    It looks to me like a software/ iOS issue? No?

    I've had to do this too. I switch to LTE. I hope AT&T doesn't throttle me!
