    so, I have had problems connecting to wifi with my iPhone 5 anywhere except when sitting near my router since 6.0.2 and I kinda hoped they'll solve it with 6.1, well...
    I can't connect to wifi no more, the mighty "Unable to join network" dialog everywhere
    I tried to reset network setting, but that did not help, will try restore, but I'm not putting any hope there

    That's the problem with your router, my friend has one too, whenever I want to connect to it I can't, well not the first time and it never auto-connects. I had this thing since iOS 4.

    As posted above, it could be your router then.

    You can try a DFU restore to 6.1.

    I'd try a network settings reset before a restore and resetting the router aswell.

    Try a DFU restore to 6.1 first. What brand router are you using?

    These things happen ... the WiFi radio could just be fried. You're under warranty though!

    You can call Apple and see if you can be sent a replacement if the drive is too far.

    That said, if the DFU restore doesn't fix it, can other devices connect to it?

    If they can, then it's likely not the router but your iPhone 5.
