    Hi All.

    So this is probably just my janky router. It's an old, poor, Linksys WRT110. I need to get a new one. With win 7 I found that it did NOT support IPv6. That is, if IPv6 was enabled on any of my windows PC's that would connect via wifi, it would bring down the WHOLE NETWORK.

    Same scenario for my new iPhone 5. My 4s (now my wife's 4s) is and has always been fine. My iPhone 5 however, will bring down the whole network when I try to connect.

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    I've already tried:
    -- Forgetting the network
    -- Hard reset of the wireless router (and reconfigured)
    -- Resetting network settings on my phone.

    The only thing I haven't done is erased my phone and set up as new. I had set up my phone from a backup of my 4s when it was on iOS 6.



    I can get my iPhone to work, sporadically, and it will work for 10 minutes or so, but then the network will go down again for 2 minutes. It will work for 20 minutes then go down for two. If I leave my wifi off on my phone, the network will stay up.

    As soon as I try to connect -- boom. Down she goes.

    Updated router firmware and not a lost packet yet. Time will tell
