Hi,

I've just bought an iPhone and I've got some problems with the wifi at home. I read that some people have problems with connecting to the wifi, but the strange thing is that that isn't my problem.

When I connect to the wifi at my home it connects fine, and stays connected. The problem is that it's really slow. I was connected to the wifi network of a friend, and there it worked fine. I've upgraded the firmware of the router, and tried a bunch of different settings.
I've tried to remove the security (I know have WPA2-PSK AES), I tried changing the wireless from b/g/n mixed to b/g mixed. I did change the Channel Width from 40 mhz to 20 mhz. I tried a different DNS server in my iPhone settings. I checked with iStumbler which channel is the best, and changed it.

I just don't know what to do? Should I go back with my iPhone to the store? I just really bothers me that it works on some other network..

I hope someone can help me!

Ruben

Sounds like the problem I'm having

I am having the same problem.

My wifi works at home when it is the only network programmed into the phone. When I go to work and add the wifi in there, all is good. It works great. But when I come home, my home network is either very, very slow, or it hangs completely as if it losing the signal and then suddenly reconnecting...usually after I go into network settings and click on my home wifi SSID.

For it to work properly at home, I need to reset the network settings to delete my work wifi and then put back in the home wifi info.

I have the same problem. I cant get any Internet acces from my dorm room. However, I also setup my own access point with my mbp, iphone5 works great with shared Internet connection. But not the wifi from the school. My ipad 3 is also running IOS6 but dont have problem with neither of the access points. Apple senior advisor says ipad and iphone are different devices and they act differently :confused:

I'd like to think apple is aware. Theres a shet load of people complaining.

In the beggining i thought it was a problem with the signal width, but i have my router forcing 40Mhz. So idk what the deal is.

Somehow I've got an improvement in connection. Below are some test results. Notice that the speed has a slow start and then raises (most of the times). Sometimes it just stays low.





Maybe it has something to do with the settings I changed? But I thought I did reset everything to what it was..
