    Hi,

    My office has a wifi signal that is pretty weak where I sit.

    My old iPhone 4 had no trouble picking this up and showing mostly 1 bar of strength, sometimes 2.

    The new iPhone 5 can't seem to pick this up at all.

    Anyone else experiencing something like this?

    Thanks

    I've been using a speck case. The iPhone picks up the wifi better without the case on it. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Any luck with this? My iPhone 5 only gets 1 bar of WiFi while inside my house, while all my other Apple products get full bars. - I'm thinking it might be a hardware issue.

    someone made a video the other day showing how if you cover the entire back part where the camera is, the wifi signal slowly drops. I bet the case is having the same effect. Here is the video.
