    I didn't have this problem before with iOS5. I did a clean install of 6 rather than a upgrade, but now every time I want to connect to my wifi I have to re-type in my password.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Same issue here. Id love to know what can be done.

    Ive done a fresh install, reset my router and then after it didnt work i swapped out my 5. i had an issue with my 4 as well before i upgraded so its def iOS 6. My iPad works fine, but that is bc its wifi only. There must be an issue with cellular/wifi being confused as to which one to use i guess i should say bc its only my phone.

    No problems with IOS6 iPhone 4S and switching to different wi-fi then back to home. Password gets remembered fine.

    I had a similar experience once. If I remember it right, the solution is to disable "Ask to Join Networks." You'll need to enter the password once, but after that the password should be stored and it should automatically join the network whenever it sees it.

    LOTS of threads on this.

    Try this:

    1. Turn off WiFi
    2. Turn on WiFi
    3. Select "Other" - not YOUR network
    4. Manually type in YOUR network name
    5. Select the password type and then enter your password.

    It should remember it from that point on.
