For some reason on my iPhone 4 running iOS 6 (it did the same thing on iOS 5) after I connect to my homes wifi after a couple minutes it disconnects. And this is a huge pain because my wifi password is huge. Does anyone know why this is happening? And how to fix it? Please and thank you!

connect from safari, then it'll stick

1. turn off wifi
2. turn on wifi
3. turn on "ask to join networks"
4. open safari and try to browse with no connection
5. when promted, select your network and enter your pw
6. turn off "ask to join networks" (you can leave this on if you like

Devices say "unable to join the network NAME" please HELP!

It seems here there are lot of experienced people... so I copy and paste from Apple Discussions:

The problem I get (I see the network in the available wireless list on the device but I get the message "unable to join the network.. name of the network..") happens with every wireless device (iphone, ipad, nintendo 3DS....).

The only thing I can do to make it work again is to unplug Airport and replug...

Any idea?
I always thought it could be an IP conflict 'cause we have not a regular cable DSL but our main router gets internet from a wireless antenna on the roof. LOL

Another hint is that I noticed this happen more when a device "enters" the Airport area (me or my sister coming home with iphone).

Add some screenshots, You'll excuse if am italian. lol
