    I could not wait for iOS 6 to come out as I thought they would fix the bugs that so many people are having.....but no!! :0(

    Things include:

    1. You wifi network settings don't save and therefore you have to type it in each time. You know this is not saved when once entered if you use the arrow next to it the "Forget this Network" button is not present.

    2. You cannot connect at all to a router.

    I upgraded to 5.11 and was fine for a while then one day the above started to happen. Tried several scenarios and have tested on old G wirless networks and has no problems but seems to be N wireless routers I have problems with. I can make it save and connect to one by adding all info manually but another one at work I can't access this way at all.

    What's everybody's comments??

    Having exactly the same problems OP (iPhone 4).

    Strange thing is, 'Forget This Network' was there last night AFTER the IOS6 update as I used it during the 'apple.com' wifi issue last night. Now it's vanished into thin air.

    "It just works" ... No it doesn't.

    Surely we can't be the only ones?

    Weird wifi problem here. Both iPhone 4s and iPad 2 upgraded to iOS6. My network has two AE's to cover my apartment. The iPad doesn't have a problem, I have great wifi reception everywhere.
    But the iPhone doesn't connect to the extended AE. No wifi here. And the AE is working fine, I see it on the iPad and the iMac.
    Last night I did a reset on de AE and configured it again. It seemed to work, I had wifi on the iPhone. But this morning the problem was there again. And another reset didn't work.

    Something is still not working properly.

    If I let my iPhone sleep for a few minutes, I have to re-enter my wifi password on wake otherwise it just stays at 3G.

    If I go in and turn wifi off and back on again, it forgets my password again.

    5.1.1, I miss you...

    I renamed my routers name (SSID) and that's fixed it. 'Forget This Network' is back and it automatically re-connects from sleep without having to input the password every time.

    Looks like the iPhone had a strange glitch with my router and its saved settings.

    I agree, I hate having to go into setting and telling my phone and my ipad to join my network everytime the device goes to sleep. This needs to be fixed asap

    You might check your router/access point and ensure that Wi-Fi MultiMedia (WMM) is enabled. It seems that iOS 6 requires that (WMM) be enabled. :(

    Yes I have tried disabling WMM and then re-enabling with no difference.

    However I found something interesting. I disabled any encryption on my wireless and it still did not connect at all. I then change my SSID from the default "NETGEAR" to say "NETGEAR1" and both encrypted and non encrypted wireless worked. Then removed those networks from my phone and changed the SSID back to "NETGEAR" and neither worked again. I have always had the default SSID from day 1 as most have BT Hubs.
    It is like the file within the iPhone software that stores the wifi info is corrupt. When doing an upgrade etc. this file has old info kept and it does not refresh or update for a particular SSID name.
    Does anyone know the file this is kept in and how to access it???? and either edit or replace.

    What your thoughts?????

    Did you try clearing your cache and internet history? Also reset network settings
