    Have you tried it with your router unlocked? Mine wouldn't connect locked. Only unlocked. I have to leave it unlocked now. Rest assured its the ios 6 not the router.

    Unfortunately, my experience is this can have a lot of causes. See post #4 in this thread for a lot of suggestions.

    Sometimes reset network settings on iPhone/iPad helps, sometime restarting your router helps, sometimes ... You get the idea.

    Reboot both your phone and your router. Also, upgrade to 6.0.2 which corrects a wifi issue.

    I have tried everything imaginable. Reboot the router, restored the phone. Sometimes it logs on but won't hold it. Problems started on my 3GS when ios 6 appeared. Best hope is wait for 6.1. I have no choice but to unlock mine until its resolved.

    In your iPhone, did you try setting HTTP Proxy to Auto? That solved some problems for me.

    I have tried that too. I think older routers aren't supported.

    A solution for this problem is to change the router settings,more exactly to change the encryption key from wpa 2 to wep but you'll get less protection.

    I've tried that also. Wep still won't log on. Only way I can get it too is unlocked.

    Update to this concern. After doing full clear and reboot of my router and dsl modem, the phone now connects to the router locked. I can't explain it.
