** Update 10.29.12 ** I’ve been covering the iOS 6 WiFi problem from day 1 (actually from the first hour iOS 6 was released) – I don’t profess to know everything, but I’ve found (and a lot of the readers that have communicated with me have also found) that more than likely one of the fixes I’ve written about below will resolve your WiFi connectivity issue. If not, then it’s possible your WiFi problem is outside the scope of iOS 6.

** UPDATE 10.11.12 **
Here’s a 100% confirmed fix for iOS 6 WiFi connection problems on your iPhone & iPad (also a video “how to”) >>http://wp.me/p10Eoa-2hA
Check out the 2 step fix that seems to be working for people who are having iOS 6 wifi problems with their iPhone and iPad.
I woke up this morning to a great comment from someone on Tablet Crunch that tried a combination of the fixes I’ve written about regarding iOS 6 wifi problems and they said it worked perfectly.
Below you can see a video I put together right after reading the comment.
Just to recap, for the past week or so I’ve been covering the iOS 6 WiFi problems people have been having with their iPhone & iPad. People who have upgraded to Apple’s latest iOS have been reporting problems with WiFi connectivity, and I’ve been trouble shooting the problem and providing solutions.
This cover even got the attention of CBS Radio in San Francisco (listen below) and they interviewed me about the iOS 6 WiFi problems.

But last night, a reader here at Tablet Crunch said they combined two of the solutions I’ve provided up to this point and that by combining the two, they were able to resolve their WiFi connectivity problems instantly.
So here’s a summary of the two steps this person took to resolve their WiFi problems that were associated with the iOS 6 update on their iPhone & iPad:
Step 1: Reset your wireless router
Now resetting your wireless router can be a different process depending on what type of router you actually have – there are lot’s of wireless routers out there. But it’s usually as simple as finding a small “reset button” > pushing and holding it down > then waiting for all the lights to reset > then releasing the button.
Or you can reset the security settings on your wireless router – some people have reported this would work as well.
Step 2: Reset the network settings on your iPhone or iPad
After resetting your wireless router, the next thing to do is reset the network settings on your iPhone or iPad. Here’s the basics of how to do this, and I cover the steps in the video below as well:
Homescreen of your iPhone or iPad > Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings
After you’ve completed these two steps, and / or watched the video below, let me know in the comments if your WiFi is not working on your iPhone or iPad with iOS 6.
