** 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.

I wanted to get this info out just as quickly as I could.
Make sure you come back as I write more articles that go deeper into the iOS 6 wifi issues, but for now I want to get this fix out to you so you can implement it and get back online with your iOS 6 iPhone or iPad.
Fix for iOS 6 WiFi Problems on your iPhone and iPad
If you’ve been having problems with WiFi connectivity after updating your iPhone or iPad to iOS 6, or if you’re having problems connecting to WiFi with your new iPhone 5, below is a confirmed fix that has, so far, worked 100% of the time.

I want to quickly thank Brian Young, IT Director at Living Hope Baptist Church in Bowling Green, Kentucky for calling me and explaining what he’s been doing to test, research, and ultimate uncover a fix to iOS 6 wifi connectivity problems.
But for right now, let me get to the fix. Keep checking back here at Tablet Crunch if you are geek and want to learn more about the inner workings of the iOS 6 WiFi connectivity problems, why you were having problems, and the bigger picture behind the fix – I’ll be covering all of that in later articles. But for now… here’s the fix that you can implement to fix your iOS 6 WiFi problems.
1) Update the firmware of your wireless router
If you are having problems connecting to WiFi after upgrading to iOS 6, you MUST update the firmware on your wireless router to an update that has been released within the last 10 months – or basically just the latest firmware update to your wireless router.
2) Reboot your wireless router
Once you’re updated your wireless router to the latest firmware, go ahead and reboot it. Maybe not a necessary step, but it won’t hurt.
3) Reboot your iPhone or iPad
Again, this may not be necessary, but it won’t hurt.
Once you’ve updated your wireless router to the latest firmware, you will be able to connect.
Here’s a quick video I put together as well
