WIFI Issues on 4s
I am having issues with wifi, I lose connectivity to the internet although I am still connected to the wifi network, I have to disconnect and reconnect to regain connectivity to the internet, my wife's iPhone 4 does not have any issues with the same networks I am having issues with. These issues were there before the latest updates and still there after the updates. I thought it was specific to my phone but my sister's 4s has the same issues with the same networks I am having issues with. When the phone sleeps I lose the internet, I have to disconnect from the wifi and reconnect to regain internet access. Also on my parents wifi, I have to put the password every time I connect, my sister's 4s does the same but my wife's 4 is perfectly fine. Does the 4s have known problems with wifi?
I tried resetting the network settings and I did a complete reset on my phone with no luck, any ideas?

WIFI Issues on 4s
I have a 4S and I have never had an issue connecting to and maintaining a connection to a Wi-Fi network. Do you, by chance, have any restrictions set via your router or access point that might disconnect the 4S devices after a period of time? Do you have some sort of battery saving app installed that might auto-disconnect your device for a Wi-Fi network? When you reset your device, did you restore as new or restored from a backup? If you restored from a backup, reset your device again using iTunes and restore it as new.

Re: WIFI Issues on 4s
Have you tried rebooting your router? What type of router are you using?
Also, in regards to the wifi - when the phone sleeps it will go to a 3G connection, that is normal. Now, when you wake up the phone, it usually takes a second or two, and the wifi will automatically reconnect itself. Just to be clear, Is that what your not seeing happen?
