- If you haven't already, try disabling encryption and see if your iPhone can connect & maintain its connection. If so, then try changing the passphrase. Also, if you have your wireless router/access point set to 5 GHz, the iPhone (I don't know about the iPhone 5) cannot connect at that frequency even though the iPad and MacBooks can. Also, check your router settings and make sure you have available space in regard to issuing an IP address for your iPhone. For example, if you have the range of your IP set from 192.168.1.100 to 104 and you have a computer, Game console, wireless printer and home theatre attached to your Wi-Fi network, then there is no room for the iPhone to connect. Finally, you can reset your network settings on your iPhone and re-enter the Wi-Fi- network's credentials and see if that help.09-27-2012 12:32 PM

- Thank you, Sean. I appreciate you letting me know. As for the sketchy experience using the 5 GHz frequency, I wonder why that is especially when the iPad can connect to it without a problem? I have an Apple Time Capsule and my MacBook & iPad 2 connect to it using the 5 GHz frequency while all other devices use the 2.4 GHz frequency. Everything works smoothly for me. Have you had the sketchy experience even without encryption at the higher frequency?
I'm thinking there's something causing a communication issue between them, but i know that it's not within my network because all the other components connected to it work fine (including my brothers iPad 3 which i tested just for the hell of it and it was fine too). It's definitely something on the iPhone 5, but whether they rush to fix it or not is of no real concern to me because it DL's and performs on the 2.4Ghz band just fine and is plenty fast on that band too.09-27-2012 04:51 PM
- I tested it with all of the security off of that network, and the performance was not consistent...it was as if the connection speed was fluctuating constantly, and i found that over about an hours time, when i would go from a website to an app to an update, each time something different would happen (slow speed, function pausing, etc). Me and my wife's MBP's connect and have no problem with the 5Ghz band, so i thought maybe there was too much traffic on it (MBP's, one mac mini and an iMac all using it) and so when i shut them all down, it was still not a fluid performance on that band from the iPhone...our iPad 2 has been connected to the 2.4Ghz band and it's be just fine so i just switched the iPhone over to it too like all the other iOS devices we've had for years and it started working like a champ, no issues at all.

- i don't know if mine has the same problems but something is weird. My iphone reconizes my wifi and says it is connected but it is superslow. The only other thing connected during this time is my laptop which isn't really doing anything. Do i need a new modem or is there something i can do to check?? I have Comcast Infinity and my laptop, ps3, and 360 all work good with no problems. Its just my iphone.09-29-2012 07:45 AM
- reset router and fixed it...for now...LOL and just for anyone else who has a problem similiar to mine...netgear router (came with Comcast Infinity high speed internet service). Iphone was connecting to wifi but not able to access internet. reset router (unplug power, wait 30 sec, replug) and it works09-29-2012 08:29 AM
- I got my iPhone 5 on the 21st, and for the first week I was so obsessed with LTE that I didn't even pay attention to the wifi. I did notice that it seemed slow, but at first thought it was a fluke and ignored it. But no, it's hosed.
Just a few feet from the router, with clear line of sight, I can only get a few Mbps at best, far slower than the LTE, usually I can still browse the Internet but sometimes it completely craps out. However, my old iPhone 4S and iPad 2, both also on iOS 6, are working fine, and Comcast gives me 30-35 Mbps on LAN.
I've tried tweaking my NETGEAR router, power-cycling, removing WPA2, changing channels, scanning other networks, etc., to no avail. It's about 2 yeas old and does not have 5 GHz.
On my phone I tried turning wifi off/on, forgetting the network and manually entering the SSID, setting HTTP proxy to "auto", power-cycled, changing DNS, erased all content and settings and setup as a new device from scratch, and still no dice.
Maybe I should just turn off wifi and use my unlimited LTE on AT&T.09-29-2012 04:50 PM

- Do you have anything else using that band? I was having no problems until one of my other components connected, then it went wonky...i have no tried to connect to the 5Ghz band again since then because the 2.4 is working fine and isn't much different as far as speeds go.10-03-2012 11:44 AM
