Apple has just released iOS6 and it didn’t take long for people to start reporting that their iPhone and iPads could no longer surf the internet over WiFi. So the common complaint is that after the update the wi-fi can’t stay connected on the device and Safari kicks users to the page below.

How to Fix Your iOS6 Wifi Problem

MacRumors forum user suggest this, which seems to have fixed a few broken iOS 6 wi-fi issues:

Settings>Wi-Fi>(“Your Network”)> [the blue circle arrow icon]

Scroll to bottom of screen and set HTTP Proxy to Auto

Did it work for you? Are you having any other iOS6 issues?

Update:

Twitter user named tylerc found that iOS checks a certain Apple Web page to make sure that Wi-Fi doesn’t require a login. For some reason, that page was down.

The page was soon brought back up, presumably by Apple, thereby restoring Wi-Fi connectivity for iOS 6 and perhaps for other iOS versions.

    Ya it doesn’t work. Most of the times after connecting to wife the weather is updating, the apple site is not working and app store is not displaying the page. It is saying could not connect to the store.

    FINALLY…. I found a fix to get my Ipad2 going after a full night of messing around with it. Like so many other people, I lost my connection right after downloading the IOS6.
    Here’s my fix… go onto your PC that’s connected to your router so you can go into your router settings.
    Usually, you just open up Internet Explorer and go to the IP address 192.168.1.1 to access your router settings.
    I went into “Applications & Gaming” and disabled the WMM. Saved the settings. Then enabled it again and saved the settings once again.

    Had the same issue. Tried EVERYTHING suggested on different forums. Finally went to the Genius bar. They attempted a restore and set up as new phone (which I had tried twice already before) and the Wifi was still greyed out. They then told me it was a hardware issue, not a software issue and asked if I was under warranty. I was since I bought the phone in June, 2012. I told her that I didn’t think it was a coincidence that the “hardware” issue happened right after upgrading to IOS6. They finally agreed to give me a new phone for free.

    I heard that someone with the same problem was told by Apple that there is a bug in the IOS6 software that is causing the Wifi Chip to get damaged. It’s non-fixable. The only solution is a new phone which I think they should do whether under warranty or not!

      Whoa! Interesting!

    I have had success (too early to be unqualified) with the following: go to Settings, General, scroll down to Reset. Click Network Settings. You will need to input Security Password for the network. Prior to this simple procedure, I rebooted the router. Good luck iPhoners!
