Some iPhone 5 users reporting Wi-Fi issues

It seems some of the new Apple iPhone 5 units may be having Wi-Fi issues connecting to WPA secured wireless networks. Starting Friday as users were unboxing and setting up their new iPhones the reports started coming in. The reported issue is that some units will not connect to wireless routers that have WPA security encryption enabled. When you try to connect to a web site the user either gets no connection or a very intermittent connection. The same iPhone will connect if the WPA is turned off and the router is set to open access, this is not a good solution to the problem. Whats interesting is that the units with the WPA problems can connect to other iPhones that are running Hot Spot software or over LTE and 3G with no problems. The issue is not software related either because older iPhone 4 and iPad models that upgraded to iOS6 work fine. Read more
