So a little bit ago my iPhone 4 verizon. Kicked me off my wifi.

I try to log back in, but it connects, then boots me back to 3g then takes me to "log in" which displays an apple page.

one another forum several people state this just happened to them

Anyone here have issues?

The exact same thing is happing with my new iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular. I'm on KPN, but can't logon my home Wi-Fi network anymore. I told iOS to forget the network and signed in again using the correct password. No effect.

Fixed now. Looks like someone at Apple deleted http://www.apple.com...st/success.html

iOS seems to check for the existence (and content?) of that page before it allows connections.

I was having the same issue as well. After extensive testing it I thought it was the Wireless N option on my router. When I disabled it, everything worked, when it is enabled, did not work.

This is on 1 iPad 1, 1 iPhone 4 (mine) and 1 iPhone 4S (my wife). All 3 devices same issue.

So people are saying it is fixed? If so I will enabled Wireless N again, but when I had it disabled, WiFi on all said devices did work, enabled and it did not.

Fixed now. Looks like someone at Apple deleted http://www.apple.com...st/success.html

iOS seems to check for the existence (and content?) of that page before it allows connections.

If this is true, WTF is that all about? Why does iOS need to check with this page to connect to my Home WiFi?
And why for me did disabling Wireless N appear to fix it?
I think the issue is deeper than just this myself.

I believe due to lazy coding the device attempts to check if it is able to access the internet by loading that web page. Very strange.

That is beyond strange, and me no like. :angry: :laugh:
Looks like it could have just been a HUGE coincidence the page was working again when I disabled Wireless N, but everything is now working with it enabled, so I literally must have tried that right when it all worked again. Here I was thinking I was a good troubleshooter. :/ :laugh:
