Hi
When I do not use my iPhone 6 plus for any length of time and leave it sitting. And go back to use it it will for some reason lose my home network connection. To reconnect I have to power down my iPhone 6 plus and it will pick up my home network again. Can anyone tell me what could be causing this? Thank you

Does it say connected but doesn't use the connection? Because that is an ios8 bug they supposedly fixed in 8.0.2

Are you using WEP encryption on your router?. These phones don't like WEP. I had problems with slow connection and found out about this on some forum. I changed to WPA2 Personal and the problem went away.

I'm having the exact same problem. Just started today. It doesn't show my wifi at all. When I search for networks I can't pick up any at all. After reboot I find 5 networks including mine

My iPhone 6 will "disconnect" from my 5 GHz network and "re-connect" on my 2.4 GHZ network.....!!:confused:
It does this on a random basis....no set pattern.....BUT I don't actually "drop" my Wi-Fi......
I like the 5GHz network because it's generally faster, taking full advantage of the iPhone's 802.11ac technology..
I'm running Comcast's Extreme 150/20 speed tier and an Asus RT-AC68R router.....
