While there may be nothing wrong with the WiFi internet connection, this particular WiFi network name-- %p%s%s%s%s%n-- can completely disable WiFi on your iPhone forever. As per security researcher Carl Schou, this bug affects both iPhones and iPads.

The moment you select a WiFi connection with the name “%p%s%s%s%s%n”, your iPhone or iPad will stop connecting to WiFi altogether. If you restart your iPhone, after connecting to this WiFi network, even then the problem continues to exist and your iPhone and iPad will lose the ability to connect to any WiFi network.
