AirPort Symbol Disappears After Loosing Wifi Connection?
...Whenever you lose your wi fi connection? Mine did before, then I went to the Apple store, connected to the store's wi fi service and the problem went away. Huh?

If you notice the same problem (disappearing AirPort symbol whenever wi fi connection drops) post it here, and maybe visit the Apple store.

Also, I wonder if the folks who do not have problems activated or went to an Apple store first? I did not, then the problem went away after I did.

Unable To Switch Wifi To 3G Or 3G To Wifi Network?
I recently bought the iPad 64 wifi + 3G. I face a problem when I want to switch wifi to 3G network or the reverse. I do it through the parameters window. The wifi or 3G indicators do appear but then when I launch safari, no connexion is madfe and the following error message appear : "No cellular data .." What can I do?

Plus I have problem connecting when both wifi and 3G are on.

The ipad should manage this easily. That's key for its use.

32GB Wifi - Lock Button Fell Off
I recently bought a 32GB wifi iPad, only to find when I got home that the lock button fell off. So I returned it for a new one, but before opening it, I saw the prices that iPads were going for on eBay. So I listed it at $800, and was wondering, if I buy a 64 GB+3G, will the 3G work in Canada? Will the Canadian models and the US models operate on the same bands?

No Wifi - Tap On My Network Name
My employer also provides wi-fi login via a portal on the web. I purchased my iPad yesterday and was able to connect with no problems, even if only for a few minutes. Today, I almost lost it... Trying to get this thing to work all day. Needless to say, it was a very unproductive day.I read many posts on this forum and have to say that I feel your pain... Or should I say, I felt it, as I too was locked out of my networkAll day, I have been attempting to connect via the "Apple recommended method": Settings > Wi-Fi > tap on my network name on "Choose a Network" > etc > etc I tried everything, and nothing worked.Until about 10 minutes ago, when I wondered what would happen if I simply pointed the browser to a web page. Somewhere accessible (given the right circumstances). I used (but it could have been or whatever!).

Wifi Network Disconnecting
I have a iPad Wi-Fi connection problem. All the "fixes" seem to point to changing router configuration or changing to a different router. That's an option if its YOUR router...but how about when your traveling as I was over the weekend. When your in your hotel and the Wi-Fi keeps disconnecting...OS

Not Working On 802.1X WiFi Network
My University uses an 802.1X authentication protocol to connect to our wireless network, and for some reason it doesn't seem to work on my iPad. To connect I use the same configuration profile that I use on my iPhone (where it works perfectly).I find it extremely odd that it works on the iPhone and not the iPad. This is making my iPad almost unusable at school, which kinda *** I guess that's what you get for being an early adoptBtw: wel also have an "open" network where you connect and then the login screen pops up (which is where you then input your student login info, and it then goes away) however my iPad always hangs when submitting this information (this doesn't happen on my iPhone).

Upgrading To 3G - Having WIFI Network
Love my wifi, but I may want 3G. Yes, I could have waited, but honestly, even if I waited I likely would have gotten wifi. It was only after using the iPad so much that made me even think about 3G.That said, is Apple letting people pay the difference? Is anyone selling their wifi to get a 3G?

Not Connecting To WiFi Network
I have a MacBook 13", an iPhone 4 and an iPad 64 GB WiFi connected to my wireless network. I am using a LinkSys BEFW1154 version 2 wireless router. I just purchased another iPad 64 GB WiFi/3G.

Switching Between Wifi And 3G Network
So I'm sitting in my house browsing the web on my iPad, wifi signal is at full strength and then out of nowhere a pop up thing that says "connecting" shows up and dims everything else so I can't touch anything else, it only last for about a second. Then my status bar says I'm on 3G, then a second or two later it does it again, and switches back to wifi

It will happen about once every half hour or so, I'll try and get a screen shot next time. Anyone else experiencing this?

Airprint Without Wifi-network?
My Mum is using her Ipad2 through 3g only, she doesn't have any wirless-network at home, as she doesn't have that much internet-traffic and the monthly 5gGB that she gets through 3g is usually enough for her.

Now I wanted to buy her an airprint enabled printer, will this also work without any additional wireless router? Are there printers available that can create an adhoc network?

I could buy a router for her of course, but then her ipad will probably try to get online through Wifi as well and won't be able to connect, or is there a way to use 3g for internet while staying connected to an "empty" Wifi at the same time? I want as little problems for my Mum as possible, so that she just clicks "print" and it should work.

Cannot Join WiFi Network
On my iPad 2 I am suddenly unable to join a secure wifi network at my workplace that I access without any difficulty on my laptop. I have tried shutting down my iPad completely and restarting-- no success. The laptop still connects, at the same location, to the same secure network, without a problem. The iPad used to function on this network without a hitch, and from one day to another, it has gone on strike.

Possible To Set Preferred WiFi Network On It?
I'm wondering if it is issuable to tell my new iPad which wireless network I want it to use at home. My ISP is BT so I have their router plus the option of BT Fon/BT Openzone. My problem is that whenever I take it out of the house or the router goes to sleep over night,the iPad always goes back to BT Fon and I then have to manually select my own network again. On my laptop and mobile I can define the preferred first choice network but don't seem to be able to on iPad.

Force One WiFi Network Over Another
This problem applies to both my iPad 2 and my iPhone. At home, I have two wifi that just streams music to my home theatre via Airport Express and the other which connects to the Internet. My iPhone and iPad both connect automatically to the music streaming network. Is there a way to force them (by configuration or an app) to latch onto the Internet wifi network instead?
