Auto Join To WiFi - Switching On Wifi Everytime

I find that every time I switch in my iPAD - I need to manually connect to my home wifi network. Whereas my iPOD automatically finds the network or at least asks to join the network. Withthe iPAD I have to go into settings evry session to switch onthe WIFI .

My settings are: the same for both:
mynetwork : ticked
Ask to Join Networks: ON
Search domains: home (I can't seem to switch this to nothing)
HTTP proxy: Auto

Anyone Switching From Wifi + 3G To Wifi-only This Time?
My current iPad is wifi-only and I am getting an wifi-only again for the New iPad. I was seriously thinking about getting the network version iPad when the Original iPad was first launched, but I am glad that I went with the wifi-only version because I really had no regrets based on my iPad usage. Also, my iPad looks better without the ugly black strip.

How Do I Disable Wifi Auto Connect For A Particular Wifi Network
I recently connected my iPad to a wifi network with weak signal strength. Now my emails get stuck in my outbox instead of being sent. I can turn off wifi and use 3g, but then I have to remember to turn it back on when I leave. How do I stop the iPad from auto-connecting to the faulty wifi?

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.

Wifi Unable To Join The Network
Just having major issues with 4.2.1 on the wireless. I can occasionally connect and it will work for 5 minutes and then disconnect. When I attempt to reconnect it will give me "Unable to Join the network"reset in General --> Reset. I've restored 4.2.1 again on my iPad as new.Other iPads at 3.2 work fine from the exact same location. iPhone 4 (V4.2.1) works on the same spot fine.

Cannot Join WiFi Network On IPad 2
This is the third time I have had this problem since I bought my ipad about 6 months ago. What happens is that every time there is a software update my ipad will refuse to connect with any Wi-Fi networks. It will usually be disconnected for about a week and I cannot remember how I fixed it last time. I have updated the software (via the computer), tried turning the iPad on and off again, restarted the modum while the iPad was turned off, done a full system restore, 'reset network settings' and checked my iPad access point. I know this is not a problem with my internet modum because every computer in our house is working; even our second iPad 2 is working fine (it has never had any problems like this).

Automatic Switching Between WiFi And 3G?
With both 3G and WIFi enabled, will the iPad defer to available (and open) WiFi networks?

I use my ipad at the gym and the WiFi network i connect to is variably available. I'm curious if, in order to preserve the (increasingly precious) 3G data plan, will WiFi be preferentially used when the signal is detected?

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?

Automatic Switching Between 3G And Wifi?
I've tried searching with different parameters and also a different forum but didn't get a definitive answer to my question. I have read various places that the Ipad (I have Ipad 3/64GB 3G coming from Ipad 1 64GB wifi only for two years) will automatically switch from 3G to wifi when available or choosing which is stronger but in settings it says in order to restrict basically all data to wifi to turn off cell usage. So--I only turn on cell usage when I leave the house altho' I will encounter wifi all day various places. Since I have the bug where I often/usually have to reboot to get 3G to work I do that before leaving house/office so I don't have to deal with it when I need 3G. IF I knew it automatically switch I'd just leave cell usage on all the time.

WiFi Password - Join Button Goes Inactive
I have the 64GB Ipad WiFi + 3G.

When I try to log into a wireless network, it prompts me to enter the password and the "join" button is illuminated on the screenkeyboard. Once I enter the password, the "join" button goes inactive (turns from black to gray) so I can't Enter the password. This happens in my house and in WiFi Hotspots.

I keep having to use my data plan to access the web.

WiFi Password Fixed By Switching To 128-bit Encryption
Upon waking, my iPad would often prompt me to re-enter my WiFi password, or simply say that it wasn't connected to the internet. I was using an old D-Link Router with 64-bit WEP encryption. After talking to a senior support tech, I switched the WEP to 128-bit and it's been smooth sailing ever since. (He said he recommends 40-bit or 128-bit, just not 64-bit. Mine doesn't have 40-bit.)This is still a bug, because if you're in some random hotel, you can't change the router settings. But this workaround may help until a patch is released.

IPad 2 :: Connecting To Home WiFi - Unable To Join Network
Using a D-Link DIR-615 modem, my notebook, android phone all are connected with no problems. When trying to connect the iPad, I get the message "Unable to join the network." Have worked on this several hours trying to research any problem on the D-Link site or Apple and am at a loss. I am no computer expert by any stretch of the imagination. The iPad does connect to the internet using my Android as a hot spot.

That's my network at home.

Auto Connect To Wifi Missing?
This is starting to bug me! If I wake my iPad from sleep, it doesn't automatically connect to my first-gen dual-band Time Capsule anymore. I have to keep going into Settings, and then touching my protected network which is showing there, and then it connects. So obviously it remembers the network and WPA2 password, but it's not auto-connecting. It's really annoying!

Anyone else experiencing this? I've reset network settings, and even reset the whole device a couple of times, and it still misbehaves.


It's doing it on 2 iPads. I suspect there's some wifi glitches with these devices. Shame, really.

WiFi On It Won't Auto-connect At Home
Even though I have ASK TO JOIN NETWORKS off and successfully type the WiFi password, the iPad defaults to cellular if left in stand by for a few hours.

I can work in WiFi, but if I come back to the iPad later in the day. I'll have to join the network again.

I have an Airport Extreme (latest update) and use it with a first generation iPad, 2 iPhone4s and an iPhone 3G, all of which work fine. Only the new iPad had this problem.

I have my work network setup also, and that auto connects, so it might be the relationship between the Airport and the new iPad.

Safari Page Auto Reload When Switching Panes
So far, I love the iPad. However, my first complaint is hen I switch between web page panes. For instance, I am trying to fill out a form on one, but need to grab some info off another page. When i switch back, Safari automatically, reloads the page and clears any information I might have had filled out. This is very counter productive, not to mention, very annoying. Especially, if the page has a lot of pictures, etc.... Anyone having the same problem? Information :iPhone OS 3.1.3.

Auto Login Wifi Guest Network
we running an iPad pilot within our company and I'd like to use the internal wifi guest network. the guest network is using a loghin page with userid and password and a little checkbox to accept the terms.when i connect with the ipad (and iphone as well) and fill in the required fields it nicely connects. but after sleep or a reboot it keeps coming with the login page and needs the uid/pw/checkbox. I can make the ipad remember the uid/pw and it fills them in the login page but it keeps wanting the checkbox.there should be some automatic protocol to auto login so I connect to the company wifi just like it is at home (i know, wpa2 at home is completely different, but for the end user is isn't

Weak/Intermittent WiFi/turned Off Auto-Brightness
I just wanted to share what worked for me. I turned the Auto-Brightness setting off and immediately had a strong and steady WiFi signal. Nothing else has worked. I'm assuming the sensor must somehow interfere with WiFi reception and turning it off has made all the difference in the world. I
hope this can help some others because I can certainly understand how frustrating this is for everyone. Nothing like getting a new toy and having an expensive paperweight!

Limited Wifi Range/Unable To Access Any Public Wifi ?
Hi, not sure if I've seen this topic covered, so here goes:
I've had 4.2 OS since implementation with no problems with the wifi...until this past weekend. Then, I logged onto wifi at a motel.

Unable to get new connection following morning. Unable to access any public wifi since. I'm back home, and can't connect to my wifi unless I am literally one foot from my router, signal so low as to be ridiculous. Tried multiple trusted routers and reset multiple times at my home, friends' homes, etc. Also, have tried:

re-set all settings, including network settings; brightness up; join network on/off; factory reset, back to square one. NOTHING. Bought 1.5 weeks ago. I know it's not the routers, have used multiple brands/types with no joy.

Won't Connect With WiFi / Router Works Perfectly With Other Wifi Device
I've had my iPad for a couple of weeks now, and I've nothing but problems maintaining a connection to my wireless router (D-Link WBR-2310) - the router works perfectly with other Wi-Fi devices (non-Apple), but with the iPad 6 inches from the router, the connection fails. It's gotten progressively worse until now it won't connect at all. I've tried a system reset, tried all of the suggestions posted here and elsewhere on the Web - it simply doesn't work. The iPad is defective, plain and simple. This HAS to be resolved. Running iOS 3.2.2 (7B500)

I have always been able to connect from my laptop, iPhone, and other devices, but when I try from my iPad the screens frozen and keeps that a way, and if it does nit frozen, nothing happens at all. Anyone with a similar problem or solution?
