Is there any way to connect the iPad (I have an iPad2) to TV via WiFi without Apple TV? I really do not like the Apple TV and rather use any other instrument (for instance, I have an Xtreamer media streamer, if it helps).
I went to the "settings" icon and clicked on "wifi", and my Apple Extreme router was identified as a signal, but I received a message after choosing my Apple Extreme network that read "The Airport Extreme named "Apple Network ....." cannot be set up by this software. Go to "apple.com/support/airport". Below that message was the outline image of my Apple Extreme. I have been able to use the iPad so far on other wifi locations and don't understand what the problem is here.I am currently using my Powerbook G4 aluminum using OS 10.4.11 to connect and use this communication.
I want to use my I pad to get music and videos cause I am a musician,and that s the main purpose I bough t the machine for.i bought it last week ,and I am very happy with it....I bought some applications and learned how to mail attachments and picture and some angrybirds games.whatsapp,Facebook,msn,and a 4 track recording application.the machine is amazing,I use it on stage with the guitar tabs and repertoire.i ordering now a stereo condenser mic with built in preamp and compressor to record the ambiance with music.But still can t download music and videos straight from my I pad,it says unable to connect to apple store nor to iTunes.
It seems clear many are having WiFi issues. While there are some suggestions involving changes to routers, these in general are at best temporary work arounds. .Not everyone has any ability to change things about the router they connect with..The iPad is supposed to be state of the art gear. Given that, it should be able to work at least as well as a year old laptop in the same location. If it can't, then it had a problem Apple needs to address.
Here's my issue, I just bought an ipad, and I got the wifi only model because I don't really need a 3G ipad and an iphone 4. I work in a public high school that does have wifi, but no one will tell me how to get on it. They act like it some huge secret, but with all the blocks and restriction on our networks its not like I can access things that are inappropriate if I was using the wifi. Anyway, my question is this... is there anything I can buy that can turn the current wired connection into a wifi hotspot for my classroom. Is there a product that can plug into an ethernet outlet and turn the internet connection that is already there into wireless. I brought my airport express from home with me once, but it did not work.
Any advice would be nice. I love my ipad, and will love it even if I cannot get online at school, but I am not going to give up.
i got the 64gb 3g ipad from the US however when trying to enter the wifi address on the ipad into my router, it doesnt accept it. is there anyway i can find a wifi address that will work as i havent got money to purchase a 3g card yet.
I have been trying to connect to the internet via wifi at work to no avail. My Iphone on wifi works fine there. I entered the identical info from my wifi settings in the iphone to my wifi settings in the Ipad.. I show a strong signal but when the page starts to load I get ""Problem Communicating with web proxy server http." Can anyone offer me any help?
iPad 64 3G/Wifi Looses secure wifi network credentials periodically. I retype in the 26 character key and I get back on. This is very unnerving and sometimes leaves my family stranded without a connection. Is this going to be a permanent flaw of the iPad?
I have a 10 day old iPad. I restored the iPad after experiencing problems after an interrupted download. After the restore I had no Wifi (Wifi greyed out in Settings). No fix possible, the iPad has to be replaced. As I am in Canada and there is no Apple store where I am this means Apple shipping me a box, me shipping the box to them and them shipping a new iPad to me. Information: ipad iPhone OS 3.1.3
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)

My university uses a Cisco's system that works like this: you try to connect to the wifi's network and a window opens asking for an user name and password (that's each student has). 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?

I was sitting in the Atlanta airport today and enabled the wifi on my iPad. It recognized something called free public wifi. Touched the screen to enable that, got a check mark and the wifi icon, top left of screen, came on showing the full three bars. However, when I tried to access a web site I got a pop up indicating it could not connect. Regardless of the site, NY Times, Apple, MSNBC, the connection could not be made. My question is why would the wifi icon come on and the iPad not be able to to make an internet connection?
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?
this morning my wifi connection on the ipad dropped out while i was surfing. I did a restart and now I cant even get into the WiFi menu in the Ipad settings anymore, the WIFI menu is grayed out, i cant switch the wifi on or of, next to the WiFi symbol it just says "No Wifi".

I live in a small apartment (2 BR) and recently noticed major signal dropoff of wifi on my iPad when using it there. When using my iPhone 4 in the same spot, there is no problem; in fact the iPhone 4 blazes! Have an airport extreme. On WPA because I have a TiVo that requires it. Do any of Apple's suggestions actually work.
Recently got an iPad 2 but my only source of Internet in the micro sim 3G Internet in the iPad. This is great fir everything bar trying to use my catch up tv apps like BBC iplayer and 4OD. When I try and watch anything via them it tells me I need to connect over a wifi connection, is there anyway round this that doesn't involve me paying out for a broadband router and contract?? I would really like to be able to use the iplayer apps.
as I understand it one of best ways of securing wifi Is to hide the ssid. but when I try this my devices obviously can't connect to the network. even though they have connected before so should remember the network.
anyone else tried/managed to do this or is it not worth it? have altered the default admin password on router
I'm thinking of buying an iPad (aside from iPod, my first Apple device). forgive the ignorance here: can I connect an Apple HDD via USB 2.0 to the iPad? I travel extensively and am looking for more storage.
I had posted about 4 days ago about the charging port on the bottom of my ipad breaking, and it could not ccor do anything. I was so pissed becuase I knew that once I did an RMA with Apple, it would come with 3.2.2 and I would not be able to jailbreak.WELL lo and behold, I did an advance replacement with Apple and I just got my new iPad, 2 days after making the call. Guess what! they shipped me an iPad with 3.2 installed, not 3.2.1 or 3.2.2! jailbreakme.com ---> Cydia installed in less than 2 minutes out of the box.
