WiFi Internet Connection Unable To Connect

Suppenly I am unable to get to the internet. My iPad shows I have a Wi-Fi connection but wont connect me th the internet. Any suggestions on what the problem is? 1- Should I reset my Wi-Fi or iPad? If so, how is that done? 2- Can Wi-Fi and Cellular conflict? Can they both be on at the same time?

Can the iPad support 2 internet connections at a time? Will the wifi of an iPad connect to the router while the device is already using internet via the sim card?

Wifi Internet Connection Using Camera Connection Kit + 3G USB Modem
I have a jailbroken iPad wifi (non 3G) and I've recently bought the camera connection kit which has a USB port (which supposedly detects/connects to even non-camera devices like USB keyboards, USB flash drives, etc).

I was wondering if it would be possible to attach a 3G USB modem/data card and make the Internet work without wifi? The 3G data card otherwise requires a bare-minimum wvdial from a normal Linux terminal.

1. Can I get/install the wvdial .deb package on my jail broken iPad?

2. If I can get the package, will this work (wvdial detecting and using the USB modem and connecting through it?), or is it too far out?

No Internet Connection Despite Having A Strong Wifi Connection For IPad 2
My wife's iPad 2 just stopped being able to surf the internet or use apps which require an internet connection. It connects to our home wifi network just fine and shows strong signal strength, but when she goes to use something requiring a connection to the internet, it tells her that she has no connection to the internet.

Is it possible to connect the iphone to ipad via bluetooth for wireless internet connectivity, or will I need to use the other routes such as pdanet or mywi? I was hoping that there was an easy way, but I cannot get the two devices to see each other when bluetooth is turned on.

Connect To Adhoc Network/Shared Internet Connection
Really enjoying the new iPad. I've been successful tethering it to my iPhone 3G and using the internet with 3G speed. Although 3G speed is decent for many applications, I'd rather use a LAN network when available.I'd like to form an Adhoc wireless network where I work (no wireless available) and use the internet from a network cable plugged into my Windows laptop. Do you think I stand a chance? Anyone try this yet?

New Wifi Isn't Working - Internet Connection
Just bought a iPad during my lunch break and it is not finding the wifi at work. My iMac finds it right away but the iPad finds nothing. I bought the 3G model but I really don't want to use my 3G service at work when we have a 50mbit fiber internet connection that I should be able to make use of via wifi.Should I be concerned that maybe the wifi isn't working on this unit? A co worker has a Droid X and he has no problem getting wifi.

Wifi Internet Connection Failed?
I combed through the forum to see if anyone else has reported this issue. WOW, I was surprised at the wide range of general Wifi problems. Although many, many wifi issues are listed, I did not find a post already listing one.

My Wifi seems to work great on first glance, but when using the iPad for more than 5 minutes the issue becomes noticeable. This occurs while doing pretty much anything. I notice it the most when web surfing and reading books in iBooks. The wifi signal indicator in the status bar drops off to nothing, usually just for 10 seconds or so, then it reconnects. Sometimes it takes longer and at which time a little blue dialog box appears that says "Connecting..." Then it connects and life goes on. Rince and repeat 5-10 minutes later.

Now, I have a feeling it might be something with my Airport Base Station Extreme (ABSE) and here is why: My wife also has an iPad, and the same thing happens to her. It's not an extremely old ABSE, as it is "Extreme" running 7.4.2. I have tried several different settings on the ABSE including reverting to default settings and simply setting it up again with the most basic settings.

So, I am unsure if this problem is caused by the iPad or the ABSE, but either way, it is annoying. Was just wondering if others had experienced this and how they may have solved it. Judging by the wide range of serious wifi issues listed on this forum, it seems to be that Apple has some serious work to do on Wifi in general and maybe all these issues will be resolved in an update.

Internet Connection On Local WiFi Network
I have local Wi-Fi network with 2 Macs, 2 PC's, iPhone, iPod and iPad at home on Linksys router. Each one of these devices have static IP address assigned. On iPad, when I launch app that requires Internet connection, it takes about half a minute, maybe more, to start syncing, opening webpage etc. Whet it finally connects everything goes fine. Another apps connect immediately. But after some time (i.e. 5 mins) of inactivity problems comes back and I have to wait another 30 seconds for loading page, sync etc.

Constantly Freeze When Using Wifi Internet Connection
I am having a problem with N type routers with my Ipad and Iphone 4g

We have in our house 2 ipod touchs, an iphone 4g, and iphone 3g and 2 pc all connected to the wifi.

The iphone 4g and the ipad both constantly freeze when using wifi internet connection all the other devices are fine and receive no interference or loss of signal.

The problem occurs mainly when surfing on safari. Sometime it happens every few minutes.

I think I have narrowed it down to being a problem with n type routers as i use my ipad and iphone at work locations without any problem. All these location have routers on 802.11 a/g and n.

However have tried two different routers a belkin and a netgear at home both which only broadcast N frequency and the problem occurs straight away.

I feel reluctant to downgrade to 802.11 a/g frequent router or slower just to make the ipad and iphone work at the expense of slowing all the other devices down.

Anyone found a solution, have tried suggestions of changing channel, settings on router and ipad/iphone including brightness control detailed in other reports to no avail.

Have just purchased a third router to try using as a repeater to see if i can broadcast signall in 802.11 a/n/and g

Is 3G Shared Internet Considered As WIFI Connection?
I have an iPhone 4S sharing the 3G internet connection with de iOS Hotspot option. My iPad WIFI is connected to that shared connection and the icon of a little chain appears on my iPad.The questions is if the iPad will recognize that connection like a Cellular connection o WIFI special, in order not to do things like download/upload Photo Stream photos, iCloud Backup, Apps downloading things that only are configured to be downloaded from WIFI (like Instacast)? Is 3G shared internet considered as WIFI connection by the iPad?

Strong Wifi Signal & Connection But No Internet?
I have a tv & internet package and every now and again the broadband connection switches off and resets. A couple of days ago this happened and after resetting, my iPad 2 could not get internet access despite the fact that my laptop is picking up a strong wifi signal through the router and is working fine. Incidentally, I took the iPad to work today and it picked up a wifi signal and hooked up to the internet immediately.

I Can Connect To WiFi But Not The Internet
I am trying to connect a new IPad 2. I have a Belkin router that is B+G+N. I use WPA2 encryption and MAC filtering. The IPAD's MAC address was entered into the router and when I provide the encryption key as the password I am able to connect to WiFi but not anything Internet related except for email. When I type any URL in Safari it takes me to my router's management page. In fact I can log into my router and manage it from my IPad but I can't connect to anything else. I have 8 other computers/devices that connect to the router fine including two Apple Ipod touch's.

Cannot Connect Using Internet Sharing By WiFi
My iPad will not connect to the server using my Mac Pro's Internet Sharing by wifi. The Mac Pro is connected to the network by ethernet and my iMac can connect to the Mac Pro's Internet Sharing. The iPad connects (3 bars), but Safari reports that it "could not open the page because the server stopped responding". All of my other wifi apps are unresponsive, too. At home, the iPad works just fine by wifi from my AEBSn. My iPhone has the same problem. It seems there's a setting that I need to adjust.

IPad 3 :: Wifi Connection Connected But No Internet Yet Ipod Touch Working Fine
my ipad no longer has internet connection even though it shows a wifi connection. I have an ipod touch right next to it that works just fine. Under wifi settings for the network the difference for the 2 is that I dont see and address in the router box or addresses in the dns box which i do see on the ipod touch. If i reboot the ipad the internet will work for about 4 mins and then repeats this problem. Since the ipod touch is working and both have the latest software and both are the latest devices I would assume this is an ipad problem and not a wifi router problem. I did type the 2 dns addressses in that were listing on the ipod touch in the dns box but i cant enter info into the router box.

Also to note that the ipad has no problem connecting to my home wifi or several others. Just this one and just all of the sudden. It did work 2 weeks ago.

Connect To Wifi Router But It Won't Allow To Access The Internet ?
My ipad is running into wifi issues. It will connect to my wifi router but it won't allow me to access the internet, and theres nothing wrong with the router because the ipad worked before and my computer and other wifi enable devices connect to it and have internet access. Another issue which I encountered today was the ipad had connected to a Free Public WiFi when there are no wireless networks around. I know this because I work in an enclosed space that can't send or receive wireless signals.

IPad 3 :: WiFi Connected But Won't Connect To Internet
Quite often when I'm listening to my radio app it will stop working for no reason and all I get is the little circle thing rotating as it tries to reconnect. I then find if I try to open anything that needs a wifi connection it won't work, I.e. BBC iPlayer. I have to hard shut down the iPad and switch it back on and then I get connection back. This happens a lot and is really annoying. The wifi is definitely ok and if I go into Settings it says that wifi is connected.

Using Mobile Phone To Connect To Internet - WiFi Modem
I think that this might be called tethering.Is it possible to connect to your mobile phone (not necessarily an iPhone) via Bluetooth or WiFi and use it as a "modem" to connect to the Internet vie 3G network.? Actually I am pretty sure that Bluetooth won't work.I have seen that "WiFi modems" can be used with the iPad. In principal your mobile phone should be able to do the same thing without needing another 3G account. Does a WiFi modem operate differently in some way?
