The wifi problem I am having involves an occasional hang of the wifi in which the webpage loading progress bar hangs at about 10%. When this happens I have to turn off wifi and turn back or reset the iPad entirely. Each iteration of doing this it hangs more frequently until finally my router no longer works and then i have to reset the router. The router becomes dead that even my other computers cannot access it. I am using a static ip address on all devices including ipad and am always very close to the router. It is indeed unsatisfactory that apple has not released even official acknowledgemenf that the problem is atleast being looked into. Is anyone else experiencing the same issues I am having?
I Have an iPad 2 with IOS 5.01. When accessing some websites pages either don't fully load (progress bar stops part way across) or some images don't load. Now when I access the same websites on my Mac on the same network the problem is not there. Using Firefox on the Mac I can see that during the page loading process external websites are accessed (google analytics or sites that deliver banner ads etc.) and I was wondering if this might be the cause of my problem. I've already done all the usual re-sets and re-boots but no joy. I'also changed to another browser, iCab, but again no luck. One specific websites I'm having problems with is [URL]. Maybe somebody here could try accessing that site and then click on some of the links and see if they get the problem?
I'm using a 64 gb IPad 3g, and I'm having some issues with Safari.
Specifically, it pretty consistently gets stuck when loading a webpage. The progress bar will get stuck about a third of the way across, and the only way to fix it is to select the address bar, then select the page itself, which brings up the refresh icon in the address bar, and then hit reload. Most of the time, this causes the page to load again within a second or two. Occasionally I have to do this twice.
If I decide to just wait for the page to load, I generally have to wait 10-15 seconds. It's very annoying. I've gotten to the point where it becomes a bit of a ritual. If a page doesn't load immediately I just hit reload a couple of times.

When loading a detailed web page, I.e., a My eBay list, font and illustrations often keep shrinking, aligned to the right upper corner, stopping when the font is tiny. Reloading the page usually corrects the problem.

I have an ipad2 wifi - 3G, after sync with itunes last night, when I turn on 3g , using different online apps my ipad shows "could not connect to server" or "please check your network connection", although the signal is full bars. When I use safari to load websites, after that message shown, it works sometimes, but sometimes it still shows that message and losts connection, this situation only appears when I use 3g
My Wifi iPad worked fine. I haven't had any of the problems that many were having with weak signal or dropped connections.
Starting yesterday, when I booted up my iPad, I was able to get data coming from my Wifi for about 20 seconds before everything would just hang. I'm showing full bars, but every app just keeps reading and reading data and eventually tells me that the server timed out.
If I renew the lease from the iPad, I get the data to work for about 30 seconds and the issue starts again. The only way I can seem to get it to connect and to stay connected is to unplug my Airport Extreme and plug it back in.

OK, I admit that wifi has improved, bit it's not fixed. WiFi still stalls on loading pages. Yes it's faster, yes it is more reliable, but after a while, it does still stall. The same fix as before is anwork around, but it's not over yet. Not by a longshot. My current work around is to forget the network and re-join it. I'm down to twice a day now, not every five minutes, but seeing as my laptop can connect for over a week with out re-booting, this is definitely an Ipad issue.Come on apple, get your thumb back into the sunlight and fix it once and for all.
We just noticed this problem in last 24 hours.We have a web pagewww.ergocrm.comIt loads on ipad no problem with wifi connection.But switch to AT&T 3G connection on Ipad or Iphone, and the very same page will not load.Switch back to Wifi, and the page loads instantly.Any else have this issue? It almost seems like AT&T is blocking packets
I have had this problem since I got my iPad last week. I am connected to my wifi network and have the 3g turned off. It seems only to be connected for about 2-5 minutes and it then doesn't load anything, the iPad will say it is connected, but no pages will load, app store won't search. How I have been able to fix it is going into wifi settings then disable/enable, but this only works for once again My router's firmware is up to date and I have iOS 4.2. I have reset the network connection settings and still same problem.
I got my iPad 2 on Friday and have been loving it so far but for iPad 2 owners, have any of you had an issue with your iPad where it says it has wifi connectivity and doesn't load web pages? I have an iPhone too and my phone constantly has connectivity but my iPad will intermittently stop connecting to the Internet. The only way I've found to fix the problem is to reset the iPad.long story short, has anyone else had problems with their iPad 2 losing connectivity nut still showing it's connected to the Internet.
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?
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.
I picked up my new iPad Air yesterday and it really seems to be slower or having more trouble loading websites and pages than my old iPad 3.
I checked my connection speeds on the iPad Air with speadtest and they seem reasonable; Ping-34, Dwnload-24.25 Mbps, Upload-4.73 Mbps.
This compares to my last iPad 3 speedtest; Ping-19, Dwnload-27.09 Mbps, Upload-5.36 Mbps.
I contacted Apple Care, and they had me reset my network connections in the iPad Air, which worked a bit, but it is still very very slow loading websites/pages. Actually to the point where I click into the address bar and hit "go" to try and force it to load.
Once in a website, I do not have any issues playing embedded videos from the website. Also, using the movie "trailer" app, the videos, even in High Def, run fine and smoothly. No delays or freezing.
My iMac also uses the same WiFi "Airport" and router to connect and it zips along loading webpages and websites. So this seems like an issue within the iPad Air and maybe Safari.
I have had my iPad for about 30 days and have noticed that no matter where I take it i get very poor WIFI signals reception. I have to release and renew my connection no matter where I go to help with connection speeds. I'm ready to exchange the thing, I was just wondering if anyone else is having the same issue. The connection issue is blasted all over the net and figure this forum was a good place to start.
Had my retina mini wifi+cellular a couple days now currently still on 7.0.4. Background of iPad 3 and iPhones.
So a couple of times a day when loading safari page or YouTube video it freezes loading, I've tried closing the application but that doesn't work, only thing that works is a hard reset (sleep and home button for couple seconds)
It's started to get annoying, thought it was a one off the first time. iPad 3 and iPhone 5 on same wifi work fine.
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?
So my iPad 3G is having issues connecting to my wireless internet. I can enter the password and connect to my connection and have the wifi bars at the top appear full bar. But it doesn't seem to be working. Whenever I open a browser it asks me to get 3G data plan. It clearly says I AM connected, but the apps that require wifi connection says I need wifi.
I am sitting in school with my MacBook pro and my ipad 16gig side by side. I am on the school wifi connection with both but my iPad is sooooo much slower than my MacBook.Is there a reason for this?? I cannot figure it out?
I upgraded my iPad to iOS 5.1.1 last night. Ever since then, it keeps losing the wifi connection. My laptop, ipod and iphone are not losing any connectivity with the wifi, nor has this been a problem with the iPad prior to upgrading the iOS.
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.
