I have a 32 Gb 3G+wifi and for some reason my wifi symbol will not show up. I can still connect to it though and my 3G I made sure was turned off so it still works but the symbol won't show up. Right now in the top left it says "iPad" with no symbol next to it.
I recently found a network at work called Free Public WiFi. When i connect to it I get the WiFi symbol at the top left that shows a wifi connection. However, when i open Safari and try to open a website it says Safari cannot open the page because it is not connected to the Internet.
I ran through 250MB in like 3 days and even though my account said "No Domestic Plan" I still had the option to cancel the plan or add more data. I decided to cancel the plan, because if I didn't I would be charged another $15 after 30 Days right? So since I cancelled, when I go back to View My Account, all my information is cleared out and I no longer have the 3G symbol. When you first get the iPad 3G, whether you activate a plan or not, it's still supposed to have the 3G symbol at the top. So why is mine gone after I cancelled the plan? And now the only way I can add more data is if I'm connected to WiFi. So was I not supposed to cancel my plan?
I just wonder you have the same problem of ipad2 wifi signal symbol.I just can not find the symbol of wifi which is supposed to be the top-left in the screen of ipad2, even though I can access the internet.
I slid my ipad air screen to the right. I then had a blank white screen with only wifi symbol, time and percent of charge. Only thing that would work was getting SIRI activated. That went away after a while and screen went black. I tried to turn air on or off by pressing the power button to no avail. Want to add the unit was about 70 percent charged during all this.
Recently bought an iPad wi-fi only, connect to all wi-fi's fine other then my office one. In the settings it shows its connected by the name off the wi-fi then keeps flashing not connected. I have reset the router and the network settings in the iPad.
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.
It is very likely something in your wireless router. Unless you are using a 3g iPad with the 3g cell towers triangulating your position, your iPad uses something that is broadcast from wireless routers around you...and you do not need to be connected to that router for this to take place. The iPad appears to read the strongest wifi signal and sets your location based upon what location that particular router you are detecting is reporting.I bought two wifi iPads, one for myself and one for my Mom. I set both up at my house. I have the widely popular Linksys wrt54g2 router. Both iPads hit my location very quickly and are quite accurate. I then took my Mom's iPad to her house with a Tenda router and the map starts showing my location as South Korea! If I walked down the street one way about 100 yards, it would lose her router's signal and pick up one down the street, jumping the location back to my vicinity.
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)

I am posting this on my PC. I have a Ipad and Iphone. Hotel has wifi and I show full bars on wifi. When I start sarfi, it says connecting, but nothing happens. Turned off wifi and turned back on again. Why can I connect thru PC lap top and not my i pad? This has NEVER happened on my ipad.
