is it possible to access the ATT WiFi Network (airports/hotels etc) when your iPad 3G is not currently on an active 3G plan? I have an iPhone 4 AT&T model (switched to Verizon), that currently has no service on it that my family has been using as a "touch" that is currently able to access the AT&T WiFi network in airports/hotels. Do any of you have an iPad 1 3G model that is not on an active data plan, and are able to access AT&Ts WiFi network? I will most likely tether my iPad2, however the benefit of the AT&T WiFi network and the GPS unit will likely push me towards a 3G model.
I am an IT Support Technician for a string of doctors offices in North Carolina. I have a personal iPad as well as an iPad for the doctors to use. We are still testing this out with great results however, at one location, the iPad cannot join the wireless network. I can join at home, any of the other offices I have tried but this one location has no luck. I can connect with an iPod touch and browse the web fine. The doctor using this iPad also has an iPod touch and can browse as well. Can anyone give me some help on why I cannot connect? The SSID is similar and the network key is the same for multiple offices. Below is the technical information on the iPads.

Hey everyone, just wondering if you could help me out on a network question. I've currently got a 8022.11g network with 10Mb cable internet connection running at home which handles a couple of Macbooks, a PS3, Wiii, iPod Touch and, of course, my shiny new iPad. I'm about to add a Mac Mini which will basically be a 24/7 server mainly for streaming video via Air Video and doing USB syncing for all the iDevices.
What I'm currently considering is sticking in an Airport Extreme at the same time. Wireless time machine would be very handy and the ability to seperate out my friends wireless access from the main network when they come round is good for peace of mind. My big question though is whether or not I'll see / feel any performance increase on the devices connected to the network, specificaly the iPad. Obviously when the Mac Mini goes in there's going to be a fair amount of traffic which isn't going to help matters but if I'm going to sell it to the wife ideally she needs to actually feel the benefits in daily use.
Anyone out there used their iPad's on both g and n networks? And if so did was there any performance difference whatsoever?
I just moved to minnesota into a house that already has a wifi network, its a three story house, and i'm in the basement....their wireless network would cut in and out a lot when i got all my stuff hooked up (ps3, ipad, iphone, mac book and i hadn't even gotten my xbox hooked up yet, but i would keep getting kicked off the internet and so on) so i went out today and got a router have it hooked up in the basement.....so now when i leave and carry my ipad with me or iphone and then come back it reconnects to the wireless network that cuts in and out...my wireless network isn't as strong upstairs so when i'm up i'd prefer to use theirs but when i come to my room i would prefer the devices to switch to my network. i know on the mac book there is a way to set up an order for it to connect, which i set up, but what about the ipad and iphone? anything to do besides forgetting the network upstairs?
I brought my new iPad wireless (not 3G) with me to Italy last week and I experienced that I could not connect to any wireless networks at any of the hotels, where you had to pay for the use. I think that the reason is that the iPad not will allow multitasking by having two active windows in Safari at the same time.Usually a popup with a counter needs to remain open to let me use the wireless services on my lab top. But that does not seem to be possible for the iPad.Is anybody aware of a solution for this? I thought that there may be an application for the iPad which could allow you to register and pay for a wireless network connection and then start using the service without closing the connection window.
When I am at work, I frequently switch between my work's wireless network and my tethered MyWi connection depending on what I'm doing with my iPad.
If I'm checking Facebook, Twitter, or accessing the iTunes or App store, I have to use the MyWi connection as these sites are blocked thru my works network. If I am updating my RSS feeds, checking non-blocked sites, etc, I prefer to use my work's wireless connection which is of course much faster then the tethered MyWi.
Is there an app or an SB Setting that will allow me to quickly switch between these connections? As opposed to having to tap settings, tap wi-fi, wait for it to load, then tap the new connection, then press home to exit out?
I have a 16GB Wifi iPad, which for the past 3/4 weeks won't pick up any wireless networks.
We have an 'Orange Livebox 1.2' ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orange_Livebox ). I've also tried to connect to a BT HomeHub 1.0 ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BT_Home_Hub ) and I have the same result. I'm not sure how I can resolve this problem.. any ideas?

I'm new to the iPad, but was wondering if there is an App for scanning local wireless networks? I only ask because I don't like the network scanner built in the iPad. It doesn't even display things like what channel each network is using, and only displays a couple of detected networks for a very short time. My notebook immediately displays at least 9 detected networks in the same location.
My ipad used to connect to the wireless net at home and in public areas. Now all by the sudden it can't "see" the network. Message: "Could not connect to wireless network". I have tried "everything" also on different networks, except resetting the modem. My iPhone works, as do all my other computers. Modem is Zyxel P2812
In my environment I've got multiple wireless networks for specific purposes and during iPad setup I'm not within range of all of them. From what I can see I can only set up wireless in the iPad if it's able to connect to it at the time of setup. Is there a way to add all my wireless networks at one time even though I'm not within range of them or am I going to have to go to each one and add it within range of the iPad?
If I connect my Ipad to a network that requires it to use a static IP address will it still be able to connect to other wireless networks that do not without removing the static IP settings or does it remember the settings base on SSID?
Hi, i have iPad2 and am seriously facing a issues nowadays.Yes it is my iPad’s wireless connectivity option only.When ever i try connecting my iPad to home network i get an error message as “cannot scan for wireless networks”. I never faced this issue and i did some steps for fixing this but i couldn’t actually fix this bug.I tried restart & resetting my iPad device, still the problem persists .So what should i do to fix the same problem.
My ipad froze when accessing an email, and I chose the option to restore without losing data. I am now in a loop that gets as far as showing the link to itunes which will come up with setup incomplete but when I choose continue nothing happens and my only option is to start again. I have tried starting again several times but only get to the same point each time. The sync process seems to work as it shows the icon on both the computer and the ipad during the sync but it always indicates incomplete at the end.
So I just got an iPad and the guy at the apple store said that i would be able to get an app that would allow me to access my hard drive on my time capsule wifi hard drive from the ipad. I'm looking mostly to access pictures, listen to music, access PDFs, and play movies. Is there any way to the this without an Internet connection? What apps do you guys recommend getting to make this happen.
Running the most recent iOS. Have attempted to connect to several differnet networks including hot spots. Have restored my iPad to factury settings and set it up as a new iPad and was able to establish a connection very briefly. Have had no success after that in getting the iPad to even post a list of wifi networks avialable. When trying to enter the network's info I get the error message that the iPad is not able to scan for networks.
This is an awesome idea! Eye-Fi Connect X2: the memory card that does all the work for you. Automatically transfers to your computer & organizes photos and videos for you. Uploads to your favorite sharing site. Can automatically make space once everything has been safely transferred. And that's just the beginning.
I've seen many places say that turning this feature off saves battery power, because it won't always be looking for a network. But won't it always be looking for one if wifi is enabled. On or off it says it will connect automatically to known networks. On it says it will ask you to join in known net work. Off it's says you will have to do it manually. But If it's off isn't it always searching to see if there is a known network?
This may have been answered somewhere, but all of the searching I have done can't find much.I have an AT&T usb air card for use with my MacBook Pro. I am trying to find a way to use this setup to connect my iPad for use away from standard networks.I have seen that there are routers for use with this, but I am a little time restrained (just found out that I need it for tomorrow,so don't want to rush to purchase something if possible).
My ability to access WIFI has ceased to work. I've rebooted the router, restored the Ipad, followed all directions in the manual and still no WIFI. I've tried joining my network with the appropriate address and password. I'm getting the message "could not scan for wireless networks".
I see there's no SD card slot, but there is that adapter. When using that adapter, does the SD card mount like a drive? That is, if I had a 16GB card, could I keep files on there, that I access using the adapter, but without actually downloading to the iPad's internal memory. On wireless keyboards -- I see on Apple's site lots of pics of the apple wireless keyboard with the ipad in a doc, but I'd like to use the keyboard while the iPad is just lying down on the table or something. Would the standard apple wireless keyboard work with an ipad just lying on a table (of course, properly synched with the bluetooth
I made a run from central Delaware - thru downtown Wilmington and Philadelphia - up the PA Turnpike for about 100 miles. My Navigon GPS was acting up, so I had my wife turn on Maps.what a pain! Here I was going thru the center of some of the most dense humanity on the Eastcoast and I was either getting No Service or Frickin' E ..the well name EDGE. "The edge always the farthest from you.But it could be the car?! Does your iPad work in a car?
My Ipad just quit on me... after 97 days! I took back to Best Buy and they replace it. Of course I lost LOTS of data that was saved to the device itself. QUESTIONS: 1) How do I change over the service. I did NOT take the old SIM card. Should I go back to Best Buy and take it? Will this just make the new device automatically log on with the old ATT account? what else is on that card? Does it include data saved on the Ipad? Contacts, movies, etc? 2) Or do I just log onto the new device, sign up for the plan, and then cancell the old plan... if so, how do I do that? My email from ATT says to use the old Ipad to cancel, but I of course cannot do that!
