It Does Not Connect To Home WiFi
On my iPad (the New iPad), I tried to connect to my home wifi. But I turned on the wifi, then it's showing a loading sign on side of the wifi name. Also, beside the left corner of the top black bar, the wifi sign is not showing. I've tried to restart the device, reset the wifi, reboot, or restart my wifi modem. The iPad's wifi connection works well other than my home wifi.

Cannot Connect To WIFI - Home Buttons ?
i have had my ipad for a week and it worked flawlessly that whole time. i connected to my wi-fi network at home and at the hotel where i'm currently staying. all of a sudden last night it would no longer connect, i get an error message. i left it off overnght but this morning the same thing happens. i tried presing the home button and the top button at the same time powering off and letting it sit. then i restored it through itunes. neither thing worked. it sees the network but won't connect. my mbp is connected to the same network just fine. what else can i do? i am out of town and not sure there is an apple store near me as i'm kinda in the sticks right now. i don't want to use up my 3g cell minutes everytime i want to use my ipad, as i've gotten used to using it for everything while i'm watching hulu on my computer.

Ipad Won't Connect To Home Wifi Now
I bought an ipad series 1 two weeks ago and connected successfully to my home router (netgear DG834G V2) now when I try to connect, the ipad with signal fan appears in the top left of ipad, it says my routers name in the wifi section of settings. But, as soon as I try to connect to the internet via Safari, the message 'cannot open page because it is not connected to the internet', appears.

Ipad 2 Can't Connect To Wifi At Home
trying to connect to home wifi (verizon dsl) but it say 'can not connect to the network'. I tried many different ways,,,changed network names, WEP, no WEP, my laptop and my old itouch connects well according whatever the change I make with network with or without Secrity codes. My ipad detects the network name but doesn't get connected with or without security..took it work today it works fine here. Entered the password, boom. I guess it's more of my DSL modem setting, I log into the router website but nothing I can changed around.

Unable To Connect It With Home WiFi?
I have a cable modem and Netgear wireless router on the second level of my home.All of our wireless devices, which includes an iMac, Kindle Fire, PC laptop connect to our wireless network, except for our 2 iPads. When we are on the same level with the modem and router, most of the time we don't have a connection, and when we do it's spotty and slow. As a matter of fact, I reset the iPads network and when I tried to join our wireless network it didn't even show up in the list. The strange thing is when we are on the lower level, the level without the modem and router, then we can connect.Every other device has no problem on the same level as the modem/router.

Can't Connect Ipad 2 To Home Wifi?
I can use my hotspot on my iphone. No problem. But my wireless router isn't even showing up on the ipad settings. Only sometimes it will appear. If it does show up it doesn't allow the password to be accepted. I tried resetting the router and updating the software. After I did that the router doesn't even register on my ipad now. I know my router is working because it is working on my other items throughout the house.

WiFi On It Won't Auto-connect At Home
Even though I have ASK TO JOIN NETWORKS off and successfully type the WiFi password, the iPad defaults to cellular if left in stand by for a few hours.

I can work in WiFi, but if I come back to the iPad later in the day. I'll have to join the network again.

I have an Airport Extreme (latest update) and use it with a first generation iPad, 2 iPhone4s and an iPhone 3G, all of which work fine. Only the new iPad had this problem.

I have my work network setup also, and that auto connects, so it might be the relationship between the Airport and the new iPad.

WiFi Network In Home No Longer Connect?
I have been using my IPad for about a month and successfully connecting to my in-home WiFi every day. This morning I must have done something because I can no longer connect.

I have the WiFi model only (no 3G) and operating under OS 3.2.1.

My WiFi is working for all other wireless connected computers in the house so that is not the problem.

Wifi Only Works At Home - Doesn't Connect Outside
WiFi working for over 1 week now-

Purchased Ipad April 15 San Francisco

Hotel SF- could not sign in

Hotel- Orange county- connects, but drops connection

Hotel San Diego- could not sign in

San Diego airport- connects, but must sign in repeatedly

Back home to Mexico

Gateway 2 wire adsl-wep- connects right away but drops connection, prompts for password after less than a minute.

I tried all the work arounds that have been provided on this and other sites, nada-nothing.

Went to car wash, Ipod signs right in(has worked everywhere), Ipad no, after 25 minutes of screwing with everything, I got connected, but it kept dropping connection and prompting for password.

Filed report with Apple April 27

Had a friend bring over different router/modem-b/g, changed to wpa and all other work arounds, nothing different, dropping always, or not connecting.

May 3, I re-connected my original Gateway 2 wire-wep- same issues-, and also ordered a Netgear N router/modem from the States, still waiting for it.

Up until May 29 I checked this message board daily, hoping for Apple to have a WiFi fix, or at least make some more comments regarding this issue, nothing Except for continued cheers from the fan boys and girls who for the most part seem to have no issues at all, and still insist that this is only happening to a very small number of Ipad owners(a very small percentage of a couple of million units is a lot in my opinion), and saying that the rest of the world needs to change to be able to use our Ipad's as promoted. I won't start on about 3g and At&T.

Back to last week, May 29, after being more than a little frustrated again from dropping connections I made some changes- I again tried forget network- and now my IP address is set to DHCP- HTTP Proxy is off- and I put my Auto-Brightness BACK ON, and my blue brightness bar is set to about 20%, about 1 inch of blue is showing.

Since I made those changes, I have not been prompted 1 time for my password, I have also not dropped any connections. I do not know if this is part of why it is working now, but when I open with the home button, if I go straight to my email or safari, there is no connection, I then go back to home and wait maybe 30 seconds, when I then re-open either safari or email, I am connected??? I also now hit the home button before I put it to sleep, I only know that it has seemed to work for over 1 week now, I use it 5-6 hours everyday, and turn it on and off all day long also, and it always connects, and without a password. I am currently afraid to take my Ipad away from my house, now that it is working, but I will try this week, since I purchased this so I could take it anywhere and leave my laptop at home.

Hard Reset Proceedure Is Called When Home And Sleep/on/off Buttons Are Held Simultaneously ?
I can't seem to determine if a Hard Reset proceedure is called when the home and sleep/on/off buttons are held simultaneously... until the screen blanks out - or until the screen blanks out AND then the Apple Logo comes back. I have ?always been holding the buttons until the logo returns then letting go.

Today, after a couple of hard resets, I noticed that the background apps that were running when the reset was performed, were still showing in the multi-task bar afterwards. That completely contradicts what I had envisioned for a hard reset.

The first hard reset I tried to perform a while ago got things messed up more than before the reset - bunch of stuff missing in settings, apps would start briefly and show up on Multi-task bar, but wouldn't stay on the screen, etc.

Won't Connect To Wifi / Can't Find Settings To Connect With Wifi
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.
