Every time I use my ipad I need to re-enter my wifi password.  How do I change the setting so my unit remembers the password?

    It should remember the password. You may have a problem with your WiFi router. Check the manufacturer's support web pages to see if there is a firmware update.

     

    If you need more help please give the make, model, and version of your WiFi router.

    It's not that it is forgetting the password. It is simply having problems connecting to your router with the password and eventually gives up assuming that the password is incorrect.

     

    If you need more help please give the make, model, and version of your WiFi router. Check the manufacturer's support web pages to see if there is a firmware update. There can be a problem even if some other devices appear to connect to your router (especially if they are not running on the same iOS level). What iOS levels are you using?

     

    Also, check to see that MAC address filtering is not turned on in your router and that you do not have a maximum number of connections configured.
