Tonight, suddenly, my wifi stopped working on all three of my apple devices.

 

It started with the my iPad 3. Thinking that my wifi had just crapped out, as it can do occasionally, I checked my iPhone 5, which was still connected to the internet just fine. I went on to spend almost an entire hour on my iPhone, and it's wifi, surfing forums trying to find a fix to the issue with my iPad.

At first my iPad would connect to my home wifi for all of fifteen seconds, but wont hold a lease.

 

Things I have tried... (in no particular order)

1. Turning my iPad off and then back on (multiple times)

2. Reseting Network settings (under general settings)

3. Renewing lease (lasted, at the most, a whopping 20 seconds)

4. Tried connecting to wifi via "static", that worked long enough to update my facebook feed.

5. Turning wifi on and off

6. Making sure bluetooth wasn't interfering, (not even on)

7. Hard reset my router.

8. Clear Safari cookies and data

9. even adjusted the screen brightness, despite how absurd I found it, because someone else said it fixed their issue.

 

And then my iPhone was no longer running on wifi either. Same issue, wouldn't hold a lease, none of the above worked on it either, so I checked my laptop... connected. My desktop... connected. My brother's laptop... connected. (all PC's btw)

 

Then I checked the other iPhone in the house, a 4S. Same issue, wouldn't hold a lease.

 

All have been running fine, up until this point, on IOS 6.

 

This is so increadibly frustrating! Please tell me someone knows what is going on, and can tell me how to fix it.


iPad, iOS 6.0.1

    same problem, but only at home strangely enough. The wifi at my work seems to do fine.  strangely, my husband's iphone and ipad both connect to wifi at home without a hitch, but mine have both been consistently unable to connect for at least a week. my data bill is massive already!

    It's fairly clear that your router has started to fail.

     

    Replace your router.

    You probably don't have the same problem. I suggest that you start a new thread giving details of your problem including the make, model, and version of your WiFi router. Does it have up-to-date firmware? Also note what iOS levels are being used on each of your iPhones and iPads.

    That's the thing... my router is new, and I woke up this morning to all my devices acting normal. Maybe it was just some strange glitch in my network because it was snowing or something. It's the only thing I can think of.
