The Apple tv has all the latest updates as do the iphone 4s and ipad2. The ipad 2 intermittantly sees the apple tv and gives me the option to mirror the ipad etc. The iphone4s ALWAYS sees the apple tv and allows me to mirror it.

 

Why is the ipads connection to the aple tv not consistent?

 

thanks

    Hello MHPIGVALVE,

     

    I was researching what we might be able to do to help troubleshoot the different wifi reliability you are seeing with the iPad 2. I found an article called iOS: Troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks and connections found herehttp://support.apple.com/kb/ts1398 that may help get your wifi more consistently working.

     

     

    Resolution

    Many Wi-Fi issues can be resolved by doing the following:

    Basic troubleshooting

    • Tap Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi off and then on again.
    • Verify that you are in range of your Wi-Fi router or base station.
    • Confirm that your Wi-Fi router and Cable/DSL modem are connected to power and turned on.
    • Check whether other devices (portable computers, for example) are able to connect to the Wi-Fi network and access the Internet.
    • Update your Wi-Fi router to the latest firmware.
      • For AirPort Base Stations, refer to this article for information about firmware updates. For third-party Wi-Fi routers, check the manufacturer's website for details on updating your firmware.
    • Restart your iOS device
      • Hold the On/Off button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the On/Off button to turn it back on.

     

    Cheers,
