    It's a problem with iOS 6.1.3. Does anyone know how to roll back to the previous version? And any ideas on how to get Apple to actually act on it?

    I'm glad (and sad) to seem that I'm not the only one having the same issues with my ipad mini. Too bad Apple doesn't know jack about customer service. This type oos treatment is disgusting and pathetic on their part.

    It is not a BS problem like that. It's a software problem with iOS 6 update.

    We have multiple Apple devices as well as other devices.  We have all updated with no problems at all.

    wifi connectivity is fine.

    But I also have a new Router (less than 6 months old)

    Every improvement and update to these gadgets adds to the obsolecense of our exhisting electronics.

     

    It may be your router is still using virtual "smoke signals" while your iPod is here in the 21st century....

     

    Every time I have a similar problem it isn't the iPod/iPad/iPhone/Galaxy S3/Droid Razer M, etc, it is always my router or a big stack of updates that haven't been done on the device.

    well good for you. mine was used with even the latest Airport Express 802.11n gen-2 with the latest firmware 7.6.3 and still no go.

     

    only thing that revived my ipad 2's Wi-Fi to partial working condition is to put it into the freezer for about 1/2 hour.

    even then it will only work when i restrict my airport express(2.4GHz band) & linksys 54G AP to B/G mode. Keeping the 5GHz band on the express to N mode for my laptop and iPhone 5 to connect at higher speed.

    How do I put ios 5 back on my ipad?  I can't go more than 10 feet from the router, which is new, and I completely lose connection.  My ipad can't even find the network!

    I also have a brand new router that was released less than a year ago.  It's a very high-end router.  The issue is the device worked well before the update and now the range is awful.  It's clearly a software issue.

    The sooner Apple admits there is a software issue (whether everyone has the issue or not), the sooner they can fix it. I'd like to think IOS7 will have it fixed, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

     

    BTW, my iPad still has the same issues. Though I haven't needed to restore my iPad mini in the last 2 days (a record timeframe), it still loses wifi throughout the day for no reason at all.

    The iPad shows the network but does not connect - even when inches from the Air Port Express. Having reset and retried and follow all suggestions I am at wits end.

     

    For all intents and purposes the iPad is now a paperweight since there is no connection to the internet. No email - no sending or receiving files.

     

    Thanks Apple - good job.

    Same problem here except I thought my router was going so I dropped $100 on a new router only to have the same signal issues.  Not too happy about circular filing a perfectly good router for no reason.  I made this post from my Samsung phone because my ipad 2 won't hold a signal.   Is this how Apple gets you to buy a newer product and how long does this thread need to get before something is done?  I'm sure all the engineers can focus on now is iOS 7, but an interim fix would be nice.
