    Reasonable?  Perhaps not.  It would be nice if everything always worked perfectly, all the time.

     

    But the reality is, that's not the case.  So, your choices are to perform the troubleshooting steps, or to ignore the problem.  Give your feedback to Apple at www.apple.com/feedback.

    Hey guys, just to give a quick update. I did reset my router. I unplugged it for about 30 seconds and then plugged it back in. that was yesterday afternoon. Up until now, I've had ZERO issues. I've left the apartment and come back, etc. etc. Everything SEEMS to be ok for the time being. All idevices are locked in and working fine. If anything changes, I'll let y'all know. Just wanted to put in my final 2 cents for now. Bonne chance, mes amis.

    None o this worked for me. I can get on at home no problem. I can´t get on at places I used to just auto logon with my old iPad even after upgrading to iOS7. The problem though is now I am at 7.0.3. Maybe I need to go back, but how does one do that.  Now with a new iPhone and a new iPad with iOS7 I cannot get online at several places I use. Trading in for a cellular iPad is not a solution. Thius problem existed before with older ipads in older systems. Apple apparently went back to code that busted us. We need this fixed. I depend on conectivity for my job. If I can´t get online, I can´t work. I´ve doen everything listed in articles in last post plus some with no solution.

     

    Turning off routers and restarting is not an option. Restauarants, coffee shops, etc. can´t be doing that for a random customer. It needs fixing.

    Okay, So I have done all the steps on the Apple site for fixing the Wifi issue: Ipad Network reset, Actual Network reset, Restoring an old Ipad Image then upgrading iOS, Backup and restore current iOS (7.0.3) and restore that image, turn on/off airplane mode, and simply rebooting the Ipad2.

     

    Here is what I have found. 

       - Putting my Ipad 2 in Airplane mode, then back to normal gives me about 2 minutes of Internet Connectivity.

       - Shutting off my Ipad 2 and turning it back on gives me about 1hour of connectivity.

    However, my Iphone 4S has no issues, nor does my wifes 4S.

       - All were updated the same day, almost the same times (updated phones when I saw update availible on pad).

     

       - Yes, I have a work around, however, there should be no need for a work around.


    Could it be a configuration issue with the Router? its a DVW3201.

    I have made no changes to the router since it was set up by the ISP.

    Though, I have checked to make sure it wasnt as simple as too many wireless devices connecting.  This was not the issue, only have 4 connected (at most) and the router can handle 5.

    Until the Update to 7.0.3 there were no issues with connectivity for the Ipad2.

     

    Lawerance or TJBUSMC1973 I welcome your ideas as this issue continues.

    Two things to try. First, reboot the router if you haven't already. Next, go to the router manufacturer's web site and see if there is a firmware update available for it. Standards get updated periodically, and the iPhone always adheres to the latest standard. If the router's firmware is not compliant there can be issues.

    It is not possible to downgrade iOS. Never has been.

    It's not for just one random customer.  It may be that those routers need firmware upgrades.  That's a common cause for this kind of issue, so, as a customer, express to the staff or manager that you think they may need to update their wi-fi routers to accomodate the iPhone users.  As the most popular smart phone on the market, they probably would be glad to be informed that some of their customers are experiencing issues.

     

    Speak up!

    I keep reading about routers updating firmware, routers rebooting, and even so, router configurations...

     

    There is a joke that I don´t know how it will in English, but I will try to translate it as simple as I can in order to share the analogy:

     

    A guy goes to the doctor and says pointing with his finger every body part he mentions:

    - Doctor, if i touch my shoulder, it pains. If I touch my head, it pain. If I touch my heart, it pains. if I touch my arm, it pains. What do I have?????

    The doctor answer:

    - A broken finger!!!!!!!!!!

     

    So, what on earth are we still thinking that it is something OUTSIDE firmware 7.0.3??? if all problems started when we upgraded to thar firmware version????

     

    PS: Hope the joke did not loose anything in the translation

    It's a good joke.

    Parrish Jones Level 1 Level 1 (100 points)

    I'm just replying in general. The many suggestions about firmware updates and the like are unhelpful. When the problems didn't occur until Apple updated iOS it is obviously an iOS problem. We had this problem with another update several years ago. Finally Apple figured it out. My home router is an old router that's been around quite a while. Why does it work and the one's in the community do not?

    I'm glad it's obvious to you, but it isn't obvious to people who are knowledgeable about how WiFi works. There are two sides to a WiFi connection, and they have to agree. If one of them has not been kept up to date with latest standards and the other has it will not work. If any process in the router has crashed prior to the update in will not work until the router is rebooted. If the phone has a long lease and the update has deleted the IP address associated with that lease it won't work. None of these have anything to do with the version of iOS. And if you search the forum you will seen that WiFi problems happen all the time, with every version of iOS going back over 6 years. Sometimes after an update, but not always. There is nothing special about 7.0.3 in this regard. See, for example:

    iOS 6 WiFi option is GREYED OUT (unrelated to iOS 6 WiFi connectivity issues)

    Nothing lost in translation, but let me try to explain.

     

    Joe speaks English.  Bob speaks English.

     

    One day, Joe learns to speak Russian, and can no longer speak English.  From now on, he ONLY speaks Russian.

     

    Bob, however, is multilingual.  He speaks English, Spanish, German, French, Italian and Chinese.

     

    Bob can easily learn a new language just by reading a textbook that teaches the language.

     

    For Joe & Bob to talk to each other, Bob MUST learn Russian.  Joe cannot unlearn Russian, nor can he go back to English.

     

    Joe is the iPhone.  Bob is the Wi-Fi router.

     

    An iPhone (like many other similar devices) can only speak one language.  A wi-fi router is supposed to be able to speak MANY languages.  It is the responsibility of the wi-fi router to speak the language of the device trying to connect.  The iPhone is the 'customer'.  The Wi-Fi router is the 'server'.

    The firmware update is the LAST step in the troubleshooting article.  Do all the other steps first, then try that one.

     

    There's a REASON it's in the troubleshooting article.  Why do you feel you can just ignore it? What kind of background do you have in iOS software, 802.11 protocols, or WLAN in general that makes you so confident it MUST be the iOS?

    Guys - apologizes if the joke sounded that I was mocking on you. This was not my intention.


    The point is that I know about routers, connections, protocols, and IT stuff. I´ve been working in Technologies for most than 20 years. I know that many configuration errors can be solved by a workaround and I know that many users on this discussion are asking for another kind of problem, that might have a clear solution. That´s great for you guys trying to help everyobody here!

     

    The problem here is that my iPhone started behave strange after firmware Upgrade to 7.0.3.

     

    Firstly, it worked fine. Then, it started to have problems connecting Wireless routers. Then it did not connect to ANY router (included the ones that it connected perfectly a day ago). Then, the WiFi switch became grayed. Then it was available again, but did not connect to any Router. Then I tried to switch Airplane Mode OFF and connect to a WiFi but did not transmit anything. Then, I did a Restore as a new device and the WiFi worked, for a while. Then, it stopped working. Then it grayed again.

     

    Now, it is grayed.

     

    So, what is it? If the wifi processor was fried, It shouldn´t had worked again, as it randomly did.
