Why can my ipad not get an internet connection in a public wifi area , even though the wifi signal is strong and other users are on- line ok. I get the message"connection to the server imap.aol.com failed"

ipad, Mac OS X (10.0.x)

    If you can't connect to anything at all, reset the network settings and restart the iPad

    Nick, Thanks but how come it connects to internet in UK, but this problem is only in Spain. Now that I am home in UK the internet connection works fine?

    zen bum,

    I suggest that you start a new discussion with your question. You are more likely to get up to date answers that way.


    Is this you home Wi-Fi? Or all Wi-Fi networks? If only at home then reboot your router by powering off for thirty seconds then turn it back on.

    Thanks for your reply Ralph. Truth is I'm trying to set up a new iPhone and get a message saying there is no internet connection on my Wi-Fi signal, which is really an odd error message.


    I tried to delete this comment from this thread, but couldn't see how to do that! Nothing is working for me today.


    Thanks anyway.


    Oh and I tried re-booting the router twice.
