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

    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.
