I am so frustrated; at hotel, ipad picks up wifi just fine; safari opens for me to enter password and login; I enter the correct one (I've done this dozens of times and had others try too) and the screen either freezes or never connects. I've reset factory settings; turned off autofill in safari;

I've never had this problem before with any wifi connection with my iPad.

The provider is the Cloud; I'm traveling in sweden.

iPad, macbookpro

    Hi and welcome to the Apple Discussions.

    So, you have turned off autofill, so you know that little trick, and have reset the iPad, have you also gone to Settings > WiFi and manually entered the network information and told it to join that network?

    Are you sure the hotel is using up-to-date WiFi hardware? iPads seem to be sensitive to out-of-date routers based on some of the posts on here. Not much you can do about that in a hotel except carry your own Airport when traveling and use your own network.

    It's the same problem with me. I'm in Kuwait and bought a $10 "Wataniya" wifi card, I connect to the signal great, and it opens a window to enter the login and password info, then I click "login", and nothing happens, the wifi circle up top just spins and spins and I always have to press cancel to get out of it, or exit the entire screen. I am totally unable to connect. I restarted, no difference. I finally gave up after 30 minutes. I whipped out the laptop and it connected in 10 seconds.
