    lol, guys you trolling?

    Me and one person above just said that changing the encryption protocol from WPA2 to WPA helps, you saying it's WPA->WPA2.

  • Hoo Hoo Howie Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    In my case (Belkin N+ router), WPA v. WPA2 / TKIP v. AES made no difference.  Any type of WPA encryption caused the problem.  This problem seems to be very router specific, which is frustrating.

  • ddfss Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    It's definitely not a router specific. I have many clients at home working flawlessly with my current router, even iPhone 4. And only iPad 2 has problems. Doesn't it look suspicious?

     

    As it was stated before in this topic the problem is in 802.11N standard implementation on iPad 2. I'm not sure if it's hardware\software related, but setting 802.11G mode(54 mbps) on router side makes connection stable. And basically the same thing happens when you change you encryption from WPA2 to WPA - connections speed drops to 54 mbps.

    So there's no big difference, but having 54mbps only connection resolves this problem.

     

    For me this is not acceptable, I need full 300mbps to stream HD movies to my TV's. Apple should do something...

    had another go with wpa2-personal - just to check the 'speed' issue (dropping to 54mbps switching to wpa). so i re-did the procedure mentioned above and switched from wpa to wpa2-personal. interestingly the ipad hasn't lost the wifi connection since then (about 3 hours ago).

     

    so at home everything's fine for the moment. next challenge will be a 'foreign' wifi - i'll check that tomorrow at work. i hope that the ipad2 will work again back home.

     

    btw, I'm using the linksys router WAG120N.

    Man I ain't trolling nothing. Maybe it's from something else, I don't know. My default was WPA and I changed it to WPA2 and after that it seems to be working correctly. I don't have a N router, I got an old Trendnet G router, but at least it works.

    Having to cut the speed on my router is not an acceptable solution; I have a number of other devices (DVD player, laptops, Playstation, Wii...even my iPod Touch (4th Gen) that all function flawlessly with the setup as-is.  The problem is with the Apple iPad 2, NOT the router, and for Apple to blame the router for the situation is like blaming the car for for drunk driving.

  • ddfss Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    yep, the same thing I'm talking about...

  • willo2 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I am experiencing connection problems with my iPad 2 WiFi also. I am using a Cisco Wireless N Small Business Router. All my computers work fine on the wireless network. My iPad is the only device that can’t seem to stay connected. Changing from WPA2 to WPA made a small difference, but the iPad eventually failed to connect. Setting my IP to a static IP also failed to resolve the issue. I’m very disappointed and I hope that Apple will address this issue ASAP!

    Hi all

     

    I just bought an ipad 2 and have the same problem but the problem i am haiving is the ipad2 does not like the router set to allow broadcast of same (SSID) to off as you have to broadcast it for the ipad to pick it up but i never like to have that option on sa my iphone works.

     

    the ipad can not gt the wifi if its turned off

     

    can anyone help me on this ?

  • hanke75 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    If I understand you correctly, all you have to do to connect to a non-broadcasting WiFi network is choose 'other' from the network window, and enter the SSID there.

  • Merid Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Well my iPhone does not need to do that, I connected my iPad 2 last night to wifi and today it lost the conection somi turned wifi off and on again and it could not get the name of the wifi conection my iPhone does but that never loses conection anyway. The only way I can get the iPad to connect is to broadcast the name then when the iPad gets it I turn it off again and it's ok but then the iPad losses the conection the next day again and it's starting to get non my nerves. 

     

    I never take my iPad out of the house is there a at to fix this. Thanks

  • Scott667 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I see Apple just ignore its users after selling them the kit. I own 2 iphones, 2 ipods, iPad and iPad2 and an iMac. After seeing the way they just ignore problems though, I won't be buying any more Apple kit.

     

    Plus, I can't unsubscribe from email from this stupid forum. I've turned notifications off in all my settings here, still getting spammed!

    Another work around for you that you might want to try on that model router is to go into your wireless security settings and set your key renewal to 60 seconds. This fix works with V1.00.16 firmware on that model router.

    I haven't heard anywhere that Apple are blaming the router. Yes they are recommending several work arounds that they know work with some routers and they have also recommended some work arounds that you can try on the iPAD too (none of them proved effective for me). In none of my conversations with either the front line technical support people, senior engineers or, marketing relations people on this issue did Apple deny the problem is theirs. They are well aware of the issue and have been trying to come up with a solution.

    thanks for the tip. but i have to update the router's firmware first. but actually i'm a little worried, that i could mess up my home network with the update. the key renewal option is also available on my current firmware, V1.00.07. will it work with this one, too?
