Help! I have had my iPad for some time now and Never had a problem connecting it to my home wifi. In the last three days it has either not connected, connected but no wifi symbol appears in top left, connected with wifi symbol lit but won't open web pages, or continually asked for the password and said 'cannot access network'. I am at a complete loss to know what to do. Why has this suddenly happened? I have contacted my broadband provider, all ok their end. My laptop has no problem finding the wifi and using it so I can't see it being the router. Even so I have re-set my router and re-set the security on it, still no joy. In fact my iPad couldn't understand how to use the re-set network before it was secured! The frustrating thing is my iPad can use other open networks so why can it not use my home one? because I know modem, router, iPad, laptop are all working,(laptop can use home wifi, iPad can use other open networks) this feels as though I am either totally bonkers or it must be something small that I am missing. I have hard reset the iPad, holding home and power buttons, and reset networks from the general settings. I have tried numerous tips on the router settings, channel 11, putting it onto WEP, adding mac address etc etc etc.
If anyone can help at all it will be hugely appreciated. I am a disabled person so my iPad is used more at home on wifi than anywhere else. I can use another open network or safari, games, updating aps etc but am worried that this is insecure and concerned that other people can pick up card details passwords etc.
I am seriously considering throwing the iPad away as it is not doing what I need it to do and getting myself an android tablet. This would be a shame as in all other ways I'm fond of it but it seems to be acting like it's having a tantrum, maybe it's going through the terrible twos! I just resent that I am paying for broadband my iPad refuses to use!
Has anybody else had these issues? Is my iPad coming to he end of it's shelf life? Has anyone had this issue and managed to resolve it? If so ANY tips would help, even those I've tried before as I may not have done things correctly.
