When I try to pair them, the iPad and computer find each other. The computer provides a number that should appear on the iPad but it doesn't. After a while, the computer stops the process. On the iPad, I touch the computer label and the iPad continues its process for a while and just goes to Connection Failed. The computer is MacBook Pro, OS 10.8.2.  Thanks

iPad, iOS 5.1.1, New iPad

I too was having problems with BT pairing on all my devices after Lion update - here's how to fix- shut down your computer, power up and immediatly hold cmd option "r" and "p" (all at the same time) your screen will flash a few times but you want to keep holding the buttons through two cycles of start-up. Release the keys after the second start-up. Then re- pair your BT device and it will work.


I had to do this on my macbook air and mac mini. On the Mac Mini - the system restarted said it was recovering from internet, once it was done all my BT devices worked just fine.


Good luck.
