Did you check if those networks are set up correctly to allow your devices to connect?
If yes, try to reset the network settings on your device, but this will also reset the passwords for your other known networks and you'll have to fill them in again we you connect the next time.
Thanks. It is the inconsistency which discourages my doing a reset.
Where I am, my laptop connects to one wifi. My iPad won't open that one and insists on using the original wifi. But, although there is still a signal, will no longer actually send/receive. It does find the wifi my lap top connects with but does not, as I say, give me the window for loading the password.
My iPhone works in another part. But my laptop won't!
And there are other people who are using one of two options.
Very frustrating and, to add insult, the link I am currently on is operating at worse than dial-up speed.
One would think an international agency could do better.
Did you already try to reset the devices by holding the sleep and home button for about 10sec, until the Apple logo comes back again? You will not lose data by resetting, but it can cure some glitches.
Also try the suggestions mentioned in this article:
I did the full reset - something which takes minutes (as, indeed does booting my phone when I disembark from an aircraft). No change. I am shortly to try in another part of the compound, where both worked this morning.
It may also be that the working link is not strong enough for the iPad or iphone - my laptop fluctuates between 2 and 3 bars.
Thanks for referring me to the article. I think think there is some good material in it! However, I am reluctant to use too much of it until I am back in New Zealand - I have a few airports to go through on the way and am a bit scared of losing access.
Cheers and regards
