Hello Community


I need to operate a iPad in a WLAN network were no internet connection is available. There is only a router, a printer and my ipad. The security denys a internet connection. So, the iPad connects to the WLAN and after a few seconds the connection to the wlan drops. I tried several times. I use IOS 6.0.1.


The thing is if I connect the router to a internet conection the with the same configuration and the same hardware the wlan connection is ok and stays up.


Anyone else has this problem or does anyone has a soluton?


Best Regards


iPad (3rd gen) Wi-Fi + Cellular, iOS 6

    I ran into this issue a couple of years ago when we had a very strict internet policy.  I worked with Apple and Cisco on the issue and basically found the resolution on my own. 

    Baically, Apple/iOS devices will need to check in with Apple when connecting to Wi-Fi.


    We had blocked on our strict Wi-Fi network and the iPads would connect and when we attempt to use the Wi-Fi, it would drop out.  After a week or so of troubleshooting, we saw the website block logs and there were thousands of hits being blocked. 


    If you have no internet at that site, I do not know how you can get it to work.  Possibly if you use an internal DNS server and make all requests hit an internal site.  If I recall, it was just hitting a dummy webpage with a mesage on it like "Success"
