Is anyone else having issues with 6.1.3 and the wifi connenction?  I updated to the latest iOS on my iPad 2 and my iPhone 4S and I an now unable to connect to wifi at my house.  I have not tried different wifi networks because I haven't left home yet but I am unable to connect here.  Anyway have a suggestion?  I tried a hard reset and I reset the network setting but that did not solve the problem.  I can see the wifi networks but I cannot connect to them.

iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1.1, 64GB

Some things to try first:


1. Turn Off your iPad. Then turn Off (disconnect power cord for 30 seconds or longer) the wireless router & then back On. Now boot your iPad. Hopefully it will see the WiFi.


2. Go to Settings>Wi-Fi and turn Off. Then while at Settings>Wi-Fi, turn back On and chose a Network.


3. Change the channel on your wireless router (Auto or Channel 6 is best). Instructions at ork.html


4. Go into your router security settings and change from WEP to WPA with AES.


5.  Renew IP Address: (especially if you are droping internet connection)

    •    Launch Settings app

    •    Tap on Wi-Fi

    •    Tap on the blue arrow of the Wi-Fi network that you connect to from the list

    •    In the window that opens, tap on the Renew Lease button

Unable to Connect After iOS Update - saw this solution on another post.


Note - When troubleshooting wifi connection problems, don't hold your iPad by hand. There have been a few reports that holding the iPad by hand, seems to attenuate the wifi signal.




If any of the above solutions work, please post back what solved your problem. It will help others with the same problem.
