    Hey JCM27,



    Thanks for the question, and welcome to Apple Support Communities.


    The following article provides troubleshooting information for the symptoms you described:


    iOS: Troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks and connections



    Unable to access the Internet while connected to Wi-Fi


    - If you are using a public or commercial network that requires a login or subscription, see this article for more information.


    - Check to see if you have a self-assigned IP address:

         1. Tap Settings > Wi-Fi and locate the Wi-Fi network to which you are connected. Then tap (>).

         2. If your IP address is 169.254.xxx.xxx, see this article.


    - If you do not have a self-assigned IP address, see if other Wi-Fi devices on your network have Internet access.

         - If they do not, consult with your network administrator or ISP for further assistance.

         - If they do, reset network settings on your device by tapping Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

                        Note: This will reset all network settings including: previously connected Wi-Fi networks and passwords, recently used Bluetooth accessories, VPN and APN settings.
