My wife is having problems with her iPad 2. We are traveling the US and many places we eat or stay does not work with her iPad 2. By this I mean her iPad 2 does not see the hotspot that her iPhone 4S, my iPhone 5, my iPad 3, my MBP retina and her HP laptop will see and connect with perfectly.


I have tried:


Turn Off her iPad.

Rebooting / resetting her iPad.

Go to Settings>Wi-Fi and turn Off. Then while at Settings>Wi-Fi, turn back On and chose a Network. <== Network cannot be seen



Her iPad 2 however will still not see the WiFi.



No luck with any of these:

    You may want to check with your cellular carrier for the Hotspot. I know that some providers/plans/devices will only support 5 devices connected simultaniously. you have listed a totall of 6 devices including the ipad 2 in question.
