my iPad isn't accepting the wifi code - states it is wrong password, though it is the same on my iPhone and laptop. Toggled wifi off/on, tried 'forgetting network' and not getting the option. IP address etc fields all blank


iPad, iOS 7, wifi won't connect after 7.0 upgrad

    iOS: Troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks and connections

    Is this happening with one particular network or with all?  Make sure iOS is updated on the device.

     

    Try this:

     

    Reboot ipad by pressing and holding both the home and sleep/wake buttons at the same time until the apple logo appears on the screen, then let go. Then try to connect to network.

     

    Go to settings, Toggle airplane mode on/off. Make sure bluetooth is off. Turn on wif (airplane mode off). Try to connect.

     

    Reset Network Settings

    Go to settings/general/reset/reset network settings. Then try to connect to network.

     

    If its your home router, then reboot router by unplugging for 5-10min. (do this while you're resetting network settings).

     

    If problem persists, then check for firmware updates on your router.(you check router manufacturer support website for downloads and instructions).

    Don't know about all networks, I haven't been in range of any others yet.

     

    This is my home network, and it was - I believe - the OS update to 7 overnight that is a contributing factor. My laptop and my iPhone are both connected wirelessly to the router with the password.

     

    I reset the iPad, reset the network settings again, toggled airplane on/off, turned off bluetooth.

     

    When I go to connect to wi-fi, the error message I get is it is the wrong passcode - the same one I am using for both other devices.

    Have you checked for firmware updates on the router? Have you tried resetting the router?

    Resetting the router did it!

     

    Thanks a bunch
