Has anyone else discovered a problem with the new iPad Air and networks? My issue is if I happen to be connected to a network and I get out of range of that network and I want to join another network that I have joined many times before (ex. my sprint hotspot), the IPAD seems to connect to it, but never gets an IP address. Almost 100% of the time, if I need to switch wi-fi networks, I have to reset network settings. Of course, then I lose all networks and VPN settings. I have tried all of the easy stuff, turning off wi-fi, turning it in, forgetting networks, etc. this issue happens whenever I have to switch. I could be out using my hotspot, get home and turn off the hotspot to pick up my home network and I will have to reset. I could go from home with my ipad in my bag where it was working fine, get to a restaurant and have to reset to use wi-fi.
Is it just me? Any tips? I have about ten more days and if this isn't resolved, I will have to take it back as I use it for work. I have even tried adding a static IP for the networks I know and that doesn't even work.
Well, the iPad Air has only been out a few days, but I haven't seen anything massive yet. When there's a problem, you'll see threads here with 100 or 200 comments.
You really need to take it back to a Genius. They'll either say, "oh you forgot to set this"; or they won't say a single thing, and exchange your iPad.
Get a new one. Make sure it works in the store first.
