Some iPad users are facing difficulties / issues in connecting or reconnecting to wireless / Wi-Fi network. Effected users are complaining about iPad not detecting Wi-Fi hotshot, showing week signal strength, reconnecting issues etc. As Wi-Fi is the only source to connect iPad with internet world, so Apple has acknowledged these issues promptly and given following recommendations to fix them.
Under certain conditions, iPad may not automatically rejoin a known Wi-Fi network after restart or waking from sleep. This can occur with some third-party Wi-Fi routers that are dual-band capable when:
- Using the same network name for each network
- Using different security settings for each network
If you encounter this issue, try the following:
- Create separate Wi-Fi network names to identify each band. This can be done easily by appending one or more characters to the current network name.
Example: Add a G to the 802.11b/g network name and an N to the 802.11n network name.
- Ensure that both networks use the same security type (WEP, WPA, WPA2, and so on)
If the issue persists, reset your network settings using Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.
Note: Always ensure that your Wi-Fi router firmware is up to date.
So if you are facing issues with your iPad's Wi-Fi, try given suggestions, hopefully your problem will be rectified. If your problem persist, you can submit a query on Apple's official support forum.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
