Resolving iPad Wi-Fi Issues

iPad Help, Tips & Tricks
// April 6, 2010

One of the biggest bugs I have found with the iPad so far, is occasionally the iPad is unable to rejoin my Wi-Fi network on iOS 9.0.

I have tried some suggestions from Apple and the only way I have been able to get the iPad to rejoin the network is to reset my wireless router.

I would recommend you try to reset the network settings on the iPad first by going to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

If that doesn’t work reset your wireless router. Most of them have a reset button you hold for 10 seconds.

If you have a dual band router you can try this to keep the problem from recurring;

  • 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).

Apple has acknowledged the Wi-Fi problems and has a knowledge base article with some recommendations. They have also stated that there will be a software update addressing this issue, the iOS 8.3 Wifi issue is worst.
