  • Wifi problems with ipad 2 wifi only and ios 6

    Hi, loaded ios 6 last night and wifi worked fine at home. Came into work where I have logged on fine before: Now, I connect to wifi and it connects, a login screen pops up, and then says "success". Then there is then nothing! The login screen doesn't go away and wifi icon disappears if you cancel the login screen - any ideas please?

    Additional things to try.
    Try this first. Turn Off your iPad. Then turn Off (disconnect power cord for 30 seconds or longer) the wireless router & then back On. Now boot your iPad. Hopefully it will see the WiFi.
    Go to Settings>Wi-Fi and turn Off. Then while at Settings>Wi-Fi, turn back On and chose a Network.
    Change the channel on your wireless router (Auto or Channel 6 is best). Instructions at http://macintoshhowto.com/advanced/how-to-get-a-good-range-on-your-wireless-netw ork.html
    Another thing to try - Go into your router security settings and change from WEP to WPA with AES.

    Note - When troubleshooting wifi connection problems, don't hold your iPad by hand. There have been a few reports that holding the iPad by hand, seems to attenuate the wifi signal.

    If you carefully follow all of the instructions in this tip and none of them restore WiFi then your radio chip has failed and you need to get the phone replaced by Apple.

        Hey there nemesyssoft!
    Congrats on the new iPad! It's a great device! We certainly want you to be able to use the device as soon as possible. If I may ask, were you still having issues connecting to the data network at all? Activation can take be a bit longer the initial time. Please let us know if you still need assistance.
    Thanks!

    ‘iPad is disabled’ fix without resetting using iTunes
    Today I met my match with an iPad that had a passcode entered too many times, resulting in it displaying the message ‘iPad is disabled – Connect to iTunes’. This was a student iPad and since they use Notability for most of their work there was a chance that her files were not all backed up to the cloud. I really wanted to just re-activate the iPad instead of totally resetting it back to our default image.
    I reached out to my PLN on Twitter and had some help from a few people through retweets and a couple of clarification tweets. I love that so many are willing to help out so quickly. Through this I also learned that I look like Lt. Riker from Star Trek (thanks @FillineMachine).
    Through some trial and error (and a little sheer luck), I was able to reactivate the iPad without loosing any data. Note, this will only work on the computer it last synced with. Here’s how:
    1. Configurator is useless in reactivating a locked iPad. You will only be able to completely reformat the iPad using Configurator. If that’s ok with you, go for it – otherwise don’t waste your time trying to figure it out.
    2. Open iTunes with the iPad disconnected.
    3. Connect the iPad to the computer and wait for it to show up in the devices section in iTunes.
    4. Click on the iPad name when it appears and you will be given the option to restore a backup or setup as a new iPad (since it is locked).
    5. Click ‘Setup as new iPad’ and then click restore.
    6. The iPad will start backing up before it does the full restore and sync. CANCEL THE BACKUP IMMEDIATELY. You do this by clicking the small x in the status window in iTunes.
    7. When the backup cancels, it immediately starts syncing – cancel this as well using the same small x in the iTunes status window.
    8. The first stage in the restore process unlocks the iPad, you are basically just cancelling out the restore process as soon as it reactivates the iPad.
    If done correctly, you will experience no data loss and the result will be a reactivated iPad. I have now tried this with about 5 iPads that were locked identically by students and each time it worked like a charm.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Try it and good luck. You have nothing more to lose if it doesn't work for you.

  • Having problems with ipad mini and Siri. Works sporadically, will work once and then the second time not. Worked all the time with the original Mailbox app. Then started doing the same thing when I installed the new update so wondering if it is software?

    gianlucastr,
    an EXC_BAD_ACCESS exception type with a KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE exception code typically has one of two causes — either a programming error, or faulty RAM. If this was due to a programming error, then you can check to see if there’s an applicable patch to your version of Outlook, or wait for the next Mavericks update from Apple, to see if either of these would fix this problem. If it’s due to faulty RAM, then you can try running your MacBook Pro’s Apple Hardware Test to see if it can detect any RAM problems. (It’s not able to detect all possible RAM problems, so no error detected by the AHT is not a guarantee of non-defective RAM.)

  • I'm having problems with iPad 2 and my smart cover.  The attachment seems to be depolarized and it moves around causing the device to toggle and flash like its coming on or shorting.  Anyone having problems?

    I'm having problems with iPad 2 and my smart cover.  The attachment seems to be depolarized, trys to connect using the back (curved) edge of the magnetized bracket.  When I try to attach it, it moves around causing the device to toggle in a way that looks like the camera flash.  Anyone having problems? Help.

    Update. My carrier says the antenna of my iPhone 4s is not so good as the one in the iPhone 3G. They can't solve the problem. Their signal is too weak for the 4s at places I spend most of my time. Not the answer I expected, but I'm free to choose an other carrier. Hope this will help.
    This was not the correct answer, I accidentially clicked the button..

  • Dear apple community, now I have some problem with iPad(The New iPad 4G). 1st, start from I got it, it really difficult charge. 2nd, very and very hot with 3G or Internet using. And more, some problem with wifi.

    From Me, THE MAHACHAK to Apple Company
        I think, the apple company are producing and sell only their own country or their ownself, not over the world. And in the other hand, I want to ask Apple Company about their market policy as marketing strategy or size of marketing. How about it? How did you think? Only your own or for world. I like one word as MARKETING IS WATER. Where can't water go? Such as my small country have a lot of people are using apple products a lot as iPhone, iPad, iPod and apple laptop. Cambodia is my small country with much rich families. They can use a good product or high class product, high tenology. Most of products is Apple. But they always have many bad comments and bad problem with Apple products. WHY? The problems such as Lock code, cann't conected with other, hard to find or buy, no Safety, no warranty world wide, wifi, charger, hot during 3G conected, ...etc. hope, these my own idea is looked for all the Apple customers around the world. Please, text me back. Waiting back.
    Thanks and Regard

    Greetings rusfrco,
    After reading your post, it sounds like you are experiencing an error with app updates app on your iPad. You may want to consider restarting the device first, and then resetting if that does not work. This article provides detailed instructions for Restarting, and Reseting:
    Turn your iOS device off and on (restart) and reset
    How to restart
    Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on the top of your device until the red slider appears. Then drag the slider to turn your device completely off.
    After the device turns off, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button again until you see the Apple logo.
    How to reset
    You should reset your device as a last resort and only if you can't restart it.
    To reset, press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo.
    Thank you for contributing to Apple Support Communities,
    BobbyD
