IPad slow in re-connecting to a known WiFi network

Hi all,
I have noticed that my iPad is sometimes slow in re-connecting to a known wi-fi network (my home network).
I have been doing some online research and it seems like it's an issue apple acknowledged.
Normally it connects right away, other times it takes about 4-5 seconds.
In rare occasions it takes up to a minute...
Is this normal?

The only times mine does not instant connect is when it has been away from the network for a period of time...and then it seems like only a second or two. Safari opens immediately but mail can take several seconds to figure out the connection. If I stay within the router signal, and sleep the iPad, when it wakes it is on the network with no delay.
Hope this helps.

  • My ipad 4 does not connect with my home wifi network

  • New Ipad mini will not connect automatically to home WiFi network

    I use a range of Apple devices at home, IPhone 4, MacBook Pro and IMAC.
    They all see and connect automatically to my WiFi home network. I never experienced any difficulty with my DLINK router.
    I have received a couple of days ago my new Ipad mini (Wifi+ cellullar), running IOS 602, but not equipped with a SIM card.
    The device never connects automatically to the home WiFi network.
    I need to open the Settings app, chose the WiFi submenu and select manually my "dlink" network. Then only can I work with my network.
    I need to perform this each time I leave my home or I restart the device.
    As I am experienced with Apple devices I noticed this behaviour right away and can confirm that the settings on the Ipad mini are the same as the ones of the IPhone 4. I am certain that this is a bug.
    Any suggestion to overcome this major frustration?
    Patrick

    Some things to try first:
    1. 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.
    2. Go to Settings>Wi-Fi and turn Off. Then while at Settings>Wi-Fi, turn back On and chose a Network.
    3. 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
    4. Go into your router security settings and change from WEP to WPA with AES.
    5.  Renew IP Address: (especially if you are droping internet connection)
        •    Launch Settings app
        •    Tap on Wi-Fi
        •    Tap on the blue arrow of the Wi-Fi network that you connect to from the list
        •    In the window that opens, tap on the Renew Lease button

    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.

  • IOS devices can't connect automatically to known wifi network anymore (only manually)

    Hi there.
    Just changed my old wifi router belkin 54g with a new sitecom 300n X2 (with 802.11n); after the change all my iOS devices (iphone4, ipod touch and ipad2) are not able anymore to automatically connect to my wifi network.
    The network is recognized and after inserting the password the devices connect perfectly to the network, but if I switch off the wifi interface and then i switch it on again the devices don't connect to the known network automatically, I have to tap on my network in the list to join it, even if password is not requested anymore (just once, when connecting for the first time). My Macbook and other Android devices are automatically connecting fine.
    I tried to forget the network and reconnect to it, I did a reset of the network stack under Settings->General->Reset, I did a device reset but nothing worked.
    I even tried to limit channel bandwidth of the router to 20 Mhz (suggestion found in a forum) but no success, and I also changed the wifi channel to avoid interference, but again no success.
    Any help will be really appreciated.
    Thanks a lot and regards.

  • HT1695 ipad Mini is not connecting to my known wi-fi networks

    My iPad Mini is not connecting to my known wifi networks and keeps telling me that I'm "Unable to Join."  What can I do to fix this problem?

    I doubt that your problem is identical. RJ4778 is having problems connecting to known networks (those to which he has connected  before).
    It would be best if you started your own thread and detail what networks you are talking about. Give details.

  • After a day or two I can no longer conect to a known WiFi network

    After a day or two I can no longer connect to a known WiFi network without rebooting the router. The same thing happens with both routers I have (SMC and a Verizon) and when using a shared connection from my MacMini. This happens with each of FOUR iPhones I've owned and my iPod touch. So... yeah. I'm guessing this is either a software issue or some really odd signals are in the are in my area of New Jersey.
    Anyone else having similar issues?

    have you deleted the account and re-added it?  Have you done a reset or restore as outlined in the iPhone user guide?  What troubleshooting have you done?

  • My iPad2 no longer connects to my home wifi network but there is no problem connecting to other saved wifi networks. Currently using iOS8.0.2. with storage capacity of 12.2Gb but only 147Mb free. Disconnecting the router and rebooting the iPad worked

    My iPad2 no longer connects to my home wifi network but there is no problem connecting to other saved wifi networks. Currently using iOS8.0.2. with storage capacity of 12.2Gb but only 147Mb free. Disconnecting the router and rebooting the iPad worked briefly as a temporary fix but not anymore

    You could try this
    Temporarily disable security on your home network
    See if the iPad connects
    If it does then reset the security - with the same or different password

    I have just updated the i06 software for my iPad and it will not connect to my home wifi network - all my other devices are able to connect to my wifi network.
    I have attempted all troubleshooting actions suggested and nothing has worked. I have restored my iPad network and factory settings - Please help - this is frustrating me

    you have to set up your router to solve th problem. first find and write down the ipad mac address.
    then log on to your router using your laptop or any device that can connect to router at 192.168.0.1 in your web browser. please check out my posting about how to resolve the wifi connection problem.
    i think the ios6 update has reset the networking but if you set up the router then you should not have the same problem any more.

  • TS4209 Macbook Air with OS X 10.8.2 not automatically connecting to known wifi network after sleep

    Macbook Air with OS X 10.8.2 not automatically connecting to known wifi network after sleep

    If you are using WEP as a security on your router that is why it won't connect. WEP is so old school and very insecure that Apple has made it so there WiFi cards won't connect to WEP. It might as well be wide open. You can try that. Take all security, WEP/WPA/WPA2, off your router and see if it connects.
    If it does then use either WPA or better WPA2.

  • My ISP requires a http login. I can use the iPad fine if I am logged in on a PC connected to the same wifi network, but if I login on safari on my ipad, the connection drops after some time.. any workaround?

    I understand that the OP failed to do research. But then, I wasn't replying to the OP. I was replying to Chris. I have Verizon. I can talk and use data at the same time with my Droid Maxx. Therefore, the problem is not just with the network. It would be technically possible for an iPhone to do that on Verizon/Sprint if Apple had chosen to use a different chip, such as the kind other phone manufacturers have elected to use.
    Of course, this is probably all irrelevant to the OP's issue. It was merely a point of clarification, especially for those people who are used to being able to use both voice and data at the same time on Verizon. When they switch to an iPhone, they are often surprized at the limitation.
    Best of luck.

  • IPad will not connect to any other wifi network besides iPhone hotspot.

    I have 3 iPads and until recently they all worked flawlessly using a mediocre wifi signal. One of them now will only work with my iPhone hotspot and will not connect to any other wifi network. I have rest it removed the cover and it still does not work. Please advise.
    Thanks

    Try this Method:
    Go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings (NO DATA WILL BE DELETED)
    Reconfirm it again when the notification pops up and wait for the phone to reboot itself

  • Trying to re-join a known wifi network

    I have issue sometimes with my iPhone or iPad to rejoin a known wifi network.
    For instance each morning I am connecting my iPhone to a public transport free wifi. My phone recognises and connects to the wifi however it cannot connect to the internet, because the safari browser is not launched automatically as it should.
    I have tried to "forget the network" and try again but that did not work. I have switched my phone off and on again, no result.
    I have same problem in hotels when I use the hotel wifi. When I come back to hotel and try to reconnect, wifi is connected, but web browser does not launch therefore I cannot access the hotel website to register and accept terms and conditions for instance.....
    Should I bookmark the website when the web browser is launched the first time when I register, so that I can access the website again if it does not launch automatically ?

    I stay in various hotels each month throughout the year and have occasional problems logging on to the local wifi.  I consulted an Apple Genius staff once about this and it was suggested to reset the network settings.  I tried this and it does help although I forget about it after a few months of using dozens, perhaps hundreds of different wifi hotspots.  Once you experience problems, go to General in Settings, hit Reset at the bottom then hit "Reset Network Settings".  After a few seconds all stored settings regarding past wifi connections will be erased.  By starting fresh like this you may have better luck.

  • My iPhone 4s will not connect with my home WiFi network. I have ios6 on my phone. I have updated my IMac and my MacBook Pro with iOS 10.8.2. Anyone have any suggestions? It was connecting with no problems prior to updating my two computers.

    My iPhone 4s will not connect with my home WiFi network. I have ios6 on my iPhone. The connection was working perfectly before I updated my IMac and my MacBook Pro to ios 10.8.2. I have had ios6 since I purchased the phone a couple of months ago. It searches for a network and finds them, but when it asks for my password, it will not accept the password. Have never had this happen before.
