Why does my ipad2 always drop my wi if connection?

No matter what I do or how close I am to a wi if connection, it always drops.  During surfing or downloading, I always have to reconnect.  I bought this iPad 2 with the hope it was better than pc...but never had this issue with my net book.
What can I do, and what is apple dong to correct this issue?

Look at iOS Troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks and connections  http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1398
Additional things to try.
Turn Off your iPad. Then turn Off the wireless router & then back On. Now boot your iPad. Hopefully it will see the WiFi.
On your iPad go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset network settings and see if that enables you to connect.
If none of the above suggestions work, look at this link.

  • Why does my iPad2 tell me I am not connected to the Internet

    When attempting to launch Safari I get an error message telling me I am not connected to the Internet.  It works fine when about three feet away from the Time Machine but not in my living room some ten feet away even though the signal strength indicator shows full. I have tried reset several times and, again, while in the other room, when I type in my password, I get an error stating that the network cannot be joined.

    I assume that something in your preferences files, maybe
    Macintosh HD:Users:<yourAccount>:Library:Preferences:com.apple.iWork.Pages.LSSharedFileLi st.plist
    (I don't know why the message parser added a space between redLi and st)
    contains references to files stored on the network.
    Try to move it on the Desktop before running Pages.
    An other track may be fonts stored somewhere on the network, not on your machine.
    As Pages use its own cache file, the System may have a correct list of reachable fonts but Pages is unaware of this reduced list.
    The cache file is:
    Macintosh HD:Users:<yourAccount>:Library:Caches:com.apple.iWork.fonts
    Try to move it on the Desktop before running Pages.
    Post here the results of these tests.
    If the problem is really linked to one of these files, I will be able to write a script to run to launch Pages. It will delete the offending file before launching the app.

    Hello,
    Where may I be able to contact and speak with a prepaid representative? Strictly through phone calls? (I am at work 12 hours a day)
    And I apologize for posting in the wrong area - I saw Apple support so I went here.
    I'm almost certain my phone is the problem. I have gone through resetting the network settings a dozen times on my phone, even did it on my dad's. Now my texts are beginning to do the same when I text my fiance.
    Resetting the network settings DOES work -- the problem is it will work for a day or two or for only a few hours - then I'll have to do it all over again.

    Because the owners of the songs have not licensed them for sale in the U.S.
    Apple doesn't have any say in the matter. it's up to the owner of the distribution rights for the music.

  • Why does my iPad2 suddenly keep losing connection on facetime?

    Why does my iPad2 suddenly keep losing connection on FaceTime and tries to constantly reconnect?

    Does it happen anywhere that you use FaceTime or only in your home WiFi network? If it happens with your home network, have you tried power cycling your router? Unplug it for about 30 seconds and then plug it back in.
    Turn WiFi off and on in the settings. Reset the network settings.
    Have you tried any troubleshooting steps at all?

  • TS1398 Why does my iPad2 not display the WiFi icon?

    Why does my iPad2 not display the WiFi icon? I have implemented ALL of the troubleshooting tips, but my WiFi icon is still missing, and it will NOT recognize the internet connection that I know to work on my computer and iPhone.

    Try the following:
    1. Reset the AirPlay devices
    2. Reboot the router
    3. Reboot the iPad
    Note: The AirPlay icon is now in the Control Center

  • HT4623 Hi why does my itunes always say "error contacting server" when i update my iPhone 5 with the iOs 6.1.3 update

    Hi why does my itunes always say "error contacting server" when i update my iPhone 5 (iOs 6.0.2) with the iOs 6.1.3 update?

    Hey Tigergirl17,
    Thanks for the question. If you haven't already done so, you may want to update iTunes to v11.1 (released on Sept 18th). After updating iTunes, you can then update your iPhone 5 to iOS 7.

  • Why does favicon not always download on PC ... whereas it does on Mac?

    Why does favicon not always download on PC ... whereas it does on Mac?

    Hello,
    '''Try Firefox Safe Mode''' to see if the problem goes away. Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most add-ons.
    ''(If you're not using it, switch to the Default theme.)''
    * You can open Firefox 4.0+ in Safe Mode by holding the '''Shift''' key when you open the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
    * Or open the Help menu and click on the '''Restart with Add-ons Disabled...''' menu item while Firefox is running.
    ''Once you get the pop-up, just select "'Start in Safe Mode"''
    '''''If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode''''', your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one. Please follow the [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]] article for that.
    ''To exit the Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.''
    ''When you figure out what's causing your issues, please let us know. It might help other users who have the same problem.''
    Thank you.

    You don't have the typical symptoms that I associate the following issue with (normally the error kicks in just when folks visit the Store), but just in case try gn_id's suggestion from the following post:

  • HT1689 Why does my ipad always says CANNOT CONNECT TO ITUNES STORE even when i got all the internet connections needed?

    Why does my ipad always says CANNOT CONNECT TO ITUNES STORE even when i got all the internet connections needed?

    Check to make sure you don't have your restrictions turned on, which may be preventing your access to iTunes.
    Tap on the settings icon, then tap General, then check to see if you have restrictions turned to ON.  If so turn it off.

  • Why does my iphone keep dropping calls

    Why does my iphone4 keep dropping calls??? It has been doing it for over a week. Does anyone have an answer.... AT&T says they are not having any problems and I have done everything but restore my phone.

    Unfortunately, this has plagued the AT&T iPhone since the original model came out. It's most likely a dead zone causing the issue (I have the sameissue from time to time). You can also get a Micro Cell from AT&T, it's basically just an access point that allows you to pick up a cellular signal at home or work (where ever you set it up).
    To eliminate any hardware issues, make sure you're on the latest build of the OS (4.3.3 for the AT&T iPhone 4) - I noticed you're still on 4.3.2. If you don't have a case, I suggest the Apple bumper or any case that covers the metal bezel on your phone, that will help as well.
    Also, you can "reboot" your phone. To do this, hold down the metal sleep button on the upper-right corner of your phone until the "slide to power off" slider is displayed, then power off the phone. Wait a few minutes and turn it back on.
    Hope this helps!

  • Why does everyone at my work loose their internet connection when I update Adobe Cloud Products?

    Why does everyone at my work loose their internet connection when I update Adobe Cloud Products? We are on a 20mb broadband connection and there is around 20 people using computers at my work but when I start my Adobe Cloud Product update or when I try and download my Adobe Cloud Product everyone at my work looses their internet connection and so do I. But the update keeps downloading and installing.

    I am sorry FooWingLi but the difficulties you are describing sounds more like a local network configuration issue.  I would recommend working with your I.T. department to investigate this matter.
