Ipad mini won't connect to my home network

Ipad mini won't connect to my home network Reply Topic

My new ipad mini won't connect to my home network (net gear 7550). It will connect at other networks (lowes, neighbor's, etc) but just not on mine. My modem is connecting all the other devices in my house and AT&T has tried to reconfigure every possible setting on the modem that they could! 


Need advice, please!!


Also, the modem is new - only 5 weeks old - and the other devices are working fine with it (2 wireless printers, 4 MacBooks, two ipod touches, two iPhones, and one ipad).

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

Unable to Connect After iOS Update - saw this solution on another post.



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 any of the above solutions work, please post back what solved your problem. It will help others with the same problem.
