iOS 6.0.1 Is there still a wifi connect problem? Jan 2013
I am brand spanking new to the world of Apple. Just got myself a nice Ipad 4.
Been learning all the great things I can do with the pad, impressed I am.... However, there seems to be a problem, not with the hardware , but rather the iOS, in particular 6.0.1.
I can connect my wife to my home router,fritz box, if I stand within 8 m of the device, however if I head down the passage, waiting for my d-link range extender to take over, the connection drops, the pad can see the network, keeps trying to connect, lovely little spinning circles and all, three bars connected for 5 seconds and disconnects, over and over again.... My windows laptop has no problem, three bars fixed,
Go to work, sitting 4 m from the fritz box at work, connecting,nope ,disconnecting,connecting,disconnecting,pretty circles, round and round we go..... Cannot connect to the work router, laptop wifi, no problems, running like a Boeing,
Partner at work, has an iPhone, exact same problem, reckons he had no problem connecting before the upgrade to 6.0.1'
Simple deduction Watson, the problem has to be a wifi hiccup problem with iOS 6.0.1'
I had thought that this was solved on another thread,but alas 'twas not...
I have upgraded both routers and extender firmware,
I have renewed the lease,
I have turned airplane. Mode off and one , this worked for about 8 minutes,
I have reset my wifi settings,
I have rebooted the pad,this also worked for a bit then pad decided to start searching for network again,
I am now extremely frustrated,upset and hugely disappointed that Steve Jobs was not alive to see this, I am sure he would have kicked somebody,s arse from here to the moon...
If I read all the other opinions, I ain,t alone, I sit gnawing my nails, when experts tell me, that they have no problem, seems that e way it should work, the ipad should just move from network to network after they have been saved, seamlessly,grrrrr!
Question: Is there still a wifi connection problem with iOS 6.0.1 that still needs to be patched by Apple inc?
Think I am goins to eat my dinner in front of my tv now and use my new ipad as a tray!
