64GB 3G Wifi problem?
Anyone else having a problem connecting to their wifi network?
Mine looks like it is connecting but I'm getting a "Safari can't open the page as the device is not connected to the internet" error message when I try to browse.
When I check the DHCP settings it has a funky 169.xxx.x.x IP address and isn't showing anything under router.
I have a Belkin F5D8236-4.
Anyone have any ideas?

please dont think I am insulting your intelligence but is it possible that it is picking up a different wifi signal (neighbor or w/e)???
is that definitely YOUR network? If so, try to hard restart you modem (not just flipping it on/off/on).
iPad 16 gb (3rd gen) LTE
No problem. Yes, it's my network's name (funky name my brother came up with). I click on it and it prompts for my password, which I enter. It then shows a checkmark next to the name of my network and even shows the little signal icon in the upper left corner of the screen.

Tried that and tried to reset my ipad as well.

I'm probably going to annoy you...so, like the last poster said, please don't get cross. What I'm about to say is probably what you know already and it's that problem that you're trying to solve.
You say that you iPad has a '169' IP address. As you almost certainly know, this is an invalid IP address - which is why you're not connected to the Internet.
How to change a 169 IP Address | eHow.com
The article above discusses this problem. OK - I know what you're thinking - 'Yes, I know I have an invalid IP address and that's why I'm not connected to the Internet and ****that's the problem I'm trying to solve*****'
OK - sorry - I'll go away and think about it some more.....
It's 5am in the UK - sleepless night...must get a life...
No problem. If I knew everything, I wouldn't be here. I definitely understand the 169 address is bs but as of yet I've been unable to get rid of it.

Make sure you're typing the encryption passphrase (password to connect to your wi-fi network) exactly as it's spelled. If there are any capitals in the password it has to be typed in exactly the same.
Some devices will act like they're connecting if you get the password close but, will not connect.
Check to see if you've enabled other security settings on the router. I use MAC ID restrictions in addition to WEP encryption to ensure there are no unwanted connections to my network.

Part of the problem is there is no set standard for N routers and new technology like the ipad and even new pc's , smartphones, gaming. boxes etc can have issues so at the end of the day buy a good quality router or modem router like netgear 600 and correctly set the security and this generally resolves the issue plus providing faster transfer of data.
