    Wi fi won't turn on

    Hi everyone, I'm a new iPad user and I was hoping someone could tell me why my wi fi turned off by itself and now will not reconnect or turn back on. I've tried to turn it on manually and still no luck.
    Is this common?

    The very same thing has happened to me this evening, about the time you posted. I left it for a wee while but it didn't reconnect, but the problem was solved by turning the iPad off (not just to sleep - hold the button down till the power off slider appears), then restarting. I was connected when I turned the iPad back on.

    I've had it happen once or twice before, but not often.

    Yes, I've seen the wifi radio stick off before, and as Jockscrap mentioned, a reboot of the iPad normally sorts it out quickly. Most likely it just means the process has hung or crashed. Nothing to worry about. The iPad is generally very stable with IOS, but sometimes an app or process will have a funny moment, just like any other device.

    I'd be very disappointed if my iPhone 4 ends up being more reliable than my iPad 2. Even though rebooting is a quick fix, I expect a lot more than what I'm seeing so far. I hope I don't regret purchasing this iPad instead of waiting for the 3rd edition.

    I've had it happen to me maybe twice or three times since I got my iPad at the end of May. I really don't think you need to worry. I was given mine as a birthday pressie from my lovely DH. I hadn't asked for one, desired one or thought i'd use one, but fortunately my DH knows me better than I do! Since getting my ipad, it never leaves my side, I use it constantly for everything and I couldn't imagine life without it now. Enjoy!

    HAppens the same to me When my ipad 2 is in standby than I wake it up the Wifi is connected but with no internet.
    I need to turn wifi off and then on again. this is very annoying I read is something abouth the firmware.

    I did a test I turn off the Wpa in the router and change to No Security and it seems fix the problem. Looks like is some conflict with authetifications.

    try to do that and let me know...

    ok I tested it put it to sleep and wake it up several times and now I dont have any problem with wifi conectivity. I had to change it to No authetification so now my router has no password at all and to have some save I hide the SSID
    I think for now is the solution

    Adz - good luck w/ your Wi-Fi issue, hopefully just an infrequent fluke - rebooting the iPad is often a good first step w/ 'stuck' or 'frozen' apps - you can also 'close' an individual app by double-tapping the home button, holding the 'offending' app until the jiggling starts and closing the app -

    Also, from the statement above, I don't believe that you've lived long enough w/ the iPad to yet regret your choice - every day will likely bring you a better understanding of the device and the numerous and widely variable uses of it - enjoy!

    I had same problem.
    I solved it by turning off and than turn on again. Try to do same.
    If you get this error again and again - try renew system or go to service.
