    First ever ipad.. Not impressed.WiFi Problems.Help?

    Okay so i am a studying school student with a part time job so acquiring the money to buy this was not easy.
    I Finally brought one. took it home to charge.
    1st problem: Wall adaptor charger does not work at all, not a sound not anything.
    Luckily my laptop has a usb specifically for charging.
    2nd problem ( most important)

    I can connect to the internet fine Via WiFi but after about 30seconds it stops. and it disconnects my whole network, so that even my computer can no longer connect to the internet. I restart the the router and try again. same problem. I am sick of browsing threads after threads trying to find a fix/cure/solution to this problem. I am using a NETGEAR WGR614 v3 router.
    I dont want to know if you have the same problem i want to fix this.
    This is my first apple product. Ive had it 3 days and i'm seriously pissed off. I am considering returning my iPad and never buying apple again.
    What can i do?

    I am an IT tech and though I am not familiar with that router, it does sound like the router is the problem. First - you can connect. Second - when you lose connection, no device connects. The iPad is not changing anything in your router.

    Suggestion: If you want a quick, easy way to verify......try using the iPad at a either a friends WiFi or a public WiFi (plenty of them around). You will probably find that it works at those just fine.

    One issue that is quite common, make sure that the type of WiFi security is a common type. The most common for home use is: Security = WPA- Personal, and the Encryption = TKIP. I have seen those change to other, less common, standards. That can work as well if the connecting devices are changed to match.

    Apple devices are usually the easiet to network of all the wireless devices. I think you will be very happy once this is worked out. Good luck.

    Why do you expect a sound from your wall charger? If I have put my iPad to sleep, it will briefly wake up and show remaining battery life but makes no sound. If it is not in sleep mode it doesn't show anything but the battery life icon will start showing an increase. Usually the wall charger will charge the iPad faster than a computer will.
    I have no answer for your router problem. My Netgear works great.
    Welcome to this great group.
    You'll really like this device when you get your problem solved. I hope you haven't got one of the few badly manufactured iPads - but even Apple is not perfect.

    I agree - it is quite possible that a bad example slipped through. If thats the case, they WILL take care of you and things will go smoother next time. See what you find out and go from there.

    I completely agree. Test your iPad on some other Wi-Fi router and see if it works correctly.
