Due to having forgotten my Dynalink modem installation password I had to get help from Dynalink to get connected to wi-fi at home. One of their technicians duly got me connected, with a wi-fi address in the wi-fi-connection box and a tick against that address name. He also gave me a new password. Unforotunately, he did not ask me to try using the icons as, since then, although I still get the connection without being asked for a password, none of the icons work. I know I am definitely connected to wi-fi as the icon shows at the top of the iPad and clicking on, for example, apps shows as "downloading" but it does not and the NZ Herald icon does not work, as it did at the library. I am wondering if the padlock symbol showing next to my wi-fi address means I should be asked for a password?
All very frustrating - help!
