    Hmmm. The only time the list should disappear is when Wifi is turned off. I'm assuming you checked that already.

    Another thing you might check is to see if airplane mode did not checked by accident.

    At this point, I would do all the basic resets for the iPad, starting with clearing the multi task tray (double click the home button, the tray opens at the bottom, hold an icon until it wiggles, then tap the red minus sign on each app in the tray.)

    Then, I would shut down the iPad (hold the power button until the red slider comes up, then slide off). Restart and see how that goes.

    If that does not correct the issue, I would escalate to a hard reset, and after that, a restore.

    If none solve the problem. A trip to an Apple Store might be he next option.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Is your 'Ask to join Networks' tab set to ON in your settings? dhewson has the right advice and hopefully this will fix your issues.

    I'll just state a reset here in case you don't know. - Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. Let us know how you go.

    Please do not post twice on your issue as it divides the information given and makes it confusing for members to follow. It is also against our Forum Rules, your other post has now been deleted.
