    Wifi problems with both iPhone and iPad

    Hello,

    I have one iPad and two iPhones. Every 10 minutes or so, they lose connection with my router.
    I need to go to settings and turn off and on wifi to be able to have internet again.

    I have an Hitron BVW 3653 that I must use because it's specifically design to my service provider (ZON Portugal).

    Do you have any idea on now to avoid this situation? It's really anoying!!!

    Well, there is a rather awkward way. You get another router that you know is compatible, hook it into one of the ethernet ports on your main router and set up a separate WiFi network for your iDevices.

    I do something similar. I have an old AirPort express. I plugged it into my iMac's ethernet port and shared my internet connection to it. Took a little fiddling to make it work, but works great.

    Its a shame you cant get a new router, but check you have all the correct settings needed using apples recommendations:

    iOS: Recommended settings for Wi-Fi routers and access points

    Good luck, I know how much of a pain it is, had the same with a Belkin N+ router and I ended up buying a different brand!! Life is good again!

    First, unplug your router/wifi device(s) and leave them off of at least 8-10 min. Then, second - Try this, go into SETTINGS - GENERAL - NETWORK, then chose the line with your network name on it and then press the blue arrow on the right, then tap the FORGET THIS NETWORK button at the top of the page. Then setup your network again. OR, you can try to tap RENEW LEASE and see it that helps. The first option above is the best one to try, as it resets everything in the network settings.

    Things to try on iPad for wifi problems.From Apple forums.

    1) - Set router to fragmentation=2048, RTS=512 an
    02) - Disable router 40Mhz, use only 20Mhz
    03) - Change router from 5 Mhz to 2.4 Mhz
    04) - Disable N router standard
    05) - Use WPA or WPA2 (2 seems better) instead of WEP
    06) - Use TKIP instead of AES or BOTH security in router
    07) - Disable bluetooth in iPad
    08) - Check nearby routers for channel conflict
    09) - Router firmware update
    10) - Reset/cold boot router
    11) - Reset network settings on iPad
    12) - Cycle iPad power off and on (fails on wake from stby)
    13) - Redownload adn reinstall the 4.2.1 update
    14) - Set iPad DNS to 8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4 (Google DNS?)
    15) - SetiPad autobrightness to off or away from lowest setting
    16) - Assign iPad a fixed IP address (don't use DHCP in router)
    17) - Turn off "ask to join networks" on iPad
    18) - Turn off notifications iPad
    19) - Adjust QOS (google for settings)
    20) - Change the passwords for your main and guest networks in Apple Extreme and update to latest firmware

    Thanks for letting us know. I was still trying to figure out which way to point you. Glad you are up and running again.
