Any way to force a WiFi connection?

    I have had this happen every once in a while, when attempting to open Safari, it just indicates the iPad is not connected to the internet. I can't find a way to force a connect. Sometimes it pops up and has me type in the security code, and when that happens, I always get connected.

    What causes this loop I seem to occasionally get stuck in? I'm in that situation know, so had to jump on my PC to post this.

    Thanks!

    Did you check to see if you're on the latest iOS (3.2.2)? That contains some bug fixes. Now, that being said, I think that there are still some bugs in the WiFi code because I occasionally have the same problem.

    A quick fix is to turn WiFi off and then back on again in settings.

    How do you download the latest OS - I have an older version.

    Just D/L iTunes plug in your iPad and you should see the check for update button.

    Thanks all - I know have 3.2.2 loaded. Let's see if it goes better with the WiFi with the updated OS.
