    Hello all, I hope that you can help with this issue.
    First a list of the equipment involved

    iPad - Wifi only. Used to run the Remote app.
    Apple AirPort Express
    Dlink D615R wire less router
    PC - running Windows Vista - Media Edition - wired into the router
    running iTunes

    This is what happens, using the Remote app on the iPad I reach out and touch the iTunes on the PC, then send the music down to the Airport then to the stero. All works fine. I power off the iPad (enough music for one night) next day power on the iPad, wait for the wireless connection icon to appear, then try to use the Remote app to reach iTunes. Message - Cannot find library, iTunes is still running on the PC.

    The iPad can surf the net. To regain access to the iTunes I either have to power cycle the DLink router, or the PC. Has anybody else had this problem? And if yes how did you solve it?

    Thanks:eek:

    OK - I'm sure you've tried this but....just in case.....


    The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-

    Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
    Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

    Thanks but it doesn't work

    Okay, I powered off my iPad,waited 10 minutes then powered on. I connect to he internet, but cannot connect to the PC. So it seems to be a PC or router issue.

    Back to the drawing board

    OK - sorry to have put you through all that 'reset' and 'turn off' iPad trouble and then to get nowhere. I guess you've tried resetting the PC too, so I'm starting to run out of ideas. If you come across any more 'clues' don't hesitate to get back in contact - 1½ brains are better than one (mine is the ½ on a good day!)
