    I am doing my best to keep up with technology. I have been doing well with my iPhone and my iPad, until the most recent upgrade. My iPhone is okay, but I keep losing my wifi and my iPad is very slow. Is there anyway to remove the "upgrade". I' m off to see if others have encounter this problem. iPad 2

    You could try resetting your iPad -hold the sleep and home buttons until the apple appears. For the wifi, some have said that when they turn their network off (go to settings - network - forget this network) and sign in again it helps to stabilize things. I'm sure you'll find many other tips here that others have found.

    Try resetting your router and also have a look to see if there have been any updates available for it also.

    Thank you, Leelai, I will try that. I have just noticed that several times when I switch to settings to re establish my connection it says "VPN not connected". I have googled and I have not set up a VPN. I did buy an iPhone 4S but everything was working fine before the upgrade. This correspondent is new since the last iOS upgrade I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you again
