    I-PAD Mini fails to connect to WIFI home network using U-Verse. Several laptops and other devices have no problem connecting using the key for a WPA2-Personal secured connection. I have tried automatic and manual, (192.168.1.254), connection but I-PAD Minis fail to connect, (two different I-PADS Mini). Any help/suggestions would be appreciated & thanks. I also spent about an hour online with I-PAD support but they were unable to supply a resolution.

    G'day Travis and welcome to the forum.:)
    A couple of things you could try if you have not done so already:
    1) in the first instance turn off/ uncouple your WiFi/modem unit... Wait about 30 secs. And turn back on.
    2) go to Settings>General>WiFi and tap on your Account name with your internet provider (next to blue arrow). Then tap "Forget this Network" and then re-enter your ISP's required info that you had to do when you first set up your internet connection. Hope that helps.

    IPAD Mini & U-Verse WIFI

    I am unable to connect IPAD Minis to my U-Verse WIFI. All other devices connect without any problem after the PASSCODE is entered, Laptops, Kindles, Iphones, Chromecast. 3 IPAD Minis fail to connect. Any help and or suggestions would be appreciated. The IPAD Minis connect to Time Warner WIFI. Thanks

    I finally figured it out. I had to manually enter the MAC address into the RG, (remote gateway), for the U-Verse router. The RG is accessed through IP 192.168.1.254
