    Hi,

    I just installed iOS 6 on my iPad 2 and now I cant connect to my wireless network. It tries but then it fails. I've restarted and reset the ipad, still nothing. I even clicked the "forget this network" and gone through the network settings again and still wont connect. Anyone else have this problem? and knows how to solve it?


    thanks

    Same problem here. Installed IOS 6 today on my iPad 2, and now it won't connect to network. My IMAC is working fine from the same modem. I've done everything I've ever heard of. Anyone solved this yet? Many thanks for any help.

    Obviously it takes awhile for it to find the network. Like everyone else, it just started working.

    Had the same issue, forgot the network, and all worked. Don't know if it was just timing or the "forget network" helped.

    Try resetting the network settings. I had this problem with my iPhone and it works fine now.

    Same here,but it may have been something on apple's end. Seems that it won't complete the network connect until it contacts apple for some reason. That's was the stupid page not found message. Once the apple service was back, the connection the Internet would complete.

    Seems like a "call home " before it allows wifi to complete connecting. Probably sending all kinds of info to apple on where you are and such.

    It found the wifi, even gets its dhcp reservation, but seems until it calls home and gets a reply it won't turn on the wifi all the way.


    Easy way to test, disconnect your Internet connection and see what happens. If this is the case, it would be bad if you wanted to just connect to your local wifi,as it would not work.

    I guess you are right. I actually did a restore thinking there was a problem with my update. I reset my router...just glad that its resolved now.

    Anybody notice that the AppStore seems to load slower???

    Anything connecting to Apple servers are probably going to be slower than normal due to the high volume of traffic.

    There was a problem on Apple's end. They fixed it, and things started working again.

    I have read through all the replies and am experiencing the same issues. Not able to connect and running very,very slowly. I am proabably old enough to be your mother an am struggling with technology. Could someone please explain what I need to do to achieve better connectivity and speed? All our other IPADs and Macs work fine. Just this one that I "upgraded" doesn't work. Is there a way to remove the upgrade?


    Thank you

    Strange as it seems, it can still be the router. Restart your router and see if it helps. Routers can get confused about individual devices.

    While the router is restarting, go ahead and go to Settings > General > Reset and Reset Network Settings.

    This will ensure that the router and iPad get off to a clean start.

    It's not a bad idea to check with your router's manufacturer's site and see if there are any firmware updates for it. This can affect newer products as well.

    Good luck.
