    Go to settings, then select your wifi click the blue arrow so you can see your ip address etc... Click static and setup the correct ip.

    Just got this problem this morning... :(

    WiFi is turned on. It connects to my network and I get a full signal, but I can't Safari doesn't let me browse anything, cannot download my mails and cannot access my facebook apps. It returns NOT CONNECTED TO INTERNET.

    I've also tried to reset my ipad's network settings and resetting my routers. This doesn't help :(


    It seems like the iPad doesn't get an IP-address from DHCP.

    Anyone managed to solve this issue?

    G vs N

    Is there a way to reset the Ipad to connect to a G router? The Apple router I have at my house is an N and I connect fine. At work the router is a G and I cannot connect. Anyone else run into this???

    Your iPad can't connect at "N" speeds to a "G" router. The speed switching is done automatically in response to what kind of router it sees. If you can't connect at work, it is more likely a security issue than a speed issue.

    [I'll leave my 'ranty' post here rather than delete it... BUT...note a few posts further down that I resolved my [personal] situation by: 1) powering off the iPad, 2) rebooting my wireless router, then 3) powering up iPad. Both then shook hands again gracefully...]

    Today I find myself running into this same blasted 169 DHCP issue :(. I have tried *nearly everything* suggested down through this thread (did someone suggest whipping the iPad out the window?...I don't recall, but I'm feeling it!). I didn't try buying a 'ban Apple airport extreme router'??? And I did not download latest router drivers. But...c'mon...this flaky issue as you'll read below all the sudden happens against ALL wireless routers I'm encountering. THAT is not a fault of a specific router. It has to be that the iPad is at fault somehow.

    I first experienced it at my corporate office, where when we identified the mis-assignment of the 169 IP addy, we manually entered all the goodies. While that proved fine for the iPad while at work...as soon as I got home I discovered it was flaking out the same way mis-assigning a 169 IP to my home wireless as well. Note: since one of the suggestions on this thread was to dump/reset all network settings, obviously the manually keyed items for the work network are chucked now (I'll deal with that in the am back at the office I suppose...)

    I can't understand why folks keep pointing to it being a problem with a specific router (when time and again through this thread / folks' reported troubles), its evident that the iPad is faultily assigning an IP address for the routers.

    GOD, but this is frustrating. I googled the problem on my home PC (which works peeeeeeerfectly fine on my wireless router btw), to see that this was apparently a somewhat heavy issue back around April & May...but I'm not coming across many current posts/threads covering this same turf.

    I just purchased this iPad new from BB last Thursday. Its wireless has been working FLAWLESSLY...at work...at home...and visiting a family member's home/wireless network. I *can* report that yesterday afternoon it was extreeeeeeeeeemely slow to connect to web pages while at the office (perhaps a precursor to the results of today?). But when I left work, I don't recall having connected the iPad to the internet for anything at the house. I do recall that, having removed some unwanted apps from the iPad and from iTunes...I'd opted to sync before going to bed. And once the sync completed, I connected it to power to charge up overnight. That was that...then this am the no-go IP 169 reassignment ceeerap at work. Seriously...is there no dead-on known solution for this???

    Any additional / newly known solutions are MOST welcome!

    Thanks in advance,
    Dave

    I have no idea what was posted here :confused:. It is the one thing reading down through various posts that I have *not* tried... While I'm guessing the 'b' in 'ban' was a typo, the fact is, such a purchase wouldn't resolve my work router issue...or any other rogue (aka hotspot) router I encounter. I mean, wireless...should...work.

    Did you power down reset the iPad? Fully power off then wait at least 30 seconds, power up? Try the reboot, hold power past the slide screen until apple logo comes up?

    Maybe new iOS will help...should be out this weekend.

    Did all that BrennB....


    ....BUT!... I guess I fibbed earlier about trying nearly everything. I decided while the iPad was in a powered off state (not sleep...powered off), to reboot my router and let it come up fully, then I powered up the iPad and let it shake hands. No 169 IP issue...connectivity perfect again! I'll try this at the office tomorrow as well (if arriving to work I experience this issue there as well).

    Sorry for the rant :( but gosh that was frustrating (given it had carried on over the course of the afternoon/evening. Let's hope this is behind me :thumbup::)
