    I can no longer get wifi although I could before. The wifi is working as my daughter's ipad still connects, as do all our other devices. Switched netgear off a week ago (ipad working then) but from when I have switched on netgear the following morning cant connect to network, circle repeats endlessly and then numbers for ip address, subnet mask and dns appear temporarily before being lost.

    Some pertinent notes:
    a few weeks ago re-did netgear connection to all devices as connection was lost, since then all computers, printers and 2 ipads working just fine.
    then a week ago switched netgear off(to stop my son using our entire allowance and being reduced to diallup AGAIN) my ipad 2 connected just fine before, but from switching netgear on the following morning hasn't been able to connect, although other devices are working including my daughters ipad 2
    phoned netgear but they cannot help
    phoned apple call centre, closed, but discovered on support website that ip starting with 169.254 aren't supported, notice that mine(for the few seconds it is there) is 169.254......which is supposed to be a problem??? whereas my daughter's is 192.168.....

    Switched wifi on and off, switched ipad off and on, rebooted ipad which I have never done before after googling how to do it, terrifying but my photos were still there!!!, reset network settings and then reset all settings.

    I am a beginner and doing all this was quite traumatic, still cant connect and have now joined to try to sort this out, newbie!!!

    Silly question, but does the WiFi connection work if you go someplace with a hotspot you can access?

    I have the same router and have had a similar issue in the past that turned put to be the router itself. Other wifi devices would connect, but my iPad wouldn't no matter what I tried.

    If you can't connect elsewhere, you probably need to have the iPad looked at.

    Welcome to our forums from Brisbane Australia.

    First regard the net gear. I would like you to try this turn off all devices connected then power off the modem router for at least 10 minutes. Restart the modem wait untill it connects then turn on the iPad if ip is still the same hold down the home button and on/off wait for white apple logo and release the buttons. If all okthen turn on other computers and printers please let me know what happens ok.

    I bought a new netgear router when I got my iPad 1 two years ago. It has worked very well for me. One suggestion that I haven't seen here is to use the forget this network option to re-install your network connection.
