    Hi, My iPad 2 has been working just fine, then it suddenly stopped seeing my wifi router. The iPad appears to be functioning normally, except for this problem (I can't get on the internet). My router is working OK (I've posted this from my laptop, using the same router). Is it possible that the 'aerial' in my iPad has just malfunctioned? Is it a recognised problem, and can it be repaired? Any advice would be gratefully received. Many thanks!

    Agree w/ the above - power recycle both your modem and router, i.e. power off (or plugs pulled), wait a little while and then re-power the modem first followed by the router - post back your results. Dave :) P.S. welcome to the forum!

    Yes, see if resetting your router does the trick.....there may also be some updates available for your router....go to the manufacturers website to se if your model does have any updates pending.
