    Will try to keep this simple...

    My router is upstairs
    My laptop stays upstairs as I no longer have battery, so I leave it on power when needed.
    My iPad is used mainly downstairs because of above situation
    But.....when downstairs, I keep losing connection, and have to carry it towards stairs, and it re-connects

    Any ideas please, AND I must stress, this did not happen with laptop, so router is fine, I live 1/2 mile from a BT main exchange

    Have you thought of getting another router that puts out a stronger signal ? Your iPad is likely more sensitive to the wifi signal strength and has trouble with a weak signal.

    Have you ever suffered issues like this before with your ipad? Did you once have good ipad connectivity and its just suddenly gone stupid, or has it always been this way?

    Just downloaded iOS6, and have not received any emails since. I've rebooted, checked settings (although nothing was changed) but still can not receive emails???

    Remove your e-mail program and re-install it.

    the first 2 replies>>>

    I think you are right about signal, I have discovered since posting that my o2 router is 5 years old and an updated model is in the post.

    Yes, it has only recently started happening

    thanks to both

    Apple removed the old Youtube app. You can download one from Google in the App Store.

    If you can receive but can't send, it sounds like a configuration problem with your email settings. Is this on a single account or on several accounts?

    Please be careful about the language. This is a FFF. Thank you.

    Apologies about my frustration blurt. I haven't changed anything in email settings since I bought this a year ago. Issue is I can SEND, but not receive. At the sametime I downloaded iOS6 to iPad, I also loaded my iPhone 4S, and have no sending/receiving problems...
