    Hi


    We have 2 ipad 3's & are using AOL BROADBAND with netgear router my problem is that I keep losing my wifi connection if I switch wifi on & off it works fine but connection will fail again at some point & I need to switch wifi off & on to get it back. This is the same on both iPads. My laptop desk top & ps3 work fine with no issues.
    Does any one have any ideas what may be making this happen.

    Cheers

    I've moved your post to the iPad help forum, where it will receive more attention.

    Been told this may be a problem with the netgear router I am using, can anyone confirm this. Don't really want to buy a new router if it is not going to solves the problem

    If you suspect the router, try resetting it to see if that helps, before thinking of replacing it.

    It's also worth checking that the router firmware is fully up to date, check on AOL's website or google the model of your router (adding the words firmware update) to get details of how to do this.

    Your WiFi connection may not have enough bandwidth to stream the movies properly.

    Are you using your WiFi connection for other things at the same time as you are attempting to watch your streaming movies?
