    Ive been using my Verizon hotspot for wifi for about 5 months with no problem. Now all of a sudden my ipad says its unable to connect to the network. I've tried turning off the hotspot and ipad with no luck. Please help!

    Have you tried to "Forget the Network" and see if that works. When you do that, you will need to enter your hotspot password again to connect.

    Also--welcome to the forum!! :)

    Thanks Skimonkey!

    I have tried forget the network, still giving me the same error when I put in my password. I know it's not the hotspot because I've logged into it with other devices just fine.

    Hi and welcome to iPF!

    Try this:

    Go to Settings - General - Reset - Reset Network Settings. You'll have to set up network settings again afterwards. Perhaps it will solve your problem.

    Tried resetting the network settings and my hotspot comes up, but when I enter the password it still gives me the unable to join the network error. I've checked to make sure I've entered in the correct password. Is there some other setting I need to check?! I took my ipad up to Starbucks and was able to use the free wifi there just fine. This doesn't make any sense!

    Reset your iPad - press both Home and Power button at the same time until the Apple logo appears. Then try again.

    It won't delete anything from your iPad, it's a perfectly safe procedure.

    No, it's equivalent to rebooting your computer.
