As iPad 2 released on the market, many iPad 2 users may come across various iPad 2 WiFi connection problems like poor wi-fi network connection, weak signal strength, fluctuating signal and variable wifi speeds. Here are some possible troubleshooting solutions that might get your iPad internet connection started.
Ensure that you have the latest version of the firmware for your router installed so that it is operating at full capability prior to connecting your iPad to a home network.
Not a joke. Seriously. For some iPad owners, increasing screen brightness prevents the failure to reconnect after waking from sleep. According to Apple, “If brightness is at lowest level, increase it by moving the slider to the right and set auto brightness to off.”
Set your router to operate solely on the greatest standard available, most routers can now operate on 802.11n, but a, b, and g, doing the same with the wireless devices on your network. The Wi-Fi iPad arrives with support for 802.11n, so if possible, set your router to match that standard.
This one comes straight from Apple, “Create separate Wi-Fi network names to identify each band. This can be done easily by appending one or more characters to the current network name. Example: Add a G to the 802.11b/g network name and an N to the 802.11n network name.” Odd, but it may work for you.
If you have either WPA/WPA2 encryption or WEP currently deployed in your home network, switch to an alternative encryption setting which may correct your connection issues.
These are just a few tips for you, and hope they can help you.
