Customer Question

I recently moved 10 days ago. Comc?ast set up my wifi, as of 5 days ago I am unable to receive emails or connect to the interenet on my ipad or iphone, but can connect on my laptop. I have contacted Comcast and they tell me that since I can connect on the laptop it is an apple problem. I don't think so as the box for the wifi is not lit up. Can you help
