Hi,

Did you try to reset the ipad's network settings, or reset the network router yet?

Thanks,

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

not sure how to do either of these things, can you walk me through?

Expert:  James replied 3 years ago.
Certainly, let's do both as our first troubleshooting step.

Please disconnect the router from the wall power for one minute, then reconnect, and wait a couple of minutes for it to come back online.

On the iPad, go to the Settings app (looks like a gear).
Go to General.
Touch Reset.
Touch Reset Network Settings.

Let the iPad do the reset and reboot.

Now try to connect again - any better?

Thanks!

did connect and reconnect


no setting icon...seems to be stuck on sign in page-is there a way to bring it back to square 1?

Expert:  James replied 3 years ago.
Push the Home button (the one with the square on the bottom).

If that doesn't work, hold the Home and Power button together for a full minute.


What happens?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

holding for 1 minute returned I pad to opening page which simply reads


"I pad" No "home" icon was available

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


cannot get to that page-log in to ipad is requiring a password to enter the system. is there a way to get past that?

Expert:  James replied 3 years ago.
Please tell me exactly what you see on the screen, including the message. Thanks.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

upon turning on the ipad there is a title screen which says "Ipad" and has a slide bar at the bottom

Expert:  James replied 3 years ago.
Okay, good.
Slide the bar from left to right.

What happens?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

done-goes to "start setup" w/no other choices

Expert:  James replied 3 years ago.
That's fine, it happens the first time. Go ahead and continue with setup. Let me know if you get stuck, and if so, what you see.

gets stuck at "choose a network" selected users internet account-requests password-correct password entered-will not accept- any way around this?

Expert:  James replied 3 years ago.

There should be a SKIP button to skip this step.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

forces a choice of network followed by request for password-only available choices are cancel, enter password or back


 

Expert:  James replied 3 years ago.
What happens if you hit Cancel?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

goes back to "choose a network"

Expert:  James replied 3 years ago.
If you push the Home button, it doesn't exit to the home screen?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no. have found correct password-hallelujah-but now is saying "no network connection"

Expert:  James replied 3 years ago.
Okay.

Turn it off, and then back on (hold Power untill you see the request to turn off).

Go through setup again, and use the correct password.

Does it connect?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

went through all steps...stops at "choose a network"

Expert:  James replied 3 years ago.
Hi,

I'd like to start a remote support session with you. This mean I'll be able to look at your screen together with you, and help you personally.

Would that be ok with you?

Appreciated!
