Customer Question
I had internet problems...

I had internet problems yesterday. All resolved now but I can't get my iPad mini online

Technician's Assistant: Does your network appear in the Wi-Fi list on your iPad?

Only when I press 'other' then it doesn't recognize that network. My macbook pro and iPhone are fine

Technician's Assistant: Which lights are solid and which are blinking on your router?

Please wait. I have to go to the basement and look

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

2adhz is blinking

Hi ,
My name is***** am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.
I will be glad to assist you with this.
This can normally be resolved by resetting the iPads network settings. The reset will only effect the network settings and no other data or settings will be lost.
Follow the instructions below to reset your iPad's network settings:
Step 1:
Tap Settings.
Step 2:
Tap General.
Step 3:
Scroll down to the bottom of the page and tap Reset.
Step 4:
Tap Reset Network Settings.
Step 5:
You will get a prompt warning you that this option will delete all network settings and return them to factory default settings. Tap Reset to continue.
Step 6:
Wait while your iPad resets its network settings.
Once the reset process is done, your network settings will return to its factory default settings. Your iPad will also automatically restart. Then try reconnecting your iPad to the network again.

Does the name of your WiFi network appear in the list of available networks on the iPad?
Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No the wifi name doesn’t appear
Network Technician: Randy IT Tech, Network Administrator replied 4 months ago

okay, did it work after you did the reset the first time?

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No. The network doesn’t come up
Network Technician: Randy IT Tech, Network Administrator replied 4 months ago
Can you carry the iPad to another location and check to see if it will connect to a different wifi?
That will let us know if the issue is with the iPad or the router.
