How to fix the iPad’s WiFi problems

ipadThe iPad is already out for quite a while and people are still busy enjoying this new breed of gadget. For some people though, they’re miffed about the unreliability of the iPad to connect to some wireless networks even if they’re already detected.

Are you one of those people? Before you return your iPad or purchase an Apple router, try this solution first as suggested in the Apple KnowledgeBase.

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.

Ensure that both networks use the same security type (WEP, WPA, WPA2, and so on)

If the issue persists, reset your network settings using Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

It has something to do with some dual-band routers (those supporting G and N) which I’ve encountered with my iPod Touch before.
