It doesn’t let you open any browser as it just says your iPad isn’t connected to a network. I tried forgetting the network and re-joining, renewing the lease, and even tried fiddling with the http proxy by switching to manual or auto.
So basically I can’t figure out why the iPad 2 doesn’t work with some WiFi networks, has anyone else run into this issue or know a work around? Is there some limitation on the types of Wi-Fi networks or encryptions that have to be used for the iPad 2 to connect to them?
The odd thing is my wife was able to connect her iPod touch to a wi-fi network and my own iPad 2 couldn’t join to the same Wi-Fi network, nor could her iPad 2 so it isn’t just a simple issue with my own device.
I will have to do some more research and see if this is a common issue or there is something at else I have to do here that I am missing.
