Ways to connect iPad back to the internet

It just doesn’t stop there when your iPad doesn’t connect to the internet even if the Wi-Fi is working. Don’t panic. Here are a few ways to get your internet working!

  1. Restarting your iPad

If you’ve tried turning the Wi-Fi on and off again and it doesn’t work, try to restart your iPad. It may be possible that the iPad software crashed which could be a reason why your internet isn’t working even when the Wi-Fi is working. You know how to turn your iPad off and on so go ahead and give it a try.

  1. Restarting your router

The problem may not necessarily be with your iPad. It may be possible that the internet router isn’t working properly and not allowing your iPad to connect. Try unplugging the router to turn it off and then turn it on again. This may actually work in case the problem was with the router and not your iPad.

  1. Forget Wi-Fi network and then reconnect

When you connect your iPad to a Wi-Fi for the first time it saves much data about the network and its working along with ways to connect to it. If something in the setting of your Wi-Fi has changed, forgetting and reconnecting will give your iPad a new start to save the details. This fresh start may work to connect your iPad back to the internet.

  1. Fixing router issues

If your Wi-Fi still doesn’t connect, there is a possibility that there may be a problem with the router. You may need to contact your internet service provider to help you with fixing whatever issue your router is having.

  1. Repairing your iPad

If there is no issue with the router, or if any of the above methods fail to work, you may need to give your iPad for a repair. Possibility is that your Wi-Fi isn’t able to connect and there is a hindrance in the signals because your iPad’s antenna is broken. If your iPad isn’t connecting to Wi-Fi or having Bluetooth issues, there is a high possibility of an antenna issue. You can contact the Apple store and avail their services to get your device fixed in the best possible way.

You see, it isn’t all that tough getting your problem fixed. All you need is a little patience to get to the root cause of the issue so you know what you’re dealing with. Then, accordingly repair will be required.
