I have said in the past that one of the purposes of this blog was to record the process of digitalization at the school I teach at. I haven’t written anything about this for a while and in the meantime have run into an unexpected problem. If there is anyone out there with a similar problem, or better still has an idea how to sort it out, I’d love to hear it.
It’s a wifi connection problem. I am working with an iPad Air, now running on ios 7.1.1. When I’m at home, and only at home as far as I have seen, it won’t connect to the wifi. It will occasionally load a page when I first switch it on, but then it grinds to a halt. The signal looks strong, the blue bar starts to fill as a page starts to load, but then it stops.
Meanwhile everything else still works fine with the wifi, my Dell laptop, three android mobiles and two ipod touches. The strange thing is the wifi did work with the iPad for the first month or so that I had it.
I’ve been trawling the forums looking for solution, tried all sorts, but it would seem that I am not the only one with this issue…..which is kind of comforting, but with 200 or so pupils starting to work with iPads at my school next year I find myself wondering if I’m going to be the only one with this problem.
