iPhone 5 and iPad (3rd gen wi-fi) I am using my iPhone as a personal hotspot for my iPad. I turn on the hotspot feature on the phone, then connect to the hotspot using the iPad. I tell the iPad to remember and automatically connect to this network. If I allow the iPad to sleep for more than a minute or two the connection is lost. If I wait the connection does not automatically reconnect. Instead I have to do the following: * open Wi-Fi settings on the iPad * open Peronal Hotspot settings on the iPhone * wait for iPad to see the network (takes 2-3 times searching) * occasionally I have to choose the hotspot as the network connection, but most of the time it reconnects automatically I have to do this sequence of steps every time I come back to my iPad. The iPad and the iPhone are within 2-3 feet of each other most of the time with both of them sitting on my desk. I can't tell if the problem is the hotspot feature or one of the devices. I had the problem occur occasionally while using it with a Mac Mini (mid 2007), but that computer kept the connection alive for longer periods of time. Though when I did have a problem the steps were pretty much the same. Why doesn't the iPad stay connected? Why do I have to have the iPhone on the hotspot settings screen before the iPad sees it? Has anyone else experienced these connection issues?
