    Help! I'm having this terrible issue occur and nothing I have done has helped. Little back story, I like betas :D I was going through the 11.2.5 betas just fine with no problems until the last one, 7 or 8? Then I started having this issue connecting to my home wifi network giving me the 'incorrect password' message and finally 'unable to join the network'. 11.3b1 came out shortly after so I didn't give it much thought and just upgraded to that, and of course still had the issue, so I'm like hmm.

    Downgraded back down to the official full version of 11.2.5 and am still having the issue, which is super disappointing. I've done all the usual troubleshooting steps; resetting networking settings, resetting all settings, reset and deleting all content and settings on all the software version from the 11.2.5b-11.3b and back to full 11.2.5. No dice. =[

    All other devices in household are working fine, though only my iPhone 6s is also running beta versions, but that never experienced issues and it's currently on 11.3b2.

    I'm out of ideas and have tried every workaround I've found online. Would love and appreciate any and all help! <3

    You may have to restore using iTunes and setup as new. This usually fixes issues like you describe. If it starts working again you could then try to use a backup to restore it to get your apps, settings and data put back on the device. Hopefully nothing is corrupt on your backup.

    Yes, I've done restores to each of the versions mentioned through iTunes (it's the only way I can manipulate my iPad since I can't get online). I get the issue on all current iOS versions from 11.2.5 through 11.3b2 now.

    Now, I'm getting another problem. I'm trying to downgrade back to 11.2.5 because maybe I missed something, but now my iPad restarts in the middle of the restore process back into the Home screen and then iTunes says it can't be found -_- so now restoring isn't working at all either. idk what to do.

    Also, a little background; I am living in Costa Rica and don't have complete access to my modem as it's a rental and I don't even think the owners have access to it, but I can try and see. Nothing has changed recently except upgrading the speed on the internet which didn't require any hardware/software change on my end, one through the ISP and the password was kept the same for the wifi network and all other devices are working as expected.

    I'd be curious to know whether you are unable to connect to any wifi access point (which would tend to suggest a hardware problem), or whether your difficulty is just with your home access point.

    Yes, I guess that is a next step I can try. I just don't normally take my iPad out with me. I also live in Costa Rica, other wifi networks are sometimes hard to get into haha but I'll try that next. Not sure what I should be hopeful for either way lol
