    After my over-the-air iOS6 update, my iPad was lagging, so I performed a restore. When I was setting up after the restore and connected to the wifi, it connected, but it said there was no connection. I restored again, and the same error appeared, but disappeared after a couple of seconds. I then set up my iPad.

    It probably sounds stupid, but do I need to perform another restore? I just hate the thought of my iOS6 install being messed up or something.

    What do you think, or shouldn't there be a problem with my iPad/iOS6?

    THANKS.

    Use it for a few days and see if its settled down...you shouldn't have to constantly restore it to get a reliable wifi connection. Assuming your router / modem are okay constant restoring shouldn't be needed and you might have a hardware issue that Apple need to look at.

    It worked fine with iOS5, and as I said, it worked on the previous restore, I just kept getting a pop up saying there was no connection, when I was surfing online.

    Could restoring itself mess anything up? Or does it just essentially make it a new iPad?

    So what do we reckon? iOS6 is on my iPad properly now?

    Well, if things were fine before, I'd try a complete setup as new....Backup to the cloud but treat it as an out of the box setup...I know it's tedious, but if that wont nail it nothing will.

    Well, after I restored the last time and connected to the wifi, the error message I was receiving appeared for a couple of seconds, then disappeared. I then set up my iPad, and am now downloading apps via the wifi connection.

    I was just concerned after I saw the 'error' message, in case my iOS restore had gone wrong - is that likely - or should I just forget about it since everything appears to be working fine?

    Ah okay thanks man.

    I think it was just a glitch, or an issue with my wifi, because the error hasn't appeared since, and everything is working great, so I'm back using my iPad. Wheyy.
