iPad 3 running great for years on 7.x . Updated to 8 and have had nothing bu problems with the wifi connection. After 8.1.2 the ipad prompts me for my wifi password but tells me it is wrong. Disabling wifi security does not solve the problem. I have 2 Netgear WNR2000v3s and one generic FIOS router. Just got back from the Apple store after an appointment with the "genius". He told me to unplug my router for 10 mins to make sure they forget the iPad and then rest network settings then it will join. Knowing that I had already done this after reading for hours I treid to get him to explain to me in anything other than analogy to locks and keys and other garbage he insisted that he has never had someone come back after doing this. Of course this didnt work as I already did a full restore, stood on my head, rebooted , flushed the cache , juggled oranges and all other manners of things to get this to work. I has tried to join a store a few doors down from the apple store but he said "oh yea that wifi is broken, I use it sometimes". Huh?? Came home , did what he said to all three routers , didnt work. I would agree that there does not appear to be a problem with the hardwre but something in 8.x broke wifi and I suspect the fact that it wont join anything but an apple airport is no coincidence. Wont work at starbucks, friends house, my work. No where where there is not an apple wifi router. So now I have an iPad 3 brick. Has anyone ever gotten their iPad to work who has been in my situation? Im tempted to just sell it to Gazelle and let them fight with apple.
