    Hello all,

    I just purchased an open item 3rd generation iPad from Best Buy on Saturday to upgrade from my iPad 2. I was visiting a friend in Columbus, OH at the time and it was working perfectly. Now back home and at my office in Cincinnati, it won't connect to any wireless networks. It is saying that the password is incorrect when I know it's not. I even selected "forget this network" on my iPhone 5 and typed in the password again just to make sure I had it correct. How can I fix this problem of my 3rd generation iPad not connecting to any wireless networks? Do you think there is a problem with the iPad itself? Thanks in advance.

    P.S. My iPad 2 NEVER had this issue and both that and this iPad are running iOS 6.0.1

    There have been reports of iPads with hardware related wifi problems. And given that you bought it open box, that could easily have been the reason for return. I'd return it.

    First delete all your WiFi networks, turn off iPad, turn back on. Re-enter WiFi networks.

    If that fails...

    Back up and do a system restore via iTunes.

    If that doesn't fix make an appt w/ Apple Store Genius.

    I'll try that now, well at least the first part since I don't have iTunes available right now. Thanks.

    I did not state it, but I have done that multiple times. But, thank you and I appreciate your response.
