    We are in a hotel which provides free wifi. The hotel gave us their wifi password. My friend has an ipad 2 with ios7 and when he tried connecting to the wifi network, he was prompted for just a password. He put in the password and it worked. I have an ipad air and when I try connecting to the same network, I am prompted for a username AND password. I don't know what's the username (??? what is that? my friend doesnt need to enter a username) so I left it blank. And i put in the password. Then I get an error that I am unable to connect to the network.

    Can someone help?

    Could be several things.

    First off, are you sure you are on the same network?

    Secondly, without knowing how their wifi is configured, it is possible they are set to issue one password per room. I've never run into that but it is a possibility.

    Short of that, go back down to the front desk and ask.

    Do you think it's funny to post a reply like you have pavlinka616, with all the astericks and expect a response?

    You are not adding anything to the thread.:mad:
    The thread starter It'sMyPrecious has a serious question - keep your rants in your head.

    Ipad air not connect to wifi

    To say something positive, I have had same problem with two devices trying to connect to same wifi network close together. Either turn off one, or move one away from the other. Even a corner of that hotel room.

    It isn't likely these two guys are still in the same hotel room..the thread died on Jan 4 until Beavis and Butthead dragged it up for his rant
