    Hey guys, I'm having some serious Wi-Fi problems with my iPad mini.

    1. Sometimes it'll connect to Wi-Fi but then drop it's connection. I'm currently using my Wi-Fi on my iMac and if I try to connect my iPhone, it'll connect directly, but my iPad won't seem to connect for some reason.

    I usually have to turn my router off and on again several times and "Forget this Network" many times before it works.

    Any advice on what could possibly be the problem?

    2. Another thing is that I have to constantly have the Bluetooth on so it could connect to Wi-Fi. But I don't understand why. I have the Bluetooth on my iPhone off and it connects just fine to Wi-Fi.

    Any idea on either one?

    Thanks!

    I have no idea why you would need Bluetooth on to make a wifi connection. Very strange. As for the wifi, is your iMac perhaps going to sleep or something? A wireless router would be the best way to connect IMHO. I'd suggest you test it on someone else's wifi network and see what happens if possible...or bring it to Apple and let them check it.
