    Hi, does anyone have issues connecting with a mini 4? I bought one on Saturday. The wireless is weak and does not connect to known good WiFi. Flaky at best.

    I had a first generation mini and the wireless was poor also. Wondering if this is a thing with the mini?

    I am in the return period so this issue can be easily resolved if wireless is a known issue.

    All the other Apple products connect easily. The router is AE so compatibility should not be an issue.

    Thanks!

    Was it new? I have had a mini 4 and the wireless worked quite well.

    Had a mini for two years. Never had a WiFi issue ever.

    You need to get it replaced.

    Thank you for the responses. When I get home tonight I'll power cycle the network in case there are gremlins.

    I was not able to access the I'net in the car but that may be an issue for the dealer to resolve. I didn't try other devices in the car.

    Since mini 4 has excellent wireless I try to rule out other possible issues before asking for a replacement.

    Thanks again for the help. Much appreciated!

    No problems with my Mini 4. I'm using it right now, two floors above my router.

    My Mini 4 has no issues with wifi. Do you have the same wifi router as when you had your first mini? If so it sounds like more of an issue with your router. If you can try it on a friend's wifi etc.
