iPad can’t see WI-FI network. The main reasons
What to do if iPhone (iPad) doesn’t see the Wi-Fi network? The iPhone has poor Wi-Fi reception.
When iPhone 4 has poor Wi-Fi reception is a fairly common situation. Fortunately, owners of newer models from Apple. iPhone 6, 5 and others have to deal with this problem much less frequently, but it also occurs with them sometimes.
Experienced users know that it is quite rare for iPhone 4, 5 to have poor Wi-Fi connection. But, nevertheless, everyone wants to have access to the Internet, so you need to know how to fix problems with Wi-Fi Internet connection on iPhone 4, iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and other devices from Apple. In this article we will talk about it, but especially about solving problems with Wi-Fi on the four, t.к. It occurs more often on this device than on others.
This is the most common cause of the problem when the smartphone does not want to connect to the network wirelessly. And sometimes not only iPhone 4, but iPhone 6 for example, does not want to get wifi and catch the network signal. If you encounter such a problem, you should first try connecting to the network with another device, and if everything goes smoothly on the new device, it means that the problem is not with the network but with the user’s gadget.
To overcome the difficulties of connection in this case, you need:
1 Restarting iPhone 4, iPhone 6 or other Apple devices. On which the problem occurred. 2 Enter your password and make sure that it is correct. Sometimes the user inadvertently enters the wrong password, and then when the correct password is entered the situation is safely resolved at this step. 3 Press “Forget this network” button and then connect to it again. 4 Check the firmware for updates (the operating system on your iPhone should be the latest version). 5 Performing a reset of absolutely all settings of the phone.
If after completing the above steps all the same and the Wi-Fi icon on the device does not show the network activity, it means that the problem is deeper and lies inside the device. In this situation the user probably cannot avoid visiting a service center.
