ipad mini wifi problems
I was having wifi issues with my mini. I took it to the apple store and it worked there. I bought an airport extreme for home router and no everything is working including the ipad mini. When I travel, everything except my ipad mini can connect to the hotel router. I also tried many other hot spots with the same result. This problem seems to be limited to the ipad mini. My wife has 1st gen ipad and it connects fine when traveling. My iphone4s and macbook pro also connect without issues. Looks like I have to look at picking up an iPad 2.

Ipad mini wifi issues
Thanks for the reply. I was not able to use wifi at home until I replaced my net gear router with an apple router. I tried connecting this morning at a friends place, who has a linksys router. The ipad finds the network just fine. I get an error indicating "unable to connect to network linksys". I tried using other network and entering the ssid in the name field. The router is set up to use wep. I set the security field to wep and entered the password. I still get the same error message. I will try in town at a hotspot that doesn't use a secure network, but I recall getting the same error there as well.

I do have dhcp selected and http proxy set to none.
Thanks for any suggestions as to what settings are wrong.,
