If you’re trying to use the Internet on your iPad but your iPad keeps saying not connected to the Internet, you must be frustrated as this does not allow you to access any Internet powered services on your device.
Sometimes, the iPad does not connect to Internet even though WiFi is on. Issues like this have become common for many iPad users and the following guide shows some of the ways you could fix the issue for good.
Method 1: Rejoin a Network to Fix iPad Not Connecting to Internet Issue
Sometimes, it may occur that your iPad is not fully registered on the network it has been connected to and re-joining the network may resolve the problem. The following shows how you can re-join a network so you don’t see the no Internet connection on your iPad message anymore.
- Open the Settings menu from the main screen of your iPad and tap on Wi-Fi. It will open the Wi-Fi settings menu on your device.
- When the Wi-Fi settings page opens, turn the toggle for Wi-Fi option to the OFF position and it will disable Wi-Fi on your device.
- After a few seconds, turn the Wi-Fi toggle to the ON position to enable Wi-Fi on your iPad. Then, tap on the network you want to connect to, enter in a password if required, and you will be good to go.
Your iPad should now be connected to the Internet and you should be able to access all the Internet powered apps.
Method 2: Reset Network Settings to Get Internet to Work on Your iPad
If you have iPad WiFi connected but no Internet, then it’s likely there’s an issue with the network settings on your device. If you are not sure what settings to change, you can reset all the settings to their default and the following shows how to do that:
- Launch the Settings menu on your iPad and tap on General to open general iPad settings screen.
- On the General settings screen, you will find an option saying Reset. Tap on it and then tap on Reset Network Settings on the following screen to reset all the network settings to the factory ones.
Now that the network settings have been reset to default, you should not face any issues connecting to the Internet on your iPad. Give connecting to the Internet a try and it should work.
Method 3: Hard Reset iPad to Fix Internet Issue
If your iPad says not connected to Internet but it is, the issue likely lies in the OS of your iPad. One way to fix the issue is to hard reset your device which can be done by following the following steps. You are suggested to do this method only when the above methods do not work for you.
- Head over to the Tenorshare Any iOS System Repair (ReiBoot) website and download, install, and launch the tool on your computer. Ensure your iPad is connected to your computer using a suitable cable.
- From the main interface of the Any iOS System Repair (ReiBoot) program, click on three-horizontal lines at the top-right corner of your screen and select Factory Reset iPhone. Although it says iPhone, it should work for an iPad too as both the devices use iOS as their operating systems.
- On the following screen, you will find a button that says Fix Now. Click on it to begin fixing the OS on your iPad.
- You can either import the firmware of your device if you have already downloaded it or you can use the Any iOS System Repair (ReiBoot) application to download it. Once that part is done, you can click on Start Repair to start repairing your iPad.
- The app will begin to repair your iPad and you should see the following on your screen. Within a few minutes, your iPad should be repaired.
Your iPad has now been reset and you can now try connecting to a Wi-Fi network to see if you can then access the Internet. Most likely, the reset has fixed the issue and you should be able to surf the Internet without any issue.
