Methods to Fix iPad Air 5 Not Connecting to the Internet

1. Turn Wi-Fi Off And Back On

The inability of your iPad to connect to Wi-Fi is most likely a mere problem. And you can resolve it by shutting off and turning on the wireless network connection.

Open Settings and tap Wi-Fi. Then, to disable Wi-Fi, hit the toggle at the top of the screen next to Wi-Fi and after a few seconds, tap the switch again.

2. Restart Your iPad Air 5

Try restarting your iPad if turning Wi-Fi off and then back on does not resolve the issue. Possibly, your iPadOS has glitches, which would prohibit it from connecting to available Wi-Fi networks.

To turn off your iPad, press and hold the power button until the slide to power off shows, and swipe it from left to right. Hold the power button to restart it after waiting for a few minutes. If your iPad has a Home button, use that. If the Home button is missing from your iPad, press and hold the Top button and either volume button until the slide to power off option displays.

3. Reboot Your Router to Fix iPad Air 5 Not Connecting to the Internet

It would help if you also power off and then restart your router at the same time as you restarted your iPad. Sometimes your wireless router is to blame when your iPad cannot connect to a Wi-Fi network. You have to unplug it from the wall to get it going again and then plug it back in!

4. Forget your Wi-Fi network 

Now that we’ve gone through the more fundamental solutions, it’s time to move on to more in-depth parts of the troubleshooting process. To begin, we will attempt to forget your Wi-Fi network on your iPad.

When you connect your iPad for the first time to a different Wi-Fi network, it stores information about the network and the steps necessary to connect to it. Forgetting the network will allow your iPad to start over if something about the network has changed (for example, you have changed the password).

Launch the Settings app, navigate to the Wi-Fi section, and then tap the blue i button next to your Wi-Fi network’s name. After that, select the Forget This Network option.

After you have disconnected from the Wi-Fi network, navigate to Settings > Wi-Fi and tap on the network name you wish to reconnect. Enter the password for your Wi-Fi network, then check to see if your iPad can connect to the internet network.

5. Disable Virtual Private Network (VPN) 

VPN can shield your identity from prying eyes when surfing the web on your iPad. On the other hand, problems with your VPN configuration may prevent your iPad from connecting to a wireless network. Besides, your VPN service provider may have technical difficulties, causing your iPad’s VPN connection to be temporarily disrupted.

Open Settings and tap VPN. To deactivate the VPN connection on your iPad, you must first turn off the switch next to Status. When it displays “Not Connected,” you’ll know that your virtual private network (VPN) is not active.

It will reset all the settings, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Cellular Data, and VPN, to their original factory defaults. Following resetting the network, you must re-enter the password for your Wi-Fi network and reconnect.
