I just updated my iPhone to ios11.3. Now I can’t connect to Wi-Fi. I am being forced to connect to cellular data. I would prefer to not do that. My husband’s iPad is connected and in airplane mod. He has not updated his iOS on his iPad. Wi-Fi is working fine on his iPad. Anyone can help? Thanks in advance!
It seems that the problem of Wi-Fi connectivity has plagued iOS users worldwide. It could be a router setting’s problem or something else. So here we are going to share you some operations to solve the iPhone won’t connect to a Wi-Fi network issue.
- Make sure that your router is on and you’re within range
If you’re too far from your router, you can’t get a signal, so make sure that you’re within range.
- Make sure that Wi-Fi is on and you can see your network
Tap Settings > Wi-Fi and make sure that Wi-Fi is on. Tap the name of your Wi-Fi network to join. A blue checkmark beside a network name means that you’re connected. If asked, enter the password for your Wi-Fi network. You might see an “unable to join the network” message. Restart all of your devices, then try to enter your password again.
- Check your cables and connections
If you still can’t connect to your network or get online, make sure that your router is connected to the modem and turned on.
Try restarting your iOS device, router, and cable or DSL modem. To restart your router or modem, unplug it, then plug it back in. After you restart each device, see if you fixed the issue.
- Reset networking settings
Tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. This also resets Wi-Fi networks and passwords, cellular settings, and VPN and APN settings that you’ve used before.
- Make sure that it’s not a service outage
If you’re using a network at a company, school, hotel, store, or other free Wi-Fi location, find an employee for assistance. If you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network but you can’t get online, try to use your Wi-Fi network on other devices. If you can’t get online using your other devices, there might be a service outage. Call your cable company or internet provider for help.
- Test Wi-Fi at different locations
Try connecting to a Wi-Fi network in a different location. If your device can connect, you need to get help with your Wi-Fi network. If your device can’t connect to any Wi-Fi networks, contact Apple.
- Update your Wi-Fi router
Update your Wi-Fi router with the latest firmware and make sure that the router supports your Apple product. For more information, contact the router’s manufacturer.
