Recently I have started having constant problems accessing the net (just getting on here to put this post on has been a struggle). Regularly and at random when trying to access websites I get a message saying either 'the server cannot be found' or 'the iPad is not connected to the Internet' (when it clearly is!!) or the page just stops loading, or does not load fully. My partner has the same issues with her iPad which suggests neither the hardware or our wifi networks are at fault. We are both running the latest iOS 6.1.3. We have tried clearing history in settings but that doesn't help. Grateful for any suggestions. This is absolutely driving me up the wall and this iPad will be going out the window soon. Many thanks

Do you have any other wifi devices in the house being affected?  Do you get the same problems when out and about, i.e cafe wifi?  

If it is an iOS problem,  try this...

This is from my iPad 4. With IOS 6.1.3 and Safari.No problems here.Internet was slow yesterday on some sites due I think to the link Paul mentioned above.

... and the undersea cable cut (near Palermo) on Sea-Me-We 4 since 27th March (3 arrested in Alexandria today for attempting to cut it there too).

Existing capacity (Sea-Me-We 3) is therefore under a lot more strain (60 percent more) and the whole network eventually gets a bit slower as traffic re-routes.

Indeed.

A rather different take on the situation
