Wi-Fi works on startup but then disappears and never returns
So, I bought each of my kids a refurbished iPad 2 a couple years ago for games and learning activities. The wi-fi on one of them inexplicably stopped working after about a year. If I turn it off and on or do a hard reboot it will work temporarily but then disappear altogether again. Upon startup it will recognize the local network and allow me to log into it, then within a minute it disappears and doesn't even detect signals anymore. It also seems to lockup on the wi-fi screen in settings making it difficult to quickly turn the wi-fi off and on for troubleshooting. Is this a hardware or software issue?
Is this a good question?
