    iPad 2 not displaying Wi-Fi icon after establishing connection with Wi-Fi router

    There is no issue in connecting my iPad 3 with Wi-Fi router. But, the device shows the 3G symbol in the place of Wi-Fi icon after that. What are the steps needed to be taken for getting back the Wi-Fi icon?

    Get into the default settings list after tapping the ‘Settings’ icon on home screen and locate the ‘Wi-Fi’ item. Slide the switch next to this item into ‘OFF’ and ‘ON’ mode one after the other. If this does not resolve the issue, reset the iPad by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons together until the Apple Logo pop up on the screen. In case the issue still persists, reset the network settings on your iPad. Tap the ‘General’ option from the default settings list for that and hit the ‘Reset’ option. The next step required is to tap over the ‘Reset Network Settings’ option and check for the Wi-Fi symbol. If you can still find the issue, then unplug the router from iPad and place it as such for about 30 seconds. Plug in the router again and see whether it resolves the issue.

    If anytime your i Pad is responsive in nature then you have to reset the device. And it has done by below one.

    Soft Reset:

    :: Just "press and hold" the Sleep options until you get a slider on a i Pad screen.

    :: And then drag the slider.

    :: After that "press and hold" the Sleep options until you get an "Apple" logo on a i Pad screen.

    If this does not solve the problem then try the "Hard Reset" below. This will erase everything off the device and start you off fresh.

    Hard Reset:

    Just "Press and hold" the Sleep button with the "Home" button for a few seconds.

    After processing the steps you will get a "Apple" logo and see your device complete the Hard Reset.

    Alternative

    And also do below one:

    1) Reset all settings

    2) Reset Network settings
