Yesterday, my Ipad and both my Nintendo DS systems suddenly stopped connecting to my Wifi. I can't tell if it's an odd coincidence, the router or what. My laptop and Android phone still connect just fine to the Wifi and so does my Wii system. The DS systems stopped first; I'd been connected online just minutes before, but when I disconnected and then wanted to reconnect, it wouldn't. Connection tests give me an error about not being able to obtain the IP address. One system is a DSi and one a DS, but neither will connect. The Ipad stopped just after. I was looking at the wifi connection info and don't recall exactly what I clicked when it quit on me...I do recall clicking between the three tabs that show when you click 'SETTINGS' and the button, then click on the network. I also recall toggling the auto/manual/off HTTP item at the bottom. The Ipad will show the IP address and the item beneath it, but no other information, and I read somewhere that the prefix of the address mean it's self-assigned. It looks like it's trying to connect and the wifi symbol appears up at the top, but it won't actually connect. I did read something about firmware updates, but if it was working fine just before, I can't see how that would be the problem. I tried resetting the settings on all the devices, and tried resetting the Ipad, first network settings and then a full reset, but nothing happened.
Can anyone tell from this if things might be connected, or if it's a coincidence, and what's going on?
PS, if this is in the wrong place, apologies...was hard to be sure with not being sure where the problem is.
