When you set up the iPads its very easy to find a network and join. However at school you will also need to add the proxy settings in wi fi to manual and put in your proxy settings. Without the settings we could go to the internet, we could reach iTunes but we couldn’t download anything from the apps store on the iPads.
Thanks Chris (my great tech) for giving us this fix.
I am still to get my head around proxies and firewalls. I do what is needed but have no idea how it works. I think its time I took time to find out. Anyone got a simple explanation?
