Does it connect to the interent - does it heck .. again
Another day, another set of toys (Sorry I mean IPads) in primary education!
Will it connect to the internet in this school - of course not
Maybe I've forgotten how to spell proxy.lancsngfl.ac.uk or maybe I've forgotten the port number 8080
I'll bet in 2 weeks time, it'll suddenly start working when the Dark Lords press their magic button that lets IPads connect to the mother-ship.

Spent ages on a mac laptop monday why wont this pile of poo connect to any smb share turns out the clock was 15 months wrong as it tries to use time.apple.... couldnt find and just picked some random date rather than oh i dont know asking the person who unboxed it

I'm having a verry bad day - the reason it worked after switching off and on is that it re-conected back to my phone wi-fi hotspot
Give me strength!!!

I've nipped up the road to the original school that had the problem 2 months ago and it works fine
I'm wondering if its some sort of invisible netfiltering going on - gonna go back to orig school and disable all filtering and see what happens

Agreed. They are designed for home use and not a good fit for education.
