    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

    Who knows!!!!!!

    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.

    Grrrrrrrrrrr

    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.
