    I have been having problems connecting ever since the latest update. My wifi is not greyed out but it will not connect. I have another ipad mini and an iPhone which I did not install the update on yet and they are working fine. I have tried all the suggestions and nothing has made a difference. It also will drop the cellular data connection and have no service intermittently.
