WiFi access point (AP wireless router), is a device which could connect WiFi users to the Internet, and normally provides route. But some AP does not provide route, and only used as a wireless switch. If you want to configure WiFi for Internet access, please learn some information about the operating mode of AP.

Under normal circumstances, AP wireless router will auto assign an IP address to the users. And it will tell the users about the network mask and default route. At this time, it needs to configure via using iPad DHCP. For another rarely seen AP which is only used as a wireless switch, it requires the user to manually set the IP, mask and route. In this case, the user needs to use the iPad Static Mode to configure. And users could know the setup information from the AP providers. And the AP which is used for testing belongs to the later type.

AP wireless router usually will require authentication, though there are many types of authentications, iPad only supports three types: WEP, WPA and WPA2. Users need to know AP configuration information from the AP providers. After knowing the AP wireless router, you can begin to configure and use this AP wireless router on iPad.
