Sounds like there is a problem with the WiFi card in your phone, take it back to an Apple store, all Apple stores have a WiFi open network so you can show a Mac Specialist the problem, my thinking is if it doesn't connect at home then it wont connect to there network. If your phone doesn't work in the store ask to speak to the manager or assistant manager, be persistent and insistent if your iPhone is not hacked they will change it but you have to fight your corner.
IBM load there own set of software on there notebooks which take care of networking lan and wi-fi, I have found if try to use the windows native wireless checker it does not pick the networks up. Try using the IBM program either in the taskbar near the clock or in the start menu.
Also in Device Manager does the wi-fi device show up.
There also may be a light that indicates wi-fi is on on at the front or or above the keyboard if its off let me know.
Other possibility is to uninstall the driver for the wireless device restart and let it reinstall automatically.

Try this. Go to Settings Wi-Fi, click on your home network and then the little I (information icon), make sure HTTP Proxy is switched to off. click forget this network. Reboot phone (power off, count to 10 and power back up).
Go back to Settings, Wi-Fi, Home Network and try again. If that doesn't work, click Renew Lease.
"Anyone experiencing really slow WiFi on their new iPhone 6 Plus? Mine is super slow. When I switch off WiFi, LTE works perfectly and very snappy. I didn't have any issues with my 5s and not having issues with my iPad Air. I doubt it's an iOS 8 issue because the 5s and iPad Air are running iOS 8. WiFi also works fine on my 13" MacBook Pro Retina. It's not a router issue. Any ideas??" asked by Mikef91 on the Apple's office discussions.
As one of the leading wholesale cell phone parts supplier online, DBXStore find some solution for you to fix the show wifi problem on your iphone 6/ 6 plus.
Greyed-out, slow or no Wi-Fi signal at all are among the top three biggest Wi-Fi headaches. Even though the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus came with iOS 8, Wi-Fi problems are still not completely avoidable. Before searching for solutions to Wi-Fi related problems, always update your device to the newest version of iOS. If that doesn't work, then it is time to dig deeper.
1. Reset Network Settings
Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.
This is a solution suggested by Apple Service. Resetting your network settings including Bluetooth pairing records, Wi-Fi passwords, VPNs, and APN settings; which flushes cache and clears DHCP settings and other networking related information. 2. Disable Wifi Network Services
Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services.
This only relates to your location being used for network and not the Wi-Fi itself.
3. Switch DNS To Google
Often times, if your ISPs DNS servers are having problems, you can switch to Google DNS by going to Settings > Wi-Fi then tap the "i" icon next to your router, scroll down to DNS and tap the numbers, then enter "18.104.22.168". Restart your device and check if it works.
4. Change The Routers Broadcasting Band
Change the routers Wi-Fi broadcast from an N network to a G network, or from 2.4GHz to 5GHz - this depends on your individual router hardware.
5. Factory Reset
Settings > General > Reset > Erase all Content and Settings > Erase iPhone.
Last but not least, restore your iPhone and set it up as a new device.
Other tricks like placing the iPhone 6/6 Plus in a refrigerator, freezer it for 15 minutes, or the opposite using a hair dryer to heat up the device might also be of help.
However, if all these software related tricks don't help, it could possibly be a hardware problem with the Wi-Fi antenna. Then the only fix is to replace your antenna with a new Wi-Fi antenna replacement. Here are links to the parts and tutorial guides' for reference.
Your cellular carrier can provide you with a "signal booster" device that can repeat and boost a cellular signal you already get in your house. For example, if you consistently have one bar of coverage but no more at home, a booster can take that one bar and turn it into more bars. If you have one or two bars of coverage near a window but no coverage elsewhere in your home, a booster near that window can capture the signal and boost it, providing a strong signal throughout the rest of your home.
Some carriers offer such devices very inexpensively - $50 or maybe even free - especially if you're in an area where they know they know they have poor coverage. T-Mobile now offers such boosters for only a $25 deposit, which you can get back just by returning the booster to them.
Contact your carrier - or look at their website - to see just what they'll offer you and for how much.
Femtocells / Microcells
A femtocell - or "microcell" - is a small, low-power cellular base station that connects to the cellular network via your broadband Internet connection. Essentially, it's a small cellular signal tower that will provide a signal in and near your home, connecting to the larger mobile network over your Internet connection. This makes it ideal for situations where you don't even have a signal bar of coverage you can boost at home. The only "catch" is that your Internet connection must have a high enough download speed. Different carriers require different minimum speeds, but you should be fine as long as you have a solid broadband connection.
Ask your cellular carrier if they offer this sort of product and find out how much it will cost you. As with boosters and repeaters, a femtocell may be available at a steep discount from your carrier in areas they know they have poor cellular service.
You can also buy them easily on Amazon or almost any decent tech store - for instance the one pictured below works for AT&T and supports LTE (though it is a bit pricey), or you can get one that supports Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, Cricket, and many others, but you won't get LTE support. Of course, since you likely have Wi-Fi in your house, LTE isn't really a big deal and the 3G will work just fine for calls and texts.
Editor's Note: For the official How-To Geek office we got a Samsung microcell device directly through Verizon, which wasn't cheap, and doesn't work all that well. And since it only works for Verizon, any of the people who come by who use other carriers have zero signal, which is really annoying. If we could do it over again, we'd have started with this zBoost microcell that supports virtually every cell provider and has many different models and options to choose from depending on the size of the house. They even have an optional antenna you can install on your roof to give cell coverage everywhere around your house. It's the best choice, and cheaper than most carriers will offer you.
Wi-Fi Calling and SMS
Wi-Fi calling is a feature you might remember from some years ago, but it's coming back with a vengeance. At the moment, in the US, only T-Mobile offers Wi-Fi calling for both Android phones and the iPhone. Sprint only offers Wi-Fi calling for select Android phones. AT&T and Verizon have announced plans to activate Wi-Fi calling in 2015.
Essentially, WI-Fi calling allows your smartphone to receive and place calls and communicate via text messages over a Wi-Fi network. Your home probably has Wi-Fi, so Wi-FI calling will let you use your existing wireless router instead of needing a new, specialized device. You can just improve your Wi-Fi signal strength, and all your devices will benefit!
Wi-Fi calling works transparently. When your phone is on Wi-Fi and has a poor cellular signal, it will connect to the Wi-Fi network and your phone calls and text will be sent and arrive over the Wi-Fi network. When you leave the Wi-Fi network, your phones and calls will be sent over the cellular network as usual. This is all designed to hand-off automatically, so you could start a phone call on your Wi-Fi network and your phone would automatically hand off to the cellular network as you walk out the door, with no interruptions.
WI-FI calling will also work on other WI-Fi networks, so it's helpful if you ever end up in another place where you have a poor cellular signal but have Wi-Fi. To use this, you'll need to ensure your phone has Wi-Fi calling support and that it's enabled. Android phones from T-Mobile and Sprint will often include this feature, so look up how to enable it on your specific model of Android phone.
The iPhone 6 has built-in Wi-Fi calling, although it currently only functions on T-Mobile. AT&T and Verizon plan to support it in 2015. To enable this feature on an iPhone, open the Settings screen, tap Phone, tap Wi-Fi Calling, and activate it.
WI-Fi calling seems to be the future goal the industry - T-Mobile, especially - is pushing towards. With Wi-Fi calling integrated into your phone, you don't need to buy a specialized device. Your home Wi-Fi router works. And, when you go somewhere else where you have a poor signal, all they need is a Wi-Fi network and you'll be able to get a phone calls and SMS messages through it.

You don't assign an IP address to your iPad, it has one assigned to it by your router.
Open the Settings app on your iPad. Make sure Airplane Mode is OFF. Tap Wi-Fi. Make sure the Wi-Fi switch is ON, Ask to Join Networks is ON. Your in-home wi-fi network should be visible in the list titled Choose a Network.... Tap its name and provide the network password required by your router.
If you don't see your local router listed, it may not be properly configured.
How are You? I Guess you need to
1- Check your wi-fi router model.
2- Check your wi-fi settings.
also please check how many devices are connected to your wi-fi at same time. because some routers can only support upto 5 device. you can check this in the settings and also routers manual.
Ensure that Wi-Fi is on. When you see a green check mark next to the Wi-Fi option, Wi-Fi is on.
Choose a wireless network from the list. Available Wi-Fi networks appear at the bottom of the screen. When no wireless networks are listed, you're sort of out of luck regarding wireless access from your current location. Optionally, type the network password. Touch the Password text box to see the onscreen keyboard. Touch the Show Password check box so that you can see what you're typing; some of those network passwords can be long. Touch the Connect button. You should be immediately connected to the network. If not, try the password again.
To use Google maps or some other programs (like games), you need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network, not the cellular network. You will need to be in an area with an open wi-fi network or have a wireless router in your home. Find your password for the router's wi-fi network (it should be password-protected) and the SSID; you also need the encryption type (WAP, WEP, etc.).
Press Apps on the Home Screen. Then press Settings and then Wi-Fi. Select Scan to locate available networks. While on the Wi-Fi tab, press Add Network. Enter the SSID with the keyboard, then touch Security type to select the encryption for your router. Then enter the password and finally press Save. (Some wi-fi routers will want the MAC address before you can add a device to the network. Go to the Menu - Advanced from the Wi-fi tab to get the information.)
If the wi-fi network has been set up on the Tab, press Apps on the Home Screen. Then press Settings and look for the Wi-Fi On/Off icon. Toggle this to on. (You can also access this by touching the time on the Home Screen. Then touch Wi-fi on the Quick Settings list.)
In order to work (both when registering and dialing), your iPhone
will need to make a data connection to the RingFree servers. Wi-Fi,
though not always available, of course, is your best choice.
To enable Wi-Fi on your iPhone:
Go to the Home screen by pressing the Home button or by unlocking your phone.
Touch the settings incon
Look to the right of the Wi-Fi icon. If a Wi-Fi network is listed, you're all set. Otherwise, select the Wi-Fi icon.
If Wi-Fi is "OFF", touch the Wi-Fi toggle to turn on Wi-Fi.
Then select a network (if one is available) from the list that appears on the iPhone.
When connected via Wi-Fi, you'll see a striped upside-down triangle to
the right of your service provider's name on the upper-left corner of
the iPhone. If there is no network available, you'll have to use the
i hope it will help you for further query feel free to contact.....waiting forward for your reply.....
You have to ocnnect your iphone to internet first , Follow below step to connect to internet
When you use any Internet enabled application, iPhone does the following in order until connected:
Connects over the last Wi-Fi network you used that's available.
If no Wi-Fi networks you've used are available, shows a list of Wi-Fi networks in range. Tap a network and, if necessary, enter the password to join. Networks that require a password show next to them.
If no Wi-Fi networks are available or you choose not to join any, iPhone connects over the cellular data network.
Note: You can be on a call and use Wi-Fi or 3G1 at the same time. Other cellular data networks are unavailable while you're on a call.
Wi-Fi is often faster than cellular data networks. Wi-Fi networks cover limited areas. iPhone can join AirPort and other Wi-Fi networks at home, at work, or at Wi-Fi hot spots around the world. When iPhone is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon in the status bar at the top of the screen shows connection strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the connection.
To see all the Wi-Fi networks in range, from the Home screen choose Settings > Wi-Fi. Tap a network to join it.
Many Wi-Fi networks can be used free of charge, and some require a fee. To join a Wi-Fi network at a hot spot where charges apply, in most cases you can open Safari to see a webpage that allows you to sign up for service.
For information about configuring Wi-Fi settings, see the "Wi-Fi" section of the iPhone User's Guide. Note: iOS devices sold in China may use the term Wireless LAN (WLAN) instead of Wi-Fi. Not all China iPhone models support WLAN; see this article for more information.
Cellular data networks
Cellular data networks allow Internet connectivity over the cellular network. Check your carrier's network coverage in your area for availability.
You can tell iPhone is connected to the Internet over a cellular data network if you see , or in the status bar at the top of the screen.
If you're outside your carrier's network, you may be able to use a cellular data network from another carrier. Roaming charges may apply. Note: If not on 3G, while iPhone is actively transferring data over the cellular data network-downloading a webpage, for example-you may not be able to receive calls. Incoming calls may go to voicemail.
I hope , after this , you will be able to connect to Internet....
Youe broadband router is working ok with the broadband cable.So it is configured with the broadband cable.Now,to work with the wireless internet,you have to configured the wi-fi router to work internet.You can see the wi-fi connection but unless & untill you will configure wi-fi router it must not work or if before it was working with the wi-fi then you can check the wi-fi router setting because it might change by mistake.Surely it will work after configurating wi-fi router.
