Hello everyone,

Until a few days ago my Ipad 2 (64G) was working fine but suddenly i lost the ability to connect to wifi networks.

It seems like the wifi receiver lost its power and I can only connect to wifi if I get within 5 feet from my router.

Can any one help me solve this matter?

    Best guess -- your Wifi/Bluetooth antenna has become disconnected. This repair isn't for the faint of heart. iFixit lists it as 48 steps + "assembly is the reverse." You may be more comfortable in getting a service to do it.
