Mike the Mac Medic :

Go to Settings / General / Reset then select Reset Network Settings. When it reboots try connecting again

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Unfortunately that does not help. Any other ideas?

Expert:  Mike the Mac Medic replied 2 years ago.
Ok can you tell me what you mean by "they keep slipping and it puts in another one which also slips". I am not familiar with that term "slips".
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi - sorry for delay but needed to access a computer! When I go to setting it will say not connected. Then I select home hub. Sometimes it says can't connect, sometimes it asks for the password ***** sometimes it connects. But then it will disconnect. Then it may try BT Wifi or BT wifi with fon. Again it picks up the networks but then disconnects.

It will switch backwards and forwards at will and then just go to unconnected.

Ok I would try doing a Restore by plugging it into the computer it is synced with and opening iTunes. See here:

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The only problem is that it is not synced with a computer. I use it as a stand alone device

Expert:  Mike the Mac Medic replied 2 years ago.
Are you at least using the iCloud to backup?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No - I am afraid not

Expert:  Mike the Mac Medic replied 2 years ago.

You should at least do that or you could lose your data. Unless it is an actual hardware failure that is the only procedure that can fix that problem. Sorry.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

i will try - the only problem i need a connection to do it. Will see what I can do, So when I have backed everything up, what do I do next?

Expert:  Mike the Mac Medic replied 2 years ago.
With or without a computer?
Expert:  Mike the Mac Medic replied 2 years ago.
If you meant without a computer the directions are here:

Restore from an iCloud backup
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Thanks. I will try that once I have managed to back everything up which may take a while

Expert:  Mike the Mac Medic replied 2 years ago.
Ok there are certain things that do not get backed up without a computer. Pictures, Music, Movies for instance.
