Hello there! Please follow the steps below to reset your network settings then you should be able to connect to your router.

  1. From the Home screen, navigate: Settings > General > Reset.
  2. Tap Reset Network Settings.
  3. Enter the 4-digit passcode.
  4. Tap Reset Network Settings. Then after reset attempt to connect to your wifi.

This is the point of me getting in touch! I cannot get to the home screen to reach settings etc. How do I do that. I just click on the button in the top right hand corner and it immediately comes up asking me for a password ***** when I put the number in from my router, it says it does not like it.

Expert:  Johnny Mack replied 1 year ago.
Sorry about that if it asking for a password ***** the homepage then it wants the users password ***** the wifi. You can do the following to bypass that.

  1. Plug your device into your computer with a USB cable.
  2. Turn off the device.
  3. Hold the Power button for 3 seconds.
  4. Hold the Home and Power buttons for 10 seconds.
  5. Release the Power button but keep holding the Home button.
  6. After about 15 seconds you will be alerted by iTunes saying that it has detected a device in Recovery Mode.

Make sure the device screen is blank and no logos are present. Then restore with itunes.

I have plugged the device into my computer with a USB cable and did I you said. It initially came up with the Apple logo and has now gone back to the blank black screen. I will try again when I have finished typing.
