Ipad air (2013), non-cellular. iOS 12.1 Wifi connects, but does not display the wifi icon at top of screen. Everything works EXCEPT Messages, Mail and Facebook. All say not connected to the 'net. Other apps that require connection work just fine. Am out of country at the moment and will do a backup and then reset to see if that clears the problem. Has anyone else ever experienced this? Any suggestions/solutions?

Not sure if you fixed the problem by now, but I had a similar experience with facetime giving the message "not connected to server ". I put it down to being in Europe and poor wifi where we were staying. Anyway I eventually held down the home and on/off buttons and it rebooted. Facetime worked after that.

Turns out the problem was my VPN app. Removed it from the iPad and all is good.
