    Same deal here everything worked fine until I reloaded cydia my wifi kept dropping and kept getting the error code no internet connection available, even though my wifi worked perfectly before the jailbreak. Tried all the wifi fixes avail here and none worked. In the end I had to restore my ipad 2 back to factory settings. Please fix the wifi bug with this jailbreak 5.1.1

    I experience a problem with internet connection on my ipad 4G using wifi. Wifi still connected, however, but most of the times I need to reboot my ipad to get internet access. I did reset of network stteing but this did not solve the issue. I Used Absinthe 2.0.4 from it’s official website.

    2- After the reset unlock screen comes. Unlock but DONOT do anything else.
    3- Power recycle the iPad.(Shutdown completely by holding down the power button and using the slider to shut it down. Turn it back on by holding down the power button.)
    4- The Wi-Fi will be in working condition now.

    Just log into your router’s setting page, change broadcasting channel to different than the present one. After saving the new setting your wifi connection should be up and running ;P
