Lost Wi-Fi After Upgrade
Been going through a nightmare for the last 2 days. Several months ago my computer crashed and I lost much of my iTunes music, movies, etc. I have spent the last two days reloading it as it was on my iPad and not the computer. Got that done and so today to get my Apps updated I loaded the ios5 and now I have no Wi Fi. I read some blogs and it said to reset to factory settings. Did that, but no luck. Still no Wi FI! Help!!!!:(

Regarding your post...are you saying that your iPad's Wi-Fi isn't working after the upgrade? It sounds like you did, but did you try resetting (not restarting) it? That's fixed a lot of problems for others.
Reset the iPad: You can do this by pressing the Home button and the Sleep/wake button on the top the iPad's case and holding them down together for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo. The iPad should then reset itself. The boot up process takes a few minutes and then the iPad should be responsive again.
If that doesn't do it you could try deleting and re-adding your Wi-Fi network settings:
Settings > Wi-Fi > Network > Forget this Network
Also, rebooting everything on your home network including your router/modem, computer, etc. may correct the problem as well.
Hope that helps!
BTW, I'm going to move this to the iPF Help area where you're likely to get a better response.
Welcome again and enjoy!
