    Ah...you entered an IP? That may be the reason. The iPad will autmataclly get an IP from the connection, that doesn't need to be changed.

    If you could for me, do a Reset Network Settings, and go back and connect to the network. If it connects successfully, you will see the wifi icon.
    Cheers,

    I reset it and got this:
    IP - 169.254.253.208
    subnet: 255.255.0.0

    those are only filled.

    It's changed again from the first.

    There's no apple store around here. If it works in Comet it should work here, and maybe i just need help with the settings as i get a feeling it's not right.

    I thought the whole lot had to be filled in, not just the top two?
    I just don't know what is causing this problem.
    my actual internet disconnects on my laptop occasionally saying it cannot respond to the dns, but when it's connected fine the Ipad is connected through to it too, so i dont get why i cant get on the net. I mean surely the Ipad should work once my broadband is fully connected such as now.

    Looks like you need to enlist a slightly more tech savvy friend, the 169.254.?.? Is not a valid address and is just a filler that most IP stacks use when they fail to get an address. Something in your iPad to router connection is not all it should be, you mentioned it wasn't very but dad says it is it may be running no encryption, WEP encryption or WAP encryption in any case you have to know which to configure the iPad with the password. I would back up and look at the router settings and make notes encryption yes or no, DHCP yes or no ( if DHCP isn't turned the router will not pass a valid address lastly what password or phrase are we using. All of is comes with experience in router device setup but is not obvious to someone just starting out.

    Finally got it working!
    It was the WEP key. It must have been blocking the Ipad from connecting, i'm guessing. I did altering to the WEP and it works now.
    Pretty simple really. Can't believe it's taken so long to figure out something this easy.

    Thanks a lot for the help though.

    I am having the exact same problem. I've been watching this forum conversation to see what the resolution is. What is a WEP key? That may also be my solution but i don't know what it is.

    Thanks
