    I am so frustrated, lol. I got the new ipad and it won't connect to ANY wifi network. I know I am getting the password right because I had "forgot" the network on the ipad 1 just to make sure I knew the password. I tried rebooting it and turning the airplane/wifi mode on/off. Any suggestions?

    I didn't have any trouble connecting but the iPad keeps dropping the connection. Darn. I'll have to figure that out.

    It may take a long time in some cases (up to 5 minutes). Mine took over 1 minute the first time but after the initial setup, everything went back to normal.

    Leave it there and grab a cup of coffee or something....

    Hope it helps...

    Hi nick--have you tried to power off your modem and router than power it back on to see if that worked?

    Ironically, unbeknownst to me, the minute my ipad was being delivered, one of my galaxy tabs decided to lose its wifi address and couldn't connect. There are foibles with the GTs regarding address leases but what I eventually found was that my router had run out of addresses for devices (these keep a record for renewal requests and if you test different devices that you don't use often, then the addresses get tied up). So if the rebooting, etc., doesn't work, check how big the range is on your wifi router to make sure there are enough fresh ones that can be offered for your new device to grab.
