    First I couldn't get connection and get any bars now most of the time I have bars but it still won't connect. Safari times out and I get messages playing apps saying not connected to the Internet.

    Sometimes if I lift the iPad in the air I can get the website to load. :confused:

    I tried a bunch of things, I finially got bard by changing the router to channel 11. So got thar far, but doesn't make a difference if it still doesn't connect.

    Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

    I ran into this on a few public networks I connect to occasionally and what seems to work for me is changing the DNS entries on the iPad to use a public DNS, such as google. Try letting it find the wireless, then go to the settings and manually set the DNS to 8.8.8.8. Its worth a shot!

    Thanks for the advice I will try that. So I go into my router, manual and change the DNS to 8.8.8.8?
