    Try using gmail from safari or a web browser , to make sure your gmail account is still active and problem free.

    If its not your internet service try closing the app completely and then relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly. Let us know how you go.

    My understanding is that gmail had issues for several days but I thought they had been sorted out. I have had Gmail 'can't get mail' problems from day one with Ipad 3 where I never did with Ipad one. This may not address your problems but thought I would throw out this link in this thread for anyone looking to solve Gmail problems. I haven't gotten one Gmail error message since I uninstalled Gmail and reinstalled using Exchange.

    Why Gmail using Microsoft Exchange is better on Your iPhone/iPad
