    I have a stock ipad 2...when i go on safari this thing pops up saying Authentication Required, then it asks for my username and password I typed it in and it won't go through! So I just keeps asking me for my username and password! I don't know what to do I used the username and password that I use for the app store! I have tried shutting my iPad down for a couple minutes then restarting it but that hasn't worked!! I would really appreciate the help!!

    That sounds like it is the authentication for whatever website you are visiting. You are not on your routers admin page or something daft like that, are you? What URL are you visiting in Safari? Has your wifi router crashed and maybe re-set itself, but is directing yo back to it until you give it some attention? Maybe try turning it off and on again?

    Safari has no way to ask for your iTunes user ID an Password AFAIK, so I think it must be a website.

    It sounds like you have to put a pass word in for the wifi you are connecting to have Internet. What kind of Internet are you using ?

    Yes, motels do that to you. You sign in first day and don't think about it after, but on whichever day they choose you have to sign in on their page again.
