    Hi. Please would you give me advice. On my ipad. I've tried to use security code but it won't accept it. I haven't forgotten it so I know it's the correct code. It also has no wi fi display. Which is odd has my other devices have wi fi
    I'm becoming more and more frustrated so any help you could offer. I would be extremely grateful ! Thank you

    Have you contacted Apple support? I am sure they will be able to help. In the meantime, some good soul on here will no doubt give you some assistance.
    Good luck

    First, try resetting and restarting your device, which hopefully help with your Wi-Fi issue.
    To reset (reboot): press and hold Home and Power button simultaeously until the Apple logo appears. Then release both and let the iPad power up.
    To restart: turn off your device, turn it on again.

    Reset your router as well: turn it off, unplug it, leave it for a few minutes, then plug it in and turn it on again. Make sure it's software is up to date.

    If your security code is the one you have to enter when you unlock the iPad (passcode), this is what you can do to remove it: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1212
    Without Wi-Fi, the second option (using iCloud to erase it) won't work. Either use iTunes or recovery mode to get it working again. You'll be able to add the passcode again after restoring.

    Hope that helps.
