    Hi All,
    Just purchased the iPad 2, 16gb, Wi Fi.
    I am located in The Canadian Prairies, retired and wanted a lighter device for travel( pics, email, web assist).
    Now I have to connect to a self help to set up the iPad 2 for web browser, email, and Wi Fi.
    Just updated iTunes on my PC and searched YouTube for how to, but the 2 videos say to connect thhe iPad to the Mac which I don't have.
    I will post on a iPad help section.
    Thanks,
    Grabber.

    Hi,
    The plug to the PC worked.
    Now I go to Settings-Wi Fi , find my network, tap my network name , type the password and
    the "join" button does not light up and cannot connect to Wi Fi.
    One of the , youtube help sections says to change the router setting to " 802.11N, on my router settings. Scary??
    Thanks again,
    Grabber

    Sorry folks, I was using the incorrect password for the network.
    Got connected when I found the right P/W.
    I keep my P/W's on a usb drive.
    Thanks again.
