    Hi there and welcome.

    A couple of things to try, go to the settings app and the wifi tab, select the network and choose "forget this network". Now reboot your modem/router. When your modem/router has rebooted reconnect your iPad to your network. Hopefully this will solve your problem.

    There is lots of good advice and info on here plus plenty of members all too willing to help with any problems.

    Remember, search is your friend. If you can't find the answer you need and you post a question then give as much info as you can to help members help you i.e. iPad 1 or 2, iOS version and name of app if the problem is with a specific app........and please don't forget to read the rules http://www.ipadforums.net/forum-rules-help-info/2119-forum-rules-everybody-please-read.html

    These are the hacking section rules for all you jail breakers (and would be jail breakers) http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/2892-hacking-section-rules-please-read.html

    We also have an app for this forum. The link to download the app is: Discussion Forum for iPad Users for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    You can download the manual for your iPad here http://support.apple.com/manuals/ and in iBooks search for "iPad user guide for" and you will find free comprehensive manuals for both iOS 4 and 5.

    If you have other Apple products or are interested in other Apple kit then why not join our sister forum too at http://www.appleforums.net/

    Finally, if you still haven't had enough, how about a video explaining about our other forums (note:you may want to play this at half speed but hey, why shouldn't Phil be excited about our forums!)

    Hello and welcome to the forum - both of you have responded to a 4-year old thread and likely will go unnoticed - please visit the New Member Introductions forum and leave a post there; if you have a specific question and/or problem w/ your iPad, then start a new thread w/ a pertinent title in an appropriate forum. Good luck - Dave :)
