    Welcome to iPadForums. We hope you enjoy your stay with us :) Please also take the time to peruse the forum rules here and abide by them as you post throughout the forum.

    The Netflix app is compatible with all devices. If it was previously working before, it might just be a cache issue, in which case you can try removing the app, then re-installing it, or if that doesn't work, you can try hard resetting the iPad 2 by pressing and holding both the power/standby button and the home buttons simultaneously, and keep holding them until you see an Apple logo on the screen, then release both. If you hear a camera-clicking sound or if your screen just has a white flash, you slightly mistimed it and took a screen capture instead. It may take several times to get it right as it comes down to proper timing of pressing both buttons at once.

    Been playing all evening with my wifes ipad2 trying to get it to play netflix. It seems like it will work on other wifi networks, just not ours. although My ipad4 and 2 laptops work with netflix ok. so it seems like some kind of connection issue that I will need to figure out.

    Try resetting your router, if there's no reset tab, just turn it off, wait a few seconds and turn it on again.

    If still no joy....go into settings on the iPad, wifi and tap your wifi, then Forget this Network and then set it up again.

    Close the Netflix app completely and then relaunch it.

    Also see if there are any updates available for your router if still no joy!
