    All of a sudden I can't open any apps using my wireless. They time out ..just hang..or I get "no data available" If I use 3G I seem to be fine. Also sending email or emailing my pictures is taking forever. Any suggestions on what the problem is and how do I fix it.
    I've tried powering down but that doesn't work.

    Have you tried rebooting your router?

    Hello and welcome to the forum! :)

    As already stated, 'power recycling' your internet devices often is the first step to correct connection problems, but keep in mind that you likely have both a modem (hooked to the cable of your ISP) and also a router (which likely is broadcasting your Wi-Fi signal) - the devices could be combined into one unit; if you have two separate devices then you need to power off both, and then sequentially re-power the modem followed by the router - see if that helps?

    If not, then you might want to also 'Restart' and if not successful 'Reset' your iPad - directions HERE - good luck!
