    I just purchased an iPAD2 which came with no instructions. Please say hi to the guy that can't get beyond "It won't connect to my router!"

    My name is dmarq

    Canada says Hi. I'm a bit of a Luddite myself but
    which is why I chose an iPad over a new computer.
    I did a search for you and came up with a possible solution in apple support.
    Here's a cut n' paste.
    Good luck and welcome to the forum.

    Look at iOS Troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks and connections http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1398

    Additional things to try.

    Turn Off your iPad. Then turn Off (disconnect power cord) the wireless router & then back On. Now boot your iPad. Hopefully it will see the WiFi.

    On your iPad go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset network settings and see if that enables you to connect.

    If none of the above suggestions work, look at this link.
