    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!"

    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

    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.
