    Try finding alternate wifi hotspots (if possible) to determine whether the problem is with your iPad 2 or your router.

    This is usually a router problem (older ones mostly), rather than a device issue.

    Hi Efcsantos - welcome to the forum! :)

    Agree w/ the previous posters - certainly if you can try your iPad on other Wi-Fi networks w/ success then that will localize your issue(s).

    Also, 'power recycle' both your router & modem (both may be in one unit?) - simply pull the cord and/or turn off the power switch; wait a half minute or so and then sequentially turn on your modem (wait a little) and finally your router - good luck & please post back if these suggestions do not help!

    I had a problem with an older TG580 router, wifi worked OK with my Dell laptop but my iPad 2 had problems connecting and staying connected. Replaced router with new Netgear DGN2200 and no more iPad 2 wifi probs.
