    I've had my iPad for a few weeks and had WiFI working fine, then today it stopped working with my home router. I hadn't touched any setting on either the iPad or my router. It currently appears to connect, my rounter is checked off under settings; but when I go to use the network it tells me it can't make a connection.

    I am able to connect to other WiFi sources, just not my own; but I am still able to connect to my home wireless with both my iPhone and laptop.

    I have tried forgetting my wifi and reconnecting, I have renamed my router, I have restarted both the ipad and the router and I even upraded to iOS 3.2.1..but still can't get it to work.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    -Bruce

    Did you try a hard reset, or just powering off/on?

    To do a hard reset (won't delete anything): Hold down both the Sleep and Hone buttons until you see the Apple logo.

    I was just powering it off. I tried the hard reset and still had the problem, then an hour or so later I heard my new mail beap, so it is working again, not sure exactly what is going on, but it's working so I'm happy.

    Thanks,

    Router ?

    Hi Bruce...saw your post as was just wondering what type router you had. Is there a "preferred" router for the I-Pad?? Thanks...Ken

    PS- Glad it's working again.

    Jumping in here, too: I did a hard reset (twice) on my iPad. Didn't help at all & I spent hours putting passwords/usernames etc back in the various aps. My router is an Airport Extreme.
