    Hi All... I need some help if you could!

    ***edited***: No need to read further. I made a silly mistake. When it all went wrong I forgot the first thing you do when things go wrong: reboot! I did try turning it on and off, but didn't rebook. The wifi is now BACK! :)

    My iPad Wifi won't come on.
    - In the Settings, I've turned the button ON - nothing happens.
    - I've tried turning iPad ON and OFF. Nothing.
    - Same with the button. ON and OFF. Nothing.
    - Home Wifi is working fine for my computer and TV, so that's not it.
    - iPad is virtually new, a month old.
    - Battery is 51%.
    - I've plugged it in, just in case. Nothing.
    - Was working fine yesterday, and haven't downloaded anything since.

    Has anyone ever had this before, and how can I solve it? Thank you!!

    When you say 'turning it on and off' do you mean really powering it down, or simply putting it to sleep?

    Thanks Tim - you're absolutely right and I edited my post to reflect that. I'm not familiar with the iPad yet so I had only turned it off. When I really powered it off it started working again... thank you!
