    Have noticed that my ipad 2 ( as well as two iPod touches 4th gen) won't connect to my wifi from my router, 2 wii's and pc lap top do, we can still connect as I have airport Internet sharing turned on via my desktop but that network is not supposed to be as strong or fast . The ipad did hook up to the router 2 days ago but then yesterday it went back to the other, there is no renew lease option or forget this network option, or any info in the fields when I hit the blue arrow for the router net work, the router is only a few months old and my printer is on that network as well, any suggestions, oh and I have done the hard and soft resets and network settings , hhhm annoying

    Do you have another Router to try with ?, I have an iPad 3 4G and have noted issues with a Netgear Router over wireless on 54g, i saw that it kept requesting password each time I turned on iPad, with 2 other routers I.e. 2Wire and BT Homehub issue doesn't occur, seems to be Netgear specific, other routers are G and N respectively so it wasn't the band being used, note iPhone 4s didn't have issue with the Netgear router either, go figure

    I have now noticed that the wii is not connected either, but LC laptop and printer are working, what I don't get is everything was hooked up to it before,it finds the network but says it is unable to connect, not sure which router I have,I think it is net gear,it is only a few months old and is supposed to run many devices Mac or pc based

    Some routers have a limit set to how many devices can be connected at once, I would turn a few things off and see if it connects that way first. Then I would look in your router settings admin page and see if you can change this option. Good luck resolving your issue.
