    Most work fine just have trouble with select few. It has all just started lately. Any suggestions?

    It just loads about half way and then stops. Then a couple min later a message appears saying can't connect to server. But works fine on a pc. So it's not the site. Cleared cookies. And router seems good. Aim somewhat of a novice with this stuff

    The best way forward is to start with the simple stuff first. Try powering the iPad off completely - i.e. not just putting it to Sleep - by pressing and holding the Power button until the slider control appears. Accept the offer to switch off and then, when the iPad has completely powered down (blank screen), press and hold the Power button again until the white Apple logo appears and then wait for it to power back up. This simple procedure cures a whole load of problems and even Apple recommend you do this at least once a week.

    I've tried powering off. That's not it.the message says. Cannot open page

    Safari could not open
    The page because server
    Stopped responding

    But the iPad works fine on other sites and their site is not down as It loads fine from my pc.

    That website loads without trouble on an iPad 1.

    Have you installed the newest iOS firmware? Or rather, which version are you currently using?

    And have you restarted Safari?
    It can be done as follows:
    -double tap the home button, to enter the multitasking bar
    -press onto the safari app, until it starts wiggling
    -press on the red circle

    Restarted safari, didn't seem to change anything. The version says 4.2.1 (8c148) it's a original iPad not a ipad2. It loads other sites very well just not the covers.com for some reason.

    checked firmware for iPad 1, 2 and iPhone 4, all 4.3.1 and loads the site fine, although the iPhone uses http://m.covers.com the mobile version of the site

    Is it just for some sites or all?
    Could it be your wifi rather than iPad?

    Tmzek,

    since you restarted Safari, cleared the Cache&Cookies and the problem still persists. Though only on your iPad, as it seems to load fine from your computer, would I suggest you update the iPad to either 4.3.2, or 4.3.3, as various other users, including myself can open the page without problems on iOS 4.3, or newer.

    If your iPad is jailbroken, you could run tinyumbrella to save 4.3.2 SHSH blobs now and than update to that version and install an untethered jailbreak, or wait for the 4.3.3 untethered jailbreak to be released in the next couple of days.

    I will try to update to a newer version. What is jailbreak? I only have trouble with that site. But use site frequently. Never had any trouble until last few days

    jail breaking allows you to install third party apps/apps that apple didn't approve etc along with the illegal stuff, can't help with jail breaking though, I'm still within apple confines :)

    hope the update sorts your issue out, as it seems strange that it has only recently started
