    My ipad 2 has the most recent ios update. It won't open certain websites [e.g. roku.com] that never gave me a problem before. I get error message that connection to server timed out. Also, it is very slow now.

    Welcome to iPad Forums!

    Is your iPad up to date? The latest software is 9.3.1. It fixed a problem with Safari not opening website links and crashing.

    If you haven't done so yet, reboot your iPad. Press and hold Home and Power button simultaneously until the Apple logo appears. As soon as it's visible, let go of both buttons. Your device will power up on it's own.

    If this doesn't help, restore your iPad using iTunes. Make sure there's a most recent backup to restore from (iCloud or iTunes). Connect your iPad to iTunes and restore it. This will install a fresh version of the latest software on your device, and should help getting rid of your issue.
