Hi All,
Just purchased the iPad 2, 16gb, Wi Fi.
I am located in The Canadian Prairies, retired and wanted a lighter device for travel( pics, email, web assist).
Now I have to connect to a self help to set up the iPad 2 for web browser, email, and Wi Fi.
Just updated iTunes on my PC and searched YouTube for how to, but the 2 videos say to connect thhe iPad to the Mac which I don't have.
I will post on a iPad help section.
Thanks,
Grabber.

Hi,
The plug to the PC worked.
Now I go to Settings-Wi Fi , find my network, tap my network name , type the password and
the "join" button does not light up and cannot connect to Wi Fi.
One of the , youtube help sections says to change the router setting to " 802.11N, on my router settings. Scary??
Thanks again,
Grabber

Sorry folks, I was using the incorrect password for the network.
Got connected when I found the right P/W.
I keep my P/W's on a usb drive.
Thanks again.
