is it always the same websites?

what firmware is your iPad? if 3.x, it could be that the safari app in that version is too old and doesn't fully support that website,in which case, update to 4.x

why do you say you wifi connection is bad?

even with 1 bar it should load sites properly, unless someone nearby is using a microwaves or something that is effecting the signal, I say this because whenever someone uses the microwave in my house, my wifi dies :(

Your Wifi is most likely running on the 2.4GHz band. If your wifi router supports the 5GHz band, you could change it to that and the wifi should be unaffected from microwaving.

If you have not done so, restarting the iPad is always worth a try.

Hold down the power button until the red power off slider appears, and power off. After the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.

Besides outright glitches, the grey screen appears for several reasons.

Sometimes is it simply incompatible content from the website. This isn't all that common, but if you're browsing habits happen to take you those sites a lot, then I might be often for you.

Some types of popups do this. To prevent this go into Settings app >> Safari, and disable popups.

I've had advertisements do this. The kind that cover all or most of the web page, but for some reason don't count as popups so they are not blocked. When this happens a careful examination of the screen (you may have to scroll to the top right) shows an standard x-in-a-box to close. Tapping on it will usually close the advertisement.

And other times it just happens. All you can do is restart and try again. For most of us it's a rare thing. I'm hoping a restart will turn it back into a rare problem for you.

if it is intermittent and random websites, it could just be the website is busy or your Internet connection to the ISP is bogged down

I'm getting desperate. I still have to close down my wifi connection to get acces to the internet. After reconnecting I can browse to every site even download mail or getting acces to this forum. It is strange cause the wifi symbol is indicating that I have a connection but I can't get acces..... Help

what make and model is your router, as that is the only other thing I can think of, a firmware update? as it sounds like the connection is going to sleep due to inactivity, but is then not detecting active and reawakening.

do you have access to another router to try out?

when did you install the range extender? as that might be the cause

when it locks up, is the router overly warm?
