Thank you for your prompt response
I have not connected to iTunes and or upgraded to 4.3.1 (though neither has the other iPad in the house, which is still accessing the internet)
When I go into settings>WiFi I do see my network's name and the names of several near by. When I reset my network settings and re-logged to my network it asked for my network password XXXXX accepted the password XXXXX when I went into safari it still wasn't connecting.
When I click the blue and white arrow I do see for IP Address 169.x.x.x....Do you need the rest of the address? Also I have tried the renew lease button to no effect.
