My Ipad won't recognize the wireless router. It was okay but something has happened

networkwiz :

To connect the ipad to the internet you must have the router details handy

ssid and router passcode

then you follow these steps

Start the iPad

•Tap on the Settings app. The Settings icon

Once in the settings application, you will be at the General Settings screen

Tap on the Wi-Fi category to get to the screen where you will connect to a wireless network

When you reach this screen, the iPad will start searching for Wi-Fi networks that are in range and that are broadcasting their names. As it discovers available networks it will list them under the Choose a Network... label. Please note that it may take some time for the iPad to see all of the available networks, so please be patient while it searches. You can tell that it is searching as there will be an animated symbol next to the Choose a Network... label while it is searching. If it does not find anything, it will pause for about a minute and then attempt to search again.

When you see the Wi-Fi network that you would like to connect to, simply tap on it to attempt to join it. If it has a lock next to the name, then it will require you to enter a wireless encryption password XXXXX order to connect to it as discussed in the next step.


•Once you Tap on a network name, it will try to connect to it. If the network is not using encryption, then you can just skip to this step . If the network is using wireless encryption, though, you will be presented with a screen asking you to enter the wireless encryption password

In the password XXXXX enter the wireless encryption password XXXXX is required to join this network. This password XXXXX originally set on your wireless router, and if you do not remember this password XXXXX you can logon to the router and change the password XXXXX a new one. Please note that if you change the password XXXXX the router, then any other devices that connect to this device wirelessly will also need to have their settings changed to use the new password.


•The iPad will now attempt to connect to the network, and when finished, will display the Wi-Fi settings screen again, but this time with the joined network listed and with a checkmark next to it

This checkmark designates that your iPad is connected to the network. You can also see that your iPad is connected to a wireless network as in the upper left-hand corner you will see the word iPad with the Wi-Fi symbol ()next to it. You can now go back to your home screen and use any apps that require Wi-Fi connectivity

Let me know how it goes.
