Hi Rosemary. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

From the iPad home screen when you tap Settings>>Wi-Fi do you see your wireless network

listed? If so, what message do you receive after entering your password ***** trying to connect?

Is there any doubt at all as to what your wi-fi password *****?

If you have a Windows computer connected to the wireless running

either Windows 7, 8 or 10 we can use that to verify the password.

If there's no doubt about the wi-fi password, try this: Remove the power cord from your router for 2 minutes.

On the iPad tap Settings>>General>>Reset>Reset Network Settings.

After the iPad restarts plug the router back in and try to connect again.

We need to verify the wireless password. Can I connect to your computer and do that?
