Can't Connect WiFi - Ask For Password?

I keep finding my ipad dropping it's WiFi connection - in the middle of an active session. Looking at one web page, click a link -> tries to reconnect.

It seems to forget its password - I need to re-enter to reconnect. A real pain.

Cannot Connect To Wifi That Is Not Password Locked
When I search for wifi connections, I will find connections that are full signal and do not have a lock (password protected). Yet when I try to connect, I get an unable to connect error message. If it is not password protected, why can it not be accessed?

Not Connect To Any Password Protected Wifi?
it connects just fine to neighbor's wifi, which is not password protected, but our wifi will not connect. Also would not connect out of state at our two kid's homes on their password protected wifi. Actually it did connect briefly on one of theirs, but never since. I have reinstalled our Linksys and it just won't connect...frustrating to say the least!

Unable To Connect WiFi - Ask For Password?
I am having two issues.

1. My ipad just disconnects from my home Wi-fi network sometimes. It only happened twice. But, I went from my basement to first floor. What the hell? Was wi-fi issue this bad?

2. My ipad is keep asking me to type in my wi-fi password. What the hell!? This happened like 6-7 times in a day. Why? Am I doing something wrong? Or do I have a defective unit? Please be so kind to advise me on what I should do? Go see an apple Genius? I just got my ipad yesterday from

Wifi Wont Connect/giving Invalid Password Error?
Connection worked yesterday, but today, can't connect. It gives the error invalid password, but the password hasn't changed. My iPhone doesn't have any problem, enable, disable, delete and re-setup - no problems at all, but the iPad won't work. Nothing has changed in the Linksys/Cisco Wireless Access point, Model WAP 11. Any ideas or solutions? I don't have the ability to disable security or change the password, the WAP is used by many in the office for testing phone software over wi-fi. No other devices are having the problem. (we write phone software and have 100's of devices). iPad is the only device with this problem.

Won't Connect To Wifi / Can't Find Settings To Connect With Wifi
Here's my issue, I just bought an ipad, and I got the wifi only model because I don't really need a 3G ipad and an iphone 4. I work in a public high school that does have wifi, but no one will tell me how to get on it. They act like it some huge secret, but with all the blocks and restriction on our networks its not like I can access things that are inappropriate if I was using the wifi. Anyway, my question is this... is there anything I can buy that can turn the current wired connection into a wifi hotspot for my classroom. Is there a product that can plug into an ethernet outlet and turn the internet connection that is already there into wireless. I brought my airport express from home with me once, but it did not work.

Any advice would be nice. I love my ipad, and will love it even if I cannot get online at school, but I am not going to give up.

Can't Connect To Wi-fi - Prompts Password And Username
So here's my problem, one of my own making. I went into work for the first time tonight since buying my iPad. When I went to connect to teh wireless network it prompted me to enter my network username and password. I tried this but it didn't allow me to join. I figured I just got my password wrong so changed it to a new password in active directory and tried to join again on my iPad.

It's still not working so I can only assume that I mistyped my username when trying to join for the first time. My problem is that when I try to join the network now, it no longer prompts me for my username. What I want to do is re-enter my network username and password as if it was the first time I went to connect again. I've reset my network settings but this didn't work.

Unable To Connect ITunes - Password Is Invalid?
when I entered my iTunes password, the message stated that "The password is invalid".But my iTunes ID has not changed. The password for both accounts is the same. How can I change my iTunes ID to the new Apple email ID? Could this lack of identical ID's be the reason that my iTunes password is coming up "invalid"? Is there a way to have totally different ID's and passwords for iTunes and Apple accounts or do they have to coincide? Is there any way to change my iTunes ID to my email address?

Cannot Connect To Network - Enter Correct Password
I got my Mom an iPad-16GB-Wifi for Mother's Day.We were at a hotel - I activated it with iTunes on her netbook and it connected fine to the hotel WiFi.She returned home and has been unable to get it to work on the WiFi at home.She has a Linksys WRT54GS router set up to use WEP-128 and a 26-character hex key. We have connected MacBooks, iPhones, and all sorts of Windows hardware to it with no problem using the 26-hex character key as the password The iPad connected to the network (e.g. the password was correct) but it would not get a valid DHCP address; the netbook was working fine.We then switched the linksys to WPA2 - and the same thing happens. The netbook connects but the iPad will not get an address. Again, note that if the key is wrong, the iPad will tell you that it's wrong.

Unable To Connect Wifi And Blutooth / Wifi Greyed Out In Settings
I have a 10 day old iPad. I restored the iPad after experiencing problems after an interrupted download. After the restore I had no Wifi (Wifi greyed out in Settings). No fix possible, the iPad has to be replaced. As I am in Canada and there is no Apple store where I am this means Apple shipping me a box, me shipping the box to them and them shipping a new iPad to me.

Won't Connect With WiFi / Router Works Perfectly With Other Wifi Device
I've had my iPad for a couple of weeks now, and I've nothing but problems maintaining a connection to my wireless router (D-Link WBR-2310) - the router works perfectly with other Wi-Fi devices (non-Apple), but with the iPad 6 inches from the router, the connection fails. It's gotten progressively worse until now it won't connect at all. I've tried a system reset, tried all of the suggestions posted here and elsewhere on the Web - it simply doesn't work. The iPad is defective, plain and simple. This HAS to be resolved. Running iOS 3.2.2 (7B500)

Won't Connect To Wifi / But Public Wifi Appears To Be Connected
I was sitting in the Atlanta airport today and enabled the wifi on my iPad. It recognized something called free public wifi. Touched the screen to enable that, got a check mark and the wifi icon, top left of screen, came on showing the full three bars. However, when I tried to access a web site I got a pop up indicating it could not connect. Regardless of the site, NY Times, Apple, MSNBC, the connection could not be made.
My question is why would the wifi icon come on and the iPad not be able to to make an internet connection?

How Can I See A WiFi Password That My Manager Put?
I took my iPad to work today, my manage saw the iPad and asked me if I knew that our area had a secret WiFi network.

I had no clue. He took my iPad and connected to the hidden network and input the password too.

Both him & I were online w/ the iPad for at least half the day..

My question here can I see what the password is on my iPad, so that w/ my iPod Touch I can connect it to that same hidden WiFi network?

I'm pretty sure my boss won't give me that info..the network is solely for when work laptops need internet, but no one uses WiFi at work cause there are ethernet cables everywhere...but the WiFi still exists (though hiddenly) at work.

I typed in a wifi password into my iPad and it works great. I have since forgotten the password and would like to use the password on my laptop as well....I dont have access to the router or the admin person, so it's up to me pretty much.

Is there a way to find out what the wifi password I typed in was?

Won't Remember My Wifi Password
My Ipad pops off my home wireless network often, which is annoying (no similar problem with laptops). More annoying is that it sometimes wants me to reenter the password to the wireless network, which is something long and unrememberable. If the Ipad remembers it sometimes, shouldn't it always remember it?
