    Well, I did like the Apple consultant told me and cleared at the Safari cache, history and cookies.
    Went up to Panera and have connection the the network and Internet!

    You might want to try that to see if that gets your iPad going

    Thank you - that might have solved a similar iPhone issue with Cisco routers at a university !

    Frequently Universities and the like need to register the MAC address of the different devices that will be accessing their network. Could this be the problem you are experiencing? It will show your connected to the network but will not assign an IP. Wishing you luck.

    Looks like Apple just posted an article that may work for some of these wifi issues.

    I don't understand what Apple means in that article. WHERE am I supposed to do this? In the AirPort Extreme Base Station settings? Is it possible that the iPad uses 11n while my AEBS is only 11b/11g?

    Yes, on the router itself (AirPort or otherwise). I have a feeling this may fix other things not listed in the article itself.

    OK. However, after re-reading the article I realized that it doesn't apply to me since:

    1. I use an Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station (11b/g model)
    2. I only have ONE network here at home.

    Also, I re-checked the iPads WiFi specs and it is 11a/b/g/n capable so it should work with my 11b/g AEBS.

    I had problems logging onto my password protected wifi at work. I had an IP address of 169. After clearing the Safari cache, cookies and what not, I still could not get on the internet even though I had full bars. I was able to use the internet on my open wifi at home all weekend. My iTouch has never had this problem

    I set up the wifi router with the password myself, so I checked my iP address for my iTouch and iMac which were both 192.

    I went online and typed in 169. IP address Mac in google. I found out that all I needed to do was reset my router. I unplugged the router from the ethernet cable and the power supply. Just to double check it.

    When I rebooted the iPad and went to settings. I got my 192 IP address and now I am online at work.

    Course I will have to check if I have the same problem at Starbucks or at other password sensitive routers.

    I hope this works for any of you.

    i seem to be having the same problem. i have a cable modem --> airport. my imac can connect to the airport and connect to the internet, BUT my ipad can connect only to the airport. no internet.

    the imac is given an ip address that starts with 66; the ipad is given something like 192. (which sounds like it means it's not really being given an ip address at all, right?)

    i've tried to clear safari history, cache, cookies to no avail. any other suggestions?
