Did you already try to reset the network settings in Settings/General/Reset on the 32GB iPad?
After that you'll have to fill in the passwords for all Wi-Fi connections again, but your autoconnect option should be back again.

Did you try to set it up as new device, without using the latest backup afterwards?

Yes I set it up as new device and I don't have the autoconnect option. Is there a way to reset the ipad to the factory settings ? Than I can try again to install the iOS 5.1. I suspect that the update to iOS 5.1 is not running correctly.

Click on the blue link above in my last post, to find out how to set up your device to factory settings.
You can also try to erase the firmware file before you start, to make iTunes download a new copy.
Rename, move, or delete the iOS software file (.ipsw)
iTunes uses "ipsw" files to restore your iPod or iPhone. If those files are unusable, then try deleting them, renaming them, or moving the file to a different directory. This will cause iTunes to download a new copy of the IPSW. When a restore issue is specific to a user, it is likely due to an unusable .ipsw file. If removing the .ipsw file does not resolve a user-specific restore issue, then the issue is caused by other user-specific security software settings or iTunes preferences. Creating a new user will also cause new .ipsw restore files to be downloaded in the new user. You can find the ".ipsw" files in these locations:
Mac OS X
~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates
~/Library/iTunes/iPad Software Updates
~/Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates
Note: The tilde "~" represents your Home directory.
C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates
C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPad Software Updates
C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates
Note: If you don't see the Application Data folder, you may need to show hidden files.

If I used the option "Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings" only the user settings and the information by removing the encryption key that protects the data. That all have no effects on the wifi options. I get a new ipad with the iOS 4.3.5 and there isn't the option autocconect.
