    If it is saying incorrect PW, that is your router communicating that message to your device.

    Rule out any issues with your device by trying to connect to another known good network such as a friends, library, or fast food joint. If it connects without issue, then the problem lies in the PW for your network. You may have to contact the manufacturer of your router for assistance in resetting it's PW.

    I can connect too other networks easily but other people in the household have all got ipads and iphones and are connected to the internet via the router and it just makes me wonder if it is a problem with my ipad

    Make sure your routers firmware is updated. Furthermore, try configuring the router per the recommended settings: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4199

     

    Then try resetting the router and rebooting the tablet to see if that changes anything. Last restort, create a backup, and restore the ipad as new to further troubleshooting.

    Being able to connect to other networks proves your ipad is working the way it is expected to. Try going into settings, general, reset and reset your network settings. Then power cycle the device by pressing and holding the power button until you see the slide to power off screen. Reboot and try to reconnect to your network. If it still fails you may want to look into making sure the firmware is up to date on your router or change the PW to your network and try joining again.
