Since December my Ipad has worked fine. Yesterday it would not connect to home Netgear. I've renewed lease, shut down router and even restored to factory settings. No Luck! I can connect to other places just not at home. Please help with any suggestions.

    The iPad will forget the network names passwords and you'll need to select your WiFi and re-enter the PW.

    If that doesn't work, be aware that a system Reset cures many ills and takes but a minute to perform:
    Hold down the on/off switch and the Home button simultaneously until you see the Apple logo. Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it appears.

    A Reset does NOT delete apps, photos, movies, music or any other data. A Reset does NOT delete any settings for email, network access, etc.

    Also, you might wish to download the 4.2 User Guide. Pay special attention to page 170.

    Tried resetting Ipad but didn't correct problem. Also went to user guide and tried their suggestions but still no luck. Just can't understand why it has worked since December and stopped yesterday. My laptop and itouch still connect but not the ipad. Seems like a lot of people are having this same problem.

    Power off your router, wait thirty seconds and power it on again.
