We have an enterprise network
Unfortunately therein lies the problem.

I am having this same issue, Have you opened the required ports that airplay uses?

If you are using enterprise wifi encryption, it isn't going to work.

Do you know which ports in particular need opening? I have compiled a list of AirPlay ports from the Apple website:
80 - Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)
443 - Secure Sockets Layer (SSL, or "HTTPS")
554 - Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP)
3689 - Digital Audio Access Protocol (DAAP)
5353 - Multicast DNS (MDNS)
Any others that I should be aware of?
I'll check with my colleague and get back to you.

As I mentioned in my first post, we were using radius authentication (enterprise) but we setup a new SSID with WPA authentication (not enterprise) which Apple TV and iPad both successfully connected to.
If both devices can successfully connected to the network then perhaps the problem lies with something we are blocking?

Configuring your Firewall should be as simple as 'allowing access for iTunes', however if you wish to manually check the ports used yourself, the specific ports are:
- 80 TCP (http)
- 123 TCP/UDP (time server)
- 443 TCP (https)
- 554 TCP/UDP (rtsp)
- 3689 TCP (daap)
- 5353 UDP (mdns)

The problem is that many enterprise wireless networks suppress multicast traffic in order to maintain the perfromance of the wireless network in the presense of 100's-1000's of wireless devices. Multicast traffic is required in order for MDNS to work.
Airplay and MDNS are not enterprise ready protocols, so I would expect pushback from your wireless network admins.
Use a cable.

To make this work you just need to hardwire the Apple TV. If they are mapped correctly the ipad should still be able to see it on the network.

nikez24k, did you make any progress on this problem?

I am i maths and physics teacher and I have the same problem. For now I connect the Apple TV to my iPad's personal hotspot, which works quite well. I'd still like to find a solution for this though...
