Look at iOS Troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks and connections  http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1398

Additional things to try.


Try this first. Turn Off your iPad. Then turn Off (disconnect power cord) the wireless router & then back On. Now boot your iPad. Hopefully it will see the WiFi.


Go to Settings>Wi-Fi and turn Off. Then while at Settings>Wi-Fi, turn back On and chose a Network.


Change the channel on your wireless router. Instructions at http://macintoshhowto.com/advanced/how-to-get-a-good-range-on-your-wireless-netw ork.html


Another thing to try - Go into your router security settings and change from WEP to WPA with AES.
