Hey there, Cdhart61!

Welcome to the Apple Support Communities. From your post, I'm understanding that your iPad mini doesn't seem to maintain connection with your home Wi-Fi network, even though other devices in the home have no issues. I need my iPad to connect to Wi-Fi most of the day, so I know it's important that it connects reliably. I'm happy to help!

The first recommendation I would make is to go through the steps outlined here: If your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch won’t connect to a Wi-Fi network - Apple Support .

I would also suggest removing all other devices from your network and connecting just the iPad mini. Some networks may limit the number of devices that can be connected at one time. This can result in devices added after that limit has been met to have trouble getting, and staying, connected. If the iPad mini has no trouble while the only device connected, try removing other devices from the network when not in use.

Have a good day!
