I have a 2-year old iPad, and (typical of Apple) as soon as my 2-year warranty expired it stopped being able to connect to my home network.  It shows the network on the Wi-Fi screen, the network is strong (4 bars), but it continually tries to connect and is unable to do so.  It worked fine until yesterday.  I've tried turning the unit off and on to no avail.  Please help.  

Thanks,

Phil

Is the iPad currently up to date/ did you recently install a new OS/update?

You can reset your iPad to factory settings or a backup if you backup to the cloud.

Here are the directions to do so if you would like to consider that option:

Go into your system prefs, then wifi, then click on the name of your home wifi and in the next pane, select, "Forget this network".

Then reconnect to the network and it should ask you for a password.

Try what Strung suggested first if you haven't already.

Well at least they know their fruit ha ha. Glad that worked, reset is usually a "cure all" that I use as sometimes it takes longer to diagnose the problem than it does to solve it but in this case I let myself totally forget about that easy wireless fix because I rely on the cure-all too often I fear ha ha
