iPad appears to connect to wifi but internet doesn't work Reply Topic

Hello, wondering if anyone can kindly help
I have an iPad, 32 gb, NOT 3G model. The software is up to date and running version 4.3.1.
When I try to connect to my home Wifi, the iPad appears to connect - it accepts the password and the signal icon appears at full strength in the top left hand corner. However I cant get on the internet (Safari comes up wth the error message Cannot open page: Safari cannot open the page because it is not connected to the internet) and likewise no other apps that require online access work (mail, etc)
I have made sure the software was up to date. Ive tried reseting network settings, restarting and choosing network again as per the Apple site instructions.
The wifi is definitely working fine as Im typing this on my iBook which is also on wifi - my iPhone also picks it up fine.
Last week I took it to a cafe with Wifi and it worked fine, though I havent been able to try that again today.
Please do let me know if Ive missed off any vital details here, am at a loss as to what to do next
Many thanks

I am having the exact same problem right now, connects to the wifi and even shows the bars but the Internet does not work. It doesnt work on my iPhone either, but my 360 connects fine. It was working last night right before I went to sleep, really odd.

I experience this problem every time the electric power goes down. First, I disconnect the power cord to the cable modem and the wireless router. Plug the power cord into the modem first and make sure all the lights glow. Then plug the power cord into the router. It works for me every time. Yes, the bars show but that doesnt mean that it is connected to the internet in my case.

That sounds like a firewall is enabled in your Internet modem/router.

Im not sure how I would access that info, but at any rate the modem isnt new, and the ipad until recently was working fine - if this was the problem, would it appear out of nowhere like this? Weve changed nothing else.

No, it certainly would not magically appear. I had not realized that the iPad had previously accessed the modem. Its just as well because accessing the modems administrative menu can sometimes be a real pain.

I was having the same problem (Im on At&T UVerse at home) and I just pulled the plug on the router and reset it. Now the iPad works again! I was about to send the darn thing back!

I am having the exact same issue with my 32g wifi iPad. I have reset the Internet settings per AppleCare and have to have the device forget my network and resign in to get the wifi to work even though the status bar show connectivity.
Does anyone have a solution for this

Im having the same problem. It started after I upgraded to 4.3. It will connect to our network but it wont stay connected. It drives me nuts, especially when Im using Netflix or Hulu. The desktops work fine, but not the iPad.
