This is the third time I have had this problem since I bought my ipad about 6 months ago. What happens is that every time there is a software update my ipad will refuse to connect with any Wi-Fi networks. It will usually be disconnected for about a week and I cannot remember how I fixed it last time...|join-wi-fi-network-ipad-2

My ipad won't accept the password within a network.  The device recognizes the network, asks for a password, but when I enter it, the "join" buttons do not light up.   It's almost as if the ipad wants a longer password, but a mac desktop works just fine with the same password....|join-wifi-network

My ipad was set up to Wi-Fi through my router at home.  The ipad has not been used all day but was left charging for over eight hours (something I usually don't do).  When trying to use the ipad I keep getting the message "Unable to join the network" then the name of my router.  I have reset the network Settings on the ipad and now when I try to connect to Wi-Fi via my router, it asks me for a password and when I enter the password I still get the same message...

When I look in wi-fi connection tab it will show I have bars and when I join it says, unable to join. I have tried "forget this network" and it does not work.
