perhaps Old Gringo, its a conspiracy to keep you @ home????
Apple Tech says it's a software problem, which they will fix for $60. I'm calling bs, at least for now. Time for a road trip for me and my Pad...lookin' for a hot spot...
It may be time for a new router. Works a treat, here in town.
OpenDNS Servers - 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206
(This all assumes that an actual power-down of the iPad, router, cable/dsl modem doesn't fix the issue.)

Also, you might try turning off the iPad by holding the power button down and then powering it back up. Mine looses the wifi connection sometimes and that corrects it. Just putting it to sleep does not. I've even turned off the wifi in Settings and turned the wifi back on and had the connection come back.
I thought they used smoke signals down your way

Thanks to all for your help. We've tried everything that has been suggested, to no avail. It's beginning to look like my satellite ISP is the culprit. There were some mutterings about "security protocols"... Just one of the bennies of living in BFE. <shrug>
