How to fix iPad’s Wi-Fi connection problems

Some users have encountered problems while trying to connect the iPad to a Wi-Fi hotspot. As Apple states, the iPad may sometimes get the following error: “Cannot Connect to Wireless Access Point” while trying to rejoin a wireless network, after a restart or sleep. This problem can occur when the targeted Wi-Fi has a third party router capable of dual-band.
