Can we take it you've done all this:

Usually you just find your own network then input the pass phrase (pass key).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

First place to start is by resetting your network settings on the iPad itself.

1. Tap on the settings icon on your iPad
2. Tap on "General"
3. Scroll to the bottom and tap on "Reset"
4. Tap on "Reset network settings" and enter passcode if required.
5. Follow the prompts to reset your network settings.

If the iPad has a SIM card the iPad will detect your mobile settings and reconnect to your mobile network (3G or 4G or whatever it may be).

For your home network you will be required to select your network (awesome family?) and re-enter your wireless password / key.

Oh I see. You're setting up the iPad like a new one.

You are trying to connect to the home network to complete the iPad setup. If it is not allowing you onto the network it can really only be for 2 reasons. First, you're typing in the password incorrectly to connect. Have you checked the password for capital letters. Make sure you are typing the individual characters exactly as they are. Observe each "key press" as you're typing to be sure that the characters match. In the case of numerals make sure you differentiate between the letter O and the numeral 0. Often the letter B can be mistaken for the numeral 8. Second make sure your router doesn't have MAC filtering enabled for the meantime. MAC filtering only lets permitted devices to connect even if the password is correct.
