Cannot get internet on my Apple ipad. Problem started yesterday.
Wi-fi in the house ok as I can connect on my main frame.
Have checked settings but Wi-fi area says OFF and will not allow me to change it to ON which is what I usually do when I lose a connection.

When I go into Reset Network Settings on my ipad it asks me for my PASSCODE and I have no idea!

ok, you or someone there set this, its personal that you choose.
Try 0000 or 1234 or try to think of a number you would have set.

It worked! Thankyou so mucH

I used the same pass code as I use to open ipad and it worked. Didn't realise that password ***** pass code were the same thing.

Thank you once again.

It was the firmware that had an issue, and needed a hard restart. We did this just then. It will now be ok.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
