    Sometimes WiFi can be flaky with the iPad. When something like this happens again, try holding your power and home button in at the same time until the apple logo appears on your screen, this will reset the iPad and may fix the issue. If not, reset your network settings by going to Settings, General, Reset, select "Reset Network Settings", and wait for the iPhone to finish, then connect to WiFi again.

    Try this:

    Turn OFF iPad.
    Turn OFF Netgear by disconnecting from power supply.
    Wait at least 1 minute.
    Turn ON Netgear by reconnecting power supply.
    Wait for Netgear to FULLY restart.
    Turn ON iPad.
    iPad will find Netgear so when it does just select and connect.
    THEN turn Wifi OFF on iPad.
    Then turn Wifi ON on iPad and select Netgear when asked.

    That will hopefully solve your problem.
    Please report back re Yes or No so that others can help if needed.
