Your Directv WiFi is only for Directv wireless receivers, not your iPad. You need to connect your iPad to your home network. Your main receiver should also be connected to your home network.

Not sure what this has to do with DirecTV equipment. Realize that you cannot connect your iPad to the private DirecTV WiFi network. That networks is only used between your Genie DVR, Wireless Video Bridge, and Wireless Mini Genie Clients.

The iPad will connect wirelessly to the router of your INTERNET service.

 

Your iPad will NOT get internet through DirecTV as it is not an internet provider.

 

The DirecTV wireless is only for connecting wireless Mini Genie Clients (C41W or C61W) to the main Genie, exclusively for TV service. This has nothing to do with an iPad or any other personal device.
