You'll need .to provide more information. What happens when you try to connect? Does your wifi require a password, and are you entering it correctly?

I've found that my 2-Wire gateway for my U-Verse service has a few ssues with my Apple devices. It generally starts with the iPad 2, then goes to the iPhone 4, and eventually impacts the MacBook Pro. I used to have similar issues with my 5-6 year old LinkSys router before I got U-Verse. For both devices, a quick "power cycle" (turn off then turn back on) resolves the problem for several weeks to months, then it happens again. The last two times, I was able to get the 2-Wire gateway to wrk with the iPad just by telling it to disable the wireless, then after saving that setting, re-enabling the wireless feature on the gateway. That way, it only impacts the wireless devices in teh house, and not the wired ones.

I have connected successfully with wifes Iphone as well as Toshiba lap top with finding net work and entering password (on body of 2 wire router). However when attempting to switch from 3G to wireless home net work with Ipad2, the Ipad won't offer the password login. Tried power off on 2wire router and 'Reset' on Ipad with partial success when tried to login to network but Ipad never switched to WiFi. Fortunately the 3G telephone works for connection except won't allow down load of Games or files larger than 20mb.

You didn't enable MAC address filtering on our 2-Wire deivce did you? I know that the recommendations used ot be to not broadcast your SSID, and to enable MAC Address filtering, but those have proven to cause more problems for you the user than for the hackers, so they are no longer recommended. A strong WPA or WPA2 encryption key using AES is the currently recommended "best security" practice for wireless networks. Many Apple devices don't like connecting to networks which don't broadcast their SSID and it is still very easy to et the SSID from a router with that turned off...
