If you are connected to wifi in your house and you leave it will automatically go from wifi to 3G when the wifi signal is no longer available. When you return home it should automatically connect to the wifi again when the signal is sensed.
If this is not occurring I would recommend a hard reset at first. If this still doesn't fix the problem try resetting your network settings. This will erase all wifi passwords but may fix the problem. When in doubt you can always try a restore and go from new.

Some routers are not very compatable with Apple products. I had a netgear, and it would never connect or if it did, would drop regularly. So often, i purchased a new router, which solved the problem 100%!
Since, i googled it and found a few routers are finiky with Apple devices.

Yes, you can buy a mobile hotspot (or get a free one) from Verizon. You just turn it on and you can connect to it with your iPad through wifi.
