    I know it sounds silly but make sure airplane mode is off and wifi is on in settings.

    Try a reset on it I would. Hold down power button and home button till it switches off and back on. As soon as you see the Apple logo let go of both buttons and try connecting again....

    Restore then?! If all the settings are correct and a restore doesn't fix it then surely it's a hardware problem? Have you tried to disconnect the working iPad from the router and then try?

    Try temporarily turning off the security settings on your WiFi router (make it an OPEN network) and see what happens. If the problem device connects to an open network then go back and review your security settings on both the router and the problem device. Is your WiFi router set up to supply a sufficient number of IP addresses for all of your WiFi devices? Some routers are set-up to dole out IP addresses within a specific range, exceed the number of addresses available and the last device to try to connect may not be assigned an IP address by your router and thereforee will not be connected . Let us know if you come up with an answer.
