Not familiar with Ipads but you might look in your imac at network preferences and see what setting it has for internet. Since both are Apple it would seem to be the same type setting.

Is there a way I can get free access on my ipad mini

Theres only three ways to connect to the internet depending on the iPad you have.

4G (If you have a 4G iPad)
Hotspot from your phone. Most phones can share your data and create its own wifi network, sharing it to your iPad.

How do I stay connected to the Internet when I leave my house?

You have a WiFi device that must send/receive signals from your home wireless system. That generally doesn't extend much out of the home. You need to find a free wifi zone or kupgrade to an iPad with cellular service that connects you like a built-in phone.

Need to download iOS 8.0.1 on my apple ipad keeps telling me it failed because I am not o internet, but I know that I am connected to the iternet what is wrong?

if you have laptop/desktop computer you can sync the iPad with iTunes and download iOS 8.1.2 there:
Upgrading iPad to iOS 8: Through iTunes 1. Backup your iPad
Open iTunes. Select your iPad in iTunes and click Back Up Now.
2. Restart your iPad and your Computer
3. Download and Install the Update
Go to iTunes -> Select iPad -> Check for Update -> Click Download and Update
Whichever method you choose, the process will take quite some time to work depending on how much free storage you have on your iPad, your internet connection, and how Apple's servers are doing with upgrades. Occasionally, Apple will either not let you download the upgrade or it will fail. For iOS 8, you must have an iPad 3 or newer. This does not work with the original iPad - if something goes wrong, restart your device, and try again.

My iPad keeps telling me I am not connected to the Internet when I am trying to download ios7.4 upgrade. Yet I know I am.

Internet connections can fail at any point from service provider to your iPad. Just being connected to a wifi network doesn't necessarily mean you still have full internet access. Your modem could be frozen and your wifi router would still seem to be fully functional. Try opening your ipad's web browser and bringing up a couple websites. If you can not get any websites loaded, try troubleshooting your wifi. But if they do load, then yes, you are indeed connected to the internet, and I would recommend restarting the iPad and trying again.

I have no wireless connection to my ipad if i am in a different room from router d-link

Is your router sending out SSID broadcast messages so it can locate the iPad? Some people disable this feature, and the router can't locate the iPad or vice a versa. I don't think that is the problem though, you may have to much interference with walls and such and are not getting a strong enough signal. Check to see if your router is sending a strong signal on your iPad. If not, that could be it. If not, I am not really sure why this is happening. It really seem like a signal problem to me.

How can I change the Account Settings on my iPad - I do not know the password?

No password, no access. You seem to need to 'Restore iPad' through iTunes (connect iPad to computer and open iTunes, you need internet connection to download system). All data will be lost through a restore, unless you back up (but without password you probably don't access the data anyway...).

Problem ipad

Either wrong pass word (phrase) or you don't have an (IP) Internet Provider. I assume you have a wireless device such as a router. If you can find it's name on the iPad in the settings you should be able to connect, even if you have to enter a password (passphrase) as will be requested if set (and it should be). Are you running the browser? How do you know it's not connected? Error messages really help here...

Cannot connect to google

Hi Elizabeth

The problem may be related to 4 things. The first two would indicate you having no internet access whatsoever.

1. Your Wireless on the iPad is not connected or shut off. The simple quick check is to look for the three gray bars in the top left. If they don't show then your likely not connected to a Wireless Network. If that is the case see if your Wireless is even turned on. To do so go to settings > Wi-Fi (ensure that it is on) > then choose your wireless network.

2. The airplane mode, it is possible that your iPad is in airplane mode, to check this look in the same corner as to where your wireless symbol should be and see if there is a little airplane. If that is the case go into your settings > airplane mode and turn it off.

3. The third option is that you are at a Wireless Hot Spot (Starbucks, Tim Hortons, McDonalds, or a hotel etc.) What they usually do is have you connect to your wireless network then having to agree to their wireless terms of use. Once you do that you get access to the rest of the Internet but only when you agree.

4. It could be that your router/internet connection isn't working. To test this it is easy if you have another computer/device that uses the internet. See if they can connect properly and if they do refer to answers 1 and 2 of mine.

I hope I was able to help you.
Let me know if you need anymore help.
