I just got my IPad. My Wifi is hidden and needs the IPad mac address. Just can't seem to connect. Have tried a few 1000 times.

You mean that your WiFi access point has MAC address filtering enabled?

Then go to General/About on your iPad. You'll see WiFi-address. The 12 hex-digit code listed there is the MAC address. You should add to your AP MAC address list.
