iPad loses WiFi connection after restarting

I set up a friends new 3rd gen iPad yesterday and there was one issue...I was showing him how to turn off and then restart the iPad and noticed that when I did that it lost the WiFi connection, and I had to go back into Settings, WiFi and re-enter the wireless network password.

I thought it was a fluke but turned it off and on again, and the same thing happened. What could be the problem? I do not see a way to set the default network, and I have set up a few other iPads and have never had this problem.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Try this:

Forget the network then go to "other," enter the network name, then the password.
