ipad connected to home Wifi but cannot access internet

WiFi is functioning fine - all other devices in the home are connecting and have internet access. 

iPad is getting full WiFi signal  (and I'm sitting 15 ft away from the router with no walls in between). 

Through Safari, iPad gets a message like "cannot access website - server not responding".   iPad functions such as "Software Upgrade" also cannot access internet and reach the AppStore (so I don't believe this is a Safari issue)

If I switch the iPad to my AT&T hotspot, everything works fine. 

 

Any ideas or suggestions?  iPad was at version 13.2 and this problem caused me a lot of problems getting updated to 13.4 but I finally got through the upgrade.

Are you associating it with your home network's current WiFi broadcast name (SSID) and your WiFi network's current password / network security key ?

yes, I connected if successfully to the in house WiFi. I even tried forgetting the network and re-establishing the connection.

I had the exact same problem but I installed a new modem and now everything is perfect. I am just throwing that out there. Is your modem old?
