    Can you please describe how you've downloaded it and where you've opened it? The iPad does not have a means of sharing a common folder between applications. You have to "open in" from one application to another. To open in Adobe Reader, you will can email the file to yourself and "Open in" after long pressing on the file in the iPad mail application. Alternatively, you can use "open in" when you are viewing the file in Safari.

    This means that there is a problem between your browser (Almost surely Safari) and the website. If the PDF downloaded successfully, you could then "Open in" Adobe Reader. Do you have a sample link you can share so I can verify? I'd recommend contacting the website owner to start with.
