    Wifi loosing connection

    Is anybody suffering from this problem? After a week of extensive usage I had this issue; I loose wifi connection every now and then with my home network. And I cannot have it back until I reset my router. At the beginning I thought it might be a router issue BUT other devices at home had no problem at all. Plus today I had the same problem when connected over my iPhone's personal hot spot. Did not get it back until I restarted the iPhone.
    Any clue?

    I had the same issue and after giving my iPad a fixed ip the issue has been fixed. This is the case especially if you have a 2 wire router. Good luck

    I would suspect your router

    Fortunately they are cheap. I have no problems anywhere with either my iPad or my iPad2. No losing connections.

    I think I have lost connection a few times. My 3G bill says I have been using it at home. I didn't notice the switch until I seen the bill.
    I have turned the 3G off for a few days and haven't lost connection during those days.

    I have had issues with disconnects when connected to my 5G wifi, but when I switched over to the 2.4g connection the problem stopped.

    Thank you guys for the input. I have searched the issue and obviously lots of people had it
    I've tried couple of things; reset the network and disabled the 3G
    So far so good.
    Will let u know if the trick worked.
