    I read all the forums but this morning I had to visit a very sick friend and they had WEP and I could not connect with my ipad nor my droid. The same thing happened at another friends house.

    The issue seems to be with the routers' settings rather than the iPad. There is no statistical way that you would get 5 bad iPads in a row, especially since the failing point is the DHCP service of the Router, not getting connected. You are connecting to the routers with WEP, but they are failing on getting a valid IP. That is a different part of the Router settings. You stated you set them all up. Personally, I don't know anything of your background, but it just sounds like the routers are set up wrong. Take a look in those settings and see what it is set to give out.

    And WEP? You really need to use at least WPA for minimal security, but if the routers support WPA2, use it.

    I bought my iPad with 3.2.2 and upgraded to 4.2.1 with no issue concerning WIFI connections at all. The one day I could not get a valid IP on the iPad in a known working coffee shop, they reset their router and everything went back to normal. I never turn off my Wifi even when I know I will be on 3G only for a while, and it picks right back up on wifi when I get into range of a known access point.

    As I posted in another thread, using anything less than WPA2 on a wireless N router will reduce you to a G connection. Another reason to use WPA2.

    I am working fine with WEP.
    Reason I am not on WAP2 is, my Nokia E71 , that does not support WAP2.
    But I sure recommend every one to move into WAP2.
