    IPAD on Belkin N+

    My Ipad will connect on Belkin N+ using WPA/WPA2 but will lose its WIFI connection after it sleeps.

    I discovered that using WEP128bit, it will work perfectly and will recover WIFI Connection perfectly after waking up.

    I had been using this setup for 2 days now, ZERO issues, just perfect.

    DISCOVERED ALSO, my Apple TV behaves the same as my IPAD. It now could recover its WIFI connection from sleep.

    Everything just works perfectly now.

    Belkin N+ has the newest firmware 2.01.08
    IPAD iOS 4.2.1. (8C148)

    I am using WEP 128 Hex now because I don't want to keep on restarting WIFI ON and OFF just to recover from Sleep.

    My only concern now is that WEP is easily hackable.

    Pirchryn, do you have an iPad?

    Just wondering since it seems like you don't know its build quality. If you have an iPad, what have you found on your iPad that would deteriorate your opinion of Apple?

    Yes, you are entitled to your opinion but reading about the iPad versus actually owning one and using one AND basing your opine on actual use, is far more credible.

    Sorry clrk9000, I didn't mean to highjack your post...you were saying....

    I don't think it is the iPad. I use WPA2 with no problem at all on my iPad. No issues with it waking up and getting back in wifi. Don't have to restart wifi for it to work.

    These are generally issues on the router side. I don't have a Belkin, I have a Cisco, and it is highly customized for media sharing and remote desktop and Splashtop and FTP access. Computers, especially Windows, can compensate for fluctuations with a router, especially if it is a "zero setup" router, however other devices cannot.

    I had the same issue with my N+ router and I purchased a dual band netgear router. Zero issues whatsoever since the new router. You may want to look into a different router.

    I agree with this one. I use WPA2 at home and at the office. No issues whatsoever on waking up. Im using a CISCO and and a LINKSYS.

    My iPAD recognizes them immediately .

    Yes I own an Ipad just frustrating that I have to reconfigure my router from WPA2 to 128 WEP. I have done so and it now works flawlessly, however I am disappointed with the IPAD needing to downgrade to older technology just for use. It cannot be the router side as I was using a wireless printer, macbook, iphone, blackberry, and tablet off the router without any problems. I think Apple needs to figure out why the IPAD is having issues with Belkin routers, it is not for the consumer who pays top dollar for their product to struggle with simple use.

    Just my two cents.

    Well, I installed a Belkin wireless N Router last week and my iPad has no problems connecting to it what so ever. It also did perfectly fine with the linksys router I had before Belkin, that is until the router corked off on me.

    As far as Apples quality going downhill in general I strongly disagree. I also have an Apple Magic Mouse and a wireless keyboard (bt). Both are great.

    I would think if there is an issue connecting to your router that it might be related to interference from other wireless networks. I live in a very rural area and I'm still able to pick up one or two other wireless networks. My nearest neighbor is over a football field away.

    Pirchryn, Why Should Apple Fix a Belkin Product?

    If I used your logic, every time a pothole appears on the streets of Fort Wayne, I should contact BMW to get the pothole filled because every time I drive over the pothole, it creates a problem for my car?

    Of course I could do what you did and change lanes or take another route that is a pothole free street (you reconfigured your router from WPA2 to 128 WEP) but the problem persists, the pothole remains, so I'm going to call the City of Fort Wayne and report the pothole. You might want to go to Belkin and see what they can do to update your router that they sold you.

    Apple Ipad vs. Belkin N+

    With due respect to other posters, I believe the problem lies in Belkin N+ rather than the Ipad.

    I noticed also that changing the TIMEZONE while on WAP or WPA2 will cause the router to crash. Definitely, there is a bug in its firmware.

    ON WEP, I could change the TIMEZONE just perfectly without causing the router to crash.

    THIS OBSERVATION ONLY APPLIES TO BELKIN N+ and Apple Ipad setup.

    For information purposes, Belkin N+ and the Apple Ipad are running perfectly since Nov. 29 with ZERO issues.

    For those who have similar setup, Belkin N+ and Ipad ONLY, please do post your own observation.
