I have had Netflix installed for a few weeks but had not tried streaming on it. Our office has only had these ipad 2's for a couple of weeks. Our CFO walked in today saying he just tried his Netflix app and it wouldn't run any movies or tv shows. I tried my pad since we are both Netflix members. My pad did the exact same thing--says it's loading and then returns to the screen where you selected the media from. We have a very robust wifi system in our offices. Suspecting a restriction on the work wifi I tried it on my home wifi with the exact same result--nothing! I have a dedicated 2 mg pipe and I stream Netflix off my wii all the time. I disabled the wifi on the iPad 2, and rolled to 3G, tried it again and it worked perfectly.
Any help is appreciated! The purpose of having wifi is to save 3G charges, especially with bandwidth hogs like movies and tv.
