    How to Fix the iPad's Wi-Fi Issues

    Apple confirmed that it's aware of the issues and posted some suggestions on how to fix them:

    Symptoms:
    Under certain conditions, iPad may not automatically rejoin a known Wi-Fi network after restart or waking from sleep. This can occur with some third-party Wi-Fi routers that are dual-band capable when:
    • Using the same network name for each network
    • Using different security settings for each network

    Resolution:

    If you encounter this issue, try the following:
    • Create separate Wi-Fi network names to identify each band. This can be done easily by appending one or more characters to the current network name. (Example: Add a G to the 802.11b/g network name and an N to the 802.11n network name.)
    • Ensure that both networks use the same security type (WEP, WPA, WPA2, and so on)
    • If the issue persists, reset your network settings using Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.
    Note: Always ensure that your Wi-Fi router firmware is up to date.

    Yes ... I took my iPad on a biz trip and upon powering it up in the hotel, no wifi at all ... Downtown Philly has tons.

    I hard restarted the iPad and wifi came back .... It sucks but it's the price of early adopting

    My iPad connected fine to my home router but kept failing with the Sprint Overdrive. I ended up just changing from WEP to WPA2 Personal and have not had any trouble since.

    Has this worked for anyone else?
