I'm using the ipad on a uk virgin superhub N router as me main DHCP and a netgear wpn824 b/g wireless router( access point )as second router for older device like a DS ,psp ,htc desire ,iphobe 3g,dell laptop ,asus netbook. Like i said on above post. It does and will affect certain wireless router if connected with b/ g and N device( crash).Originally Posted by linnormlord
Most 802.11n products will knock your throughput down by up to 80% if you use WEP or WPA/TKIP security. The reason is that the 802.11n spec states that the high throughput rates (link rates above 54 Mbps) can't be enabled if either of those outdated security methods are used.
The only exceptions are some products that are not Wi-Fi certified for 802.11n. The Wi-Fi Certification test suite checks for proper operation with WEP, WPA and WPA2. But if manufacturers don't submit their products for Certification, they may not lock out the higher rates. We also found early products using Ralink silicon also improperly enabled the higher rates when WEP and WPA/TKIP were used. But Ralink-based products that are Wi-Fi Certified now properly lock out the higher rages.
The bottom line is that you can only use WPA2/AES wireless security (or no security at all) if you don't want to throw away lots of speed.
[/quote]Reconfiguring your router/AP to improve iPad WLAN performance: This iPad WLAN support note posted by Apple indicates that the iPad does not always properly reconnect to a WLAN after being restarted or waking up. Early reports suggest this may be an interoperability issue experienced with some dual-band simultaneous routers when security parameters are not identical for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios. To work around this, Apple recommends reconfiguring your router/AP to assign a different SSID to each radio -- for example, name your 2.4 GHz WLAN "net2" and your 5 GHz WLAN "net5." Alternatively, make sure the security parameters for both radios are identical -- it's generally a bad idea to apply the same SSID to WLANs that impose different requirements on clients. After renaming/reconfiguring your router/AP, tell your iPad to "forget" those networks so that it will rediscover and reconfigure all associated parameters (including security settings).[quote]
Hi all, i have the same problem with my Belkin N+
The problem though happened after i changed my previous iPad ( with fw 3.2) that worked perfectly with my router.
It suddenly presented a defect on the screen and i returned it to apple that sent me a new one (with fw 4.1)
The new one had the wifi issue, but i don't know if it's related to the new iPad or to the new firmware (i think this second)
I tried a lot of solutions, i didn't fix the problem but i found that activating guest secondary ssid the connection keep going (but you can use this only for external connection, and doesn't work if you need to connect to nas or other lan devices)
However i resolved using my old g router for iPad e keeping my Belkin for all the rest, but i hope that new fw 4.3 will fix this annoying issue once for all
New iOS did not fix the wifi problem lol

After a year, I have a similar problem.
I purchased my iPad (Model MB293LL, iOS V 4.2.1) last summer has been working flawlessly on my Linksys E3000 wireless network with my iMac and my MacBook Pro for all that time. This morning I turned on my iPod to download a Kindle book from Amazon com, and received the following message: Cannot Open Page. Server stopped responding. Thereafter, I have been unable to connect to the internet with my iPod. My iMac works fine and the MacBook Pro which is located upstairs connects just fine. I have tried to connect to the iTunes store, Washington Post, and the New York Times via my iPad and receive pop up windows with messages similar to this: Cannot Open Page. This application cannot log you in due to low or no connectivity.
Obviously the problem lies with my iPad. Do any of you have any suggestions? I have already gone into my wifi settings on the iPod and clicked on "Forget this Network" and then reactivated it without any success. Do any of you iPad aficionados have any suggestions?
Most of the router issues can be solved with a simple firmware update, if there are no recent updates, I would try a new router, my belkin stopped giving me updates for lil over a year and after that nothing but problems, very happy with my netgear one works great!

Not everyone has to agree with your point of views, but at some point they need to accept Them!
i think my problem is getting worse.... im confused :s

Hey all, experienced the same problem with my iPod touches and iPad once I changed to WPA on my Belkin N+ router. I'm usually pretty good about keeping up on the firmware but also don't rush into an upgrade just in case it'll cause more harm than good. Anyway, it looks like Belkin just release a firmware update as of March 4, 2011 for the version 2 router series. I downloaded and applied it last night and so far so good. Things seem to be back to how they were when using WEP. More testing to do but would suggest giving this a try. My model router is F5D8235-4 v2. Have two 2nd gen iPod touches and one original iPad that were all having this issue.
I have the same problem with a new NETGEAR router.
My computer (running PUPPY Linux) runs happily on the router all day but the IPAD which did access the net for two weeks now says that there is no Internet connection!
It indicates that it has a strong connection to router but can,t see the Internet!
It sounds like an IPAD problem to me!
How does one reset the Ipad's antenna?
