    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    I saw your suggestions for routers, so I'm certain you'll soon get some good advice. Most of the problems members have experienced with routers have been due to outdated firmware so, if you're purchasing a new router you should be in good shape.

    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    Am I right assuming that you already have broadband at home? If so, you must have already an ADSL modem installed, so this is not something to worry about. Any wifi router will work for you, if you already have the ADSL modem.

    However, there are a few things to consider. The modem usually only has 1 ethernet output, which will be connected to the wifi router. So unless the wifi router also has a second ethernet output, you would have to connect the computer via Wifi as well.

    Anyway, most wifi routers should work with the iPad, but if you are looking for something that just works, then Apple's AirportExpress is a good wifi router. Especially if you intend to also stream music wiressly to speakers.

    For what it's worth, I have the following routers and both work flawlessly with my wifi iPad:

    Linksys WRT160N: A couple of years old, but good performance. This will work fine for most homes and small businesses, but I found that I needed a little more range so I could connect from my hammock in the back yard so...

    Cisco E4200: This thing rocks! I have a large home but I can get a solid connection from anywhere on my property.

    I to have the cisco e 4200 just have it a few days now and it dose rock it's as good as having it hard wired . Also apple makes a few router that I am sure are very good and match your iPad . But I would think any top brand . N router would work

    You first need to make sure that you only need a router or one with a build-in modem. Where I live I need the modem as well. I suggest you look for an ASDL model that has 4 Gigabyte ethernet ports. That way you can, if you want, connect your computers, etc. Also via cable and so increase the speed.
