    I've been having this problem too. Googled it and 1 suggestion said this happens to some people after they have done a software update? Solution was to go to settings, wi fi, select the relevant network and use "forget this network". After it removes the info then proceed to re-recognise the network. Apparently it has fixed the problem for some people. Am yet to try it - trying to locate the password/code I need! Let me know if it helps anyone please!

    I'm not sure about credit card information in setting cellular data will help you connect to the internet because there is not such thing in the cellular data.

    1. Try to test your wifil connection in Settings/Wifi
    2. Ask your 3G service for setting information with 3G.

    Mine does this constantly and is driving me nuts! Normally, after it drops, it will bring up the available networks within range and I can choose my wifi and it reconnects with no problem. But sometimes it will ask me to reenter my wep password. This really was a problem since it's a fairly long pw. I figured out a shortcut in case anyone else is having this prob. Using notepad type in your wep pw and then copy it using the highlight function. Now every time it asks me to reenter the pw I simply tap once on the line and use the paste function. I just rebooted my iPad and it still had the pw copied. So this is what I do until apple fixes this.

    Wink iPad 2 (64/3G) drops wifi

    I too had the same problem. An amigo here in Madrid told me to try to reset all settings. I did this by going into settings (general) and at bottom hit the reset for all settings. Worked like a champ...he said that he had similar problems with his iPhone and an apple employee told him that it could be induced by an application that failed to load properly..??...FYI ... He said this procedure fixed his brand new iPhone 4 as well for not charging properly ....

    If you reset do you lose everything? Apps, email, etc.

    I reset my IPAD2 as instructed above and I can verify that I did not lose any data. So far so good for holding the wifi. Thx!

    I have recently had to have a replacement iPad 2 and I have been experiencing some problems with the wifi dropping out. I have reset all settings and so far so good, however if it does it again, then I will consider resorting it.

    Not too happy though, I have been a a happy iPad user since the start ! And hope to be untill the bitter end!

    Thanks in advance for replying to my post
