So I've been reading around here and other places.. I guess ios5 has some serious problems with wpa enterprise network.
I can't connect to my school's indoor wireless.. doesn't matter which building around campus. Outdoor wireless I can though since you have to go through vpn (juno pulse app).
Anyone know a work around?
I created a detailed blog post with video demonstration, description of various symptoms regarding the connection issues some users have been having with the iPad along with a workaround which works solidly for me. As I find posts with those concerns, I take the time to register (gosh why does every site require a registration!)...just to share the information. Good Luck

i had just updated my iPad2 with iOS 5.1.1, and the device stopped connecting to my hotspot modem. thanks for reminding me about the reboot option (hold down home+power buttons). that fixed it, and my iPad2 is now connecting.
unfortunately, i'm still seeing the wifi connectivity issues. it says it is connected but in actuality it lost its connection cuz all my apps complain about being offline. but my macbook will be connected to the same wifi and be online just fine. i was hoping that 5.1.1 would have fixed this, but alas, all is not paradise in iPad land.
by the way, i'm an apple fanboy. got iPads 1, 2, and 3 in the household.
i luv iOS--when it just works!
Never had issues, but after the last update I lose wifi connection awfully often on my ipad3
