    Hi! Registering here as a new the new iPad owner :)
    But at the moment have an issue with subj. Googling have no result :(
    I creating wifi network on my MacBook pro and choosing this new network in iPad's networks list. In about a minute ip address received. Turning on iTunes on MacBook. iTunes showing iPad in device list. Look like all is ok. Sync works fine. But if trying to send book/audio or video file - connection lost. File did not sending, iTunes did not showing iPad in device list and iPad's network settings are blank - no ip, map etc
    Any suggestions ?

    Hi there...I don't have an answer for you, but maybe others will. I don't know if this will help, but have you tried to power down your modem and router and start over? Also, are you trying to do a wireless sync, if so, maybe try connecting your iPad to to your computer and try again.

    Thanks for reply! All is excellent with wifi networking through router, problems with ad hoc (computer to computer) connection - it's very unstable. Sometimes it works, but most of time - doesn't.. :/
    I will post the results of my further explorations.
    thanks for the links ! Of course i'll examine them..

    i'll find that i just could not drag and drop pdf files with ad hoc wifi connection. audio and video files copiing by drag and drop, but pdf - not. as workaround - using synchronization. and cable of course..
