    Have had wi-fi connectivity issue since day one. Went to Apple Store on second day and was able to connect to their hot spot. It also connects to every other hot spots that I have a password for, and one that doesn't require a password. Sounds like my home network is the problem, but I have never had a connectivity issues with any other devices, and I have 3 computers running off of wi-fi and 2 Internet radios -- all working perfectly with no connectivity issues at all.

    What gives?

    Why don't you use WPA or WPA2 instead of WEP?...it's safer and it seems to be one of the suggestions Apple has made to remedy the connection issues.

    Is this something I can do easily? Don't really know much about routers.

    j4eric,

    If you tell me which router you have I may be able to walk you through the process. Let me know so that I can research it and get back to you...or if you happen to have one of the routers I have experience with, we'll get it done in a jiffy ;)

    Was finally able to connect to my home network thanks to Apple's customer care. They talked me through a reset of the communication settings on my iPad and it worked!

    For those of you that have a issue with WEP or encryption in general. You may want to just turn it off. I have a Linksys Router which supports filtering by MAC.

    So instead of enabling WEP just allow only certain devices to connect (each wireless iPad or Laptop, etc will have its own MAC address).

    This doesn't fix the problem.

    I have a Verizon Ultraline Series 3 9100EM. I've switched this to WPA2 and switched it from b&g to 'g' only. Still drops the wifi. (yes I restarted the router).

    It seems to drop it less often, but we'll see if that lasts...

    Everyone would have been tarring and feathering Microsoft if they'd dared to take this long to produce a software fix for such a big problem...
    (yes I know the fanboys will say it is only a minority, but it isn't - the reports first appeared within hours of the ipads going on sale 10 or so weeks ago - a lot of people have reported wifi problems)

    I agree with you wholeheartedly...if this was a Microsoft product, they'd be butchering it...although I have to admit, lately Apple seems to be getting more heat for these issues and the recent order problems (although unrelated to them) with the iPhone 4.
