    I am very frustrated by the frequent wireless signal drops I am experiencing. I cannot maintain a constant signal via wireless for more than 15 minures. I do not have the same issues with 3G nor with other computers getting a signal from my access point. I am no more than 15 feet away with a clear line to the access point.

    Has anyone figured out any iPad or router tweaks to improve this? I have turned off auto brightness but that didn't help.

    I am also facing frequent wireless disconnection issues. My Sony Vaio laptop does not have any problems when used in the same place.

    A suggestion I read elsewhere is to hold the ipad vertically! (obviously inspired by iphone4 issues!)

    Try holding it differently and see if you come up with some improvement!

    I'm having similar issues too. The iPad is asking for my wireless network's password every hour or so and the dang thing has 28 characters. I just copy and paste from the note tablet but it's a hasle I could live without. Sometimes I just turn off wifi and turn it back on and that works but still...
    My service provider prefers that I not change router since it's theirs.

    Wasn't a fix on the way from Apple?

    I am usually not even holding it since I have a nice case which holds the iPad at an angle. There is clearly an issue with the wireless connectivity. Hopefully it will get fixed.

    That is apple's response and I don't buy it. I have no issues with either my laptop or my wireless music streamer. The issue isn't the router. It is the iPad.

    as my edit states,it cleared up a device specific problem.i.e. I had one netbook that kept dropping.The firmware update resolved it. All other devices were connecting fine. Worth trying I guess.

    Unless I turn off wifi, I can't keep my iPad from connecting with my neighbor's unsecured network. They're about 200 ft. from my door.
