    Does anyone else suffer from constantly losing their WiFi connection?
    This has only happened since upgrade to iOS 4.2.
    I have to constantly go back to "Settings" and switch between flight mode and normal to allow my ipad to reconnect. Anyone have an answer?

    No problems in fact my connection speed is blazing fast and consistent. I enjoy the upgrade and the features. Apparently the 4.3 is coming in December and giving the apple history they probably would charge users with lower than 4.2 .

    Are you the Tango Remote User??

    Hi All2Easy,

    I just noticed that you reported a problem with our Tango Remote App on the UK App Store. This problem may be related to your wi-fi problems. Did you read the FAQ in Tango Remote? We couldn't find any emails from you to our support dept. Please contact us and we will try to help you fix this problem.

    So far so good

    Never lost wifi before the upgrade. Lost it 2 times since upgrading the first day it was available for no apparent reason; however, am generally very pleased with the Ipad's performance under the new version. The wifi problem seemed to go away after the initial bout. I love Airprint with my HP c410a!!!!

    I have had a problem since my upgrade to 4.2. I have altered a setting within the wifi settings of my router to fix it. WMM in my router relates to multi media use. Since I enabled this I have had no further dropouts. Hope the is of some use to someone.

    I don't lose my connection often while using my ipad but whenever I power the ipad down and then restart it, the wifi doesn't automatically reconnect.
    I have to turn wifi off, thurn it back on and then choose my connection to get it going. This only started happening after the software upgrade.

    I have started loosing my Wi-Fi connection several times a day, I go into settings and tap on renew and some times it comes back. Maybe I will have to go to 3G full time just to use the ipad. I'm not having any problems with my wireless laptop losing the connection. I forgot to mention I also loose connection with the HP Eprint center,and they are down many hours in the day.

    Problems with wifi dropping here on 4.2 also. I normally never installed SBSettings but the wifi-dropping got so bad I installed SBSettings just to have fast access to turn wifi off then back on to get the signal back. No problems on 3.2x but I did have problems with all the 4.2 betas and now the final version. I hope they fix it but I truly doubt it.

    dropping wifi - Cured

    Having started this particular thread I felt I should let you know that my problem has resolved itself completely now I have changed my wifi router.
    I had a Linksys WAG160N router which worked perfectly OK with all my other kit - just not my ipad!
    I have now changed my router to a BT HOME HUB and the problem has gone away.
    I had tried everything with the Linksys including updating to the latest software from the support website, but nothing seemed to cure the problem. I don't understand why the BT Home Hub works where my Linksys didn't but I no longer care - It just works!!

    I tested to see what happened at my house this weekend when I ran as many devices going at once. I had 2 computers and my iPad (running Netflix) on for the better part of 10 hours while ripping down my DVD collection, watching show after show on the iPad and playing some online gaming. Not even a hiccup on any device.

    I have a Linksys WRT160Nv2 that is 1 year old and going strong.
